    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.

                Hey, it works. Nothing special, but a nice package anyway. Comes with an extra lead to splice into the solenoid feed and a rubber end seal to help keep oil off it when changing the filter. Lets face it, Ford has a very poor design here. Right next to the front converter (up to 1600 degrees) and right below the oil filter. I doubt ANY starter is going to hold up for a long time here. 04 Taurus, 60,000 miles, and this is the third starter. Original lasted approx 40,000. Ford reman approx 20,000

                Easy to install. The replacement wire they give you is a pain if you don't need it. Went on easy and worked. What more can you ask?
