It either 12 or 24.
if its a 24 valve it will say something like dohc dual over head cam or sohc single over head cam for 12 valves.
it may even say 24 valve somewere.

theres 2 or 4 valves per cylinder.

if its 24 valve it will say somewere if you cant tell just get a starter for the 12 valve.

if your going to the parts store to get the parts just ask the person to conferm for you as this will need to be confermed.

hope this helps
thank you

The two have nothing to do with each other. You just get a starter for a 99 Taurus with a 3 litre engine.

I need to know where the starter on a 1995 V6 3.0


It's nearly impossible to see from the top so don't bother opening the hood unless the sun is at the exact right angle allowing for a little trickle of light to help you see it while flat on your back in your new suit on the way to a job interview. Fortunately it's very easy to find with the car flat on the ground. If you slide under the front of the car you'll see it right smack in the middle (side to side) and right up front. It's a cylindrical part about the size of a small loaf of bread and runs horizontal to the moving path of the car.

1999 ford taurus starter will not engage


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my knowledge, you assumption is correct on most designs. That wire should go to the ignition switch and will be hot when key is in START. However, same wire often would be connected first to a relay that is interlocked with some conditions/status other then key to START. They would be:
  • automatic transmission should be in neutral/park with light indicated;
  • alarm/security/immobilizer is inactive/OFF.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
