    They made a 3.0 flex-fuel motor in some 2000 Taurus models; but the VIN code was different than in the 3.0 Ranger flex-fuel motor. That means there are some significant tuning differences. Some of those differences may be in internal engine parts. Because of that, I would be very careful. The information you were given may be right; but the surest way to sort his out would be to contact an auto wrecker who has a parts interchange book. That book would list whether or not the engine parts are interchangeable.
