I Have A1996 ford taurus Sho V-8,it Just Turned 80,000 Miles And Has Had All Regular Service And Now The Camshaft Gear Has Failed On The Camshaft And Damaged The engine!i Work At A ford Dealer And See This engine Failure Often. It Seems That This Is Common On The V-8 Sho engine Around 75,000-85,000 Miles And Sometimes There Is A Ticking Noise That Is Considered A Warning Sign Too Get Repairs But There Was Not Any Warning From My engine. I Have Done All Kinds Of Research And Found That There Are Lawsuits And Numerous Complaints And Blogs Devoted To This Exact Issue But I Don,t Have Any Information Available For Assistance On These Very Expensive Repairs That Are Definitely Due To A Design Flaw And I Have 18 ford Technicians That Are Factory Trained Too Back This Up!i Did Not Buy This Vehicle New So I Can,t Say It Was Never Abused But After Partially Disassembling The engine So Far It Is Clear That It Was Very Well Maintained And Cared For (it Looks Brand New Inside)there Is Zero Sludge And Cams And Followers Are Spotless. I Will Need To Pull The Rear Head And Send To Machine Shop For Exhaust Valve Replacement And Depending On How Much Damage Maybe Guides As Well. I Am Very Curious As Too How Many Of These engine Failures Are Always Only The Rear Head Exhaust Camshaft Because So Far All I Have Seen Is The Rear Exhaust Camshaft Gear Failure And That Is A F- In My Grade Book! *tr

engine Failure As A Result Of Camshaft Gear Spinning On Cam. During Normal Driving engine Stopped In Roadway,requiring Tow Off Roadway To Repair Shop For Diagnosis. The Auto Is A 1996 ford taurus Sho 3.4 V8 .after Studying This Problem I Find This Cam Failure Is A Known Problem To Many And Could Be Prevented By Welding The Cam Sprocket To The Camshaft. The Repair To This engine Is Very Expensive,and I Thought Nhsta Should Be Aware Of My Failure. *tr

96 taurus Sho V8 3.4l Camshaft Failure. I Have Kept My Car In Perfect Shape With Tune Up And All. It Is In Mint Condition And Has No Rust. I Have Nice Exhaust System Put On By A Mechanic And Also A Cold Air Intake Put On And A New Trans In July Now With Only 3000 Miles On It.. I Heard Ticking From Under The Hood Out Of No Where. I Don’t Beat On My Car And Have Read That It Doesn’t Matter Either Way If You Beat On It Or Not The Cam Failure Can Still Happen. So I Heard The Ticking So I Drove It Home From Work To Park It Because I Figured It Was The Cams. So I Was Going To Get It Welded The Next Day And 5 Min From My House The Car Shut Off And So I Pulled The Valve Covers And Sure Enough It Was The Back Cam Near The Fire Wall That Had Slipped. I Don’t Think Its Right That Anyone Should Have To Deal With This Especially When The Car Is Well Maintained And In Such Great Condition. Also Don’t Think Its Right That Us Consumers Should Have To Pay For This Because ford Didn’t Want To Do Anything About It To Fix The Problem Now Im Out Of A Car. I Want Action Done About This. *tr
