Transmisssion in a 1996 ford tarus

We were going down the road, stop at a stop sign, went to go and the car would not move. have never had problems. pulled the pan off the
transmission, did not see any metal in the fluid. pulled the filter and it was pretty nasty. Could that be it, or is there a sensor?

The AX4S equiped was never known for its reliabilty, I'm guessing you have around 120,000 miles on it?
The main problem areas with that transaxle was shift valves, and torque converters. Not cheap either, a Ford Factory Remanufactured transaxle will run $2,000, and almost another $1,000 for labor, but a good one can be had for less, but remember, new doesn't mean good, and good doesn't mean new.

You can probably go to a junkyard, and steal the tumbler out of another cars ignition, just make sure that you have the set of keys to go with it. As well, if your ignition key is for your locks as well, make sure that you take those tumblers out of the door because you'll need those as well.

Number one cause is a worn out heater core. However, the blender switch from cold to warm may not be switching the vents from cold to warm. Then vent doors can get stuck or the actuators that move the blender vent doors can become faulty. The worst part is accessing them. They are in the venting behind up and under the console

will it re-start right back up?
next time try to keep your foot on the gas pedal to see if it stay running ( be careful when you do this, if you give too much gas the car will over come the brake and cause accident )
if it stay running then you need to replace an idle air control valve

The car when hot or cold may stumble and/or die at a stop sign and it may also do it going 70 mph down the road. It will catch itself and start running.


This may be the early sign of a blown head or gasket. Check your coolant to make sure it doesn't have oil in it or appear to be oily. This is the first thing that I would check.
