My 92 Ford Taurus has had shifting probs for about 5yrs, but recently it wouldn't catch any gear to move forward, and severely "bucked" in reverse. Mechanic says it might be speed sensor,...


Some speed sensors will help the transmission know when to switch gears, but with some of the things you describe, sounds like after driving it that long, damage to the transmission has occured. Also, it could be a bad torque converter. There is also something called the transmission torque converter clutch solenoid, causes the car to buck and cut off. Hope this helps, any questions just contact me.

All of a sudden my car 1997 ford taurus wont shift into drive or reverse checked fluid level its ok what is the problem?


Is the fluid level high? Most of the time when you have a no pull condition it is a stripped pump shaft or the pump drive splines in the torque converter. Cold also be a stripped or broken axle ( will roll in park if this is the case) or a problem with the forward clutches or splines bad on lower planetary. So unless an axle is bad the transmission will need to come out to be repaired.

I need help finding where the transmission speed sensor is located on a 1997 Ford Taurus GL.


its located on the tranny directly below the intake manifold. i think its about $35 or $40 to get one at a parts store.it sticks out at about a 45 degree angle pointed towards the drivers seat. you may have to get on top of the car and reach your arms down until you find it. theres only one bolt holding it on if i remember correctly. 10mm? i think. if you take it off, its not gonna be fun trying to figure out where the bolt goes back without being able to see. hope this helps.

I cannot find the transmission speed sensor...help.thank you... 1997 ford taurus..v6 3.0


your looking for the turbine speed sensor a.k.a transmission speed sensor and not the vechile spees sensor correct? they are two different sensors! the transmission speed sensor is on the side of the transmission facing the side of the car around 11 o'clock in relation to the output shaft witch is where the cv axle goes in! if it is the vechile speed sensonr then it is on top of the transmission tail house for the other output shaft and the other cv goes too. if you follow the transmisssion dip stick down to the transmission it is in that area! good luck
