Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
Just go to your local PEPBOYS or KRAGEN.. auto parts stores... they can look up in the computer system the make and model of your car. They should be able to tell you the amount you'll need. And if you're still not sure...
buy atleast 5 quarts semi-synthetic (check with store proper weight)
when you haev drained ALL of the oil, changed out the filter putting the new one in first then putting in the oil pan drain plug.. please make sure you do both of these parts....
Now, Take ONE quart at a time and let them drain into your engine (fill cap on valve cover or otherwise noted) and after the third one... simply pull out the oil levl dip stick and look. It will tell you when you are in specs... the dip stick will read full (cold) if noted. Then drive for a day and check it again when the engine is hot it should still read within specs...You probably will need four quarts but some engines need three and a hlaf or four and a half... just be patient..
LASTLY just take it to jiffy lube... they've go the car manuals. When they're done and they are nice enough... just ask "How much oil DID you put in my car?" "thanks"

You can get a .pdf version of the 2001 Ford Taurus Owner's Manual at: http://owner.ford.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=Owner/Page/OwnerGuidePage&year=2001&make=Ford&model=Taurus
It has instructions and guides for finding and replacing the fuses in a 2001 Ford Taurus. It starts on page 146-147.
Always use the specific Owner's Manual for the correct Model Year of a Ford or Mercury vehicle. I recently purchased a 2001 Ford Taurus, and had thought that I could use the Owner's Manual from a 1999 Mercury Sable from a friend. BUT, I figured out that each model year can be very different (before any serious damage happened.) Good luck.
