  2. Goodbye, guys.

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    So far, here's what I've found out: According to Experian (A report the dealership chain JDByrider chooses for all cars) the vehicle's odometer was tampered with roughly 2 months before I purchased it. Geico is probably the worst insurer ever, they tried to withhold a rental car even though I...
  3. Goodbye, guys.

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    Thank you, as am I. It happened in about 3 minutes total from key on to engulfing fire. My stepdad is a cop so he's got a good head on his shoulders but I only cared about his and my family's safety - heck with the car, everyone's written off a Taurus at some point in their lives. :P Some more...

    Geico is continuing to investigate but my assumption is leaking fluid somewhere and a hot catalytic converter, I wasn't even here when it happened; was at a friends and my stepdad tried to move it to get his car out of the driveway. :/

    It's with a heavy heart I report True Blue #250093 was w/o (written off) Saturday night owing to a catastrophic engine compartment fire. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone on here for all the help you've given me and for taking the time to help me learn about my bull. I'll never forget any...

    Engine and Drivetrain
    How would I go about diagnosing a sticky IAC?
  8. P0156 - RE: Haynes manual

    Engine and Drivetrain
    yeah that's the one. there's one coming straight down off the tri-pipe (main exhaust? before the cat) and then there's another on a totally separate pipe after what looks like a cat (between the fender and the engine, passenger side)
  9. P0156 - RE: Haynes manual

    Engine and Drivetrain
    yeah, I found 'em. theres two, one nearing dead center and then another more to the passenger side. I assume it's the first of the two?
  10. P0156 - RE: Haynes manual

    Engine and Drivetrain
    RPMs are below 1k (somewhere around there yeah) and it's stalling out fairly easy. I had the o2 sensor powertrain code as well as 2 misfiring plugs, nothing about the IAC came up. I'm gonna finish this up and if it's still doing it, I guess she's getting a new IAC tonight too. >.< When you say...
  11. P0156 - RE: Haynes manual

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Replacing an o2 sensor tonight in the frigid wet cold because a serious loping issue arose. Replaced the coil pack, all plugs and wires and it's still acting a fool. Had a powertrain code P0156 which means the o2 sensor on the firewall side (right?) is failing. The Haynes manual says there are...

    One last (unanswered) question: Is there a difference between the models of AX4? Like, my information sticker on the driver's door indicates "TR" as being "X" can someone help me decipher which would work? U vin

    Maintenance and Repair
    Another buzzword I've been hearing regarding the AXOD lineage is "notching the drums" - it was explained in a very technical way to me but I'm ignorant when it comes to transmissions, automatics especially - what does this mean? I mean, I'm handy with the tools that I have and I've done an...

    Also, could a bad TRS cause these issues? I'd rather start replacing small shxt first, instead of jumping head first into dropping the pan and replacing a torque converter..

    Fluid level is fine and is nice and red, no smell of burning or anything. I checked out this thread [http://www.taurusclub.com/forum/98-solutions-common-problems-how-articles/91101-how-i-repaired-ax4n-tranny.html and it seems like this might be my problem (hesitation to engage from a stop, but...

    >Titanium Found your problem. you're looking for an SE with the manual, not the automatic. ;) Edit: That is an SE.. @[email protected] Jeeez. Mine's pegged at $28, and some change

    Ok so two serious driveability issues have come up (we're at mile marker 136,200 now) First, during a turn (intersection left, for example) I will lose driving force and RPMs will increase momentarily until something "catches" and forward momentum continues. The period of time the delay occurs...
  18. Minor fender bender, looking to fix it myself

    Maintenance and Repair
    I think what op is looking for is the bolt/weld locations for the front wing, which I don't have access to Might wanna use the search bar and look for "remove fender"
  19. Silly questions

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    This post relates to the D186 platform, not D3 1) What's the hump that runs between the rear passenger seats? Is it the exhaust tunnel or is it a super seekrit transmission tunnel? 2) How many decades would it take to convert a Taurus to RWD? 3) Would I be crazy to buy a newer Falcon XR6...

    This would be my guess. Seems like the control panel has quite literally bought the farm. Mine goes haywire from time to time, spewing nonsense out of the display and not turning on at all somedays. C'est la vie. :mellow:
