    Installation on the Ford Taurus is considerably easy compared to other mid-size cars. This application is known to have premature failure due to inevitable dousing with oil of the starter when removing the oil filter during routine service. I suspect that virtually all starters (cheap to expensive) will suffer this problem. That being said, due to the ease of installation and potential for failure, go with the lesser price option. The failure is gradual so you will have ample warning. I got about 26 months out of the last one, however I do change the oil every three months regardless.

            very nice build quality for the price, with a rear oil shield and pre-attached signal lead.

            The oil shield if on the old starter, may have saved the starter.
