  1. Maintenance and Repair
    Hello. My Taurus ran flawlessly for 6 months. 61k original garage kept miles. I don't drive it hard. It used to shift gears around 1500 rpm now it's shifting around 2500 rpm when in 2nd and 3rd. Not such a huge deal. The big issue is when deceleration is happening into 3rd or 2nd... Which...
  2. Maintenance and Repair
    No matter what gear im in I can't go past 2000-3000 rpms usually 2300rpms. Is my tranny just junk or is it something else? Torque converter. Or a fluid pump?
  3. Engine and Drivetrain
    So I’ve had my Taurus for almost 2 years now, have almost hit the 10k miles driven mark (I don’t drive much) and I’ve noticed that if it’s hot and the car is on for over 30 minutes, the car with jerk violently coming out of first or will get up to almost 6k RPM before finally shifting. I was...
  4. Maintenance and Repair
    I could use a bit of advice. My fiance's car started making a grinding sound last night when it's put in gear. There is no difference between drive and reverse, noise is not present in park or neutral, no clunking sound when placed in gear, transmission fluid has been checked (not changed, not...
  5. Maintenance and Repair
    TCCA gang, You all provided such great guidance for this mediocre DIY mechanic to diagnose and re0aor his PCM issue, I'm hoping you can help me figure out why the transmission doesn't fully engage when it's put into gear. There are no error codes, I know that because y'all help me get the ODB...
  6. Engine and Drivetrain
    I have a 1996 contour automatic v6 and a 2005 taurus. Transmission shot on the taurus and good in contour. Is it possible to swap them without a huge headache?
  7. Engine and Drivetrain
    I recently bought an 02 Taurus wagon SE with a slipping tranny. I’m down for the swap but I need to know what specifically I can use as a transmission replacement, all this ax4n and ax4s has me really confused.
  8. Engine and Drivetrain
    I picked up a 2000 Sable w/ 98k mi for my daughter and after many frustrating repairs to the engine I changed the transmission fluid and filter just to be safe. Everything was working before but now 90% of the time reverse does not full engage and slips severely. Fluid is right on the money. Any...
  9. Engine and Drivetrain
    Sticky, sticky subject. Bottom line: while cruising around 40 - 45, if I step on the accelerator the car seems to lose power - falters. I have to step on the accelerator to shift down in order to gain power. And, I've noticed the tach occasionally may increase 500 rpms momentarily, and go back...
  10. Engine and Drivetrain
    I have a 2001 Mercury Sable with 3.0l DOHC with 49k miles. (Grandma Special) I purchased it 16 months ago with 34,000 miles on it. At that point time I change the transmission fluid and filter. The vehicle has had service every three months ever since it was brand new. A few days ago I was...
  11. Maintenance and Repair
    Hi all, an old post on this forum helped me during my home mechanic attempt, so now I'm turning to you. My car (2005 Taurus SE sedan) experienced damage to the transmission oil pan (I'm not sure how). Apparently over the course of about a week, almost all the fluid was lost. The car would...
