    Gen 3 Taurus Radio trim plate for EATC - Oakland, CA

    Wow. This is a pain in the ass. What am I doing wrong? My office UPS and FedEx wont deliver to a PO box, and USPS wants like $30.00 to deliver a 9x9x12 seven pound box from 60148 to 94603, and that's clearly rape.
  3. Last week
  4. I removed the fake rear valance and tips on the Charger and installed the Charger Pursuit rear valance and got some nice 4" polished stainless tips for it. The tips are just sat in place for the picture. I'll have them welded on tomorrow. Also, a while back I had a Mopar vinyl decal added to the rear quarter. One of these days I'll upgrade the wheels. The car has been great. I'll have had it one year on March 8 and I've put 6500 miles on it so far. Jeff
  5. Brian I love the saddle color interior. It really sets it off beautifully!

    I will find out tomorrow at work.
  7. What would you estimate shipping to 94603? It would be a PO Box in Oakland, CA.

    Gen 3 Taurus Radio trim plate for EATC - Oakland, CA

    Well. My misfortune is your good fortune. Seems the seal on my storage container did not work so well. My footballs got wet. Choose either or both, all you gotta do is pay for shipping. They may still work but I'll give them to you free.
  9. Earlier
  10. I'm seeking the aftermarket football to add an aftermarket head unit. I don't need any of the electrical/electronics. I hadn't thought of modifying one. I guess I could acquire one of the EATC footballs as well as one of the aftermarket ones for the 3 dial units, and make the same cut on both. I'd just use the top half of the aftermarket one. I'll have to talk to my radio guy to see what he thinks.

    The first pic matches the SHO exactly. I'm not home right now, I'm in New York on business. I can take a peek this weekend if I get a chance. Are you looking for a complete working 98 style unit? (96-97 have one style of plug ins, 98-99 have a different style)or are you just looking for a body to modify? I know I have bodies, I am not sure if I still have a 98 style EATC Football.
  12. Any luck? Again, I'm looking for one to use an aftermarket head unit with.
  13. My tape deck is dead on my 99 Taurus and prices for replacement head units are absurd. I know that the actual radio itself is in the back of the car but I really don't care about radio as I can get all the music I need via my phone. How could I install a radio just for aux and connect it to the stock speakers.
  14. A code suggested that the MAF needed to be replaced.
  15. Hello, I have an 89' sho. I got it in 1990 with about 10000 miles on it. It has about 150K now. I work out of my home and am sort of local in my driving. I drive the car daily at least a little and drive easy. I'm 68 years old.I have 2 problems that may have been there for awhile, but have gotten worse. Problem 1 is a weak start. I turn the key and it starts weak and stutters a little in the low RPM range and then recovers to the normal tack (8900) setpoint. If I try to go before the car warms up, it will die and require that I push the accelerator to floor to start it, but it does start. When the car has warmed up, it runs OK. Problem 2 is that while it runs OK, there has been a major loss in power. The top speed is maybe 80MPH down hill with a tail wind. When I go up a hill in 4th, I can lose 10 MPH. The gas mileage is also real bad. MAF, plugs and wires, and O2 sensors are new. Any help will be appreciated. The car is in good shape in and out. I do a little restoring about every 5 years and this is a 5th year. I'm hoping to get another 50K out of this car. Please help.Thanks,craig tussey Any help will be appreciated.

  16. Great Step by step tutorial! I found that a FL-820S Motorcraft gasket worked perfectly once grinned down a tad.
  17. I've heard them called the football before. It's just the faceplate that the EATC connects to and covers it and the factory stereo. Like this piece (2nd pic) but made for the electronic climate controls, not the three dials. Is the SHO version the same (98 non-SHO for comparison in 1st pic)?
  18. hey i need the airbag cover for the passenger side of the 1999 ses ford taurus silver. i dont care the color but my cover is not ok at all. it exploded years ago and the cops just arent having it anymore. in calgary alberta. Thank you oh so kindly for reading. I have nearly made a new taurus minus doing the....timing chain..the head gaskets....but they are doing well at 220,00 k .

    Rear break porportioning valve leak

    Have you tightened all of the lines going to and leaving the PVS? Any Ford dealer can order one for you or, look in EBAY.com which just about Anything, for cheap.
  20. Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh, I wanna go for a ride!!!!!!
  21. Added heated seats with new Katzkin leather.

    misses at high rpm, no codes shown

    Knew a car that had it failing at 49k...so yes you should worry about it book...ford factory manual from eBay!
  23. So.... my starter died on me two Thursdays ago. Had to resort to the good old "pop the clutch" method to get it rolling. I wasn't about to be crawling underneath in the cold so I let a local Ford dealer do it. Of course it happens AFTER the comprehensive warranty runs out, and the powertrain warranty doesn't cover the starter. Oh well. Picked it up this past Tuesday. $345 and some change, which was actually lower than what I was originally quoted. Car starts better than it ever has.

  25. Lol...Age has certainly taken a toll on ME! Can you guys recommend a good book on Taurus troubleshooting / repair?
  26. Age takes a toll same as miles. Sometimes age is worse. -chart-

    I wouldn’t worry about your cam synchronizer with only 25K miles, since they’re good for 75-80K miles when it’s smart to replace the rotor in the top part of it.
  28. Thanks! I will check it out.
