1997 Mercury Sable 3.0 from North America
Well let's see, my husband just replaced the head gasket, intake gasket, spark plugs and wires, and now there is water in my oil and the car still runs just as crappy as it did before. Acts like it is missing out, just replaced the engine last year. Any ideas?
It is a junk pile, money pit.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The Ford 3.0 V6 is one of the most durable and problem free engines out there. I have purchased over one hundred of these engines, and have not had one intake or head gasket failure. Not sure why you're having problems, but it is not the 3.0.

You can't just replace a head gasket when you blow a head gasket... that's assuming it was just the gasket to begin with.
