Taurus fans work great - some wonderful write-ups on it. In fact, I think there might even be something in the FAQ about it.

Mine has been cooling really well for 6 years now. Same fan...I suspect the spare I've had in the roof basket for many moons is shot due to being rained on for all that time

I replaced my radiator, coolant temp
Sensor and serpentine belt. It's running nice and cool once again. Hopefully I can now get the infamous "bad coolant sensor" alarm to stay off.

The infamous "bad coolant sensor" is caused by loose contacts in the VIC, not by a bad component. If it's caused by a bad component, it's a real "bad coolant sensor" warning, not of the infamous type.

Fat chance it will go away
It's a problem with the Vic itself

Had about the worst experience one could have with my o2 sensor. First, getting the bad one out was disasterous. I didn't have a torch cause my dad was at work, so I muscled it off. Well, I guess my brand new y-pipe and o2 sensor had such a good time together, they didn't want to get separated. After all was said and done, there were no threads left in the bung for the sensor, almost. There were a few threads at the bottom of it, so I ended up cutting the top of the bung off with a sawzall and a ****ty blade to get to the threads at the bottom. I kept telling myself there IS some way this will get completely fubar'd. But to my suprise, it ****ing worked. Then I had to go through the pain in the *** process of trying to plug the damn thing in. So that was my fun for today.

The only reason it has worked flawlessly for 6 years is because it knows you have a spare up there. As soon as you take it out it kaboom!
