  1. Earlier
  2. Very sad and true. The community we used to have is long gone. Many moved on to different cars, or just abandoned forums. It was fun though.
  3. Even TCCA is dying off. I’ve been a member there since 2002 and pop in there from time to time. I belong to a couple Facebook groups and somethings just don’t ever change. SHO guys with their high maintenance cars and superiority complexes SLO guys complaining there’s nothing available for their cars. Tales as old as time. The camaraderie that used to exist between users seems to disappeared over the years.
  4. I know this is a long shot but I'm selling my '99 wagon with 66,000 miles on Ebay currently. https://www.ebay.com/itm/155215512711?hash=item242390c487%3Ag%3AfAgAAOSwcO5jUJ0e&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAAAoD7HOsM75Orch4wWF6mEvc1OJ9HQSozn0ZYre5pxLCJZp9JtcjrWBQCZZJ6VtiEqQ9s97f7D8PA3cEcbJSoObSSLldeQuowcgJz3DJSjk8iX05sSr01i6QsyP9AEtzwEtBr5qDRwFgt7VvQg1nqqEHB4GAXSBLZ4A528yMINGb01jGmRrSaWmoDy7xxBt4QK1nB%2BoWw7jj%2B8JR%2BreP4Wpio%3D|tkp%3ABk9SR-zI_f_-YA&LH_ItemCondition=3000|1000|2500
  5. I had been going down the misfire road at the suggestion of the dealer service advisor. However, with the OBDLink MX+ hardware and FORScan software I was able to find that the Transmission Control Indicator Light was faulted, and no misfires were recorded over several trips. So, I dropped the Taurus off at the dealer for some warranty work.

  7. I have some Mode 6 data that may help identify why I am getting no-code misfires. The short version is: CID $00 TID $21 CID $12 TID $41 CID $07 TID $53 Can someone let me know what components and tests these refer to? A complete list would be even better. The long version is: Thanks, Robert
  8. I think most Ford shop manuals prefer the wires to have roughly 4000 to 6000 ohms per foot.
  9. 2013 Ford Taurus Limited. The check park assist warning light comes on at start up. The rear park assist audible warning is inoperative. None of the rear parking sensors are making a "clicking" nose when the car is in reverse. The cross traffic alert is working and rear camera is working.
  10. Hi, What is the spark plug wire resistance for a 1999 Ford Taurus SE? Thanks, Robert
  11. Hello Everyone, I have a 2004 Ford Taurus SES with DOHC engine and would like to know if the Starter is: Located underneath the battery compartment? If not, where is it located? Can it be accessible fully from the top for replacement? At this point I just would like to reach to the power lines to examine if they are ok. I have seen a couple of clips and one accessed it from the bottom and one from the fender. Can you post any correct clip that does not involve unbolting from the frame? Thank you in advance.
  12. most common is the gas cap itself
  13. WITH CURRENT FINANCES! TSOC will only be available for one more month. After that, we can't pay for hosting and the service will cease to exist. 

    1. Brian_05_SEL


      It has been a good run, I suppose. 

    2. Brian_05_SEL


      How much $ is hosting for another 6-12 months? 

    3. TaurusKev


      Hosting for a month is roughly $6. So $36 to $72. Our domain is good until June 2023. That's just $12/year. 

  14. Large EVAP leak code. Any common failure areas to check?
  15. In the past few months I sold the 2002 Jeep Liberty to a private party buyer whose kid needed a first car, traded in the gray 2015 Mustang coupe for a 2016 Explorer Limited, and still have the red 2015 Mustang convertible I bought last summer.
  16. With the parking brake warning light in the far right hand side of the dash cluster and somewhat blocked by the gear shift handle, I sometimes (sometimes more than sometimes) forget to release the parking brake. I would like to modify the wiring so that the chime that sounds when the door is not shut also sounds when the parking brake is set. I am comfortable making minor to mid-range repairs and mods. The closest thing I could find on YouTube is how to do something like this on a Kubota tractor. Can someone point me in the right direction about how to do this on a 1999 Ford Taurus SE? Thank
  17. Kinda makes me think perhaps a relay is failing. The other thing I can think of, if you restart the car after opening/closing the door, sometimes wires go bad in the door jam harness. These are getting older.
  18. 2004 SEL, Vulcan. Start the car, none of the power windows work, restart the car and they all start working normally. This happened yesterday, and also about 5 months ago. Any ideas why?
  19. I agree, since the domain is valid for a bit longer, maybe redirecting it to the official Discord if donations don't pour in. That is awesome to know, I started setting up one for TSOC. If anyone wants to start joining, I created a link here, https://discord.gg/VaDtU2M2kY If you wanna help out, I'd appreciate any help. Sadly, without investing tons of money to try to get TSOC to outrank TCCA, which means more money, more donations, this place won't go too far. It's always been a nice little community though.
  20. Been working on everything over the last few weeks... Pulled the carpet out of the D-150 and patched up the floor. I've got a whole A/C system ready for install since none of the old R-12 equipment plays with the aftermarket replacement parts. Had the QuadraJet rebuilt by a co-worker. If I can get the interior buttoned up soon, it'll be time to get the mechanical bits fixed and see about getting a TorqueFlite working again. Marquis needed the front brakes replaced. Old pads wore unevenly despite no sticking slide pins or other caliper trouble. Cut the rotors and tossed in a
  21. So Discord ain't bad since you can offer real time information to people rather quickly. I presently help moderate CrownVic.Net's Discord server. It's definitely different than being on the forums, but I guess the issue here is presence. CVN has been around for over 20 years as a Panther forum and I know as despicable as TCCA is now after they got bought out, they still manage to catch more folks than we do. I dunno what presence they have on a more mobile platform, but there might be a good spot for folks needing some information for the platform right now if no one is filling that vo
  22. I would check fuses and also even pressure.
  23. Hi everyone. So, when I was made admin, I had more time on my hands, I could take care of the forum, fixed a lot of issues. But, like all things, life is always in my way. With that said, I apologize for downtime. Our host doesn't have auto bill, but it is because our forum has always run on donations and we pay with Paypal to them. With that said, in our account, we have $2.90 left. That will not pay for another month of hosting. I will pay for a few more months out of my pocket, but if we don't see donations, I am sad to say we will have to say goodbye to TSOC. I don
  24. Hello.. I have no power at my ac relay, or the low pressure switch. Any help....
