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.

in the year...

2013 Ford Taurus SHO Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, Test Drive
Help us grow so we can bring you more videos! Like us on Facebook @
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.

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...

2010 SHO vs 2010 Camaro SS
In Luskville, west of Ottawa, Canada. Second portion of 1/4 mile was in
bad shape, very bumpy! The trap speed are slower by about 2mph because of
I started late R/T of .349 for SHO and .03 for the SS :
SHO = 12.74 at 108mph (intake, Exhaust, suspension and tune LMS stage 4+)
SS = 12.85 at 110mph (intake and tune)
We ran all day together and I was consistent with my 12,7's, but he ran
anywhere between 12.76 and 13.85, depending on his launch. On that race,
he had a good launch.... As for the SHO, it is AWD,so no excuses. : )
