Along with that oil change do a trans fluid pan drop and filter change. Use Mercon V ATF only.
I have a question for you Breeves. When I bought the car there was a sticker under the hood that says the transmission and fuel system was serviced at 46k. At 63k now do you still think I should worry about trans fluid and filter change?

Thanks for the positive comments and feedback from all of you.

If your car looks like that and you still feel it needs a detailing...I feel embarrassed now.

That's a very clean wagon. Nice find!

Nice wagon, sounds like you got a Taurus for the same reason we did. Our first was a 98 Wagon...that our son sent to an early death when he was involved in an accident. Luckily we had also picked up a 99 Sable LS Sedan before he did in the Taurus. But ours have saved us a bunch of miles on our Explorer and on the SHO. We really fell in love with these cars and are also keeping our eyes open for another wagon since I really miss the station wagon, and really like them.

Thanks for the compliments. I feel like I found a great car. You right about the rims, not a single scuff on any of them. With that being said I am kind of thinking of doing a balck powdercoat or black paint to get it more stealthy looking.

I'm tinting the widows today 35% which is the darkest allowed in Texas and I have started the debadging process as well. I think with some black rims this car would really have a stealth look to it.

Peace

Tint is awesome, I have the same. Might I suggest finding some Gen 4 SE/SES rims? The design goes perfectly with the bubbly shape of the Gen 3 body! Should be plentiful at a yard.

I just looked at a few pics online of those rims. I do think they would look pretty good. I may see if I can find four and then try to paint them myself with a black satin finish. Sounds like it might be a pretty good project for me.

My rims are 15x6 and some of the ones I was looking at are 16x6.5. Any suggestions on tire size if I went up to the 16?

Stock, 215/60 R16. You could go to 225 if you wanted to also.
