Hello All! The transmission in my 97 Taurus slips intermittently. It will be operating normally and suddenly let go. The engine will rev but the tranny won't pull. It will maintain a very low speed, and occasionally grab, but basically acts like the car's in neutral. If I let it cool down or sit, it will function normally for a few weeks and then do this again.
Someone has suggested to me that the Transmission Speed Sensor needs to be replaced as this is exactly what happened to their Taurus. My question is, where is this thing located on the vehicle? Has anyone replaced one before? Thanks for the help and the ideas.....The ford dealer has one supposedly in stock so I'm thinking I am going to go get it!
That would be my first guess, with TPS
being the second. Use the search for more information.
Welcome to the club!
Oh, and make sure to get your camshafts welded...now...if they haven't been already.
Thanks!!! My question now is whether its the Turbine Speed Sensor or would it more likely be the VSS
(vehicle speed sensor) I've been told it probably isn't the VSS
as the speedo, cruise control, and tranny shifts are working good.....well, except for when I get false neutrals.
And yes, cams are welded! Thanks!
