1998 V6 3rd Gen. Taurus LX

Hello to Taurus CCA members.

Intro: This car was gifted to me by a family member whilst on a visit to Georgia in October 2018 from Halifax Nova Scotia.
So for the return journey the question was do we accept the car and drive up the East Coast USA into Canada at Calais and on to our final destination in Halifax NS or do we return by air ?
We decided to take a chance ( the vehicle had 125 K miles on the clock ) and make it into a bit of an adventure. So the return journey covered 2155 miles in total via Atlanta and Charleston in South Carolina and through many states and major cities, including New York.
The only navigation equipment on board was a 12 yr old tattered road map, no Sat Nav and no mobile phone. The driver and passenger were two UK seniors. The car never missed a beat !

So now back in Halifax ( arrived on 15 th Oct last year ) and hoping to use the expertise and knowledge of the TCCA members to sort out some minor maintenance issues.
