From the mid 90s and up there are tons of AWD cars available from a lot of automakers. Do a bit of net searching, you might be surprised :)

Re: Power Windows & Locks

Is it possible to instal Power Windows and Power Locks in my 1989 Ford Taurus L? And, more to the point, is it worth it? I'm sure it's possible, but I'm also sure it could possibly cost more than I paid for the car. Two good questions. Yes, it's possible. As a rule you will need a lock solenoid kit...

Re: Oil or fluid on my spark plugs

I have a 2001 Ford Taurus DOHC 24V. I just replaced all of my spark plugs because my car has been surging while driving, I was hoping it was due to the plugs. I found a fair amount of what looked like oil on my spark plugs numbers 1 and 2. With the surging and the oil, does this mean that I have a ...

What I have run into more times than I care to remember is badly rebuilt starters (thanks China and Mexico) and it's an ongoing problem ever since people stopped...

Re: Bad Blowout on Right Front Tire

With the new low profile tires in use today it's not hard to pinch a sidewall on a curb and cut down a tire, the sidewalls are thin for a reason. That said every company has some recalls now and again, so here is a list of current recalls on certain MICHELIN tires. http://www.arfc.org/tires/MICHELIN...

Re: 2013 Taurus rear speakers?

Unless you bought the optional Sony system those are indeed unused speaker holes and no, there are no wires for them in your harness. The holes are cut for 5x7 btw. Now, as far as subs there are endless choices of options. If you use the "search" feature at the top of the page and search "subwoofers...
