  1. Hard To Steer

    Maintenance and Repair
    We had this problem with our 99 Sable. The leak was in the Teflon seal in the pressure line connection to the pump. We fixed the seal and rigged up a stopper with a tube to connect the pump filler opening to a Mityvac pump then pulled vacuum on the system and let it sit for a while. We released...
  2. Need Advice on New Rear Strut/Spring Setup

    Suspension, Handling and Brakes
    I have a pair of unused rear Gabriel gas struts for a gen 3 or 4 sedan if you're interested.
  3. NEEDED: Power Steering Diagram

    Suspension, Handling and Brakes
    Having changed the rack in a 99 Sable recently, you have my sympathy. Changing the rack was an ordeal, but bleeding the system afterward was unpleasant as well.
  4. 4th Gen Suspension Overhaul

    Suspension, Handling and Brakes
    I have a pair of Gabriel rear struts available if you need them.
  5. Ford Emblem Center Caps for Gen 4?

    Aesthetics, Interior, Wheels and Tires
    We had good success using a big rubber stopper and a Mityvac pump. Than helps to bleed the air out of the system, but remember that so me Ford pumps are just noisy and nothing will totally silence them.
  6. Lift entire front with jack

    Maintenance and Repair
    Use chocks even on a level surface.....
  7. New Member- Ford Taurus & Ford Focus

    Introduction Forum
    I have a 2014 Focus and a 2011 Fusion. Both excellent cars!
  8. Need a little bodywork.....

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    The subframe is bent, along with the front structure. Steering gear (Just replaced) is broken too. We were lucky to get it home. Insurance offered a generous settlement, so we took the money and signed it over. Now on to the next adventure, finding its replacement.
  9. Coming Out

    Odds and Ends
    I say nay nay. Neither of my Fusions (2007, traded in at 134,000 miles, 2011 with 94,000 miles) has burned or leaked a drop of oil. Well, my 2007 leaked a tiny bit from the cam cover gasket, but I fixed that......... I daresay that my 2014 Focus (purchased July 15, has 7100 miles now) has...

    Peh. A little Bondo, some spray paint, then she'll be as good as new......
  12. Need a cap for this engine part...

    Maintenance and Repair
    Air conditioning line? Best place to get a new cap is probably at a wrecking yard.
  13. Help passing smog - HIGH HC

    Maintenance and Repair
    The octane rating of the fuel used is not a factor. No need to run 91 octane fuel in a Taurus as they are designed to run on 87. The "mechanic" must own Chevron stock. Sometimes installing new oxygen sensors will clear up a high emission problem. Put in a new air filter. Change the oil...
  14. Rear spoiler question..

    Aesthetics, Interior, Wheels and Tires
    If that is your purpose, and you say you want to preserve the Centennial badge, then the spoiler doesn't belong on the car (Centennial).
  15. Headers for 3.0 Single Cam

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Doesn't your Taurus already have tubular header-style exhaust manifolds? My 2000 and 2004 LXs had them.
  16. CA Smog failure

    Maintenance and Repair
    Oxygen sensors.
  17. Parking Brake Light Always ON

    Maintenance and Repair
    Switch on the p-brake pedal could be bad or loose.
  18. Ford Equivalent..

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
  19. Inner brake pad missing - caliper piston scraping on rotor

    Maintenance and Repair
    Just turn up the radio......
  20. Pwer Steering Return Hose Size

    Maintenance and Repair
    What size is the return hose to the power steering pump? (That's the one that just clamps to the nipple on the p/s reservoir). Thanks.
