    '02 Taurus hesitating to start

    Check the battery cable connections and make sure they are clean and tight. If it’s a 2v 3.0, the starter is right below the oil filter and starters are common to fail on those from oil contamination. Checking the starter draw would be a good start also. It’s a super easy starter to change so you could even have it bench tested. But because they have a high failure rate, if I take it off it’s getting a new one.

    Tech Warranty

    Don’t forget if you decide to purchase a Lincoln ESP, you can easily anytime before the 4/50 runs out. Several places sell them online for $100 over cost. I hope she enjoys her MKC.

    Tech Warranty

    That is not accurate. The only items not covered by the 4/50 warranty will be wear items like wiper blades and brake pads. They are 12/12. I have always been told light bulbs and adjustments are supposed to be in that same 12/12 warranty. However, I’ve never seen a customer charged for those items under the bumper to bumper warranty.

    Who checks this a blind person?

    I went to work for my families construction and window and door company. I was ready for a change. Jury is out if I’ll like it or not.

    Back in the day I had a 97 thunderbird with one cloth seat and the rest leather. I did have an F150 with a Lobo king ranch emblem on the tailgate. If Ford thinks it’s better to fix in the field, then let us fix the damn things and don’t give your dealers shit for QC screw ups. These hoops are one of the reasons I decided to try a new career.

    Ford treats its dealers like they are stealing from them when it comes to warranty repairs. They look for anything not to pay.

    Things like that are inexcusable. However, if they don’t get fixed at the factory, they probably won’t be fixed until a customer complains. Ford warranty has dealers scared of doing repairs like these without customer complaints.

  11. Yeah I’ve been there a several times but don’t live there. I guess I was thinking the bus services and I have used that people mover around the cobo center.

    Time to move on

    Thanks for all the well wishes. I’m actually working for my family’s business. I’ll be in construction and high end windows and doors.
  13. This may have been discussed before, can CD6 platform be switched to a car quickly? Did Ford have a plan B Incase cars come back in style, can they throw a top hat on and get back to business of selling cars?
  14. I just can’t get behind this Hackett guy. I’m trying to be optimistic, but he just doesn’t seem to be the right guy for the job. But time will tell. Let’s see what happens!
