    2003 part out

    It's been four years and I have yet to replace the transaxle in my 2003 spruce green metallic clearcoat SES. I don't have current pictures. The vehicle is located at a friend's house. It has been started every couple of weeks to keep the engine up. The AXOD trans is shot. The fluid pump explode inside. The Vulcan engine is probably still good. It's a 2003 with 135,000 miles. I'll be headed over to the car in a few weeks to take some pictures. There was very little body rust when I last saw it. I have service records on request. It has sat outside for over four years. Before the trans failed, I had replaced the ball joints, tie rods brakes, front wheel bearings, parking brake cable and tires. The struts/springs were also less then a year old too. It's an SES, however I added the following. Keypad Autolamps footwell lights Continental shifter ignition lock shroud deleted updated coolant cap "security" flasher enabled on sunload sensor added extra light fixtures to trunk, and a cut off switch for loading replaced coolant bottle with one from a 2004. replace stabilizer bar bushings. Used clamp from a Gen 3. Extra parts that didn't get to be installed. Gen 4.5 tails for amber turn mod + associated wires Woodgrain radio trim Gen 4 Wagon Liftgate release Extra headlamp switches More parts to be added as I find them.

  4. What year and engine? I'll get some diagrams. My hard method involves checking connections from the Fuse, back. Sent from Tapa talk. Because SEO.

    Parking Brake Poll

    Parking brake auto release in drive, but not reverse. Odd isn't it? You typically reverse out of a parking spot.

    Parking Brake Poll

    Gen 4.5 don't either, nor does my wife's, '08 mariner. The '04 towncar has an auto canceling parking brake. Sables used to have a auto canceling parking brake I believe. That may have been during the 1st Bush administration though. Last winter my sister - in-law' s boyfriend jumped in my wife's mariner and shifted from D to R to get it free of a snow bank. Because: plows. The P brake was on with a red light glowing in the center of the cluster. People that don't use it can't be bothered to check it when they set off in another vehicle.

    After installing defog wing mirror glass in the Taurus and the Legacy, I won't have a daily driver without them.

    What. The. Strut.

    Pulling the subframe bolt isn't tricky. It's a bit of a scary concept if your haven't done it before.

    Charts Tips

    Hey chart! I have been looking for a good way to get the stuck rotors off the 07 forenza. What do you all think of this method? It involves the caliper bracket holes and common bolt Hardware. It presses the rotor off. Has an anyone tried this? These rotors lack any service hole. Where you thread a bolt onto the disc and it pushes off the wheel hub.

    Parking Brake Poll

    I use mine whenever I Park. My wife does the same. I miss my g4.0 that beeped in P or N and P! Brake == True.

  13. The theft light is a red herring, much like communism. Your encoded key reader (PATS transceiver) is only at fault If it flashes rapidly. Like 3x a second. Your once per 2 second is nothing more than a theft deterrent. Please provide more info on vehicle. Age of car and age of battery. Does it crank at all?
  14. If you really don't care about making more keys your self, you now can go to most hardware stores and Walmart. They will clone your key to a new one. The PCM sees it as the same key. So you can't use it as a 2nd unique key for programming. Cost varies.
  15. There have been PCM tuning shops that claim to have the ability to disable PATS. I don't know if that is a fact or not. I would imagine having an engine that starts and runs might be required.
