  1. Michelle and Adam more of the V6 SHO crowd type. Glad she came home.
  2. Good Riddance 2020 Best hopes for all in 2021 !
  3. While it is apart, have them throw in a TransGo shift kit too.
  4. Right in your neck of the woods - I got 6 cars plated and insured right now or this would be the base car for my old SHOMAD idea. I got NO room. https://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/cto/d/arlington-heights-97-ford-taurus-wagon/7181865516.html Body super clean if it is a Chicago local car.
  5. Old school test for charging system. Disconnect battery when car is running. Does it die? Alternator related Stays running? Battery related Have you done a thorough cleaning of the battery cables and terminals? You may just have oxidized connections preventing proper chargeback.
  6. Don't blow your hands off!
  7. The horn warning sounds like alarm related, like a hood plunger not going down all the way. That was a problem with the Gen 3 SHO's (96-99) so maybe your car has a similar switch? Battery drain - Does the dome lamp interior light stay on after closing the doors? Other than that, the GEM module - once again in the SHO model - has caused a bunch of really weird phenomenon in my experiences. It is on the back of the interior fuse panel in the SHO's. Your mileage may vary.
  8. Chicago area. Just posted today. Somebody jump on this. 42k needs some skilled hands but for only $750.00 ? ! ! ! https://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/pts/d/gurnee-1998-ford-taurus-wagon-42k/7122240084.html 1998 Taurus wagon 42k original miles. Clean interior. New heater core and radio. Needs a fuel pump, 2 ball joints and an oil pan gasket. I have the parts. Parts or whole. Call with needs. Might trade
  9. in my experiences with the Gen 3 SHO's. I find when this happens, I go to one of my parts cars and take the whole headlight switch assembly out, change it over, and the problem goes away. Probably junkyard visit time for a headlight switch.
  10. Where is @Chart? Totally in his wheelhouse
  11. Oh, a couple of us still have a couple of 'em. But you're right - it is a dwindling crowd.
  12. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1996-1999-Ford-Taurus-Clear-Front-Side-Marker-Lights-PAIR/322115565914?fits=Year%3A1997|Model%3ATaurus|Make%3AFord&hash=item4aff95795a:g:FCYAAOSwGeBXP2f8:sc:USPSFirstClass!60148!US!-1
  13. A little light part removal before sending shell to the graveyard.
  14. Red light is either parking brake not fully released or low brake fluid. I know on the V8 SHO's the low fluid sensor is a lying piece of junk. Do a visual on the fluid level and look for puddles under the car before driving off in it after the red light activates, please.
  15. tripped over this. Maybe? https://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/cto/d/palatine-97-mercury-sable-wagon-117/6977781640.html
  16. Car is having pains of guilt for never paying me for the rear springs?
  17. Not easily. It is supposed to come out the bottom. Drop 4 subframe bolts and the whole pill comes out more or less after disconnecting steering, hoses, and wires. And flex pipe. Not meant to come out the top. I know of a couple people who did it more or less just to prove you COULD, but it is actually much, much more work.
  18. 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.
  19. Thanks. I think I see a major problem. I wasn't using 'their' box. I clicked on Ground, or something like that, thought I was picking the most economical but don't actually recall seeing the words similar to Parcel Select. Been out of town a lot lately, not easy to run in to the Post Office.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. Are you just looking for a radio /climate control 'football'? I probably have one of those around. It would be EATC style from a SHO.
