Is a transmission in an 86 Taurus and aslo in an 89 Sable electronically controlled? as for shift points?

if it is, is there a chip out there that can control the shoft points?

I believe they are, but do not quote me on that. I would contact AmericanMotorsport.com, They are very knowledgable of our cars and making chips for them. Everyone that has one as far as I know has been more than happy with the results.

Yeah, the first Gen tauruses had vacum controlled trannies I think. Gen 2 tauruses may have computer controlled trannies, though I think the car computer is ODB 1 not ODB 2 on them if it makes a different. Gen 3 and up is all computer controlled with ODB II computers.
