I was replacing the air filter and noticed that one of the sides of the top of the housing is cracked and would like to replace it.

    1994 Ford Taurus SHO ATX No Reverse Lights

    I was working on my learning car last night and I noticed that my reverse lights don't come on when I put the car in reverse whether it's on or off.

    I've got a 2004 Taurus DOHC 3.0 V6 that every once in a while would have problems accelerating. At first I thought this would have been just some dirty injectors so I just used some injector cleaner. The problem stopped for a little while but then came back stronger. Lately the car has had...
