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

      Comments about Driveworks Starter - Remanufactured:

      The reviews and videos have all stated the location of the starter is a poor design but an easy install. It is right below the oil filter and oil pours onto starter with every oil change. I found plenty of oil on frame and on starter. This leads to starter failure.
      This was my first time replacing a starter, and it is very easy for this vehicle, 2006 Ford Taurus. The dealership wanted 3 times as much for replacing starter with a brand new one. I paid online and picked up at store. I replaced in 90 minutes(including cleanup). If you can change the oil you can do this.
      The starter has been working for 4 days wonderfully. This also has a rubber boot to cover the end to "hopefully" keep oil out of the starter motor.
      I recommend this job to anyone, mechanic or not, just disconnect battery cable first.

                      Comments about Driveworks Starter - Remanufactured:

                      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.
