  1. What is the future of the SHO? (Taurus in general)

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    So I'm a Ford guy for life. I have a 13 Mustang GT and an 07 Taurus. I plan on keeping the Taurus for a few years then selling it and hopping into a 13+ SHO. I just need the power (350+hp) and in my price range it's either a Mustang 5.0 which I already have or a Taurus SHO. I love the new...

    Any thoughts on this? What if the tranny I have in now is better, is it worth it to replace? I already made the appointment but just started thinking it's not like they're gonna put a brand new one in. I will have this car another 2 years tops. What are your opinions.

    Maintenance and Repair
    On the contraire. I'll admit she's been sitting around in favor of my mustang since it's been nice out. Have driven it a few times and kept her washed. The trans situation kinda bummed me out so it took a backseat on the to do list ANYWAY. I took it to the dealer this morning after getting an...

    Topped her off with a half quart of the the proper trans fluid. Me and the old lady most likely won't be using it on this beautiful weekend but if I see Monday there's been no improvements it's time to take it to the dealer.

    Alrighty due to the tranny making me nervous I just got around to properly checking the fluid as instructed on here. Here's what my dipstick looks like OxxxxxO (Do not fill if in checkered area) My fluid is at the very beginning of the first dot. What now fellas. Thanks for the help all.

    Maintenance and Repair
    Well, dipstick showed good trans fluid level. Guess it's going. Also within the last week whenever I'm taking a hard left it slips out of gear completely and red lines. Pretty depressing. The jerk from 1st to second is worse than ever. Bullshyt. Hopefully they repair it. They'll probably just...
  8. Am I leaking gas? Gas goes way too quick

    Maintenance and Repair
    Put $10 in last night it said 68 Miles to E. Wake up this am and it's on low fuel sign. Also I don't drive the car hard and say I have a full tank the miles to e will go down double what they should. What are the things I should get checked out? I know look under car to see if gas is leaking but...

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    ^Great looking Taurus. And yep it was beautiful here in NE PA too, sunny and about 60. Snapped these pics today of my silver v6 workhorse after getting her washed up after working her out on the highway some. Got 15% tint done all around yesterday morning. Loving how she turned out!
  10. What Have You Done To Your Bull Today?

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    Well here she is. My silver v6 workhorse with 15% all around. Was a beautiful sunny day, gave her a wash after stretching her legs on the highway, then snapped a few pics. I'm really pleased how the overall look came out with the tint. Next is chrome exhaust tip Monday morning : )
  11. What Have You Done To Your Bull Today?

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    My badge doesn't look tacky at all looks extremely clean and professional. And the 15% came out beautiful btw. I'll post pics tomorrow, it's been raining pretty much all day. As for the chrome exhaust tip, you just need a sawzall or a handhed saw to trim off the "curved piece " then just pick...

    Getting my old lady tinted at 9am tomorrow. Real excited. Already added a v6 badge and putting a chrome tip on the exhaust Monday. Will post post pics of my old lady with 15% tomorrow.

    Maintenance and Repair
    Correctly? No I might just dump a bottle in though. If it's empty I'll figure out by putting some in.

    Car jerks when going from 1st to 2nd and doesn't have good response at all in reverse. Terrible In reverse actually. Feels like I'm driving a manual and haven't fully engaged when reversing sometimes. Other Times it's fine. The jerk is consistent however from 1st to 2nd. Am I just low on tranny...
