RzVids: You don't replace anything that should be replaced since you're in the engine now, like the timing belt?
James Evans: helping me now
computerrebooter: Hey that helicopter is the mechanic police, don't you know you're supposed to pay them $2500 to do this?! From one do it yourselfer to another, thanks and great job with the video. And as far as the arm chair quarterbacks in some of the comments below, screw them! I have done videos as well, some people don't realize the time it takes to do these videos with the editing and everything, but we do them because we genuinely want to help. Keep up the good work. P.S. Thanks for NOT putting in music, I watch these videos to be informed not entertained, but hey that's just me.
Mecanica Facil: when clean the engine block dirt fell into the oil carter, greetings from caracas
wojtek0000: Why. Just take it to the junkyard. It's a Ford Taurus, POS!
William Jones: Great job on the video. First time I've see a time laps on a job that big. Not an easy job or one I probably would have tackled on such an old vehicle. But if you've never replaced a head gasket I guess it was a perfect car to learn on. I probably would have done the chemical flush first and I would have had the heads resurfaced. But that's just me. Lots of labor involved just to learn later that a head was warped and you have to do it all over again. You've heard the old adage, "Never enough time to do a job right but always enough time to do a job over"...... Thanks for the video..
johnny rage: normally I don't comment underneath the circumstance but there are some serious flaws with this video in particular as far as not being able to remove the brackets it is highly inconceivable that anybody could mess that up and I know this because I have a 1990 Ford Aerostar that uses a 3.0 almost identical one shown in the video and the person who did this video is clearly unaware of the names of parts or materials and I think a little bit of retraining should be in order before the next video is made
SuggestiveSquirrels: I just had a look at my sisters car 95 Ford taurus. ..it had a crank no start condition. I suspected a blown head gasket. So I checked the oil....it was brown and sludgy. I drained the oil and the first gallon that came out was antifreeze. It's even in the exhaust system. ...uuggghhh!
Rosana Maita: megustael video
captbehnen: that car is pure junk. you should have junked it and moved on to another one.
rbeez2004: they had a coolant leak and ran pure water in it I stead of antifreeze. it rotted the inside of the block and head gaskets and that's why it blew.
WENDL Ormsby: He forgot one important step which is an easy one; Always, always mark any belt that you have to take off, on any engine, with an arrow showing which way it was traveling around the pulleys before you take it off, and save yourself some grief down the road.
marieh1211: Hey Russ I have a 2000 ford taurus 3.0L flex fuel vehicle V6 and wanted to know if you had any trouble from the oil light coming on once you replaced the lower intake manifold with the felpro gaskets? Any help would be awesome!!
Timothy DeVoll: thanks for the vid. I'm doing the same job this weekend.
mario agostini: Can you give me a favor? can you measure the auto transmission's dipstick length?,, and from the bottom end up until the low line... and the distance between low and high line... I lost my dipstick last year in Toronto to lube oil changer guy... He did not put it back...
Michael Pettis: How long did this take you do all this? I have to do the exact same thing with my wife's 2001 Ford Taurus and was curious how long it will take.
Rodrigo Guimaraes: good job then!
Rodrigo Guimaraes: This engine is done. The cooling system is entirely blocked by the rusty antifreeze
Daniel Lee: Hello, I was wondering if this is a interference engine?
Jimmy Bazen: I just did this on almost the exact same Taurus. I have a crank no start condition. Any ideas anyone?
