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.

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...

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:
2011 Ford Taurus SHO Twin Turbo - HD
Will the new Twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost™ V6 play catch-up or
catch-me-if-you-can to their V8
When Ford announced its all-new 2010 Taurus SHO as a new-generation premium
performance sedan, we took it to mean the term literally. So what better
yardstick to measure Ford's claim than a current premium performance sedan
with a proven record, the 2009 Infiniti G37 Journey?
The twin-turbo Taurus wouldn't have it
easy, seeing how the Infiniti G35 sedan had dethroned the BMW 335i sedan in
our five-car comparison last year. More recently a G37 devoured Acura's
high-tech TL SH-AWD without so much as a by-your-leave in a head-to-head
But perhaps the reanimated Super High Output (SHO) Taurus will once again
have a few sleeper sedan tricks for the establishment.

The foundation of the new 2010 Taurus SHO is a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 engine. This advanced powerplant
generates an estimated 365 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and
350 ft.-lbs. of torque at 3,500 rpm, resulting in significantly improved
power, torque and fuel economy compared with larger, normally aspirated
engines. This also is Ford's most powerful EcoBoost engine.
A key feature of this EcoBoost
engine is gasoline direct injection. The direct injection of fuel into the
cylinder during the intake stroke, as opposed to port-style injection to an
externally mounted intake, produces a well-mixed air-fuel charge. Fuel
vaporization during the intake stroke cools the incoming air, improving
volumetric efficiency and lowers the likelihood of knock.
The results are improved throttle response, reduced cold start emissions
characteristics and improved fuel economy. The cooled charge enables an
increased compression ratio, improving efficiency at partial load, while
the higher compression ratio allows for better volumetric efficiency under
full load engine behavior. Customers will experience normally aspirated V-8
power, without compromising V-6 fuel economy.
The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 also uses
twin turbochargers, as opposed to a
single unit. The reduced size of each turbocharger results in reduced internal inertia,
allowing this advanced engine to avoid the "turbo lag" often prevalent in earlier-generation
turbocharged applications. From the
driver's seat, the rewarding result is linear power delivery across a broad
torque band from 1,500 through 5,500 rpm. Peak torque building quickly off
idle ensures responsive acceleration from a standing start.
NO HEAT: Ford Taurus Heater Core Removal
A very common issue on the 12v OHV engines. No or low heat in the winter is
no fun. Follow my video series to fix it yourself and fix it right!
Before replacing the heater core follow my flush procedure so we don't clog

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.
