problem #2

Apr 152011

Taurus SE 6.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 140,000 miles


This car is a piece of sh*t! I've always been a Chevy girl and now I know why!!! The day I bought this car I was actually excited-it seemed nice. The a/c froze me out on the way home. Parked it, got up next morning to go to work and it wouldn't start. 2 hrs later-late to work-thankfully my neighbor a mechanic came over to help. It was battery terminal issue. Got car started, headed to work-no ac. Worked again ONCE (came on by itself) WHEN IT WAS COLD AND RAINING-HEATER COMES ON WHEN IT WANTS TO RANDOMLY BUT A/C HASNT AGAIN. Several mechanics have looked at it-tested ut etc. no one can find a problem and I'll be damned if I pay Ford a F-n penny to look at or fix it. Battery terminal & cable issues off and on for 6 months...finally bought new battery- stil had a few problems every now and then but not as much. Check engine light came on next-auto zone says transmission problem. Trunk now opens by itself randomly while driving. Dome light never goes off (Now I know why there wasn't one in there when I bought the car! Hesitating, coughing, gasping for air and dying at red lights etc. Not exhast leak like I thought-who knows what it is...BASICALLY I THINK THE ENTIRE CARS IS AN ELECTRICAL NIGHTMARE AND ALL MY ISSUES SOMHOW ARE RELATED TO THAT. Stalls, pops out of gear or dies in the middle of the highway. Oh forgot, add engine coolant light been on since day I bought it and no matter how full you fill it it never goes off. Latest issue, add colant light off and now O/D off flashes up and battery light. Service engine soon light remains on...power steering went out and brakes as well. Fill with fluid they both work it runs out asap-repeat steps 1 and 2. I am fixing to go to the store and buy a shorter belt and bypass the power steering since I have already spent 200 and a week and a half on this issue and am done. Told my hudband we should have done that in the first place!!! I cant wait until I can afford another car. I intend to take a sledge hammer, my gun, and dynamite to this MF and release 2 years worth of frustration, and wasted money not to mention labor. I feel like I am forgetting something and I am sure I am. I wouldn't run over my worst enemy with this car for fear that they would become jinxed as well. NOTE TO SELF...NEVER BUY ANOTHER FORD AND IF YOU CANT AFFORD ANYTHING ELSE-WALK UNTIL YOU SAVE ENOUGH MONEY-YOU'RE GONNA BE WALKING ANYWAY. Found On Road Dead thats what FORD stands for!!! Who was that A-hole who told me it was First On Race Day? I'd like to go kick his ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Taurus V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 122,000 miles

when changing the oil, I checked the oil pan for leaks and didn't see any. I also don't see any oil drips under the car...just concerned at the amount of oil the car uses. This is a used car I've only had 3 months. My mpg is 21...is this the best I can expect?
