Re: Cop car fascination?

I'm not sure what the fascination is but there's quite a P71 following so I'm guessing we'll see more guys here as time goes on ;)

Re: 2014 SHO PTU warranty garbage

Try getting a second opinion from another dealer or call Ford higher up to see what they say.

Re: 2014 SHO PTU warranty garbage

That's unfortunate but that's the rules. I'm surprised it has an "aftermarket" PTU because as far as I know Ford is the only one that makes them... maybe you could ask the dealer to show it to you?? PTUs are definitely a problem across the board for AWD Fords. As are the water pumps that l...

Re: Wheelskins cover

Oh I hate steering wheels that are too thick :D

I can't really give you any tips but I would think over time it should smooth out some as you have your hands all over it ... ??

Re: how can I disable the theft deterent

Does it have a factory alarm system or aftermarket? If it's aftermarket you should take it to a car audio installer type place and not the dealer.

Re: What kind and how much transmission fluid?

You would never catch me going 150K miles on trans fluid, it's not worth the risk IMHO. Especially when you can't drain and refill the entire capacity (i.e. torque converter).

Re: What kind and how much transmission fluid?

Why don't you just go to the local Ford dealer and buy the right fluid? They'll have it in stock I'm sure.

Re: 2013 PI Headliner issue

DIY it or find a cheaper independent mechanic to do it, you have the instructions. New headliners are always prohibitively expensive.

Re: Back of car riding on wheels??

If it's a 2005 model year, then it was built before 12/05. But it's definitely not AWD.

Re: New guy in KS 2013 Taurus

Welcome to the site, PurpleZJ. Two biggest issues to know are: 1. if it's AWD the PTU (transfer case) can barf fluid and end it's life, somewhat common. 2. as the motors get more miles on them the water pump can leak. But it leaks internally and if not caught right away it will destroy the entire en...

Re: 2004 Taurus SE Alternator issue?

Welcome to the site. It sounds exactly like a failed alternator. If it's not charging, it wears the battery down because of electrical demand.

All you can really do is just check all the electrical connections to be sure nothing came undone or loose, or broken wires, etc.

Re: Door weather-stripping

If it was me, I'd just push it back into place. If it pops out again, put a light coat of adhesive on it and push it back and it should stay - https://amzn.to/2jjo4Ar - IMHO it's too small an issue to warrant buying a new weatherstrip because they're actually pretty expensive for what they are.
