    Hi Rod, Long-time-no-speak! You have helped me so many times in the past. Saved me so much money. I had hoped that I would always have a 3.0 Vulcan Taurus, love the car! Unfortunately they are disappearing. Whilst I do still search for another, it seems unlikely that I will own another.
    Although I may not own another, I still am fond of the car and would like to do whatever I can do to encourage the longevity of the model. I can't think of anyone that has done more for the Taurus community than you. Thank you!
    Long story short, I have a hard bound 1996 Ford Taurus service manual with the SHO insert. If you would like, it I will send it to you. I hope it will be used to prolong others Taurii.
    Let me know if you can put it to good use.

    Your friend,

    Taurus GLenn

    Vehicle out of storage April 8th 2016
    *side note my Air bag light has been on for three years - was told by dealer clock spring needs replacing- thanks to the internet and other posts - I checked under drivers seat and the wire was broken - now repaired . All good
    April 11th 2016 - had DCCV replaced by a mechanic in town I know. Still no heat - not able to fully check A/C bit cool out. Will do soon
    Whenever I do the self diagnostic with the buttons as suggested - I get #8888 only - should I be using a different pattern?

    On way to Storage area , approx. 2 miles from my place - engine light came on I pulled over -it said engine failure and was going to overheat. I replaced #1 fuse and sat there for half an hr. to let engine cool. then drove to storage area -with no engine problems - but no heat or A/C Dec 2015 in storage

    Dec 2015 - took to Lincoln dealer about and hr. away for evaluation. Was determined by them for $152 that the DCCV and Aux Circulating pump needed replacing for $1600. I wasn't going to spend that then put into storage.

    Oct 2015 - So weather got colder we didn't need A/C and not much in the way of heat. Only luke warm air when heat on and no A/c- fuse not blown.
    Nov 2015 took # 1 fuse out have heat

    Two weeks later no A/c. Blows extreme heat when air on. Took back to place that removed the gasses. A fuse had blown( front distribution box- position#1- A/C clutch) Replaced it. Had A/C again
    Two days later blown again - took back to service centre again, he tested it and said he thought compressor magnetic field were causing fuse to blow. Recommended a local Auto Electric shop, Which I have used before, for other vehicles.
    Sept- 2015, took to the Auto Electric shop- owner hooked it up but could only get fuse to blow once. The Weather had become too cool to get the A/C to go on and he couldn't get it in the shop due to other commitments. But he did notice that there was little to no heat! as well.
