Default 2000 taurus 3.0l 24v engine diagram

I was hoping that someone out there may have a diagram of a 3.0L 24 valve duratec engine.

Thermostat — 3.0L 4V
Removal and Installation

Drain the engine cooling system.
Disconnect the lower radiator hose from the water outlet adapter.

Remove the bolts, the water outlet adapter and thermostat.
Remove and discard the O-ring seal.

(Second thumbnail here)

To install, reverse the removal procedure.
