Re: 3.0 tune up. whats involved?
Do yourself a favor and stay away from snake oil. Snake oil is a product that provides no benefit to you. If you are lucky, it provides no detriment either, but don't hold your breath. E3 plugs fit that category. Snake oil products have a few things in common. They are really well designed for their purpose. Their purpose is to get you to part with your money. In order to do that, the advertising copy must compelling. Factual has nothing to do with it.
That said, the Ford shop manual for the 2010 Fusion 3.0 shows that the upper intake manifold must be removed to access the rear bank. It only mentions replacing the gaskets. Nothing about a basket.
