can I put the alternator from a 96 ford taurus in to a 97 ford taurus? Are any parts interchangeable on different ford taurus’s?
You might check rockauto.com, see if the same part is listed for both.
Most salvage yards have the ability to check on parts interchangeability between models…
You can also use autozone.com, or the O’Reillys on-line site. Get the part numbers for both years, and see if they’re the same. You don’t have to leave your chair for that.
