    Hi Tom You might want to check out Crutchfield.com. They sell the Metra kits with the wiring harness adapters. It might make your life easier also! Jay 1999 SE Sport
  2. 1999 Taurus flashing Check Engine light

    Maintenance and Repair
    Hello! The Taurus is still running great after 2 weeks! Better than it has in a long time. The F150 I purchased helped in this situation. It gave me transport while the Taurus was in the shop. A very strange situation having a backup vehicle. It is also very strange to have 2 good running...

    Maintenance and Repair
    Hi everyone! A local repair shop, recommended by the Ford advisor, found the last issue. It looks like the rear O2 sensor would occasionally "Hang up", causing the rear bank to overload. That would explain a lot. It may have been fixed. I will find out. A Ford F150 4x4 was purchased in the...

    Hi, It was the vacuum fuel pressure regulator. The one you can easily see on the right side. I will be adding another Ford to my stable on Tuesday. It is newer & a lot bigger! :) Jay
  5. Which products are recommended for rear drum brakes?

    Suspension, Handling and Brakes
    Hi! I found a Power Stop Evolution Ceramic Brake kit for my 1999 Taurus on Amazon. It was less than $200 for rotors, drums, pads & shoes. That's with the rear wheel cylinders. That was less than the local parts store for Semi met pads & shoes, by quite a bit! "Your mileage may vary" Jay

    Hi Automender, It was a bit over $700 for the fuel regulator, plugs, wires, & some vacuum line replacement. The dealer shop rate is one of the lowest here. Only Fleet Farm is cheaper. After the Cat replacement, my car is back to normal. It feels weird after not having it for 10 days! Jay

    Hello everyone, The problem was a bad Cat. One was plugged. This was caused by a bad fuel regulator. Thank goodness I found a reputable muffler shop. They only charged me $350 to replace the front one. I pick it up tomorrow, we shall see what happens. Jay

    I got it back today. I made it 2 miles & it died. The dealer sent a tow. When I talked to the service advisor, he said all further repairs would be free. I did get to talk to the tech who worked on it & gave him some insight into the issue. There is hope my message made it to them. At least...

    Hi John, It started on Thursday as a slight miss. Friday it was bad, I parked it. Monday I changed the coil. It at least started & didn't flash the Check engine light nor did it kick out any codes. I think one of the brittle vacuum lines broke. It's in for repair now. Jay

    Hi, I did drive it again, the flashing Check Engine light started right away. It did kick out codes this time. P0303, P0304, & P0305 It is a misfire issue. BTW, it has only 67K miles on it. Jay

    Hi. My Taurus has been acting up lately. It has been driven a lot more recently. Coming home from work last night, I had no power. I barely made it to 60. It was a tough 18 miles on an 80 MPH freeway. I got off at my exit, it started bucking & barely moving. That's when the check engine light...

    I had Goodyear Assurance Triple Treads installed on my 99 SES. They have been good tires & I have had zero issues with them. Regular pressure checks & rotations are done. Today was a good day to have them, lot's of snow fell, great traction! So 20K miles so far, I am happy! Jay

    Amazingly, the errors have cleared. Also, when I decelerate, I now have some engine braking. That is something that was not before. It is very nice now. Jay

  16. New OBD2 errors

    Maintenance and Repair
    Hi! I am now getting P1132 & P1152 errors. It looks like this is pointing to the bank 2 HO2S or The O2 sensors. Is anyone out there familiar with this? It would be nice to narrow it down a bit. Thanks!! Jay
  17. OBD II errors

    Maintenance and Repair
    Hello! I did replace that short PCV Hose. It is weird that I found a package at the local Fleet Farm with some funny shaped hoses marked Ford. Now my OBD II errors have gone away! Thank you Sheila! I am calling that Service Manager tomorrow! Jay

    Hi! The picture Sheila posted looked like it was under the throttle body. The only reason I found it was my Neutral Safety Switch went bad. Removing the Air Cleaner body showed it. Jay
  19. OBD II errors

    Maintenance and Repair
    Hi! I think I may have isolated this issue? The short PCV Vacuum hose at the air intake end is rotted & cracked. Hissing can be heard while the engine is running. Does that sound like the issue? Jay

    Hi Jim, I talked to Autozone & got a bewildered look. That was mentioned to someone who used to work there & he said that was not a surprise. Thank goodness I have a ScanGuage II in my car! He suggested using starter spray to track down the leak. I am going to try that if it ever dries out here...
