I am new to the site, so please excuse my "noobiness". I was recently given a 1995 Taurus Police Package for a really good price. The car does start and run, but the transmission is bad. The previous owner told me that this is the third one hes went thru on this car.
My questions are;
Does this car take a different transmission than the regular taurus? If so, would using the wrong one have caused it to go out 3 times?
How much should a rebuilt transmission cost? Are there any modifications that can be done to them to increase reliability?
Any recomendations in general for maintaining this car?
Thanks in advance,
