Re: 2016 Ford Taurus SE FWD - driver side rear view mirror replacement

definitely a DIY. SUPER easy! you'll need to make sure you get the right part though - it'll be based on your option level. 1) all should be electric, but who knows 2) puddle lamp 3) blind spot monitoring 4) ? Depending on your combination of the above options, that will inform which part you need t...

Re: HELP 2013 PI FlexPipe Leak

confused.......what type of help are we looking for? 1) if too expensive as quoted, grab one from a low mile junker for $25 and replace yourself. they're just post/flange so a new set of gaskets (or make your own) and you're good to go. 2) if your question is why can't your local muffler shop get on...

Re: Cabin Air Filters in 2013...

yea, I've had a couple vehicles that were accessed through the hood by pulling back weatherstripping. Seems like newer vehicles have you going in through the glove box. Clearly, they're just engineering cars to be a pain in the a$# so that more people will take them in for service. Plus side for dea...

.....take this with a grain of salt as I've not changed one in my PI yet (which means I'm well overdue).

Should be the same as a civi model, right?

Re: Back up camera intermittently turns off 2011 Taurus

countless threads on your issue.......more than makes sense to recap here. there was a bad group of cameras/apims/both back then. just google search for 2010 taurus camera not working or intermittent and youll see them. iirc the answer is to get a new camera, but youd be nuts to spend dealership $ t...

Re: 2013 PI Sedan civilian mod Vs. Cop mode

Can't speak for anyone else, but mine was not changed prior to sale. I can predictably engage pursuit (heavy breaking and rapid acceleration) in my *ahem* aggressive evening commute. It's a bit annoying really as the revs hang and shift points are pretty significantly changed. I'd be interested to g...

Let's make sure we're talking about the same thing here..... If you're talking about removing all the service 'upfit' accessories like lights and sirens, virtually every single car leaving service duty will have had these items removed. This is what you're hearing referenced when talking about the c...

Re: 2013 Taurus interceptor radio upgrade

sugar,

thanks for that! I've thought about it a handful of times since GPS would be great.

To clarify, you've got to have your phone/phone signal to hotspot for the gps to work??? Given the options (limited) would you do it again?

Re: radio

Since you've had no other responses: The general history on this issue is: if you do not have a SYNC equipped car, you're screwed. Neither a 4" nor 8" radio would do you any good - you would also have to have the Sync module and computer programming to make it all work. No option is plug and play (a...

Re: possible to add crosstraffic/blindspot monitor?

I can't speak to the Forscan activation, but the crosstraffic system runs off a series of sensors. You would have to get the traffic monitoring side mirrors (l/r) and the sensors inside the rear bumper (iirc?). Some idiot took out my drivers side mirror while street parked......the whole system then...

Re: center console ?, also, service manual needed

I did take the panel under wheel off, but cant remember if that was for my new footwell lighting or for that panel. There is a capture spring on the inside, can't make out what the lower fastener is. A hefty yank toward the back seats may be all you need.

That makes no sense.......are you still on your oe tires? At 9 years old, you've got bigger maintenance issues than door tag tire pressure. Replacement tires may have grossly different compositions/psi than oe. Generally, set tire pressure at 90% of max tire pressure ON THE SIDEWALL to maximize both...

I have never looked at a door jamb for tire pressure in my life. Does your tire not have the cold inflation psi on the sidewall?

Re: center console ?, also, service manual needed

iirc that plate comes out. youll bolt your console to the dash and then use the rear mounting holes on the trans tunnel for rear bolts. MAKE SURE you get both the carpet filler panels below both sides of the console AND both sides of the trim pieces that run from top of console up to dash and have h...

Re: Should I

reliable? eh, mostly. The one giant issue is the internal water pump - if it goes out your entire engine is toast.

What are your worries with the drivetrain? Since you've got AWD I wouldn't worry at all, it's rock solid in my experience and great in all weather.

Re: No rear dash speakers

your head unit is the first giveaway.......well maybe the absence of any speakers rear of the door could have been too.

i wouldnt worry about the bags, lots and lots of us have replaced rear door speakers and the interceptor crowd usually has to open theirs up to get the rear doors/windows working

Re: No rear dash speakers

there's an acm separate from the radio - it's behind the dash. not really an amp - more a module like an ecm etc. the factory sony amp (where equipped) is mounted vertically on the driver side trunk wall. Just do a google image search and you'll see it.
