Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
None of the engines in a Ford Taurus use a Timing Belt. They use a timing chain that should last the life of the engine. There is no service interval for a timing chain.

the diagram is located in the engine compartment under the hood.
Clean off the surfaces and it is one of the stickers there.

The 2.0L engine is an interference motor. Extending thereplacement interval could lead to the belt breaking and severe andcostly engine damage. Care must be taken if rotating the crankshaft orcamshafts with the belt off, if resistance is felt, do not force themto turn.

start by unplugin the electric fans then remove the two 10mm bolts holding them in, the bottom of the fans are held in by a slot that they sit in so after you remove 2 bolts just lift the fans out. then you will see a tensioner i think it has 3/8 drive square hole in it( could be 1/2'' drive) just pull it down with a long bar with a 3/8 end on it to release the tension, while doing that slide the belt of,. if your car doesnt have a picture diaghram on the under side of the bonnet for drive belt routing draw a picture incorprating all the pulleys an how the belt goes around them. once the belt is of put the new one on exept over the power steering pump pulley, then pull on the tensioner again to release tension and slide the belt over the p/s pulley. these instruction are for the 4.0l falcon motor, the 5.0 v8 is really similar

go to gates.com and click on the Part Locator & Interchange link on the left, enter your vehicle information, look down and click the camera icon next to the serpintine belt, this is a diagram of how to route it. These engines have a tensioner pulley, it has a 3/8" square drive hole in it to release the tension on the belt, I start at the crankshaft and loop around leaving the tensioner for last, hope this helps, let me know
