Head Gasket 2001 Taurus - Flex Fuel

Has anyone had problems with a head gasket leak on a 2001 3.0L at cylinder #4?

What size Torx are the intake manifold bolts, they look like a T-50.

I had done it on mine,.. I had bought a set from auto zone, which included 5 or six of those hex, star types.. I think it was t-45 or t50. couple fitted real good. I wonder if you had started the job yet.. if it's cyl. 4,.. it's the front one. well.. little easier to work on, but still there's few things that can be time consuming..anyways,.. it's not that hard of a job.. any problems so far..??

The job went exceptionally well. V-6 2-valves per cylinder, Head gaskets, intake gaskets, timing chain cover gasket, water pump gasket, new head bolts, spark plugs, a/c compressor clutch assy, antifreeze . About $250.00 in parts.

Runs great, no leaks, but other problems. I'm starting a new thread.
