      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.

      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.

  2. I finally get 20+ MPG!!

    1. breeves002

      breeves002

      I get 30+ sometimes on the highway.

    2. TaurusKev

      TaurusKev

      I get 20+ often in my Taurus. My 05 was a bit better with the Vulcan, but barely. I thought my Essex would be a gas guzzler. I'm shocked actually. The true shocker is how great my V8 Thunderbird is on gas!

      Infinite MPG just sitting dismantled in your garage.

  3. I'm sold on switchback LEDs

  4. Allison still has a vac leak somewhere. Using the Torque app the vac pressure was between 21.6 and 21.5 at idle, tomorrow I'll be looking with FORscan. Any ideas for where it could be?

    1. breeves002

      breeves002

      Use carb cleaner to look. LIM/UIM gaskets or PCV elbow.

  5. Just took Allison out for a drive after a 4 day trip away from her.....OH HOW I HAVE MISSED HER AND THE DOHC POWA!!

  6. Anyone have ideas for a muffler tip?

    1. Thub

      Thub

      Stock Mustang GT tip, 3" stainless steel with a 45 degree cut.

      Redtail performance has a good selection for good prices. That is where I got mine.

  7. Anyone have ideas for a muffler tip?

  8. Allison might be getting a MagnaFlow muffler soon.....

    1. Angrod

      Angrod

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

    2. 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?

    3. Angrod

      Angrod

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

  9. Aux jack is in!

    1. JohnTaurus

      JohnTaurus

      After years of resisting, I finally got a smart phone. Guess I'll have to upgrade my car's audio system to include Bluetooth connectivity so I can play my music (using Sync in the '12 has really, really, REALLY grown on me!).

  10. Might do an aux jack mod soon.....

  11. Just ordered some Philips crystal vision ultra bulbs!

    1. njackson580

      njackson580

      LED or GTFO ;-)

    2. ShelbyRacer78

      ShelbyRacer78

      headlight bulbs. LEDs are coming.....

  12. Ford Nationals: Fantasic time, lots of fun putting on new parts, meeting new faces and being the only Sable sedan there!

  13. Day 1 of Ford Nationals: FANTASTIC

  14. Almost one week till Carlisle, I still need to prep Allison!!

    1. Angrod

      Angrod

      I need to prep my car too! I wonder if I should clean the engine?

    2. REDTRUCKCHASER

      REDTRUCKCHASER

      I washed and waxed thirdbull and then it rained hard.. grrr. Will have to clean again...damn weather

  15. Ordered a new sunload sensor. Working A/C here I come!!

    1. breeves002

      breeves002

      Your A/C should still work somewhat with a bad or no sunload sensor. It just won't very the blower speed based on sunlight.

    2. TaurusKev

      TaurusKev

      No, bad Sunload sensor would cause EATC to throw an error code and not boot up the A/C.

    3. breeves002

      breeves002

      No, the AC will still work if the sunload sensor is bad. Trust me. I owned a 2000 with EATC. Plus the sunload sensor didn't fix his problem.

  16. Ordered my MOTORCRAFT IAC and some Hella Optilux fog light bulbs today.

  17. Ultimate birthday weekend complete! Happiness level: 96%

    1. Angrod

      Angrod

      Only 96 percent?

    2. ShelbyRacer78

      ShelbyRacer78

      4%=college work

    3. Angrod

      Angrod

      Ah. I can see how that might detract a little.

  18. For my fog lights: 3000k HIDs, yes or no?

    1. ShelbyRacer78
    2. Thub

      Thub

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

    3. ShelbyRacer78

      ShelbyRacer78

      893s are the same bulb and voltage

  19. I need a tune......

    1. breeves002

      breeves002

      Doesn't do much for a gen 4. Not worth the money IMO. With drive by wire it is almost always worth it.

    2. TaurusKev

      TaurusKev

      You Can Tune a Piano, but you can't tuna fish

  20. FORscan is AMAZING

    1. breeves002

      breeves002

      FORScan is the best scan tool software for FoMoCo vehicles. It's free too and only requires a cheap ELM327 clone! I am the one who lead Mark in the right direction...

  21. What bulb would I need for my fog lights?

    1. ShelbyRacer78
    2. JohnTaurus

      JohnTaurus

      Part#: OE-899 for the regular OEM style. Hella makes a hella good bulb for them too, Mfg Part#: H83135061 for like $15/ea

  22. I love having parts "In Stock"

    1. JohnTaurus

      JohnTaurus

      Me too, I love finding something I need that I stashed away years ago. Doesn't cost anything if you've removed it from a car already heading to the crusher!

  23. Got my recall done on the Sport today!

    1. Bull Geek

      Bull Geek

      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...

    2. breeves002

      breeves002

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

    3. breeves002

      breeves002

      Or at least it didn't sound like it...

  24. Didn't start agian (jumped it with the F-150), AND the CEL came on AGAIN same code P1506. Any easy fixes for the code (other than buying a new IAC)?

    1. Brian_05_SEL

      Brian_05_SEL

      Stealing a new IAC.

    2. Shade

      Shade

    3. Angrod

      Angrod
