Asked by Apr 09, 2017 at 07:11 PM about the 1999 Ford Taurus SE Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus station wagon SE
is it possible to change the engine with a 3.0
V6 Ford Taurus

1 Answer


Ford Taurus came with only two engines that year and they were both 3.0 liter V-6s and they were used in both the wagon and the sedan. One was the 12 valve Vulcan with overhead valves and pushrods. The other was the 24 valve Duratec with double overhead cams (DOHC). Your car being the SE model probably had the Vulcan and the SEL had the Duratec. The eighth digit of your VIN will confirm a match or mismatch. Don't attempt a mismatch. These engines each used different transmissions and you will also have a computer incompatibility nightmare. I hope this helps.
