Remanufactured Ford 3.5-Liter Duratec Engine Launches

Sometimes you have a car you love all you really want to do is fix it and get it back on the road. Sadly, sometimes engine issues require a complete rebuild or even a new engine. For owners of some 2010 Ford cars and SUVs, a replacement remanufactured engine is now available.

The engine is the Ford 3.5-liter Duratec engine, and it comes from Jasper Engines & Transmissions. The Ford 3.5-liter Duratec engine is a non-turbo, single VVT that is meant for use in specific applications. The remanufactured engine will work on one-bolt oil filter applications for the 2007-2009 Edge, Fusion, Milan, MKX, and MKZ.

The same Ford 3.5-liter Duratec also works in the 2008-2009 Taurus, Taurus X, and Sable as well as the 2009 Flex. A version of the motor with a three-bolt oil filter adapter will work with the 2008-2009 Taurus X, 2009-2010 Taurus/Edge/Sable, the MKX, 2009-2011 Flex, and 2010 Fusion and MKZ.

This is the first engine available from Jasper in the Ford 3.5-liter/3.7-liter engine family. Jasper notes that the Ford 3.5-liter Duratec requires a unique cam boring process to ensure exact bore alignment, size, and surface finish. To make that possible, Jasper co-designed a coolant-fed CNC machine that meets the specifications needed for the engine platform.

The same special process will be used to remanufacture additional late-model engines that will be released in the near future. The engine is covered by a 3-year/100,000 mile warranty nationwide with transferable parts and labor warranty. Pricing on the remanufactured engine is unannounced, and it appears the engines are only sold through installers. Back in 2016, we talked about a Ford Flex that a teen drove into a lake when the steering locked up.

    My 2013 Ford Flex with a non turbo 3.5 v6 engine. I told my dealer service manager that I was seeing anti-freeze coolant on my pavement where my Flex was parked . The mechanic did a check up to find a leak and also did a pressure test and claimed they could not find a leak! The next week in the winter time the engine over heated really bad and stopped running. It was towed in a finally found a water pump leak ! The service manager told me that the water pump was inside the engine block and was really hard to diagnose. Now it is smelling again like anti-freeze and the anti -freeze was low again , now that it has been really hot out this summer. I think the engine block has a problem and been leaking anti-freeze all along. So does Ford have a rebuilt engine for my car?

      Did you read the article?
      1) This isn’t Ford.
      2) Jasper is planning more releases in the future.

      Did you or did you not have the water pump replaced? If you did, ask the shop that did the repair to check out the vehicle. Do not go by smell at all, you should have been constantly checking the oil for evidence that anti-freeze is getting into it.

      If you don’t have oil contamination, you may not need a whole new engine, could be one of various other things that can cause coolant loss such as hose leaking, head gasket, head warp or crack, radiator leaking, radiator cap leaking or improper weak pressure, thermostat housing leaking, even the overflow tank or hose going to it leaking if you are only going by the overflow tank coolant level.

      Granted, while some of the above problems are relatively inexpensive to repair, others can still exceed $1500, particularly if the work is done at the dealership shop with new parts opposed to used or remanufactured.

      Do not keep driving the vehicle if coolant is fouling the oil, making it look like a chocolate milkshake. Doing so can only make it worse.

    Just found my water pump needs replacement. Dealer estimate is 2700 to repair. Would it be more cost effective to replace the engine?

    I’ve replaced the water pump twice on my 2013 Ford Taurus and now the motor blew . I don’t have the money to fix it and done spent 3200 dollars in repairs now I’m out of car and really wanted this one.
