Question about 2002 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Found a 4 inch x 2 inch piece of curbed metal under my Taurus

I hit a pot hole about a week ago and this morning found this piece of metal under my car. Could it have fallen off my car? No warning lights or notable noises I can remember.

You shouldn't have anything to worry about i mean i cant tell you 100 percent without seeing a picture of that metal but im pretty sure its just a piece of the rocker panel and that is the sides of the cars but underneath and they make little pieces of metal like that under there so you can jack the car up and it be stronger and not be directly on the paint.... If you have anymore questions feel free to ask and if you get a moment if you could please just rate me.

I hit a pot hole and my battery died the next morning. I got it tested and it was bad. I bent both right side wheels after hitting a pot hole. My car won't stay charged. Active steering is off too.

I would check all earth wire on your car , as it sounds if there is a bad earth wire or a broken one ., this would explain your battery going flat and the flat battery would probably cause your problem with the steering as it will probably be an electric steering pump

Removal of brake light switch on nissan sentra 1996

If you follow the lever that has the brake pedal on it toward the top of the dash board (about 6-8 inches up from the pedal) you'll see a hole with a metal button. That means the plastic piece that fits over the button has broken or fallen off, and when you hit the brake the button is too far away for it to turn on the brake lights. You can buy plastic buttons for the brake light control at any auto parts store. Or put a piece of sticky tape between it and your brake lights should work again. If you are guessing if you have the right button, press it and have someone see if the brake lights go on.

A couple of weeks ago I hit a pot hole that was covered in water and couldn't tell it was there until to late and my Lincoln Navigator 98' started shaking badly right after I hit the pot hole. Now every...

It is most likely a coil electrical connection,or a coil that is shorted out,but you will have to have some one check the vehicle to see if that is the problem,from what you have said,this is the best solution .
