Can anyone tell me if the water pump on a 2008 Ford Taurus is connected to the timing chain or outside the motor?
Water pump has a sprocket and is driven by the timing chain, assuming duratec v6. It's a big job, if you have a high-mileage motor and timing chain hasn't been replaced it's prudent to combine the two jobs.
