Question about Ford Taurus

1 Answer

I have a 2008 ford taurus with only 40,000 km on it and they tell me the back rotors need replacing. This does not seem to be normal; I have been running a Honda for 10 years and only had to change the rotors once, Is there something wrong with the ford rotors. Should I be replacing them with a substitute product.

Depending on your weather conditions & your climate. Rain, snow, ice, salt or sand along with the heat build up under normal braking, it is very common to need front &/or rear rotors replaced starting at 30 to 40,000 miles. Besides the heat build up they rust & warp & will need to be replaced at that mileage.

Hi, Sounds like a bad coil or a bad spark plug. Also check for codes on computer. (ECU.)

Changing rear brake pads on 2008 Ford Taurus and a threaded rod located within the caliber piston prevents compression of piston back into the caliber.


You need a special tool for rear pads. The pistons have to be turned in, there is either slots or holes in the piston for the tool to fit in, then just turn the piston clockwise and push a little at the same time.
Just turn them in far enough for the new pads to slide over the rotor.

How to release tension on parking brake cable to remove from rear caliper - 2008 Ford Taurus X


you should'nt have any tension on the parking brake,unless it's on. check the parking brake to insure that it's in the off position. chock" the rear wheels,to make sure the car does'nt roll while you're jacking it up and "always use jackstands,do not trust your jack" does your brake caliper piston have a + on it?it will be on the brake caliper piston itself, if so,then you need to back the brake caliper piston back in by turning it counterclockwise,auto parts stores sell a special tool to back the brake calipers back into place, i've always used a straight screwdriver,to turn the piston counterclockwise some do turn clockwise though to retract the brake piston. a simple call to the auto parts store where you're purchasing the brakes will tell you which way the piston will need to be retracted.other wise,it's a simple brake replacement,just push the brake caliper cylinder with a "C" clamp to retract the brake caliper, also,if you are replacing brake rotors,purchase the brake kleen to spray on the new brake rotors when you replace those.they have a clear film on them,you'll need to remove that film to insure no future issues with the brake rotors.simply spray the front and back of the brake rotors with this spray to remove the protective "film"and as always,thank you,for choosing fixya.com!

Rear brake pads replacement how do i remove and replace i tried to take the calpiper off and got the bolts removed but the old pads are tight againset the rotor


Yes they will be. Especially if you have the parking brake applied. The piston must be pressed back into the caliper cylinder completely to install the new pads. So you need a tool to do this. Ask at the autoparts store where you purchased the pads for the correct tool for you vehicle. You need to pry them back a little to slip the pads past the unworn ridge on the rotor, then use the tool to press the piston back into the cylinder all the way.

I can't seem to get off the front rotors of my 2000 Ford Taurus V6 3.0 DOHC 24v. I banged and banged away from every angle but no movement what-so-ever. Are the rotors held on by wheel nut?; I can't tell....


No there is a screw that has to be broken loose with a spring hammer, you also have to remove the caliper bolts 2 of them. and remove the holders so the rotor will come off.

Brakes on 2002 Honda CRV


It sounds like there is a problem with the current calipers, it would be cheaper to try replacing the current ones with a new one NOT FROM HONDA. buy an aftermarket caliper and try that. Dealerships will try to screw you over and take money from you when its not necessary.
