Ford taurus air compressor

Ask if the system was checked for leaks. Not just die checked but by actually hooking up gauges and watching. The system could be pulling in air ( and moisture) after being shut down. This is unlikely. But when you eliminate the obvious you have to start looking at the unlikely.

Is Ford still repairing the coil problem on the LS V8 2003. I had one done in 2008 (it was covered by Ford) and forgot about it. The Check Engine light came on so I had another coil fixed at another shop...

Never go to a dealer
If you don't do your own work, stay with the
local repair shop

Your out of warantee a long time ago

You will loose one or two coils a year
They are $59.00 at the auto parts store
One bolt,10 min ,and your done

If you have a V6 and they go bad on the pass side, you have to
remove the upper intake for coils or plugs

Other fords the same. You know what not to buy next
time, or look over the motor first

I have spent $59.00 on my 2004 V8 and others
on this site are up to $4000.00 at a dealer and nothing
fixed,point made.
You need to know the technology and how it works,test
first,not the dealer way,then replace parts if necessary

Chrysler Sebring 2004 Convertible Bad Battery Charge Problems

I would look at the alternator. I had a grand am that would do that to me, even with a brand new battery. The alternator output wasn't able to run the vehicle and charge the battery. Alternators are picky things, especially being in Canada (which I assume from the KM), the hot and cold cycles don't play nicely with the brushes and core. I'd have the alternator checked and replaced if needed.
