  1. 1999 Ford Aftermarket Deck Installtion... :/

    Electronics, Security, Audio and Visual
    I'll have to keep you in mind if I ever decide to get a kit and replace my factory setup - Considering it's theoretically the same for a MACH and tweeters (And speakers).....The factory CD works great, and doesn't skip, unless the CD is REALLY bad (Of course)...But I like having the track time...
  2. )Door Unable to Close

    Electronics, Security, Audio and Visual
    I had my '97 in PA, and now my '02 in NY - So I feel your OH coldness - I had to really ream on my door last winter as well - Glad I'm not the only one with that little fix! Honestly though, I've never had another vehicle do that to me, and I've had some real clunkers (Like a 1992 LeBaron...
  3. Gas Milage on the Duratec Engine

    Engine and Drivetrain
    The most I've got was about 33, usually it's 29 or so, with the Vulcan (At 70 mph). Like GASKICKER said, not flat, but not hilly either - Interstates rock! EDIT: I keep my tires at around 36, seems to be pretty balanced for me. I don't like a too soft a ride, I like to feel SOME stuff...
  4. Engine steam on idle.....

    Maintenance and Repair
    Fixed! Got angry from the awful coolant smell when burning so I basically shoved the remaining rubber hose all the way to the upper coolant hose and clamped it. No more leak and you can't even tell that there was ever the metal elbow! People tell me all the time that this car will nickel and...
  5. Engine steam on idle.....

    Maintenance and Repair
    Found a leak! It's hard to explain - There's a 90 degree metal hose coming off of my upper coolant hose - And it's two nice little streams coming out of it and spraying all over my cooling fans (And engine). Coolant sure stinks when it's burning, and it's brown. Any idea what that little line...
  6. Mach RCU's for sale

    For Sale
    I wonder if perhaps I should just get both a Gen 3 and 4 Mach RCU, see what I like better (I prefer loudness at times, bass at others)...Then sell the other. I wasn't aware there was that much of a difference in the two. Do they distort artificially after half volume like the regular RCU? I...
  7. MACH RCUs on eBay

    Electronics, Security, Audio and Visual
    lol...I thought so. Actually I almost pooed myself when I read it, I'm like wait a minute.....Still, 80 watts peak is pretty good for factory, I would think.
  8. Taurus Parts: MACH, Visors, Interior & Exterior

    For Sale
    lol @ the moonroof I'm leaning towards Mach for the simplicity of it. And with the moonroof, I read on here that the rollover bars (Or whatever is there to help the passengers) would have to be cut out to put in a moonroof, so I'm not going to bother with it. I got another Taurus for the...
  9. MACH RCUs on eBay

    Electronics, Security, Audio and Visual
    Wait - 20 RMS?! I thought it was 20 watts PEAK x4 - Not RMS. If that's the case, then it's actually what, 160 peak, right? That's like an aftermarket head unit almost.....
  10. Best replacement speakers for front 6x8s?

    Electronics, Security, Audio and Visual
    Is the Frequency Response the same as the Sensitivity? For example: Rockford Fosgate Prime R1682 6"x8" 2-way car speakers at Crutchfield.com - I know they're two way, but with a factory amp wouldn't they work? Remember, just an example. There's some with Sensitivity in the low 80-100db's! With...
  11. 2006 Ford Taurus Front End Vibration >60mph

    Suspension, Handling and Brakes
    I was thinking alignment myself. Also, mine did that until I replaced both ball joints and inner and outer tie rods. Actually in my case, the ball joint on the passenger in particular busted in half right as it was being pulled out - I just hope if that's the issue, it gets repaired - Hate to...
  12. 3.0 OHV love it or hate it?

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    I agree with the HP. I think my Aurora has 220, but I never push it, so to me, it's moot. Frankly, I can't tell much difference between the 3.5 in it, and the 3.0 in my Ford - At least nothing drastic, considering it's smaller. Honestly I think my Taurus edges out with more mileage.
  13. Taurus Parts: MACH, Visors, Interior & Exterior

    For Sale
    Levels....And JBL With those tweaks - Are they really bad? I found a few G3's with tweeters and harnesses locally for $30, you pull - And I just wasn't sure. There's a JBL but the sub is pretty bad off - It flat out rattles - So could I just get it and would it make sense to just try to find...
  14. Best replacement speakers for front 6x8s?

    Electronics, Security, Audio and Visual
    I was always curious if the smaller speaker would sound any different for a 6x8 hole - Since they don't seal. Though I have to admit, I've always liked Boston.....Had a pair of their PC speakers back in the day, and they rocked! Does anyone know if Bose makes a 5x7 or 6x8 for our cars? Might...

  16. Best replacement speakers for front 6x8s?

    Electronics, Security, Audio and Visual
    Tweeters I would think that the extra tweeters in the 6x8's would allow for better imaging - They sounded pretty nice in my '97 with the separate tweeters. I think it would be more of a personal preference though. Otherwise, I don't think it'll hurt the amp or anything.
  17. Best Way To Clean An Engine Bay?

    Aesthetics, Interior, Wheels and Tires
    I always wondered if Easy Off would work - There's a bit here at the house LOL
  18. Engine steam on idle.....

    Maintenance and Repair
    Here's a dumb question (And I bet there's something in the topic finder) - Is that easy to do? It's going for another oil change soon (Almost 2500 miles on it already), would it be easier to just have the garage do it?
  19. 3.0 OHV love it or hate it?

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    Then try putting over 270 miles on the odometer @ 70+ mph and using just over half a tank (Olean, to Rochester, to Buffalo, then back to Olean). Not quite sure why your mileage sucks. I remember taking my '97 GL from Warren, PA to Athens, AL, and filling up 4 times - So I do NOT believe the...
  20. Engine steam on idle.....

    Maintenance and Repair
    I don't think it has - It gets rather toasty in the cabin
