Most Taurus's came with either a 3.0 or a 3.8 engine. The water pump replacement is basically the same for both engines.Remove the coolant jug, break loose the bolts on the w/pump pulley, remove the belt, remove the pulley, remove the alternator, remove any tensioners or brackets that hang in the way, remove the bolts holding the water pump to the timing cover, and remove the water pump.

Note: a 3.8 has extra-long water pump bolts that you may have to pull almost all the way out and then bring them out with the water pump assembly.

Helpful hint: Both the 3.0 and 3.8 have 2 motor mounts located on the passenger's side of the vehicle that are held to the subframe by a large nut(aprox 21 or 22mm). One is on the RF corner, the other is back by the firewall under the car on the subframe. If you jack up the car and remove those nuts, the engine can be raised a little using a floorjackwith a block of wood under the oil pan to give additional clearance at the fender apron to get the water pump in andout.

After removing the water pump, scrape gasket surface thoroughly, and install new pump. Evenly tighten the bolts, and reassemble the vehicle in the reverse order as disassembly. Fill with new coolant and burp out any air in the system.

First off is it a 3.0l or 3.8l...i know for a fact the 3.8l's front motor mount must have the nut removed in order to raise the engine up...that's right raise to up buy placing a large thick piece of 2x6 board on the oil pan and CAREFULLY lifting the engine up just enough for the pump to clear the side of the fender...also the pump pulley needs to be placed unbolted on the new pump before installing...and be ready as the wonderful folks on the Ford assembly line are not allowed to use any antiseize on the 10mm bolts they install making bolt breakage a sure thing...Happy motoring..

Answeri just recently done this on a 93 Mercury Sable, to get the pully off u have to raise the engine with a lift and then take pulley off, second the bolts that hold it on, the nuts need to come off and the bolt stays. other wise u can not get the pump on or off. hope this helps, jay

bolt it to the front of the engine not hard just get a chiltons bookat you local autoparts store...its not brain surgury just don't pry on anything or take shortcuts or lose any bolts

AnswerYou don't have to lift the engine to replace the water pump. If you want to, you can. The two front motor mount nuts are located on the passenger's side of the car, underneath on the engine cradle. They should be 21mm or possibly 22mm in size. You can remove them and then, using a piece of wood and a floor jack, raise the front of the engine. But this not necessary. If you remove the coolant jug, water pump pulley, alternator, and possibly the belt tensioner, there is plenty of room to access and replace the water pump, whether it is a 3.0 or a 3.8 liter. On a 3.8, there are long studs that go through the timing cover, but they stay in place, and you only remove the nuts on the ends. There may be one or two of the long ones that are actually bolts and not studs, but even with those, you should be able to have just enough clearance to pull the bolts almost all the way out, and then bring them on out together with the water pump. Unless the car has been wrecked, and something is bent out of place, there should be just enough room to do the job without jacking up the engine.

Answer # 2:

I have just replaced the water pump in my 1994 3.8 Taurus. Here are some of the problems that I ran into. I did not remove the Alternator, just placed it out of the way a bit(no problem here). The water pump pulley cannot be removed when the bolts are undone(must come out with the old water pump).Biggest problem I found were the studs were to long and I was unable to remove the water pump(to close to the body frame). I used a small grinder and was able to grind about 3/8 off of each stud. That allowed me to remove the pulley and water pump out with no further problems. A word of caution, make sure the gasket is clean on the bottom end of the engine and make sure you fill the engine with fluid to look for leaks. Fill fluid in from the top of your new water pump. LOOK FOR LEAKS first before starting to put everything back in order. Much easyier to tighten bolts/nuts when you have access to the water pump. I saved $400 by doing it myself but it took me 8 hours to complete the task.

first up i would not grind 3/8 of an inch off a blot if pump required a shorter bolt the car would come with a shorter bolt. next , it is usually easier to remove the radiator than to lift engine. doesnt take much time and you need to dump coolant to replace water pump anyway
