Do i need to replace the oil pump strainer when i replace the oil pump for 1999 ford taurus or repale any other gaskets besides the oil pan gasket


The strainer would need to be completely clean and undamaged or bent, Then okay. Ususally the pan does not come right out, and you have to release motor mounts, and raise the engine.

Cant get oil pan to drop on 2000 ford taurus and what is rear engine plate


I think what you mean by rear plate is the plate next to the oil pan that covers part of bell housing and fly wheel. You take it off right after you take off the starter. To get the oil pan off on this Taurus is a huge job I just had to do it about three weeks ago on my wifes car the oil pan gasket needed changed. It took me a couples of days. The hardest part of the whole job was taking off the exhaust and y pipe with the catalytic converters attached to them and the heat shields that cover them. Once you finally get the bolts off the flanges attached to the manifold it still is a pain in the *** to wiggle it out from under the car. The O2 sensors on the down stream side need removed. If you need any data sheets or diagrams for your car just let me know

Gasket maker for oil pan


While you can use hi-temp silicone ,a much better solution would be ,to purchase the proper gasket,for the application.
It will take the novice mechanic ,about three hour's to complete the task .
Read all of the directions ,and if need be, purchase a good shop manual.

My 2002 ford taurus leaks anti freeze and was told it was head gaskett or timing gaskett. The oil is fine and the leak is not all the time.


More than likely (and hopefully) it is the timing chain cover gasket. Common problem on Tauruses with the Vulcan V-6. Had the same problem. Replaced gasket and leak stopped. Not cheap if taken to a mechanic, but is doable if you have some experience and the equipment.
