Hey guys, I got a new TRS on the way, and A couple new Shift Solenoids which I have a Question about.


Problem #1: Puddles appearing overnight
-Fluid Level is Ok
-Never Decreases
--My guess is its Overfilled?
--Any way I can check the other sites for leaks without dropping the Subframe and transmission?

Problem #2
-P0760 Solenoid C Malfunction-----------------------|
-P0761 Solenoid C Performance or Stuck OFF---|-------------------These codes appear intermittently and disappear on their own accord.
-P0762 Solenoid C Stuck ON-------------------------|
--My Guess is it could be the TRS sending the wrong signal (since the TRS is bad.) or is this solenoid going out too?
--Slams into 3rd Gear with a chuck into second only in acceleration
--I dumped a bottle of TransTune into it, result was less slamming but still a rough shift.
--Which Solenoid is this? and is this a "Shift" solenoid or a "Locking" Solenoid??
--Pictures & Diagrams please? TIA!

Problem #3
-TRS is being Ordered
-Whats the tool I will need??
-No way in hell I'm letting the stealership screw this car up more for 300 bucks.

Specs:
1996 Ford Taurus GL
3.0L OHV V6 Vulcan
AX4N Transmission

quick update: My trans temperature hit 280+ today. I think thats BAD.

I'm definately getting a transcooler now. Especially when ATF Breaks down at over 250.

I'd recommend EVERYONE get a transcooler after All I was doing was highway driving.

The running hot is causing the fluid to come out the vent.

Is the TC locking up? How long has the fluid been in the tranny?

You don't need any tools to align the TRS.

Well the TC is locking up normally whenever the TRS decides to send the correct signal. :glare:

Fluid is fresh changed it new years day.

Ok, I heard that there was a tool you needed to align the TRS. Sweet!

Thanks guys!
