Greetings, My 2000 Taurus is running fine, and the NEW Tranny worked just fine, on my 2400 mile trip, I just returned from.
Gas mileage was fine, 24mpg- to 36 mpg, with tollway driving giving me 29-36 mpg, very happy!!
Now, on to the next issue. I know this is a problem, on some Taurus's, just recently, while returning from my trip, I am getting a "Pulsing" in the brakes, like the rotors are warped, which I hear is an issue with this car.
It is noticible on rough intersections, and really bad at some of the more heavily traveled intersections. It is not too bad, on newly paved roads, and is not too bad, when I apply HEAVY ,or Very light braking.
But, under normal braking, it is very noticible . The rotors are plenty thick, dont know the Spec. right off hand. but thin metal is not the culprit.
I read somewhere that Semi metalic, or metalic brake pads are better to help prevent this, stop this, any Ideas- you ford guys???
Thanks in advance!!!
