Question about 2001 Ford Taurus
The old crankshaft broke off at the engine. How difficult would it be to replace it myself or do I need a mechanic? If mechanic, then how much is reasonable?
Now did the crankshaft break OR the bolt(s) that hold the pulley on broke?
If crankshaft is broke, you are better off finding a replacement engine for what it will cost to repair UNLESS it an expensive special built engine you might want it repaired.
If it is the bolt or bolts your best bet would be an - easyout- set, it looks like a drillbit set kind of. PB blaster and some heat (propane torch) will help. DONT get too hot because you will destroy front engine seal(s) from heat. It will be a tight fit job depending on if it is a sideways engine of standard with radiator in front that you can remove for more working room. Any issues I'll help u out. Done plenty. Paul
