  2. GEN IV Wagon Springs

    Suspension, Handling and Brakes
    There are no less than 8 types of Taurus GEN IV Wagon Springs according to fordparts.com (see list below)!! :o Not only that, but the prices differ from $89.70 (code-F) to $194.63 (code-D) and that's EACH! Does anyone have information as to the real differences? Mine appeared to be the Cargo...
  3. 2003 Wagon Suspension Upgrades

    Suspension, Handling and Brakes
    Thanks to everyone who posted Taurus Gen IV Wagon suspension recommendations over the past few years on various threads. Based on what I've read here, I will share my experience. Below is a list of what I've done to my 2003 SE Wagon (owned since new) in the month of August, 2016. 2003 SE Wagon...
  4. Vulcan Cam Synchronizer/sensor Replacement

    Solutions to Common Problems and 'How To' Articles
    Update: Almost 10 months later, still quiet. In fact, I almost forgot about it!
  5. 2003 Wagon Rear License Plate Mounting Panel

    Maintenance and Repair
    The cracking seems to come from using larger than normal screws for the license plate, expanding the plastic nut and stressing the perimeter.
  6. 2003 Wagon Rear License Plate Mounting Panel

    Maintenance and Repair
    The black plastic panel that the rear license plate mounts to on my 2003 Taurus SE Wagon liftgate is cracked. The problem is I can't find a replacement anywhere. The wagons in the junk yard have the same problem. I tried countless web searches using every name/description I could think of...
  7. 2002 Vulcan Transaxle Warning Light Only in Park - No Other Time

    Maintenance and Repair
    Installed the Trans Range Sensor on 5/7 and all is still good on 5/14! I ended up using a pry bar and a lot of PB to get the old sensor off, which I ended up breaking. The gear selector shaft was rusted and bonded itself to the plastic sleeve in the range selector. Once I got it off and...
  8. 2002 Vulcan Transaxle Warning Light Only in Park - No Other Time

    Maintenance and Repair
    Thanks, Jeff K! Code = P0705. Bought a Trans Range Sensor from Rock Auto. It arrived yesterday, will install this weekend and report back, so this scenario can be archived and help others!!
  9. 2002 Vulcan Transaxle Warning Light Only in Park - No Other Time

    Maintenance and Repair
    I have been searching far and wide for a Transaxle Warning Light scenario similar to this one. The car runs and shifts great (well, like new) but at random times when I pull into my garage, parking space, etc. and put it in park, the Transaxle Warning light flashes. This happens AFTER I put it...
  10. Vulcan Cam Synchronizer/sensor Replacement

    Solutions to Common Problems and 'How To' Articles
    Thanks for the tip! I'm hoping that it will last longer than 6 months, since I think I caught it before it started to cause any damage. If I have to lube again, I'll use something heavier that doesn't gravitate down to the oil pan as fast. Ford should have put a wick running down the center...
  11. Vulcan Cam Synchronizer/sensor Replacement

    Solutions to Common Problems and 'How To' Articles
    I don't know if this will get read since this is a very old thread, but here's my cam sync experience anyway. We just obtained a 2002 SE Vulcan sedan with 40K original miles. Needless to say it just sat for many years, luckily in a garage. I spent over 5 months replacing all springs/struts...
  12. User Signature Adjustment

    Site Feedback and Forum Issues
    I need to change my signature as it lists Bulls I no longer have and done't list my new acquisitions. There is no way that I can see for me to do that. Thanks!
  13. Engine Cooling Fans Running Constantly-no other symptoms

    Maintenance and Repair
    Cool. I'll pick one up at pull-a-part ASAP. Good Gen3's are disappearing from the junkyards. I also got the last non-rotted out fuel filler tube for a Gen2 a few weeks ago.
  14. Engine Cooling Fans Running Constantly-no other symptoms

    Maintenance and Repair
    Thanks again!!! Let me know if you need any further details. I would like this thread to be a good reference for others.
  15. Engine Cooling Fans Running Constantly-no other symptoms

    Maintenance and Repair
    Thanks, it was the AC HP switch!! Apparently, that switch overrides the ECT signal at the PCM. I figured it had to be AC-related as there were no codes and the coolant temps looked accurate through the ODBII. I unplugged the AC relay, fuse, diode and relay, which did nothing, so it had to be...
  16. Engine Cooling Fans Running Constantly-no other symptoms

    Maintenance and Repair
    The problem is with my 1999 Taurus SE 3.0 Vulcan. The engine cooling fans are on all the time with the engine running regardless of temperature. The AC does not work at the moment (I'll deal with that next summer). The high and low speed fan relays work (swapped both), the ECT reads the correct...

  18. 1989 Taurus Master Cylinder

    Maintenance and Repair
    It ended up that the RF caliper was bad from Advance. I also found out that you can't bleed the paired line when the other has an issue. I couldn't bleed the LR since the RF caliper wouldn't bleed. I made a termination fitting which I screwed into the RF port on the master cylinder. The LR...
  19. 1989 Taurus Master Cylinder

    Maintenance and Repair
    I have run into a tough one. I replaced the RF caliper and LR wheel cylinder on my '89 wagon. Now I can't get fluid out of the master cylinder ports to the RF and LR brakes. The master cylinder blows a little bit of air out the two rear ports controling those brakes. The wagons have the...
  20. Front Stabilizer (sway Bar) Broke On Gen Ii Taurus - Diy?

    Maintenance and Repair
    Well, I finished the job. I wire wheeled the sway bar I got from the junkyard. It was also weakened underneath the U brackets. I cleaned, primed and painted it, hoping to extend it's life. There's nowhere else to get them!! The rest was clearing the area. First is to drop the back of the...
