I have '91 Taurus Wagon with a really strong 3.8L engine, but
extensive rust, and an opportunity to acquire a 2000 Taurus sedan with
an excellent body, but a bad 3.0L engine. So, my question is whether
it is feasible to bring these two together. Would prefer to use the
later transmission, but could keep the '91 if necessary. Thanks.
Yeah, that's what I wanted to find out before I went off half-cocked,
as I have done all too many times in the past ;^)
Knew they were different generations, but wasn't sure what that
entailed. For example, I was surprised to find that the station wagon
rear hatch from a generation 2 fits the '91 perfectly.
Thanks for saving me lots of grief!

It may be better to find a used 2000 engine (get the same type, as both
the Vulcan and the Duratec are 3.0L) or repair the 2000's engine.
Another confusing aspect is that I believe the 2000 Duratec was the only
one that used coil-on-plug ignition. Earlier and later ones used a coil
pack and plug wires.
