1995 Taurus

Would anyone have information about the head gaskets on a 95 Taurus. It is my understanding that they were recalled sometime ago, but I am curious to any information that anyone can provide.

What size is your motor?
Most of the problems were with the 3.8.
I think the recalls were for repairs done sometime ago.
Call your local Ford dealer,

i've had them replaced on 2 tauruses, my 1991 at 101k and my 1995 at 35k. there is a new ford kit with head bolts that are different - dont stretch until the bolts reach yield. and there is a new head gasket they have. if you don't check the tech bulletin, the mechanic ends up putting on the old stuff and i think the new is supposed to be better.

i didnt have it done at a ford dealer. the 1991 cost $950, but the 1995 cost $850, but i bought a used car warranty when i got the new one, so i only spent about $200.

there is no recall, so you need to check the bulletin. been there twice. i still love the 3.8 engine better than the 3.0, so thats the cost of getting it.

Thanks for the replys. It is a 3.8. I have since found out theat the recall was a "silent" one. I have just been notified that when the head gasket blew it dimpled the block, so it now needs a new engine. I did find out about the Ford kit, but that will have to be replaced on the next engine. Yes, I will be contacting Ford. I can see a car with 100K, but 65? I can only imagine how upset you can get at 35K!
