Hey, a friend of mine and I have been looking all around, and no one knows what we're talking about. My mom drives a 97 Mercury Sable. It has this engine:
It'* a Ford Duratec 3.0L V6, also known as the Mazda AJ. All the repair manuals from the auto parts places around here show the Sable as having a 3.8L pushrod engine, and that'* the one that was replaced after 96 by the one we have.
You can see how because of the intake manifold, we can't get to the rear plugs. I took off the manifold, and now that the spark plugs are replaced, we can't find the order by which the screws go back as well as the torque ratings for each one. We want to do this right, but we can't find anything on this. I'm going to continue looking, but I'm asking for your guys' help in case someone already knows or actually also owns this engine. Thanks!
