This is fairly involved, essentially easiest to pull the engine. But you will need to get to BOTH ends of your crankshaft to reseal. BE CERTAIN that both are leaking as ANY leaks manifest as rear main seal leaks....because of gravity and air currents of your car.

My wife's Ford Taurus SHO has a leak coming from the hose at the very front of the car, just under wqhere the bumper is. I want to know how to repair or replace it, please.

Typically I wouldn't recommend this, but many auto parts stores sell a product called "StopLeak". This will circulate throughout the coolant system where it finds air at the leak it will seal. I have used it and the leaks persisted requiring replacing a water pump and had a leak stop and never (while I owned the vehicle) come back.

How to put serpentine belt on a 2004 taurus. instruction & diagram

The 8th digit of your car's VIN (vehicle identification number) tells you the engine
type for your car - your choices for Ford Taurus are U (3.0L), and S (3.0L).
I've included the Ford SHO engine too.

Serpentine belt for 3.0L (Vin U) Ford Taurus

Serpentine belt for 3.0L (Vin S) Ford Taurus

Serpentine Belt for Ford 3.4L SHO engine

Water Pump belt for Ford 3.4L SHO engine

  1. Attach a 15mm socket or wrench to the bolt attaching the tensioner pulley.
  2. On all 3.0L (OHV) engines, rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.
  3. On 3.0L (DOHC) engines, rotate the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.

To install:
  1. Install the drive belt on all the pulleys except the tensioner pulley.
  2. Rotate the belt tensioner as outlined in the removal procedure to relieve belt tension and install the belt onto the tensioner pulley. Make sure the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys. Make sure the spring keeper releases or improper belt tension will occur.
Tip: you may want to get (free) a serpentine belt installation tool kit to help with this job.
Both Advance Auto Parts and AutoZone wisely have loan-a-tool programs that permit you
to borrow (for a deposit) their serpentine belt installation kits - which allow their
handy customers to use their auto parts rather than towing it to a garage.

Front seal

You can do it and it will be messy, but much cheaper than $80/hr at a shop, provided you have the time. Best thing is to get a repair guide at an auto parts store (Chilton or Haynes) and with the text and pictures, you will know what to do, how to do it and what tools are needed.

Good luck. I did one and learned alot about other things going on with my car.
