Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
Does 'detailed' application exclude or include '97 GL V6 3.0L OHV vin U?
March 21, 2017
For the 1997 model, you would need either the 8th VIN digit 1, or the 8th VIN digit 2. The 8th VIN digit U will require a separate part.
March 22, 2017
can this replace a Ford Taurus 2000 with 8th digit of VIN U?
June 20, 2017
No, this is specific to the 8th VIN digit 2. Please view https://www.1aauto.com/search?q=fuel+pump&year=2000&model=257 and look for the listings excluding flex fuel for appropriate replacements.
