    Before I get stepped on here by others

    Your vehicle is 8 years old
    You wouldn't just do the bearings
    You will have other wear, and want to freshen up the entire engine

    Yes, I realize my vehicle is 8 years old and I would not just do the bearings - I have replaced connecting rod bearings and I still don't know how to remove the mains. Must the engine be removed to do this? Thank you.

    Yes,you need to remove the engine
    You don't just put in bearings
    The entire engine has to be broken down and rebuilt
    Too much work, not to go thru all of it.
    I would get a short block,already remanufactured and have your heads redone

2005 Ford Escape 3 liter, V6, engine knocks while running and increases knocking under acceleration. Maintains power and doesn't miss. Sounds like bottom end or valve train.

Your main and rod bearings are worn and need to be replaced. Continuing to drive in this condition will only damage your engine further.

I have a 1998 Fotd Taurus 3.0 liter V6 and I need to know if it has over head valves or over head cams

Take off the oil fill cap and look in, if you see a chain it is (DOHC) Double Overhead Cam. If you don't see a chain and see a rocker, it is (OHV) Over Head Valve. Hope this helps. Cobra.. :-)

How do i replace the rear spark plugsn a 2002 ford

On the dual overhead cam 3.0 liter you must remove the upper intake plenum to access the right bank spark plugs and wires.
On the single cam 3.0 liter I have seen guys remove the wiper cowel to gain access, but I just reach around the drivers side behind the throttle body.

Hello Diggit.
There were two 3 liter engines available in 1992.
If yours is not the overhead cam equipped engine the capacity in a dry system is 11 US quarts.
If you do have the overhead cam engine it is 11.6 US quarts.
There you are.
Thank you for using FixYa !

Timing belt is broken on a 2002 sebring

The engine in your car is not an interference engine if it is a DOHC (Double Overhead Camshafts), if it is a SOHC (single Overhead Cam) then it is a interference engine u have bent valves and the head will need to come off for repair My reference Gates timing belt catalog. U will need a shop manual to replace the belt also a really good set of hand tools, u will also need to replace the water pump which is driven off the timing belt.
