My wife had a 1995 Taurus and at 130K it started going through water pumps like crazy, that among tons of other issues with the cooling system in general. We just figured it was a "lemon" and got rid of it. Now I just bought a 1995 Taurus (same color and everything) with 183K from the auction 2 weeks ago and what do you know, today the cooling system went bye bye. Antifreeze everywhere. Same problems. I only paid $450. for the car so I don't plan on fixing it as this problem, with this many miles, will probably reoccur and nickle and dime me to death like the other one did. I'm just wondering if this is a common problem with the Taurus of this year?????? Just seems strange of it being an identical problem. I checked the VIN# to be sure I didn't actually have the exact same car, but it's not. So anyone know what's up with this?
