2000 Sable 3.0L DOHC blown upper intake

Post by Nburkhart17 » Sun Jul 16, 2017 4:32 pm

Hey guys I inherited a 2000 sable 3.0 dohc from my sister in law, her meth head bf didn't realize the fuel pump went out, loaded up the intake with ether and blew it into a puzzle. I glued it all back together to get it running and to make sure the engine didn't have any further damage. It runs but has leaks everywhere, I need a new one, what year range can I use? I see tons for '01 and newer and they look similar. Any help,would be great.

I'm not sure just off-hand but definitely buy a new one. The Ford part will be of better quality than Dorman and the like. If I was you, I'd look up parts/year compatibility at RockAuto.

Hmmm you're right. Check https://www.fordparts.com or https://www.tascaparts.com or similar then... put in your VIN to do the lookup.
