Ford Taurus 3.0L 12v Timing Cover Coolant Leak Repair
This is my favorite gasket set to complete this job-
If the front cover is pitted here is a complete kit front cover included-
If the water pump is needed this is the one to get-
This is the serpentine belt tensioner tool I use Here-
This is the Engine Sealant I recommend-
In this video I show how to remove the front cover on the 3.0L 12v Vulcan
engine. Coolant leak from the main coolant ports is very common on these.
This can be a very costly repair, with this video I am sure anyone with any
mechanical experience can handle this job with ease.

if your about to do this job your self please watch and you will have a
good understanding of how to do it. or at least whats involved.
This was a weekend project and i thought i would document it for fun... and

where i took it.
i did this job my self for just over $200 including the fallowing:
head gasket kit
new head bolts
new coolant reservoir
new spark plugs
RTV Black sealant
Quick set epoxy
and some coolant system flush.
for me it was better than buying a new car...

2013 Ford Taurus SHO review - Autoweek Drives
For 2013, Ford not only freshened the Taurus with a new grille, fascia and
reworked rear end—including updated LED taillights—but the high-end SHO
model is fortified with a Performance pack. Roger Hart gives us his take on
this performance package.
For a written account of Roger's time with the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO:
2013 Ford Taurus SHO Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO.
"SHO" or "S-H-O" designates "Super High Output" and represents the twin turbo V6 under the hood. V8 power with V6
MSRP pricing for the Taurus, before options, starts at:
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth educational videos of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

2013 Ford Taurus SHO Road Test
Can you drift a 2013 Ford Taurus SHO like Nascar racer Carl Edwards does in
the commercial? I tried and couldn't. This press car didn't have the ESC
button in the center console to disable the stability management system so
try as I might, the car would never get sideways.
I did however find out how great this car is at being a world class sedan.
Around town and in the canyons, this 4400 pound vehicle feels flat out
It's also pretty fast, 0-60 in 5.2 seconds will get your attention and the
immensely capable all wheel drive system, huge brakes and fantastic
suspension will keep it.
I'll go on record for loving the eco-Boost engine platform. The 3.5L Twin turbo V6 is only mildly laggy at the low end but
more than makes up for that once it starts to rev. The practical side is
that you could use all 365 horsepower in this car and
still manage fuel mileage in the mid 20's and then on the highway settle in
at about 30 MPG.
Would I own one, heck yes...as long as it had that ESC button in the center
console to disable the stability management systems so that I could four
wheel drift the tires off the thing.

http://www.Facebook.com/2Redline The current generation SHO is still the
stop light sleeper it always was. Those who remember the original may miss
its high revving Yamaha built engine and manual transmission. We think a
viable replacement for the SHO nameplate would be better served using the
current Fusion platform.

2015 Chrysler 300 vs Chevy Impala vs Ford Taurus Mashup Review in TFL4K
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2015 Chrysler 300 and Chevrolet Impala and
Ford Taurus Taurus are all classic big American 4-door sedans. But which
one of these old school rides is the best domestic sedan in the land. In
another classic TFLcar Mega Mashup review Roman drives all three cars back
to back to find out which one is the king of the hill.

Ford Taurus 3.0L 12v Head Gaskets Replacement Pt 1
This is the only full head gasket set I recommend-(check fitment guide)
Head Bolts- Two sets needed-(check fitment guide)
This is the Engine Sealant I recommend-
This is the best coolant to use when refilling-
This is the best Brake Cleaner to get all the residue off-
This video is finally done and out for your viewing pleasure, I had to
break it up into two parts. This should be the ultimate reference for this
job on a Ford Taurus and most detailed on the web. Hope this helps!
A video my son and I made with a 1990 Ford Taurus SHO. Shows the car, the
engine (hot) and some 0-60 runs. Total sleeper car. I added the wing and
the DOHC-24V badges (standard on the 92 and up). Replaced the SHO with a
CTS with a manual transmission. I like the CTS better, but the SHO was fun!
