    Same thing just happened to me today. Was driving and as I approached a stop sign noticed the rpm were working but the speedometer was not slowing down, I shifted it into neutral and coasted into a parking lot. Came to a complete stop and put into park. Popped open the hood of the car and did not notice any fluid leaks, smoke or noise. Wouldnt there be noise if the transmission stopped working?? Now its in my drive way with no clue of whats wrong.?

Sound like you need a new trany I would recommend junk yard for cheaper trany cause it would cost more to rebuild.

Slipping transmission

The only fix for that, is to rebuild it

When you changed the fluid, it most likely
slipped worse,whether you were aware of it or not,at the time.

I have a 1996 ford taurus. when i stop it does not go back into gear until i press on the gas. when it runs it runs fine

Check the transmission fluid level.

Do this by turning on vehicle, shift through all gears 2x, then leave in neutral.

Pull the transmission dipstick out, clean it off, insert transmission dipstick and pull out again.

The fluid should be in the crosshatched area.

If it is low you will need to add ATF fluid in the dipstick hole.

Car won't go unless in low gear; have to put it in low gear and eventually it will go in drive.

I had that same problem on my ford taurus, I changed the transmission fluid and it was fine, the vehicle takes if i remember correctly 13 quarts of transmission fluid, most cars only take five so definitly check that, hope i could help, good luck!

When im driving and i reach 20mph it jerks when it changes gears. what do u think the problem is

Check the fluid level in the transmission. You may be "running out" of fluid needed to shift to second.
You can try changing the transmission fluid and adding a small amount of Lucas transmission additive it may help a balky solenoid. Fords don't have a filter for you to change, but do offer a add-on type on the line to the radiator.

Driving down freeway and transmission stopped working and coasted to a stop. When you put it in gear it won't move at all.

I would check the fuild level, you may need to change the fluid and filter, either that or the transmission is bad.

Started to take off from a stop and the car just quit pulling. The motor is running fine, the car just will not move when put in gear.

First thing is to check the transmission fluid. Check the level and see if it is dark or smells burned. If the level is fine, but the fluid is in bad shape, you'll need at least a fluid change. If the level is low, adding some might fix it, but you'll want to keep an eye on the level, in case you have a leak somewhere.
