My daughter has a 2003 ford taurus stationwagon. In town it has not pick up. She is trying to drive home from about 100 miles away and cant get the car to go above 40. It works for a little while after...


I need more input; like How many miles does it have, or what kind of engine does it have, example: 3.0 litter Vulcan or duratec (the Vulcan is a regular 12 valve engine while the Duratec has dual overhead cams 24 valves) does it run rough when in Idle, does it hesitate under acceleration? Did the "check engine" light come on? It could be a number of things, I am going to try to narrow it down by the symptoms. Which is very difficult. The Ideal would be to get the "check engine light" ON so we can retrieve a code.

Good Morning, I am in need of a serpentine belt diagram for a 2000 ford taurus, 3.0L W/ air condtioning. could someone please help me with this? thank you in advance.


Well, there are actually two different 3.0L engines used in a 2003 Mercury Sable. One is an Overhead-Valve (OHV) type engine. The other is a Dual Overhead Cam (DOHC) 24-valve engine. You can tell the difference by just looking at the engine or by checking the 8th digit in your VIN. For the OHV engine the 8th digit of the VIN will be a "U" and the DOHC engine will be an "S".

This is important information when it comes to getting parts or information for your vehicle.

Anyway, I have provided belt routing diagrams below for BOTH of these engines.

IS THE 3.0L - 6 CYLINDER A DUAL OVERHEAD CAM ENGINE IN MY 1997 FORD TAURUS


It is most likely not a DOHC only 8% of the 1997 ford taurus's cam with DOHC but you can tell if you look inside of your engine compartment the calve cover or top of the engine will look like this photo.franktilt.jpg

How do you tell if it is a duel overhead cam


On your car it will say 24 valve on the valve cover. The 8th digit on the VIN number will be "S" If its not a "S" its a 8 valve engine. 'U" is the most common engine

How do I find out what size engine is in my 2001 Ford Taurus? I'm trying to get a new transmission for it and I'm not sure which is the best one because I don't know all the specifics.


Look at the 8th digit of the vehicle identification number.

If it is a U it is a 3.0 liter overhead valve.

If it is an S it is a 3.0 dual overhead cam.

Trying to locate engine number to determine 16 0r 32 cam


Unfortunately, your question is very vague and hard to understand.

16 or 32 cam?
Usually your engine will have twin cams, or single cam.
Overhead cam(s) or not. You could determine if your engine
is a 4 or a 6 cylinder, and then you will generally find out how
many valves the engine has.

If you are in a 4 cylinder car, you probably have 16 valves if you have a twin cam engine.
If you have a single cam, 4 cylinder engine, then you will usually have only 8 valves.

The only way that you could end up with 32 valves, is if you have a dual overhead cam, v-6 engine.
Each head will have two cams, and each cylinder will have 4 valves then.

I hope that this is what you were trying to ask. :)

I need a picture of the spark plugs on a 1998 ford taurus numbered


I don't have a link with pictures, but I will describe the cylinder and coil numbers for both the overhead valve (OHV) and the overhead cam (OHC) as best I can.
Facing the engine from the front bumper.
On the 3.0 overhead valve (OHV) the cylinder location looks like this:
1 2 3
4 5 6

The coil location looks like this:
5 1
6 2
4 3

If you have the 3.0 overhead camshaft (OHC) engine again facing the engine from the front bumper your cylinder location looks like this:

1 2 3
4 5 6

Your coil location looks like this:

4 6 5
3 2 1

I hope this was helpful.
