  2. Got a knock. Engine Rebuild or Crate?

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Hey all, My Taurus recently developed a knock. I caught it when it became audible, and haven't driven or ran it since. I hope damage to the crank is minimal. I'm going to pull the engine to get it fixed (The car has sentimental value for me). And I figured while I have the drivetrain out I...
  3. Gen1 repairs - what stuff do I need?

    Maintenance and Repair
    Hi guys, I haven't posted in years. I'm looking to fix up my 1990 Vulcan/AXOD. Thing that are weird/broke: 1. I blew the power steering last fall when putting it in storage and want to just put in a whole new system. Do I need anything other that a pressure hose, return line, and pump? 2...
  4. Generation 1 bumper cover

    Aesthetics, Interior, Wheels and Tires

  5. Bull Geek's 1987 Ford Taurus Wagon

    Taurus and Sable Project Log
    This thing is super cool. I'm glad there are still people who fix up Gen 1's. I want to work on mine, but I'm broke ^.^ I just need to keep it alive long enough for me to get the money. :D
  6. What do people do...

    Odds and Ends
    People on cell phones while they're driving. People who are driving vehicles so large they lack the skill necessary to properly maneuver it. People who own/drive useless vehicles (like Hummer H2's). People who slow down to a near stop to make a right turn into a driveway/sidestreet (where a stop...
  7. stutter into 2nd gear

    Maintenance and Repair
    No thoughts on this? Any opinions on that Lucas Transmission stuff? Also sorry about all the extra text. The forum here seems to pick up my HyperTranslate as text rather than a program... AfrikaansAlbanianArabicArmenianAzerbaijaniBasqueBelarusianBulgarianCatalanChinese (Simplified)Chinese...

  9. stutter into 2nd gear

    Maintenance and Repair
    When I make hard left turns from a dead stop the drive action stutters (like it's failing to shift but tries 3 or 4 times) while shifting into second. I'm thinking my gears/linkages could be worn down. I'm going to have to replace my tranny fluid soon as it's been near 30,000mi since I got it...
  10. To everyone who wants to modify their Vulcan

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    I'd buy a better head for my Vulcan........but then again I have been told I'm insane.
  11. Seatbelts...buckle Up, It's The Law

    Odds and Ends
    I always wear mine, it's a habit. I end up putting my seatbelt on even if I'm moving cars around in our driveway. (Sort of like locking my car in the garage when the windows are down.) It's a good habit to get into
  12. Ford Fiesta RS (2010)

    Other Rides
    I would love one of these either way. Off topic, but have you seen the new Fiat 500 Abarth? 170 hp and 206 lb. of torque in that little ugly box.......jeez.
  13. Interior, Paint smell

    Detailing and Cleaning
    in August I set about painting the bottoms of my doors as well as my rear valance (I'm poor and 20 year old paint isn't going to stand up to Ohio winters very long) anyway, it's been 2 months and the interior of my car still smells like aerosol paint. Does anyone know anything (soap, or...
  14. Ford Fiesta RS (2010)

    Other Rides
    I heard we aren't getting this in the States.
  15. Goldie, polished.

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    If you're from the northeast could I ask you how you have kept it so clean? Do you garage it in the winter?
  16. New filters!

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    Well my car leaks oil so it's constantly being replenished so I don't actually change it completely that often. I usually do every 6, new filter and the works. I need to find this leak and bring it to its demise!
  17. New filters!

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    I changed my air, oil and fuel filters today. (Also replaced the oil) After my dad got the fuel filter off (I'd never done it before and wanted to see how it was done) he looks at this terribly rusty filter and says "This looks like it could be the original one". So I backed it out of the garage...
  18. Real quick photos of my new car (crap quality)

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    Mine doesn't either, not does the clock backlight. And the front seats are deflated and the plastic moudlings are cracked >.< Not to hijack your thread, but does anyone know of a place that can make plastic (polymer) mouldings?
  19. Real quick photos of my new car (crap quality)

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    I'd kill for that interior!
  20. Unique Taurus..

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
