Question about 2004 Ford Taurus
It was just smoking at first a little but i checked the oil level and it was about two quarts low. So I added oil, drove it a bit now its slinging oil all over the passenger side of the motor.Which is where the pullys and belt are located.where is it comming from? im stumped, Any answers?
Valve cover gaskets leaking, this vehicle is known for that. Easy way and lazy way=add stop leak= for the hard way but the right way=replace gaskets=

Is this an OHCam engine or an OHValve engine? On OHC engine, the ENGINE OIL stop leak just might work.THEN change oil out.
Also if you're running really light oil(go one grade heavier), try one oil change with Castrol High mileage oil(for cars with high miles or dried out seals). don-ohio (:^)

let me clarify the belt names for you before that, the fan or serpentine belt is the belt which all the accessories run on like the alternator and power steering pump and is different from the timing belt completely. the timing belt is hidden away and you cannot see it on most cars and keeps the camshaft in sequence with the crankshaft, Im not entirely sure but I believe ford V6s have a timing chain. heres the deal, the idler tensioner pulley has to have some tension put on it to bend it up and out of the way while you place the serpentine belt, study the ider tensioner pulley closely and the diagram under the hood, the idler pulley has a large bolt in the middle which you have to put a socket and wrench on .using force against the spring loaded pulley, either push down or up on the pulley with the wrench to temporarily give you the clearance needed to set the belt and gently release, (having a helper helps) once you doublecheck that the belt is PERFECT then start the car. My 83 LTD's idler pulley is adjusted with a bolt, I believed they have changed it to the spring loaded design that I spoke about above, if its the spring loaded design, that should do it,

which belt what is it driving powersteering? some times the tensioner pully is acessible from the bottom under the car or hidden at a not so easy place to get ur hands just follow belt and keep looking

was this the bolt in center of the tensioner pulley? if so you will need to remove and replace the tensioner assembly, if not which bolt did you break?

There will be a tensionor pully, that is a pulley that is connected to an arm that is spring loaded in order to produce tension on your belt. By releasing tension on this pully, you can remove the belt. The pulley will have a way to do this using hand tools. Most have either a bolt head you can grip with a pry bar and the appropriate size socket, some have a square hole where the socket - drive pry bar will fit directly, but the age old plain pry bar can be used by itself to release the tension. This should be done with two people if possible, one to release the tension while the other removes the belt...
Here is a link to the diagram of your serpentine belt layout... http://www.mvreader.com/multiview/dayco/zoom.php?zoom_item=C0002R&l=n&catalog=auto&category=2
