Re: ford five hundred code p0301

Wow, your mechanic friend told you to not repair a misfire? That's terrible advice. That is such stupid advice when you live somewhere that does emissions testing, let alone California! I don't know about the annal mileage part, but see https://www.obd-codes.com/p0301 for help on that code, and stop...

Re: 2000 Taurus transmission overdrive issue

I had a 1992 Mercury Sable with a slipping transmission. Being young I thought a full fluid flush would help. Nope, that was a waste of money.

First thing's first. What's the level and color (condition) of the fluid? If the fluid level is low it can cause various problems.

I'm not sure about the MX but I have BlueDriver and it's Ford friendly (as in it supports enhanced Ford functions) - https://amzn.to/2DV9KUJ

Re: SYNC “battery saver”?

I bought a 2011 F150 new, had it 4.5 years and went through 5 batteries. It just got low because I didn't drive it much. Do you drive your car daily? There are lots of things that slowly drain your battery if you let the car sit, there's no way around that with modern cars, short of physically disco...

Re: 2003 Taurus Fuel Gauge Always Empty

If you do, make sure you seal the metal hole air tight so you don't get moisture or exhaust fumes coming up through there.

Re: 2014 Taurus roof trim coming off

I've been running Ford forums for 16 years now, if Ford will cover the labor and you pay for the parts, you're getting a deal. When the warranty is done, it's done.

Re: Possible reprogramming? 2015 Taurus trans swap

Did you not have powertrain warranty still? Why did you swap the trans, and what did it come out of? I'm not sure just off-hand if PCM or TCM needs reprogramming.

Re: Accessing 2006 Taurus check engine codes

If you want a reasonably priced DIY device, I highly recommend BlueDriver, it reads Ford enhanced codes and works on many vehicles. Auto parts stores are free but they exist to sell you parts that you may not need.

Re: blind spot not working

oooh before spending that kind of cash, I would properly diagnose it. Scan for diagnostic codes to see if something is set. It could be as simple as a cut or break in a wire that would cost a few bucks to fix. I'd hate to see you just buy that part and not have it solve your problem.

Aha so now you see how important it is to post the actual code(s) ;) See https://www.obd-codes.com/p0352 In light of the new information, don’t worry about spark just yet, focus on the COP wiring, maybe you have a cut or break in the wiring, or it rubbed through against another part.

Re: 2009 Taurus Engine continues to misfire after replacing spark plugs and coil packs

Codes never indicate to replace parts, merely where to begin diagnosis. Forget what AutoZone says, they are not experienced technicians, they are parts sellers. I don't think a knock sensor could cause this issue. You'd be more likely to have a P0325 or similar code if it's a knock sensor. I can tel...

Are you out of comprehensive warranty? The battery is covered for 3 years or whatever mileage (60K?). Did you talk to the dealer today?

Ask your local dealer service department. Would take mere minutes with your VIN.
