2002 Mercury Sable LS Platinum Sport, 2019 Ford Taurus Limited
About a month ago my mom got a 2019 Taurus Limited fwd with 38k miles to replace our now gone 2006 ford five hundred that had 223k miles. We also had to use our only other vehicle a 2002 sable until we got a new car which also like the five hundred has well over 200k. luckily we're still under powertrain warranty and we also purchased a extended bumper to bumper warranty until 81k. I should have known better to check the weep hole behind the alternator before we bought it but I made the assumption that it only had 38k miles and it shouldn't be a problem yet. I checked behind the alternator recently while I was looking around under the hood and saw oil leaking from the weep hole but not coolant the car is also not loosing coolant and the oil looks perfect. We're going to take it to the dealer as soon as we can before the water pump becomes a major problem. Just wondering if any of you out there have seen a 3.5l with water pump issues this early. I'll keep you guys posted.
