    Did you match the new pulleys with the old to make sure the diameter was the same, because they are two different 3.0 engine available for your taurus ( SOHC and DOHC ) single and dual overhead camshaft and they use different pulleys and tensioners and if they match up. And go to http://www.autozone.com/autozone/repairinfo/repairguide/repairGuideContent.jsp?partName=Engine+Mechanical&pageId=0900c152802380fe&partId=0900c152802380fe and double check your belt routing
