  1. Sousa632's Pontiac Torrent

    Other Rides
    It's been a while since I've posted (though I lurk quietly) so here's an update. The Torrent is doing ok. It's just shy of 182K miles now. Since I last posted, I've replaced the right caliper, both front caliper hoses and the front brake pads/hardware. I an going to be ordering a full set of...
  2. 36r3 vs. 58r3 everstart battery for a 2000 taurus?

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    Everstart is a bottom bargain brand. Like with anything electronics there's always the possibility of failure. That being said, did you see what the voltage was on the battery when it was not starting? Have you done a draw test to make sure you don't have a parasitic draw on the battery? What...

    Happy Mothers Day to all those mothers out there! I hope the weather was nicer than it was here in Jersey today and you were able to get out with mom and do something.
  4. Worth repairing / investing into?

    Maintenance and Repair
    Pull a part are going to be cheaper and are usually your better option cause YOU select the part. Most will post their price list or will give you a price list before entering. I would change the PS fluid and transmission fluid with MERCON V ONLY(I used Supertech Mercon V from Walmart in all...
  5. Sousa632's Pontiac Torrent

    Other Rides
    Jeff, Yep it's one of those stepper motors. Another update, I changed the oil today and used my Little Green Machine on the interior. I'll tell you...…. you never REALLY know how dirty cloth is till you take one of them to it. The interior looked fairly clean, with exception of the left foot...
  6. Sousa632's 2013 Hyundai Sonata

    Other Rides
    It's not a 2.0 it's the 2.4 Theta. If it was the 2.0T, my wife sure as hell wouldn't be driving it, I would :) I never ended up sending the second one out. The original one was really good but that was about 40K miles ago. It's due for another oil change so we'll see what they say on Thursday...
  7. How I saved over $1000. on parts with a donor car

    Aesthetics, Interior, Wheels and Tires
    BTDT with my old Durango. It had some rust, mismatched body colors, etc. Bought a little newer one(same generation) but an R/T in the same color with a blown motor and no title for $200. Swapped over about $1500 in parts and scrapped the shell for $150. :)
  8. Brake Lights

    Maintenance and Repair
    More than likely the Bosch ABS controller. It's a common failure across pretty much every car that uses the Bosch unit, my old 2001 Sable included. Drove it for 7.5 years with the light on.
  9. 1996 ford taurus with 1 rear wheel at -5 camber suddenly.

    Suspension, Handling and Brakes
    Did you hit something that would have tweaked the control arm (ie: pothole)?
  10. 1999 Taurus flashing Check Engine light

    Maintenance and Repair
    There is a reason why people suggest Motorcraft or BWD, myself included. I have not had any experience with an Accel coil in the 22 years of driving, but cheaper coils are usually cheaper in quality too. Hopefully you won't have any issues, and didn't clog a cat. How long have you been driving...
  11. Ford once again says goodbye to the Taurus

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    Sad to think it got the ax again. Honestly I like my Torrent but it doesn't have anywhere near the cargo space my wagon had. I still would love to get my hands on a newer SHO for a DD, or a Gen3 as a toy. Honestly I can't say that I'm surprised that the Sedan is going to be a thing of the past...
  12. Sousa632's Pontiac Torrent

    Other Rides
    Both tires were 0415 so January of 2015. I checked them before I went to the shop for new tires.
  13. Anyone have a TCCA bull logo

    Creating items for yourself, there's no issue however you cannot use the TCCA logo on products, then sell those items for profit. We made the shirts with permission of the site ownership way back when.
  14. Sousa632's Pontiac Torrent

    Other Rides
    That was dry rot to the point I could put things in those splits. It went all the way around the wheel. The rear tires are almost new, but the fronts obviously were worse than I thought they were.
  15. Sousa632's Pontiac Torrent

    Other Rides
    Well it's been a little over 2 months since I last updated. CEL never came back on like expected. Today I took the drivers side front wheel off because I've been hearing a little noise when going over bumps. I think it's the caliper hardware that's making the rattling because everything in the...
  16. Motorcraft Oil

    Maintenance and Repair
    Ask 100 people, get 100 answers when it comes to oil and filters. I primarily use Supertech oil changed at around 5K. Oil filter for my Fords, Motorcraft filter for my Torrent(and other GM's I've owned) ACDelco, filter for my wife's Hyundai..... STP cause the Hyundai's are much more expensive...
  17. DOHC Gas Mileage

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    Honestly, I don't even bother thinking about MPG in the winter..... the combination of morning no drive warm ups, running of the defroster that uses the AC compressor, winter blend gas, and overall cold temps leading to rich conditions and all of that will kill mileage. My Torrent has been...

    There's no need to resurrect a 10+ year old topic to say the link is dead.
  19. When Do You Throw In The Towel?

    Maintenance and Repair
    Honestly, I would love to have a fully paid off car in my driveway again :) So keeping a car running that's paid off is key. Here's a couple points: For the shifter, check this https://www.taurusclub.com/forum/98-solutions-common-problems-how-articles/175286-check-your-shifter-bolts.html That...
  20. No more Ford Taurus advertising

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    Sign of the time..... we're headed back into a circa 2008 vehicle economy so manufacturers are cutting back on what's not selling and putting more efforts into those that do sell.
