Does the camshaft position sensor drive the oil pump on a 99 ford tauraus 3.0 engine? Ford Taurus: 3.0 liter 12 valve engine, 1997 - 2006. The shaft that is used to rotate the camshaft position sensor also rotates the oil pump. The shaft is driven by a worm gear on the camshaft. The position sensor end of the shaft can fail and poor engine performance results, if the entire shaft quits rotating because of a gear failure the oil pump quits rotating (pumping) and the resulting lack of engine lubrication causes the crankshaft bearings to fail and the engine will stop (permanently) within seconds.
THE CAM POSITION SENSOR IS LOCATED ON THE DRIVERS SIDE. THE INTAKE MANIFOLD IS CUT OUT WHERE IT SITS ON TOP OF THE ENGINE BLOCK.IT IS BLACK IN COLOR AND HAS 2 5.5 MM SCREWS THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE

The Mercury Sable and the Ford Taurus will have DOC in printed on the engine if they are dual overhead cam engines. The symbol should be on the top of the engine.
99% sure the Taurus radiator will be a perfect match to the Sable's.
My advice is to save yourself some problems later on. Take it to a professional and have it installed.
