    Rear break porportioning valve leak

    Have you tightened all of the lines going to and leaving the PVS? Any Ford dealer can order one for you or, look in EBAY.com which just about Anything, for cheap.

    I wouldn’t worry about your cam synchronizer with only 25K miles, since they’re good for 75-80K miles when it’s smart to replace the rotor in the top part of it.

    Glad to help a fellow Taurus owner, mine is a 2004 SE and runs like a boss. Have you ever checked the OHMs of your spark plug wires? You might have one or more that are failing at 4500+ rpm. Those OEM coil packs can cause misfires too.

    Your belt might be slipping at high rpm causing your alternator to send insufficient voltage to your ignition system.

    Check your belt for wear and cracks.

    Sable Duratec Chime Sound from Engine

    Way to stick with it, Khemykal! Now you can enjoy your Sable like I do my ‘04 Taurus which is one of the very best Fords I have ever owned.

    Does your new belt have as many ribbs as the old one? I’m just guessing at the possible cause. Here’s another; Is your power steering pump reservoir full?

    Then the noise is from either the new clutch or the belt. Hopefully it is the belt which is easily replaced by whomever installed it. It could be one rib off and is rubbing against something. Do you smell rubber burning?

    Did it make that noise before the belt was changed?

    Issues with HIGH RPM

    Absolutely. My '04 takes a $50 PCV that is wired to the ECU, but it really made a big difference.

    Thanks for that info but a vac leak can cause high idle problems the same as in carbureted cars. Yes, his ICV might be gummed up.

    You have a vacuum leak on your intake manifold. There is a round valve on it close to the firewall which you can seal with silicone sealer as a temporary fix. The permanent repair is to replace the O-Ring that is in the valve which has failed.

    Bad idle

    That sounds like the same problem that I had with my '04 Taurus which was a heat destroyed O-Ring on it's intake manifold runner control (IMRC) valve. It's a bit of a pain in the back to get the valve out but it is doable. The O-Ring is nothing special and can be bought anywhere where O-Rings are sold.
  15. "I can't see addressing the transmission shift issues being of benefit now versus after it fails." I would have an honest (if u can find one!) trans guy take a look at it immediately. Your bull could leave you stranded for something as simple as a band adjustment and fluid/filter change!
