  1. the Sport threw a CEL at my father today, P1506. Cleaned and cleared it! We'll see what happens in the future now.....

  2. Well I'm happy to say (with Brian's help) I have another bull, a project log thread will be up later today about the "new" car.

  3. I got the new wheel and HOLY s**t its in better condition than mine are! Even the center cap that came with the new wheel is nicer than mine!

  4. Anyone know if vulcan plugs would fit a Duratec?

      They will screw in the holes. But the gap is all wrong and bending the outer electrode is BAD.

      I wouldn't do it. From my experience, DOHC Spark plugs are longer, and OHV are shorter, so it may run like s**t.

  5. Looked at more bulls over the weekend.

  6. 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

      That's what I'm thinking

  8. 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)

    1. ShelbyRacer78

      ShelbyRacer78

      not all of them Ben

      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.

      Roach and his crazy ideas!

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

    1. mh488

      mh488

      Same to you! I need all four struts myself, and a trans rebuild, and coolant leak fixed, and oilpan gasket, valve cover gasket and on and on. Lol

  17. I think I'm gonna go to a junkyard.

  18. I think I'm gonna go to a junkyard tomorrow.

      What subject was the ill-fated class #5?

  20. Finished my first semester of college today!!

  21. 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.

    4. mh488

      mh488

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