Cooling System Fluids & Additives
Color has nothing to do with the composition of the coolant (corrosion inhibitors in the coolant, to state it more accurately). This applies to green, orange, and any other-color coolant. Brand-new cars don't consume coolant. If it does, have it rep

The rough idle could be a dirty Idle Air Control Valve. The noise...everyone's perception is different. One person's "loud" is another's normal. My Dakota has a little top end noise upon could start no matter what the exterior temperature.

The oil is from a failed spark plug well seal. This is a strip that seals all four plug wells so replacement will require replacing the entire valve cover gasket set. The water mix is a mystery. It's possible that moisture has accumulated in the wel

I saw a truck load of the 2015's going down the road but it was too short of a look to decide what I think. Seeing them on video and in pictures I'm not too crazy about them. I guess they'll be a better track running car anyway. I love the 2013/2014

Don't use that stuff. There is no Dex 4. Its just a multi vehicle fluid Dex III/Mercon and they add some sort of additive to it. I suggest either doing it yourself with Dex VI fluid or let the dealer or a well known indy do it.

Another note, if you're starting at 12.2V, then turning on the headlights for 10 minutes decreases the voltage down to 11.9V (I would again let this rest a while to let the voltage rebound), that would mean that you went from 50% SOC down to about 12

I wouldn't be surprised at all if the car needed a starter. The oil filter is very close to and above the starter on Vulcans, so the starter gets covered in oil every time the filter comes off. I don't think the Taurus ever came with the funnel tha
