Im new to this forum. I recently bought a 98 taurus sho, has 160 000kms. 3.4L v8. I bought it for $100 and the transmission has issues. I was told that the torque convertor needs to be replaced or something to that. I dont know to much at all about these cars. :dunno: I know the fluid looks burnt and dark like engine oil. Its an automatic transmission. Doesnt move what so ever. Was wondering what is the name of transmission or code so that i may try to locate a replacement one and the average cost of one as well. Or is there some internal part that can be changed. What other issues is the specific make and model of taurus prone to? Any type of help would be very useful and appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Have you recently changed the Filter and the fluid? Mine wouldnt go into any gear and i was about to sell it for cheap. Then something told me to change the filter and fluid. So i did it and sure enough it went into every single gear and it was driving again. I call my sable Lil Red
