I wonder if anyone else has had this problem, or has a suggestion on how to
deal with it. I have a 97 Taurus with the 3.0 Vulcan. A year and a half ago
the coolant (which had been previously changed by the dealer) turned brown
and the dealer, under warranty, thoroughly flushed the cooling system,
replaced the 6 freeze plugs and the heater core. A couple of months ago the
car lost coolant because the freeze plug behind the transmission failed.
Since then, three other plugs failed including one that require the tranny
be pulled again. I heard that Ford had received a bad batch of antifreeze a
while back. Is there any TSB or extended warranty covering this particular
problem? :(

I replaced the plugs myself by prying out the old ones and replacing with new rubber ones from AutoZone. Trying to replace w/ metal ones is near impossible.
