Re: 2007 Ford Taurus Shudders

Did you look at the inside wheel edges for true-ness? CV joints don't get bent. I would check to see if you have an engine misfire. Scan for trouble codes even if the check engine light isn't on. Engine misfires can be similar to what you're describing, they feel like a trans shudder but they're not...

Re: 2007 Ford Taurus Shudders

How do you know your tires need balancing? Start with the basics and don't put in that trans additive yet.

Re: 2007 Ford Taurus Shudders

A shudder could be caused by many things. An engine misfire, transmission problem, or drivetrain problem. Scan for trouble codes first. I wouldn't just put in shudder fix in the trans as a guess.

If I had to blindly guess I would say you have a bent wheel. How do you know your tires need balancing?

Re: Code P013C

Wow. Have you checked for TSBs? This is getting ridiculous.

I wonder if your converter is failing or underperforming? That's not officially a cause but it does make me wonder.

Re: 2003 Taurus stalling

I would say scan for diagnostic codes first, and if possible use the same tool to watch live sensor readings to ensure proper fuel pressure, Idle Air Controller function, etc.

Re: 2009 taurus shifting problems

Welcome. Check the transmission fluid level and condition, that's the first step. Then, I would try to read the codes using a different code reader, possibly a more advanced scan tool. The low gas and tire pressure warnings shouldn't be related.

There usually is no ABS light, just a general brake light, the same one that lights up when you put on the park brake.

I found a TSB technical service bulletin that may apply to your car, is this the same symptoms you're having? TSB # 10-17-4

Re: P0705 2010 taurus 3.5 liter. Where is the range sensor located?

I'm not sure of it's exact place off-hand. On older vehicles it was on the outside of the trans, and on newer they can be mounted internally. I would suggest you look up both the part and the associated diagram at Ford's own parts site -- https://www.fordparts.com it should show you. FYI some more i...

Re: Rear Disc Conversion for 2007 Taurus?

I believe your VIN will tell you if you have ABS, I find it highly unlikely that you don't. Perhaps the dash bulb is burned out or missing??

Re: Which amperage alternator do I have?

I wouldn't worry too much about if if the lighting is LED. The draw is soooo much less than regular lighting. Besides your alternator only charges when the PCM tells it to charge, AFAIK. Worst case you can just install a 220A down the road. If ETIS says it's heavy duty, I'd say it's the 200A. Consid...

Re: Where can I get a key cut?

Dealer or local locksmith (not a chain). Cutting the key and programming it are two very different things so be aware that it will need to be cut and programmed. Let's hope you have 2 existing keys to make programming easier.

Re: Which amperage alternator do I have?

Good question. Off-hand I'm not sure how you'd check. I think it's safe to say though that the most powerful alternator would be on police vehicles so you could rule that one out. Has your alternator stopped charging?

You don't need any fuel additives, for a long time. Octane booster is a waste of money for your vehicle. Buy the 87 octane gas, if you hear knocking, you really shouldn't ever, but if you do, then go up a grade. If you have normal driving habits, 93 octane is a complete waste of money. The car's sys...

Re: 2000 Taurus Parallelism Angles

I've never heard of anyone using the terms steering heads or parallelism but I'm gathering that you changed steering components and need to align the suspension. I do not know of any sources for that information, typically here alignments are done by mechanics with specialized laser equipment.
