I have the same car and motor in it. I was told by "autozone" that it was .054.
Check the Vehicle Emission Control Information ( VECI ) decal located in the front
of the engine compartment ( it will show the type of spark plugs to use and the
spark plug gap )
* a 1996 Ford Taurus was offered with either the 3.0 liter VULCAN or DURATEC
The spark plug gap, for your 2004 Ford Taurus 3.0 liter engine, is .009. Most spark plugs will come pre-gapped.
According to the 1996 Ford Taurus Owner Guide : The 3.4 liter V8 engine in a 1996 Ford Taurus SHO takes : ( 6.5 U.S. quarts of 5W-30 engine oil with engine oil filter change )
Common reasons for a 1996 Ford Taurus engine that turns over won't start are a faulty compressor or ignition. The engine may not be able to compress the air/gas mixture well enough for it to burn when the spark fires or the ignition may be unable to produce the spark required to start the combustion process.
yes,why not...because it may have small difference in its external part...but not in engine
A 1996 Ford Taurus GL , with the 3.0 litre " Vulcan " V6 engine , is rated at : ( 145 horsepower )
The spark plug gap for a 1990 Ford Taurus 3.0L engine should be set at .044 inches. A 4.2 liter engine would have a gap between .052 and .056 inches.
For a 1995 Ford Taurus : With engine oil filter change : ( I believe that is 4.5 U.S. quarts for the 3.0 Vulcan , V6 engine ) * that's what it is on a 1996 Ford Taurus 3.0 Vulcan , V6 engine
facing the passenger side of engine
