Hey guys, Ford Newbie here. Been reading up on this Ford NG and thought I'd
pop in and say hello.
Never owned a Ford before but with a growing family, Wife, two children and
two Basset Hounds we really needed a larger vehicle. Well we just bought a
1992 Ford Taurus GL wagon, 3.8 liter V6 from a private owner for $1800.00.
It has 75,000 miles on it. I really like the car and so does the family.
Only problem I am having is the check engine light keeps coming on after
about 10 minutes of running it. It will usually go off after about a half an
hour of driving. I need to get the codes out to determine the problem. Is
there any way to do this without getting a code reader? Everything seems to
be running fine and we are very pleased with the size, performance and
quality. Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question but I'm just so use to
Chrysler products where keying the ignition on and off three times will give
you the set of error codes. I don't have a clue how to proceed with this
95 Jeep Wrangler
92 Ford Taurus GL Wagon
94 Dodge Shadow (This POS is currently just taking up space in the driveway)
Thanks in advance for any insight you can give me.
