Hi Ric, unfortunately the pump on a Duratec is behind the timing chains driven by the crankshaft. What's the symptoms and the mileage???

Re: oil pump location for 2000 FORD TAURUS 3.0L V6 DOHC

Hello R.S and "T":

OK....did a oil change on this thing about a month ago...the Oil light will come on and off around 55 miles a hour. At 70 mph...it will stay on solid...there is a small leak coming from the Pan...but it is not using any oil, or just a small amount...The RPm's are right in the normal range...the Oil looks clean, and the cam's look well oiled...could the Pick up tube be clogged or is there a Screen or filter in that pan??

One more thing>>>>How hard is it to drop that pan with out taking the "Y-pipe" off??? Can it be done???

Good Luck and good repairing Sterling_6

Re: oil pump location for 2000 FORD TAURUS 3.0L V6 DOHC

Never done one before but found this ,

" Ok
I've got a 2000 Duratec

Took off the pipe from the exhaust manifold only.
Carefully lowered the exhaust so not to rip off the O2 sensor wires.
(cut a block of wood to match the exact height to hold up the exhaust so not to rip the wires off)
Dropped the pan, put in a new seal and then jacked the pipe back up.
One man job. I did wrap the pipes with plastic 1st to keep them clean from any oil.
Soak those puppies overnight like everyone else did, to make it easy to drop the pipe the next day. "


Could be completely wrong here but not sure if it was that car where I read that it was the oil feed pipe and filter on base that was restricting clearance and stopping dropping oil pan but that you could get at the bolts with a flexible joint and socket , loosen them off and get enough movement and clearance to drop the sump .Again not sure but I think this was when the pickup pipe / filter was partially blocked causing oil problem .I've tried unsuccessfully to find the link , hence delay in replying .

Re: oil pump location for 2000 FORD TAURUS 3.0L V6 DOHC

Not sure if this applies to your year .

On 3.0L OHV engines, the oil pressure sensor is located on the left side of the engine block above the flywheel. On 3.0L DOHC engines the sensor is located on the left side of the engine block above the oil filter. On 3.4L DOHC engines the sensor is screwed into the oil filter adapter. The oil pressure sensor operates the oil pressure warning lamp.

....LOL I found it!!! Looking down from the front...look down to the left, where the A/C compressor is...it is up under the Manifold Exshaut by the Block...look at photo below...and it is going to be a bear to get a wrench on this thing...I have no idea how im going to get the Oil pressure gauge on it...

here's the link:
