It looks like it depends upon whether your Taurus has a four cylinder or a V6 ......I am guessing the V6 has the timing chain and the 4 has the timing belt.

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.

There are a number of causes for this to happen, jumped timing chain/belt, shorted coil(s), plugged fuel filter, faulty fuel pump or a number of sensors. A plugged catalitic converter could also be the cause. If you can describe more details of the event I can help you locate the cause

Want to know at what mileage one needs to replace the timing belt on a 1999 Ford

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.

Let me know if you have any questions and thank you for using!

It is likely your timing belt/chain has slipped a notch. Remove timing cover and check valve timing and condition of belt/chain. If you need help, please let us know.
