2005 Ford Taurus Problems

The engine oil pan gasket can develop a leak. Leaking oil may accumulate on the exhaust system resulting in a burning smell. Replacing the gasket should correct this leak.

I had REALLY tight finances right after graduation (hooray for student loans) s...

I don't so much like my car. I purchased this 2005 Taurus back in 2008 as a get to college car. I try to keep up with the maintenance, but as a student, the car has had to skip a few services. I have had had to have its "front-end" replaced 3 times. As a result, of the front-end work, I cannot (I was told it never will) get the car 100% aligned. I have refurbished the brakes once.
