I have a 2002 Ford Taurus wagon and was wondering how you tell if it's a ohv or ohc

Ohc has oil fill on the left above cam sprocket and plugs down the middle of the head.


ohv has the oil fill toward the right on the valve cover.

Will a 2.2sfi thats it in a 2000 fit in a 2005 cav. That have a blowen up 2.2 ecotech please give me a call at

you need to be careful on this, the way to determine if a certain engine will fit your vehicle, look at your vin number located on the drivers side at the very bottom of your windshield. the 8th digit is the engine code, and the 10th digit is the year make. as in my case my 8th digit is an "f" which refernces a 2.4l ohc wo/egr, the year codes (10th digit) are as follows:

the engine codes (8th digit) are as follows:
4.........2.2l ohv
d........2.3l ohc
t........2.4l ohc
f........2.4l ohc

the biggest thing is wether your vehicle has an egr (exhaust gas recirculation) the engines with this will not work in ones that do not and vice-versa!
hope this helps!

Peogeot 406 gearbox moves side 2side when in gear

Well either the bellhousing bolts are loose if its moving side to side and if its moving back and forewards then its the mounting at the back of the bellhousing where mounting is fitted or the bolts retaining the mounting to the bellhousing

You would have to change engine, OHC-over head cam is the cam sets on top of the cylinder head, OHV-over head valve the cam sets in the center of the engine using pushrods to open/close the valves.

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.

Clutch slipping on my mk3 mondeo are the hard 2 change

It genrally depends, This dropping one side of the engine to take the gearbox off and replacing the clutch .when doing up the bolts the engine rotates so you have to have someone to help.the hardest bit i find is getting it back on as it has to fit on a drive shaft and it must be perfect and no weight can be put on it or you will either bend it or snap it.

hope this kinda gives you an idea.
