#2945 of 2996 Trip Center on a 2004 Ford Taurus SES
Sep 12, 2010 (7:36 pm)
The 3 button Trip Center on my Taurus has stopped doing anything except doing systems check and showing how many miles to empty plus total miles on the odometer.
Is this a module problem or ?????
If it needs to be replaced does the 3 button assembly pop out? pry out? or ?
Is there a module somewhere else that needs to be checked?
I really enjoyed this added feature and would like to get it working right or replace it to continue using it.

#2948 of 2996 1995 ford Taurus mysterious engine stall
Oct 21, 2010 (12:31 pm)
Have a very strange situation with my Taurus. Recently, the engine started to stall when I engage either power lock or automatic windows. When engine stalls the illuminating lights inside go on with the doors closed???? When I turn the ignition switch off and open the door some strange buzzing noise comes from the driver side door. While this buzzing is going, if I try to start the engine starter spins but engine doesn’t start. Then after closing and re-opening the door and randomly pushing buttons that buzzing noise stops and I am able to start the car again without problems. Tried to disconnect the central lock and power windows by pulling the fuses, but was unsuccessful – was either pulling the wrong fuses or it didn’t have an effect (diagram stated to pull fuses 6 and/or 8).
Your help in resolving the issue is appreciated.
#2949 of 2996 2003 Mercury Sable RPM issues
Oct 31, 2010 (8:07 pm)
My RPM's drop when slowing or in stop and go traffic. The car has turned off on me several times and I have no problem restarting. When driving on the hwy I have no issues until I have to slow. I just recently changed the PCV valve, the plugs, the wires, the air filter, and have used the intake cleaner. My gas pedal seems like it is harder to push while driving. Does anyone know what type of issues that I am facing and can you help me out here?
#2950 of 2996 2000 ford taurus no heat
Dec 02, 2010 (7:41 pm)
Hi,i worked on a friends 2000 ford taurus today to try and fix an issue with no heat.The water pump is new,i put a new thermostat in but still no heat.The engine operates with normal range,i know the blend door is operating but still no heat.I did notice the inlet to the heater core is hot but outlet is cold.I have read on here that this is quite common.So i guess a backflush on the heater core is next on my list.Any suggestions on the easiest way to do this?Just trying to help a friend out,any input would be helpful.Thanks

Had the same problem normal back flush wouldn't work, this is what I did, aqquied some long matching hose enough to hang over the side of the vehicle connect both lengths to the core direct, bit of a struggle then I used a pressure washer first one way then the other once the muck starts to move just keep at it till it comes out freely in either direction, my heater now is unbelievelably hot not, not enough presure from a garden hose to do it.

camshaft synchronizer ford taurus
I was wondering why a dealership or other repair shops are asking $300.00 + to replace a camshaft synchronizer for a ford taurus , it looks fairly easy to get to and only 2 screws , other than setting the timing after installing it , the part is only a $60.00 part

Had the same problem with my 98 Taurus... After thermostat was replaced it continued blowing nothing but cold air. Had a mechanic come to the house and he totally flushed out the heater core. It's worked great ever since. Good Luck!
