1999 ford taurus-im running into "1999 only" parts as if 1998 or 2000 cars have many interchangeable parts (lucky me) but my 1999 has to have parts from a 1999 or nos. Am I that lucky or is my parts man...

Try another junkyard if possible and see whether the story is the same. You may have a limited production model. For example, the Mustang (?) SHO equipped with a Yamaha engine or a Ford Interceptor which basically is a Ford chassis with a Lincoln engine under the hood. You also could find a junkyard that will do a global search via computer for the parts you need.

I'm trying to put the tension pulley from a Ford

The 6 cylinder 1.8 engine in the Mazda is not the same as the 3.0 engine in the Taurus.
So I doubt the parts would interchange.

IT is a 1998 taurus SHO model very rare it seems to be. Why can't I find a place that will sell me a Ford Taurus Manual for a 1996-1999 taurus SHO model with the 3.4 V8 yamaha engine.

If you are looking for a haynes manual or something which are based on complete tear down and rebuilds of the car, i would see if on the book itself it lists your engine, yamaha only made one car engine really and it was for the SHO which is fantastic however rare, look online and in google for a manual that lists your car, if you are not a fan of buying online, try phoning a company but unless the book you are searching does not list your engine it might cover all the rest but not your powertrain.

Here is a book i found online its a chilton.

You can use any name brand coolant to include the 50/50 premix type, The colder the environment you live in, the higher percentage of glycol you want to other words.....if you live in the south, you can run the 50/50 mix year round. If you live in the north, you would want to follow the manufacturers suggestion.

1996 Ford Taurus 3.0 v6

Check the fluid as recommended by Ford. Do u have the owners manual? It will give the procedure. I'm quite sure your Taurus trans fluid is checked at operating temp w/ engine running, in park. U can also check the dipstick, Ford usually has the procedure engraved on the dipstick. The reason for checking the fluid as Ford tells u to, is because their method will give an accurate reading. As u can see from checking the fluid in 2 different ways, u got totally different readings.

Where is the coolant drain plug on the engine block?

There is one on the side of each bank. It is pictured on page 1-23 of the Haynes Repair Manual for the 1996 through 1998 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable, photo 26.5. The block coolant drain plugs are one to two inches above the oil pan rail on each side of the engine block.

If you are also looking for the radiator drain fitting, it is on the bottom left corner of the radiator. On some models it may be difficult to access due to the front bumper cover and the plastic panels attached to the back uderside of the cover.

The car is rated low for service and repair accessibility. Poor design by Ford's engineers due to restrictions by Ford's accountants. You can purchase the Haynes Repair Manuals at most auto parts stores or online.
