Ford Taurus 3.0L 12v Timing Cover Coolant Leak Repair
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.

Well... i got to find out first hand, and you get to watch and enjoy!
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
to help others.
This would have cost me between $1200-$1600 as a local shop. depending on
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...
lets hope it lasts...

God bless and have fun!
Some time life throws you curve balls... for me i swing hoping to hit it

PS. Thanks Rawbush for getting me the correct specs for all the bolts!!!!

Turbo'd 90 SHO vs turbo'd SHO powered buggy
Friendly drag race at Speed World on 10-18-08, between a recently turbocharged 1990 SHO and me in my dune buggy. I
call the buggy "The Other Woman" and you might have seen my YouTube videos
of her with the Eaton blower on her at the sand drags at Gordon's Well in
At this race, the 90 kept up with me the entire way which is very
surprising when you consider that he's carrying at least a 1000 pounds more
than the buggy.
