1992 Ford Taurus Transmission Issue
Hello, I have an issue with the transmission on my 1992 Ford Taurus sedan. It started after driving about 150 miles straight from central to western Washington. When I was about 3 miles from my destination the car came to a jerky/bumpy stop, and then wouldn't accelerate normally. I gave it some gas and it took a few seconds for it to engage and jerk forward.
I pulled up to the hotel and parked the car. Then I started the car and shifted through P, R, N, O, D. In P and N, the car makes a rattling type noise. I drove the car to a repair shop and it was very difficult to get it to start moving from a stop. The car would either not move at all until I restarted the engine, or have delayed/jerky acceleration. One time I was stop on the way, the car died and I had to restart the engine.
So my question for you guys is, what do you think the issue could be? Since I'm about 150 miles from home, I want to get this fixed for as little money as possible, and I definitely don't want it to break down on my way back. Any help/suggestions are appreciated, let me know if you need more information.
Transmission issue, car makes strange noise in park and neutral. Sometimes won't accelerate at all, sometimes is jerky when accelerating from a stop. Seems to work fine in higher gears. Please help.
