1997 Ford Taurus running rough


My car needs new spark plus and spark plug wires, plus fuel filter and air filter. I went to a shop and they want to charge $378 for plugs and plug wires, and another $100 for fuel filter - air filter. Is there any way I can do this myself?


All of these things are pretty basic on a Taurus. Find a friend with some mechanical ability and block out some time on a Saturday morning. Check out the auto repair manual on Autozone.com for basic information on how to do the procedures. Shouldn’t take more than a couple of hours to do all this. You can probably do it all for less than $100 in parts.


Thanks so much! I’ll do that!


You may need to buy some tools. A torque wrench might be required.
