It can be done over a weekend for someone that's done an engine swap before.
Get a manual on your car from DISCOUNTAUTOREPAIRMANUALS.COM. there are many seals and some have to be done with the engine out.
because it really dont need one. there's no need to check the timing because its all done by sensors and engine computer
depends on what needs to done, the transaxle is the transmission
Yes, it can be done.
It is located on the right hand side of the engine (you standing at the front of the car) under the wiring harness going up into the engine to the left of the throttle cable. Real pain to get at and replace but can be done with no special tools. 7/32 in. wrench is the only way to get at it.
The Supplemental restraint system needs service and associated repairs done. Then clear the associated codes
It really depends on how far gone they are. I assume you have rust issues (these rust underneath the plastic molding affixed to the rocker). I would strongly recommend that any work done be done by a professional body man and there are panels available to make this repair: http://www.tri-proautomotive.com/servlet/the-Ford-cln-Taurus/Categories
The most damage is what is done to your wallet!I personally wouldn't expect anything adverse to come of the oversight - hours of idling is not that different from hours of highway driving.
Yes, I used to have a 94 taurus, and i had the radio changed, so i assume if it could be done on a 94, it could be done on a 96
The cost of replacing a water pump if the person is doing it at home should be under 100 dollars. If done at a shop the price varies drastically around 250 would be average.
NO. at least not in a cost effective manner. while engine swaps CAN be done... all components associated with EVERYTHING must be changed too. ie computer, transmission. wiring, all under hood accessories.... therefore... not worth doing.
A tune up for a 1998 Ford Taurus can cost varying amounts of money. This depends on where you get it done at. It might cost you $100 or it could cost over $500.
Not likely, though anything can be done with ingenuity and lots of money!
to answer the question, yes. it can be done you just have to swap your old parts or mod the harness. *flex* i did it
Depending on where you get it done, somewhere between $700-$1000. It is a pretty involved job.
It can be done, but it won't be a simple of matter of just dropping it in.
I just finished changing out one on my 1995 Ford Taurus GL Wagon with a 3.8 engine. I found it in the left side of the firewall. It's plugged into a receptacle there. I understand that was done because the modules previously had overheated when mounted on the side of the distributor. If yours is not on the firewall, it may be either on the distributor or on the wheel well.
My 2000 Ford Taurus 3 Liter DOHC 6 cylinder engine uses the plastic coolant reservoir cap in place of a conventional pressurized cap on the radiator. So all coolant flush and refill can be done through the coolant reservoir and it's drain hose connection located directly below near the passenger side front tire. Follow the reservoir's bottom hose down to find the drain connection with spring clamp.
I am going through the same thing on a 2003 taurus. this is really a pain in the rear. As far as i can tell, i need to remove the entire steering column. I am out of daylight today and as soon as i get done I will post the results here.
Buy the correct color side mirror at a Salvage Yard and replace it. Can be done with simple tools.
the first 2 back there are not that bad but # 1 is a son of a gun to get at 1/4in ratchet and adapter and hope it's not in there to tight ... can be done...
It is possible, but you would have to modify the engine bay slightly. This has been done before in the SHOWagon Project (converting a SLO Station Wagon into a SHO Wagon) and in Project SHO involving a 4th gen Taurus SE (2000-2006) conversion to a 4th gen Taurus SHO.
i have the same problem like you, may you tell me what u have done ?
No - the head gasket repair can be done with the engine still in the vehicle.See "Related Questions" below for more
