Talking Taurus Enthusiast needing some advice :)

I'm not sure how I've not been a member here for years. I tried logging in numerous times with different usernames, but basically came to the conclusion that I've never registered before today!


I'm a Taurus owner since 1997, with the following list under my belt:


1992 Taurus LX - 3.8L Essex, Medium Cranberry Metallic, Gray Leather Interior

1993 Taurus SHO - 3.2L, Ebony?, Gray Leather Interior

1993 Taurus SHO - 3.2L, Custom two-tone: Ultra Red? upper, Ebony? lower, Black Leather Interior

2003 Taurus LX - 3.0L Vulcan, Spruce Green Clearcoat Metallic, Beige Cloth Interior

2004 Taurus SEL - 3.0L Duratec, Dark Shadow Gray Clearcoat Metallic, Gray Cloth Interior

2011 Taurus SEL - 3.5L Cyclone?, Ingot Silver Metallic, Black Cloth Interior



Grew up with my dad owning a gas station/repair shop in a very small town. Learned everything I know about cars from him. He owned a few Taurus/Sable cars as well, over the years!



Joined the forum to ask about some maintenance issues on my current 2011 Taurus, which, at 103,000 miles, has had 3 of the 4 brake hoses replaced because of bulging, as well as numerous other smaller things go wrong, that I don't feel should go wrong on a car of this age and mileage. Hope to find some help here!
