#2509 of 3012 Re: 2002 ford taurus water in trunk [nbpt100]
Nov 28, 2006 (11:31 am)
I had the same problem recently but finaly located the problem. Due to the shape of the trunk below below the rear window and acts as a cradle for water which will accumilate in the dip of the shape if the car is not park on a flat surface (facing up a slope) in my case water had gathered there and had entered the trunk by coming up under the seal over the metal frame. New seal has cured my problem.

1995 Mercury Sable GS, 3.0L. Bought 2 days ago from private owner. Both in town or highway the needle bounces constantly between 15 to 20 above and below, going with traffic flow. The tach works. What's up and how to fix?

Previous owner just emailed me the vehicle does have ABS, brake work, engine tuned.
So, lithium grease and sensor unit?
#2513 of 3012 Check engine light

I own a 1995 Ford Taurus, 190,000 miles. Recently I blew the head gasket. Had everything changed professionally, gaskets, water pump,etc etc. Now, every time I hit a big bump the 'check engine light' comes on for a few minutes, then goes out. Car runs fine. No problems except for light. What could be happening? The place that repaired my car does'nt have a clue.

The tube connections coming thru the fire wall are a weakness in this design. I bet you removed the heater hose when you flushed the cooling system. In the future, Dont touch these hoses unless you must. And then cut the hose off with a knife being very careful not to put too much stress on the heater tube. Also you don't need to change the coolant that often. Check the owners manual. Make sure you use distilled water and not tap water when mixing the coolant/antifreeze. Tap water has too many electrolytes causing an electrolosys situation, accelerating corrosion.
#2517 of 3012 2001 Taurus transmission "wobble"
Dec 09, 2006 (10:32 pm)
I have a wobble I believe is coming from the transmission at 40 mph to 65 mph. Feels like an unballanced wheel, but wobble stops placed in nuetral. Any suggestions?

Sounds like good advice on the hose connectors. I also changes the radiator cap to a low pressure model and it stopped the leaking problem without any adverse reactions to summer cooling.
