Are you certain it is a head gasket failure? It is not entirely common with the 3.0L V6 in a Taurus. Especially the 12 Valve OHV version. I recommend contacting a local shop and making a relationship with them, where they can give you a (second) opinion on the engine issue. Here is a link to some local shops... http://repairpal.com/directory?address=19026&car_brand_names=Ford My thinking is that if you have a cylinder head leak on this car that there may be additional internal engine issues. Good luck.
