Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 41500 miles
Seems like this is a really common problem for the Taurus from what I'm finding online.
My Taurus just started having this "miss" issue and I took it to my local dealer. They want $800 and say it needs at least new plugs and plug wires and an injector cleaning. I told them to go to hell.
So. How do I do this myself? Apparently, part of the cost is due to the fact you have to remove the intake manifold to get to the plugs on the back side.
First, do you think this is the whole problem? Can you tell me how to get the intake manifold off so that I can replace the plugs and wires? Any special tips or tricks that I need to know about? I've worked on boat engines before but not alot with cars. I can spin a wrench, so it can't be too tuff. Right?
thanks for your help!
have the same problem?
