Did this video help you?

DeshonsChannel: Thank you. It helped a lot. 

Danny R: Nice!!!!

Ryan Perry: the engine is OHV not DOHC. the DOHC came in the taurus SHO

zombiechud916: That engine is filthy. My Taurus is 11 years older than yours and you can eat off the engine. I cant believe guys treat their cars like crap.

FreewayKingz: Well this help with fixing the (bank 2) system too lean problem?

Kyle Tissnolthtos: Was the spark plugs easy to replace I have the same exact car a 2002 Mercury Sable GS. You can write me back on Facebook.

Cassidy Starke: This method works great without having to remove anything. I didn't have the flex socket connector, so I used a small 1/4 inch drive ratchet with a 3/8 inch conversion tip connected to the spark plug socket. The smaller ratchet easily fit the space for the back plugs.

LoudProudNPunk1: I got one of these (2002 Taurus) in the shop the other day at school, and I couldn't help but think what an outdated piece of junk this engine was, even by 2002 standards. Of course it doesn't help that I'm so used to seeing Toyotas and Hondas from about the same time period, which are technologically and mechanically superior by leaps and bounds. No offense to any of you Ford owners out there.

Rubra Wolf: Thank you, this was quite helpful

Jonathan Altieri: Isn't that the OHV 3.0L Vulcan?

SparkysGarage: It wasnt very difficult at all actually... not a ton of room but you just need a swivel fitting.

SparkysGarage: Glad it helped man!

SparkysGarage: For some reason people don't believe me that you can reach the rear plugs through the spot I showed... I didn't have any trouble. Glad it helped out man.

SparkysGarage: Next time i will. Thanks

swicked01: thanks a million... I had the rear plugs changed in the same length of time that it would have required to just remove the intake.

pedro chavez: thanks for this video I was helpful

James Moore: keep doing videos on this taurus!! Its nice to have the info on stuff I can do myself :)

James Moore: I just did this same thing on the same car and it is so easy for the fronts and so freaking annoying with the backs it would almost be retarded trying to do a vid while in process...

bobd51758: So that's how you change the back 3 plugs , I thought it may be a lot tougher , and you might have to take that cover like piece off and out of the way , thanks my man , you saved me a lot of trouble !!!

Novuh: If it c reaches, does it matter what cord you use?

alltimecobrafan: keep on saying it badass

Junior Nelson: thanks for the video jlsparky7, i just bought a 2003 ford taurus from my son inlaw and i wanted to make sure his wiring was correct. Thanks!

jboydmv90: its actually pretty easy to remove that upper intake it takes about 10 min and its a lot easier to replace the back plugs with it removed!!!

ELVISRN1: great vid. ready to do the job. thanks rick.

firstcobra88: not a dohc, but still informative

cheekybastard99: If you got the rear plugs like that you are a wizzard

Robeto Parra: how do you calibrate the plugs?

SparkysGarage: No prob! glad it helped :)

SparkysGarage: It really was pretty simple, a lot of people are complaining that they aren't able to get to them without removing the intake. I had no troubles.

SparkysGarage: No

wafrederick: Replace the fuel filter during a tune up too,a must.You save a lot of money instead of an expensive fuel pump replacement since the fuel filter is a cheap item to change

Maxwell Steelhander: you shulda put motorcraft spark plugs in there. next time get motor craft part number sp500 if you have the 8th digit 2 in your vin.

SparkysGarage: Glad the vid helped

Michael Luscher: Thats not a DOHC engine, this is the pushrod 3.0 Vulcan 12 valve engine, the DOHC is the 3.0 Duratec 24 valve V6.

ShelbyRacer78: Yes it is

SparkysGarage: Buy a spark plug gap tool. Very simple to do.

SparkysGarage: Well this car was an Ex's, so unfortunately I will not be doing anymore vids on it. Sorry :(

SparkysGarage: Any high quality plug works fine in my opinion

James Moore: Yup I just replaced my spark plugs in my 2003 taurus after reading this exact post... I used a 6 inch extension and a swivel fitting and did them all!!! YAAAAY... it was sort of feeling around some but I got it... and next I'm gonna do the wires with your directional help this weekend when I get paid:) thanks...

SparkysGarage: Glad I could help. Thanks.

Kayroseky: it would be better if you showed the procedure, but it ok thanks anyaway

craze1701: I'm going to do a tune up on mine soon, someone has Bosche plugs in and they make the car shake slightly while cruising. Thanks for the information on this, I had a 92 Corsica that was about as difficult with the rear plugs.
