Well, to update things here. This particular driver was also driving a focus hatchback and asked me if my Cruise Control was working. Thank you for your help!! But again, when the engine is revving up, it starts jerking, and the rpms flucuate about 500 rpms as the car jerks. I have to make the repairs myself and do not have a lot of funds to toss around in the process. Did the battery light stay on solid or flickering? The car's turn signals tend to shut themselves off to our frustration.
It has an uncanny ability to pretend it's a truck, e. Ford continued to say that since they are not fractured and no one has yet been hurt, they are not replacing them. I have not yet gotten it fixed. I would recommend the duratec since the 3. The shop says there is no problem with the sensors and solenoids, and there is something internally wrong. Problem could be poor quality of materials or design problems. Yet, nothing serious went wrong with my Maverick.
Now he told her to replace the plugs and wires, which she is going to do tomorrow. What else can be done to resolve it? Took car to dealership for repair. So I don't know if there are any tranny codes. The absence of trouble codes indicates that it is mechanically sticking while being electrically correct. The other day I drove to my driveway, slowed down, pulling into the driveway, gave it some gas and the rpm's went up but I could not get up my driveway because of this issue. He was taking the car to a trans shop to see if the trans has any codes and that's when it started to overheat supposedly.
It didn't seems to help. Sounds like he's ripping her off. . It handles smoothly on city streets and the open highway. Plastic hose coupler for engine coolant next to the battery was cracked and leaking.
I replaced the now bald tired and had it aligned. My wife and youngest child have mold allergies and every time we brought the car in, they would tell us that all they could do is blow that solution into the system because the systems in new cars are built too air tight nowadays. It was fixed on the extended warranty, which I recommend highly. However, she doesn't have the money to get a new car. And it feels extremely sluggish. To add to it, after driving about 2 miles, the battery light came on and stayed on. I did tell her to get a second opinion and see what another mechanic says.
When I got my car inspected in 2008 the inspector informed me that there were 4 broken springs on my car! And I believe that if there is some mechanical problem, it will happen all the time, and not intermittently. For example, when turning out onto the highway from a stopped position, car will accelerate properly at first but then rpm's will build and transmission will violently jerk after the increase in rpm's. When it acted up, the car would fall flat on its face. The car feels well-built, heavy and sturdy, but not unwieldy. Sucked the rust from the bottom of expansion tank with wet vac.
I haven't heard from her today, so I don't know if she changed the plugs or not. Although that defect applied to a model year 2000 Taurus, the problem occurs in other model years. Drive on and quit worrying about what others may tell you about what may go wrong with your Taurus. The mechanic told her it would probably be best to just get rid of the car and get a new one. I ask him what's going on and he says that the water pump's leaking which I saw to confirm , all the hoses are dry-rotted and need replacing, there's an electrical short somewhere in the car when you turn the car off, the door locks go crazy and start locking and unlocking until a door is opened , and the reason the car won't go over 20-25 mph could be caused by the transmission.
Blown head gasket s discovered in early November of 2009. Thanks everyone for the help and advice!! Last September I had the alternator and battery replaced. Its covered by the warranty. Observing how close the spring was to making contact with the tire I feel there could have been severe consequences should the spring cause sudden tire failure. Thanks all for the replies. Driving about 35 mph on highway interchange, heard loud bang and car pulled left and I gained control and stopped. As such it should be mandatory for Ford to issue a recall notice to all owners of Taurus automobiles.
While the engine is on, the power steering pump in most Taurus's will whine. Six months later, the neighborhood kid broke a bone. But then this problem developed, and we thought that maybe the cats became even more clogged the car had the P0420 code , causing this problem. But I had receive other recall for wiring problems. I had to drive with my emergency lights flashing to warn others that my car might die on me.
