I went to the Topic Finder and looked up 'belt routing'.

One of the links was to Gates Online Catelog

Then choose part lookup, and filled in all the required fields for your 2000 taurus. There are two belts types, one for the 3.0 OHV and DOHC. Chose the pic and this is what you get:

A easy way to "figure out" is to match the face of the belt to the face of the pulley. Some pulleys have groved surface. So that must go with the groved side of the belt. The tensioner pulleys have smooth surface so it goes with the opposite side. Doing this typically helps me figure out the U -code taurus belt routing...

I either have to draw a picture or pull up the diagram from the manual everytime.
