How do I replace Variable timing cam solenoid on a 2008 ford taurus sel 3.5 engine


That is a huge job. It's inside the timing chain cover. If it's like the triton v-8. Seriously, done it. Big job for the average person. If youre a mechanic you can handle it. Plan on 8 hrs anyway.

Have a 2000 mercury Sable needing struts on the back would it be wise to put new ones on or used


Used struts are already worn. Labor may cost more than the price difference unless you have the ability to do the job yourself and can find used but like new struts at a pull it yourself junkyard. If you had the ability to change struts yourself, you probably wouldn't be asking.
Ford Taurus has the same chassis as the Mercury Sable.

1999 ford taurus driver side back end lower had strut replaced in 08. can I still drive it


I think you have answered your own question. By asking, it shows that you are doubtful about it, and that is is really noticeable. That makes it Unroadworthy, and dangerous to drive. It will give poor road-holding and handling, and could cause a deadly accident. Better have that strut replaced again, and ask the Mechanic to find out what is causing these struts to wear out so quickly.

My wifes taurus right rear strut is leaking fluid also sway bar mounting rod had a bolt snap off how much do you thinks it would cost to repair.thankyou.


Labor rates vary by location and shop, so it's hard to give an exact estimate. I will say that (if they are more than two years old) you should replace both rear struts, and if the front struts are more than about four years old, you most likely should replace them too.
Parts cost for the struts are about $100-$200 each depending on model and such. labor should be about the same amount. So you are looking at $400-$800 for both rear struts or $800-1600 for all four.
Assuming the bolt is not hard to reach to drill out, it should not be more than $50 or so. If it is hard to reach, it could be more.

I NEED THE STRUTS AND ROTORS REPLACED ON MY 1999 FORD TAURAS I WAS QUOTED A PRICE OF 500 AND THIS A LITTLE STEEP FOR ME HELP


yea id'e say for parts it probably $200, but labor should only be like another $100-$175= $300-$375 not $500. its probably some lazy shop guys or some weirdo with a wrench that wastes time for the extra buck.

1995 Ford Taurus stabilizer bars cause rear end of car to ''sway''.


If you are any kind of car savy then you can do this yourself. Go to your local parts store and buy the stabalizer link kits. The stabalizer links are located behind the tires and bolt to the struts at the top and the stabalizer bar on the bottom. You don't need any special tools for this project and the stabalizer bars will cost you anywhere from 30-65 dollars a piece.
