Taurus Engine

Can anyone here point me to where I can find information on which years/models used the same engine as a 99 Taurus? It is a 3.0 Vulcan. Thanks

What is it your trying to do? Although many years use the same basic engine, somewhere around 95 they added a cam sensor and went with coil packs.

3.0's maybe, but NOT the same exact engine.

Well mister correction person if you know that why don't you tell him what is the same exact engine. Yeah, that's what I thought!

A little sensitive are we?
For starters, it should be a front drive unit.
The engines have been improved over the years and parts changed. And the horse power went up.
Around 95/96 or so, they added a cam position sensor and coil packs. Horsepower was gradually improved with the years. somewhere late 90's they changed the intake Plenum too.
My guess is he has the the newer vulcan with the changed intake plenum. A junkyard with a Hollander book would know the specifics.
3.0's (non duratec) are relatively cheap to find used. There are always some on Ebay. Its probably not worth rebuilding one for what you can get a used one for. And they usually outlast the car there in. My 93 has over 200K on it now. As far as i can tell, 98 and 99 should be the same. Anything else might work with acessory swap if you do your homework..

These will not interchange FWD/RWD/Years. You need to do a Hollander interchange search as used on http://www.car-part.com /.

Well Mr. Helpy Helperton, why don't you go one step further and give him a list. I guess that demonstrates the weakness of the tweeker generation.

Well, he did ask to be "pointed", he did not ask for the actual information, and he will learn more about the Hollander interchange if he works on the site himself to get the specific information required.
He's too bashful to tell us the reason for his quest, as someone else inquired about, so without specifics I won't offer a concrete answer.
