The 2001-2004 Escape/Tribute 3.0L should fit your 2001. I don't know about the Taurus 3.0L off-hand.

Ford changed the 3.0L engine mounts and electrical system for 2005 and newer E/M/Ts.

The taurus 2.5 and 3.0 does have different brackets in a few places. In the Taurus and Contour website they talk about needing to swap brackets around when doing a 3.0 upgrade if the engine came from an escape so safe to say it goes both ways.

taurus 2.5? I dont ever remember a taurus having a 2.5.

Well since its a different chassis there could definitely be different mounting points. The engine is the same but on the escape I think they have a plastic intake manifold...so there were revisions to the motor.
