  3. got all the lifters replaced...ordered myself a diablosport tuner to disable active fuel management

    Transmission temperature PIDS

    Wolf, you are so right. But the damage has been done. Did I mention that the current transmission is a rebuild just about 6 months past its warranty? The guy that did it won't even return my calls to talk about it. I think he's scared. The car can't seem to hold a cruising speed either in OD or '2'. It shifts up too quickly and then falters in sub 2000 rpms. I have to pump the accelerator to make it drop down to a lower gear, until it gets up to cruising speed, and then feather it with the gas pedal. It reminds me of a car that is flooding with the wrong mixture. Or bad plugs or wires; both were replaced, as well as a fluid/filter drain and replace, and a new fuel filter. This was all done last month.

    Transmission temperature PIDS

    When was the fluid last changed on your transmission? Do you have an aftermarket plate cooler installed? Frequent fluid changes with Mercon V and an external plate cooler seems to help extend the life of these transmissions.

    Transmission temperature PIDS

    I was afraid of that. That's why I'm looking for the PIDS to verify it. My transmission is acting funny and I've already replaced it once. Could be heat related. Still looking to see if anyone might be more positive; either through experience, or a solid knowledge of the PIDS made available for my car.

    Transmission temperature PIDS

    I am pretty sure that the 1999 did not support trans temp as OBD-II in those days were primitive.
  8. 1999 Mercury Sable wagon, DOHC 24-valve engine. AX4N transmission. Using a Bluetooth OBDII adapter and an android app, I'm trying to determine if my transmission is over heating. But, I'm not sure if Ford built in an OBDII PID to the on board computer monitor the transmission temperature. Is there a list of PIDS for my 1999 sable? I have exhausted all my ideas on where to find such a thing or if there was even a Trans temp PID created for my model?

  10. I can not find wire diagram for brake circuit if there is any way you be able to get one that would help I'll be checking Boo switch this morning with the fluid sensor and I will let you know the resaults
  11. I added to my fleet last night. We needed a newer car to replace the 09 Fusion we had as it had 150k miles on it and was still mechanically sound, but everything else was falling apart. I went to Fletcher Dodge in Jonesboro, where I purchased my 18 Charger a year ago, just to look really and dream about upgrading the Fusion. I went inside and they had a single black 2018 Challenger sitting there with a big reduced sticker on it. So, needless to say I brought it home at a decent price(I thought) just a tad over $25k. Car had 88 miles on it and is equipped with the pentastar V6, optional 3.09 gear ratio rear end, paddle shifters, super sport package, premium cloth interior w/houndstooth inserts, heated mirrors, alpine sound system, 8.4 UConnect w/nav just to name a few. No moon roof, but that's fine by me. Sad to see the Fusion go because it was paid for, but happy to not have to worry about potential problems and it's quirks. So, I guess I'm just a Mopar guy now. Still love Ford, but never had much luck at my local dealer and, even though, I like Brian and enjoyed buying from him, I told myself I was never travelling that far again to buy a car! lol. Jeff
  12. I can't say I've seen a car that just plain out stalls regardless of gear selection (Park, Drive, etc...) with just mashing down the brake pedal enough. Outside of an electrical issue or mechanical issue, I'm a bit clueless. Only electrical stuff I could consider for the brake system though would be the brake light on/off (BOO) switch under the dash and usually the fluid level sensor on the master cylinder. If you wanted to rule those out, you could disconnect them both. Just take note, you may want to place the car in neutral before disconnecting the BOO since the shift interlock should be tied to that. If you disconnect that first, you won't be able to shift out of park. If it still stalls after all that, there may be an underlying mechanical issue that we're not seeing. FWIW, not every trouble issue will set a fault code, so while diagnostic codes are helpful, we can't always be reliant on them.
  13. Yes I did diconnect the brake booster vaccum and blocked vaccum hoses the car still stalls but with this brake booster test it stumble a little then dies, I have to step on brake harder before it dies but it just might be cause of no brake assist?!-I have been checking vaccum hoses and not found any air leaks, I checked ground wires and test most of them to be good, I switch relays to see if any change but nothing, so I don't know what to do from here,until I can get OBD code to come out
  14. Interesting to see that it stalls only when you really press on the brake pedal, and not when you lightly just tap it enough to get the shift interlock to work so you can move the shifter. That eliminates my thoughts about the brake light on/off switch, if it was somehow causing trouble. Have you tried disconnecting the booster yet and seeing if that's had an effect on if it stays running or not?
  15. I uploaded short video on YouTube under GdragonLucero, 2000 Ford Taurus stalling while in gear while Brake is applied if you would like to see that one
  16. I Really do appreciate the help your giving me, Thank You!!
  17. 57636114303__86386D1C-85BA-4ACD-B89F-F68D36537D00.MOV This is the best I can do.I hope it gives you some kind of info
  18. I will try to upload it to YouTube or other site and let you know- I have raised the wheels off the ground so I can look under for loose wiring and test o2 sensers, since I did that I ran car though all gears and wanted you to see what the car does. Hopefully I can get this video uploaded soon
  19. If you need to, upload the video to YouTube or another video hosting site.
  20. Maybe. Maybe not. I looked to see if the car was under GM warranty. Factory warranty actually ended a few weeks before the car was traded in.
  21. I can not seem to up load video for some reason this site is not letting me see if I can do it this evening I have to redo to 2MB
  22. Man. That SUCKS. Seller MUST have known this was coming. Anyhow, I totally appreciate your attitude. Breakage just means that it is upgrade time! Shame/Blessing that it had to happen so soon after purchase.
  23. Well car broke lmfao....llifter collapsed on cylinder 4 due to the stupid active fuel management system...since we gotta tear apart the motor I’m going to due a active fuel management delete kit with ls7 lifters and unsure of what cam to get...will probably just get a ls9 cam. pfa
  24. So I can't get that file to load on my stuff. I've not seen a *.vpj file for a video. If you're using a particular type of video editing software, I might recommend checking to see if it has an export feature to a normal video file, like *.avi, *.mp4, or something like that. As per fuses 37 and 38, I don't know what circuit those protect. Regarding the new booster, you may hear a little air escape, but it shouldn't be constant hissing.
  25. I’ll try and watch the video when I get home. I can’t get that video file to open on mobile.
