Good Question :-\
Since the Taurus/Sable was introduced in 1984 there have been
4cyls,6cyls and the SHO V8. So both might be your answer here. While
most new motors use belts, it's possible that chains were on a older
one/ different motor type car. I don't have my car book close by but if
you check a copy of the Haynes or Chilton repair books they should have
a answer for each motor used.
Upon further review...... The engine changes did vary alot over the
production. Here is a list: 2.5 Liter Inline 4cyl HSC 1986-1990, 3.0
Liter Vulcan V-6 1986-present,3.8 liter V-6 (head gasket blower)
1988-1995, Yamaha SHO 3.0 liter v-6 1989-1995,Yamaha SHO 3.2 liter v-6
1993-1995, Duratec 3.0 DOHC v-6 1996-present, SHO 3.4 liter v-8
Like I said, good question.........
i got a 93 taurus, 3.0 and its got a chain... in my taurus book it also
covers the show models.. the sho has a belt.... not that my book
covers all models, only the 93's... i think on older 4 cyl. models they
probably have a belt like most 4 cyl. vehicles have.....
