Wrench Warning, Limp Mode

Hi guru's, About a month ago I was driving the 08 Trex when I heard a Thunk and the wrench warning light illuminated. everything felt fine until I stopped at a red light and was unable to accelerate away. The RPM's would go up, but the vehicle would barely move. I made it home (about a mile), shut t...

Re: seems to surge at low speed/ coming to a stop

pwschuh, I got to spend the first 3 months of 2018 in Michigan and had a resurgence of the problem where I would seem to surge forward when stopping in the snow. I have discovered the cause. Seems I was not moving my foot enough to the left to only be on the brake, but left my heal on the gas pedal....

Re: seems to surge at low speed/ coming to a stop

Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but I experienced something strange in my 08 T-Rex yesterday and this is as close as I get on a search. It snowed in Austin Texas yesterday, kind of a last hurrah for 2017. I was coming to a stop at a stop sign and the vehicle started to slide, so I pushed the bra...

Re: Rear Windshield washer line location - Leak/missing

In the second picture, the disconnected line actually goes under the black cross bar. I couldn't see anything to connect to the line in the area, but when I reached down about 10" below the line, I found a rubber hose just hanging. I connected it to the plastic tube shown and it now sends water to t...

Re: Rear Windshield washer line location - Leak/missing

Hi pwschuh,

I found the thread you mentioned and had found it before, but it didn't help:

viewtopic.php?t=3726#p42478

I'm going to upload some pics here in a minute, I just have to reboot to get my phone and PC talking again.

Re: Rear Windshield washer line location - Leak/missing

Hi pwschuh,

I did look for something, but didn't seem to find anything. I'll try again since you remember something being here.

Appreciate the reply,

Kevin

Rear Windshield washer line location - Leak/missing

Hi all, My 08 Taurus X has a missing hose from the Windshield Washer bottle to the squirter in back. The lines for front and back come off the bottle and up then get directed to the firewall area. Right under a brace, the one going to the front takes a turn and the one that feeds the back has no rub...

Re: Anyone With An Aftermarket Double Din Stereo?

Looks great, how does it perform compared to the stock unit? I've never had great luck with replacement stereos, as they always seemed to require more power in order to get the system to perform as good as the stock one sounds. Thanks for any follow up and maybe some daytime pics of the completed in...
