Asked by Jan 17, 2013 at 02:05 PM about the 2006 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Dealer quotes 3,800 - 5,400 for rebuilt or remanufactured engine.
2006 SE.  I suddenly started missing.  I lost 1 cylinder with 2 others misfiring--no trouble before this except warning light to check charging system.

A 2006 should last longer than this, 7 years, unless you racked up unreal miles, but with proper maintainence it sure seems quick to need an engine. First advice: stay away from dealers. The will hit you for double of what a reputable shop will charge

Anyway, if you do this, go with a crate engine, buy it yourself and take it to a shop, A known shop, not necessarily a chain, just a shop that has been in business a while

For the V6 3.8 plan on paying about $1400 long block (with heads)

Thanks to all 3 folks. all answers very helpful. What about the continuos "check charging system" light that comes on and keeps coming on sometimes after car engine is warmed up? I noticed windows were slower than usual once and some for wipers. strange? COmputer problem? Elec system problem?

Thanks again to the 3 guys. most helpful so marked b/c i get a realistic $$ for used engine. the other 2 are very helpful, too, re: longevity of a 2006 and re: the crate engine.

even though I'm only one guy, but that's cool. good luck brw
