    Sorry, I was confusing 2002 with 1992. Your engine DOES have a tensioner, but there are 2 versions of the engine. I have posted the 2 belt routings here:

    Please ignore the title of the post and all of the information except the last 2 pictures. One of those 2 pictures should look like your engine.

    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.

    REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
    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.

    The crankshaft turns but won't turn the serpentine belt after radiator fluid got on it!


    Remove and Replace the Serpentine Belt.
    Click on the following free direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagram and Tensioner location for your 3.0L V6 including the DOHC engine.
    http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/2000/make/ford/model/taurus/2000_ford_taurus_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm
    GENERAL/Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
    A. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
    B. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
    C. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
    D. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

    Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
    a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
    b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
    c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
    d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
    e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them

    use a 15mm box wrench on the nut retaining the tensioner pulley to pry the tensioner 'arm' against the spring to release belt. note belt routing on decal under hood,or make a sketch,to aid in replacement.
    on OHV engine rotate clockwise

    be sure belt is completely seated on pulleys
