How hard would it be to change the hoses in a Ford Taurus V6 and could you purchase a diagram of the car?

these hoses are a little difficult because they have molded on clamps but you can use a hacksaw blade or similar tool to cut the metal ends off hoses and replace with new hoses and regular clamps.

Before you start hacking away, buy the right tool and do it right.

There are 2 types of tools for working with the superior factory clamps:

  • Simple pliers-like tool that grabs onto the 'ears' of the clamp
  • A cable-driven tool that is awesome for getting into those buried & tight spaces many clamps are found in.

To the question: this is going to be a time-consuming and sometimes very frustrating project. But one that is well worth the preventative-maintenance effort.

Since you're going to be up-close-and-personal to many parts of the engine, a printed manual will come in very handy. A terrific $20 investment you'll appreciate for the time you own the car.
