Taurus 1997 no overdrive

Hi, I need help: My 1997 Taurus at the road showed 3000 RPM at 50 mph. No overdrive. Changed to second shift and car goes smoother. Back to D enbgine gasps, no acceleration, RPM goes up and down and converter disingages. Had to change to 2 speed to complete travel. Any attempt to change to D and accelerate, engine immediately hesitates and shuts off. Any ideas? Many thanks.

Need a good code scan to see if any trans. codes are stored. That is step one on todays cars, without code info it's a wild guess on any make of vehicle.

Given your recent wiring issue (noted in your other thread) have you checked the wiring and fuse(s)? VSS input/output?

It's SHO time!

I replaced TPS no change occurred. There is no codes recorded on OBDII Scan.
When I start the car and shift lever to Overdrive (D) and accelerate, transmission doesn´t change to 2ns speed, engine fails, gasps, though RPM goes up roughly. Looks like lack of fuel. Then I shift to 2nd speed position and transmission shifts OK from 1st to 2ns speed. Back to D, and, there we go:engine fails agains. But when engine warms up a bit, problem goes away and driving in D speed, transmission shifts from 1st to 2nd and to 3rd all right.
Any guess or shall I hire a voodoo master to check this gohstly stuff?
