  1. Anyone know what this is called???? 2000 Ford Taurus exhaust hanger broken

    Maintenance and Repair
    The rubber part F6DZ-5F262-DA is what typically breaks from age. I just changed mine. Still available. Not sure about the plastic piece. Check with dealer or JY 96-07 is the same parts for this...
  2. Need help with Motorcraft YCC-337 Compressor

    Maintenance and Repair
    Hi Don, Compressor is easily removed & installed from the top. Simply remove the l.h. fan, remove the 4 bolts on compressor and both compressor & manifold will lift out. Takes less than 1 hour. Some people insist making a lot of work for themselves by removing from the bottom. If I were...

  4. Which hose to flush transmission from? PICS

    Maintenance and Repair
    It's the 3/8" (smaller) top hose. 1 - Add another (preferably 3/8" clear tubing) to cooler pipe once the hose is disconnected. 2 - Place & secure both hoses into a 5 gallon bucket. 3 - If you want to flush ALL fluid out of the torque converter, start car, place in N and let it pump...
  5. Trans "clunks" when warm when shifting from P to D

    Engine and Drivetrain
    All 5 solenoids are on the valve body which faces the driver side tire. Not in the oil pan. Only need to remove the cover, not the entire body. I done this job about 2 weeks ago. Not difficult, just time consuming. https://www.sonnax.com/parts/4069-remanufactured-valve-body
  6. Late shift into first, high RPMs at start, and no one can figure it out...

    Maintenance and Repair
    1996-99 does not have the "dog bone" torque strut as on 2000-07. But don't worry, it's easy to install on 96-99 vulcan. I installed on my 97. Go to JY, gather brackets & hardware from a 2000-07 with vulcan. Purchase new torque strut. Strut tower will need to have 2 holes drilled to...
  7. trans slams from 1st to 2nd when coasting downhill (only)

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Cause of problem is not likely the neutral safety switch aka shift position sensor. Usually it's sticking or failing solenoids inside the valve body (silver gray box found on the driver side)...
  8. Looking for Torque Bracket Assembly P/N 4F1Z 6P086AA

  9. Looking for Torque Bracket Assembly P/N 4F1Z 6P086AA

    Maintenance and Repair
    Consider purchasing the more common strut mount which appears to use the exact same bushing. Press the rubber bushing out and install in your bracket. https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/ford,2004,taurus,3.0l+v6+dohc,1425057,engine,torque+strut+mount,5556

  11. A/C Blowing Hot Air

    Maintenance and Repair
    Do you see a black box between battery & fender? There is a relay inside that goes bad. https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=944041&jsn=3 Also, take a look at his video, different engine than yours, but was the cause of his AC not working.
  12. Oil Pan Gasket replacement TIPS Please?

    Maintenance and Repair
    If you read his post, he is installing an oil pan gasket, not an intake as you appear to have it confused with which does require RTV for end seals. I suggest you reread his post on what he is installing and reread figure 4 on the Fel Pro link for intake gaskets...

  14. Can't find matching battery cables

    Maintenance and Repair
    Why not just order the correct cable from Rock Auto? I believe they ship to Canada. https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=39149&cc=1139037&jsn=8
  15. Motorcraft VC-9 for a coolant flush? Good or bad idea?

    Maintenance and Repair
    Evapo-Rust Rust Remover (32 oz.) is what I use. I was going to purchase VC-9 but decided against it after reading the warnings about cancer, etc. Evapo-Rust is totally safe...
  16. '98 high idle issue

    Maintenance and Repair
    For most people, it would take just a few minutes to replace the connector. However, I am fussy about the work I do and chose to rebuild the wiring harness that the IAC, TPS & Air Intake Sensor connectors lead to. After I rebuilt the harness, I then installed new IAC, TPS & Air Intake...
  17. '98 high idle issue

    Maintenance and Repair
    Consider replacing the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) Connector. Doing so on my '97 corrected the "high idle" and "runaway" situations and really improved mpg. STANDARD MOTOR PRODUCTS S867 {#1U2Z14S411AFA, WPT170} or WVE/AIRTEX/WELLS 1P1399 $8.74 at Rock Auto https://www.rockauto.com/...

  20. Carpet replacement?

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    I am replacing carpet on my '97 in the very near future. Not going to be difficult or costly. Here are the details I think would be involved: 1) remove the front seats (4 bolts each) and disconnect seat belt wire before lifting out of car. 2) pop up the rear seat (press in and lift up) 3)...
