Re: Cell Phone Placement

In 4 years I've never had to take my Cell Phone out of my pocket. Once paired with Bluetooth I just hit the button on the wheel and talk. No need to see it:)

Re: 2013 SEL door handle recall

Anyone get the recalled handle yet? Driver side door opened a couple of times this weekend while driving. Didn't realize inside handle didn't return and latch after opening. Ford really should have had parts available before ordering a recall. Now this is getting dangerous. Thanks Texas122 I know m...

No, the system was designed to support MP-3 audio only files. The information you need to set that system up can be found in your owners manual.

Re: 2011 SEL: location of speakers

That sounds like the Sony system. Should be two tweeters L and R in the "A" pillars. 1 5x7/6x8" speakers in each front door and the same in each rear door and two 6x9" in the rear deck. I don't think that year came with the front center channel, I believe that came later. Here is a YouTube video of ...

Re: 2016 Ford Taurus Preview

How about a Gen-7 Taurus for the US? Looks like a borrowed chassis, less weight and pretty much nothing like the China version. Interesting speculation at the very least.

Re: Ford Taurus flakes in oil

Metal in the oil is not a good thing. You can cut the filter top off with a hacksaw but I don't think you will find much except more metal. If you spun a rod bearing you would be hearing a higher pitched knocking in the engine. If you spun a main bearing the sound would be a lower pitched knock deep...

Re: varying interior ambient lighting colors

I've noticed recently my interior ambient lighting is not all the same. For example, it will be set to orange everywhere, but the drivers door only will be green. Then when I think I have them all set the same the passenger door will be the only one a different color. There seems to be no pattern. ...

Re: Help a new guy out! :)

If you look through the Gen 4 forum you can get a pretty good idea what you might run into problem wise. No way would I purchase a 13 year old car without taking to a good reputable tech and paying the $150.00 to $200.00 they typically charge for a pre-purchase inspection. I can't stress that enough...

Wow, is it possible they could have made that more complex? After digging around on their parts pages it looks like the key to your problem is in the red print you cut off. All the parts in diagram 14 and 16 (16 might come as a separate assembly too) come as a package for a little over $160.00 bucks...

Re: brake light occasionally flashing on my 2000 Sable

Well, I've already read this and pretty much understand it, but no mention is made there as to determining whether or not the shoes, rotors or both need replaced. I assume I can just compare a new shoe to the existing ones and if the rotors have no in-ground markings from metal on metal or not too ...

Re: 2014 Taurus Highway Vibration

The reality is you can balance a square tire but it's going to give you vibration. The diagnostic on this issues is beyond simple. Have the dealer grab another Taurus off the lot and move the tires and wheels to your car and go for a drive. If the vibration goes away it's a tire problem. The tires h...
