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.

Why are you replacing the spark plugs again? Did you use the wrong ones last time? This article is for cylinder 6 misfire but all the same stuff applies to your cylinder #2 - https://www.obd-codes.com/p0306 A good DIY friendly diagnosis step is to not replace parts, but rather swap the coil pack fro...

Re: 2002 Taurus flashing check engine light, rough idle, & poor acceleration

There are many possible causes. To begin diagnosis, you'll need to scan for trouble codes. Note that when the check engine light is flashing the issue is much more urgent, as raw fuel could be going into the catalytic converter and damage it which is very expensive to replace. Scan for codes and pos...

Re: 2005 Taurus Check Engine Light

The too lean codes could mean a bunch of things, bad intake manifold gaskets, etc. The random misfire probably could be related. Did you change a bunch of parts hoping to fix it or did it just happen to have a bunch of new parts? How on earth do you figure the O2 sensors "seem to be clean"...

Re: 2000 Sable Stalling Mystery

Welcome! I would suspect an intermittent wiring fault, or something to do with EVAP since it seems to happen after a fillup. Gotta find a good diagnostician, not just a regular tech. Got any trouble codes to help give you some direction?

Re: 2001 Taurus starts idles ruff then dies! Starts with starting fluid, scanner specs

What is the code? P0171 or P0174 or both? Just guessing here but thinking a vacuum leak or not enough fuel pressure.

Re: 06 Taurus Cig. Lighter Issues

Welcome to the site. More than likely what is happening is one or both of two things: 1) The Taurus cig lighter outlet is always powered (even when the car is off), and the Corolla's is not 2) The battery on the Taurus is weak and needs replacement More than likely both of those apply.

Re: Is the 4th gen reliable?

After owning my 2000 Taurus with the 24V engine, I would absolutely recommend that engine & generation, especially if you don't encounter rust. Look for one with as low mileage as possible or with the most maintenance records. Stay away from the 12V engine (my 1992 Sable had that engine, it's no...

Re: Is the 4th gen reliable?

Power & reliability. Both V6's are 3.0L but definitely look for a Duratec.
