See "Related Questions" below for more about Taurus/Sable waterpumps
There are two models of the 3.0 they put in the 97 Taurus. A 3.0 OHV Vulcan and a 3.0 DOHC Duratec. In order to even gain access to the water pump you must first remove the accessories above it. IE alternator. It is an involved job. Plan at least 4 hours if you are new to mechanics. Then continue onto....

First loosen the 4 bolts on the pulley on the water pump, then remove the belt, tensioner and idler pulley. You will be able to get to all the bolts (some larger 10mm and some smaller 8mm) Install reverse of removal, not to hard to do just remember to drain the coolant. Not as easy to get to though.
