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

V6 engine

The spark plug gap, for your 2004 Ford Taurus 3.0 liter engine, is .009. Most spark plugs will come pre-gapped.

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.
