Re: Would you buy this Taurus? '99, 97K, Typical Heater Issues
I'll be soon passing 140K miles on my '99 SE sedan. What's this with the heater issue?
I thought a few years ago that the thing was blowing air too hot, so I replaced the thermostat with a lower 180F unit (stock is 195F).
I haven't had any problems with it, but I noticed that the coolant reservoir is nearly the same colour as the coolant itself, making checks a bit more difficult as I can't see the level from outside. I have to remove the cap, shake the vehicle slightly to get an estimate on where the level is. Nothing that isn't too typical in a vehicle that's 11, going on 12 years old! I cannot complain.

Amsoil in all vehicles!
