Great write up! Shouldn't this be in the "Solutions to Common Problems/How to" articles? I realize this is not the most common probem, but it is an excellent "How to" article.

My ride: Bonestock 2003 6.0 Powerstoke Turbo diesel, 4wd, Auto, 4.10 LS.

My wife's ride: Still bonestock 96 Taurus LX, 3.0 Duratec DOHC, AX4N auto, 6 CD changer in the trunk, electronic climate control, 188K on the clock.

Did this job a few weeks ago. It went very well thanks to your detailed instructions. I'll add two items that may help.

1) The two studs holding the engine mount frame have a hex in the end. Remove the studs and manipulating the frame will be MUCH easier, both in removal and installation.

2) If this is your own vehicle, you can take a shortcut so you don't have to loosen the main front cross member at all. The engine mount frame has two gussets that strengthen the pad that sits on the engine mount. One of the gussets is squared off while the other is angled at approximately 45 degrees. Since it's the squared off gusset that interferes during removal I took a grinder and cut off the top corner that was causing problems. I can't think of any reason why this gusset would be squared off as the strength of an angled gusset should be quite sufficient. The square gusset can be seen in the photo of the engine mount.

My problem was with a loss of 4th gear where retaining clip (~$5.00) broke in the valve body and was easy enough to replace. Now that I've done this once I'd estimate that it would only take about 4 hours to do the whole job thanks to your instructions.

I have a '95 Taurus that is very slow about shifting back into lst
gear. The motor revs until it decises to re-engage. Everytime I stops
the same problem with re-starting in lst gear occurs. Got any idea
what my problem is? Thanks!
