Re: 2011 Taurus SEL extremely low coolant

Welcome! If there is noticeable coolant in your oil already, the damage is done. Coolant destroys bearings internal to the engine which is permanent damage. It can only be fixed by an engine rebuild (or replacement which is more likely). I would either sell it as-is and buy a Toyota or fix it and re...

Re: Water pump is toast at only 60K miles (2015)

So did it leak internally too, destroying the engine from the inside? Worth asking, it's such a horrible thing that happens to unsuspecting owners.

Re: White eroded plugs, stuck plug, and part question

You don't want to use penetrating fluid, that's the wrong thing. You're not trying to remove a rusted bolt, you're trying to dissolve carbon deposits (most likely). If the carb cleaner doesn't work it wouldn't hurt to try. Just don't put too much liquid down there as it will seep past and go into th...

Re: Real help with my transmission fluid

Look in your owners manual/scheduled maintenance guide. Dealers suggest all kinds of things because their primary job is to extract as much money from you as possible when you visit.

Re: Change O2 sensors? 2010 Taurus 159K miles

Generally speaking if the car is running fine, no. You could use an advanced scan tool and graph the O2 sensor readings to ensure they are working OK. As long as you are doing regular maintenance on your car they should be fine.

Re: Should I

thank you for the reply , can the water pump be serviced ? Yes and no. You can proactively replace it but that will only buy you more time. The thing is that if the water pump fails, it leaks internally which may grenade the engine, meaning you need to replace the whole engine because the water pum...

I've been buying from them for years. They do carry some OEM brands like Motorcraft but watch a lot of them are ultra cheap crap parts. Spend wisely.

Then I guess you're on your own. Wheel shops around here charge about $125-150 to refinish a wheel FYI.

Re: Paint on 2015 SEL rims peeling

If it's still under the bumper to bumper warranty, talk to the dealer. I've seen people get rims replaced under warranty for similar circumstances. Worth asking.

Re: HOOD PADS, has anyone installed a hood insulation pad?

I don’t see why a regular Taurus hood liner wouldn’t work, you could also consider something like Dynamat, I’m sure they have a product for that application.

Re: Brakelight Bulb confusion

When comparing automotive bulbs like these it’s not lumens that matter, it’s watts. Two different bulb part numbers that both fit can have different draws, one can melt plastic lamp housings. I’d put in whatever part # bulb that the owners manual says to use.

Re: Water pump failure rate?

Some failed under warranty so oil changes and coolant flushes aren't the proven method to prevent this built-in problem. I believe the best thing you can do to lower your chances is do proper coolant flushes with the proper coolant, perhaps even earlier than Ford initially recommends. And keep a ver...

Re: 2012 Taurus- Water collects in door panels

My 02 & 03 F150’s were very similar, the drain holes are plugged by a weatherstrip and plastic. Rusted away and by the time you could see it, it was bad. Idiotic design. Planned obsolescence perhaps.

Re: 02 sable transaxle light

Welcome! You will need a more advanced scan tool that can read advanced codes. Perhaps an auto parts store like AutoZone will be able to read the codes for free. It could be about anything so there's not much you can do until you get the codes read and do some diagnosis.

Welcome! It should be the port where the hose goes back to the pump. Follow the lines.
