anyone here use AC Delco plug wires, rockauto has em on sale for the taurus/sable

AC Delco stuff always worked pretty good on my Cutlass, but then that car wasn't nearly as picky as our bulls are. AC Delco is a good name, but if you can afford it, OEM is the way to go.

I say give it a shot, then. Hopefully they last you. I have aftermarkets on mine, put them in last Feb, and so far not any trouble. I forget what brand they were, though. But I will say this: If you ever find that you need a coil pack, then don't skimp, get Motorcraft.

You know that last screwup wasn't my fault! Consider the job done. But how does one tell the difference between a silver Sable and a silver Taurus? ph34r.gif Back on topic, I agree with Rusty, that coilpack should be a Motorcraft part to avoid future hassles.

The coilpack will always be a motorcraft part, i am probably not going to do that part til 200k mi.

If you can't figure that out on your own, then maybe I need to hire somebody else.

Steve, that's a good idea, especially if it's still original.

Yup, plugs/wires are cheap enough to do before then.

I have a theory as to why i have a new alternator and starter on the car.

Prior owner did not know the a/c compressor was going bad, but was having starting issues and possibly burnt out the starter due to the compressor having too much of a drag on the engine.

Later at pepboys, they install a new alternator and starter, it runs fine, but has random startup issues, which i later experienced. Owner donates it when told they could not fix it, purple heart sells it to an auto auction, when i buy it from a less than reputable dealership, and start to have similar issues, hard to start, slow turnover, etc. I replace the fuel filter which is clogged, the belt snaps later that weekend, indicating the crappy a/c compressor, put a new belt on to bypass it, causing the pepboys cracked power steering pulley to explode.

Is there a certain logic to my thought process there?

Yeah pretty much :lol:

My Pontiac died due to trans failure: We went airborne at 45mph or so and landed on a 2ft wide tree stump. When all was said and done, the radiator was inside the transmission. Insurance totalled it.

My Oldsmobile had to have the trans replaced: Street racing and off-roadng put too much stress on it and BAM!

And then we have Marilyn, who got a new transmission: Combination of lack of maintenance, and being young and stupid when I first got it, and daily abuse. Shoulda known better.

So there you have it! Every car I have ever owned has needed a transmission, one way or the other. I just say that nobody has built an ATX to fit my driving style yet :lol:

I am going to put a new PCV valve in soon, she is starting to get close to 1/2 a quart gone, in approx 1k mi.

Cheap 5W30 is going in, i plan on doing a decent change next time with Mobil Super 5000 High Milage, and then transition to synthetic.
