      That's how it works.

  2. Okay new issue on the Sable, at low corners I hear a like a grinding sound BUT only at low cornering speeds. Any ideas?

      what about 35 and below?

    3. mh488

      mh488

      Mine would drone at above 35, if I turned a little I could get it to drone less. I had one wheel bearing replaced and the car still droned. You guessed it both were bad. I tend to corner too fast and that is ******* the bearings.

      One thing is for sure if they are droning I would suggest putting money aside as it will get worse over time.

  3. I need to stop maxing out the Sable.

      My Thunderbird would destroy all Sables :P

      Especially with the interior being gutted, all that weight reduction right now... :P

    3. Brian_05_SEL

      It's sure riding tall on the springs with that weight removed. Probably down to 3900 pounds instead of 4200, lol.

      Vulcan vs Vulcan bring it on!

  4. Well the 03 Sable was a bust, poor thing has a burnt valve.

      Seems kinda stupid on their part. It's not like it's a $500 beater. As nice as it is, and with a guaranteed sale (to you), it certainly seems worth fixing. Hell, offer them $1,000 for the car and have it fixed yourself!

      John I just want turn key and go, we would have done that but the time it would take isn't worth it

      Kevin, Ford just started making diesel engines 3 years ago. Those are all Navistar engines, with 2 million engines produced I'd say it was the King of the Hill during its time.

      Personally I think new diesels stink more, when that urea is injected into the exhaust it has a very distinct unpleasant odor.

    4. TaurusKev

      TaurusKev

      Diesel in general is unpleasant. In any vehicle, any time I see a Ford Super Duty or school bus, I switch to Max A/C to recirculate the air, otherwise I cannot breathe. Every now and then there's a beat up Isuzu Box Truck that smokes up the whole highway. Yet I can be stuck in traffic with cars running normal, I have no issue with quality of air.

  6. Why is it so hard to find a Taurus/Sable with a Tec and a floor-shifter? Almost everyone I see that has a Tec but hang on! its a column shifter!! I find a floor-shifter, Hold-up! its a Vulcan (Not that I dislike the Vulcan or anything remember I had one)

      That's weird... usually tec + floor shift is standard. You can convert.

      OK I have '03 Sable with console shift and TEC. Hard for pas to fasten seat belt. My '01 Sable TEC and column shift. I like it better. More room.

      If I didn't use every inch of my trunk space on a semi regular basis I would probably put my battery back there.

      But its not a Sport. it's a Sable LS Premium...

      I can put a RT badge on my Taurus, doesn't make it the "RT" edition...

    3. breeves002

      breeves002

      Just like I saw an Aveo with a MAGNUM V8 badge but it doesn't have a MAGNUM V8.

    4. breeves002

      they might not make 899s but yellow fogs always look great, and actually function.

      893s are the same bulb and voltage

      Those are "speed holes". The Lotus mantra- simplify and add lightness.

      The only issue with Flowmaster 40's is the insane amount of interior drone.

    3. JohnTaurus

      JohnTaurus

      I hadn't thought of that, any other suggestions? I want a Flowmaster, but would another version be more suited to this application?

    4. Angrod

      Angrod

      The Flowmaster Delta 40 is supposed to be quieter and the 50 series is quieter as well.
