Question about 1992 Ford Taurus
Yesterday my taurus shifted a little funny on take off. Shifted thru 1st and 2nd ok but would not shift into higher gears. Just changed the fuel filter(which should not have affected anything). We just bought about a month ago and had the whole car gone over. We were going to have the transmission flushed(its at 94,000) but was told the oil looked burnt, so they suggested not flushing as it might disloge something. Now it is not shifiting into the higher gears. Do you think that changing the oil and backflushing might capture some of the particles? or cause more damage. Changing tranny is next option. Which is fine, I just have to locate one.
Hi, from your description, it sounds as though you have a valve body problem in the transmission. Burnt fluid could possibility mean deterioration of the clutch packs, which would shed material and then that material would be lodged in the super fine clearances of the valve body.
I would bet that is the oil pan of the transmission were removed, one would find a lot of foreign debris, indicating the demise of the transmission.
If you would like to correspond further with me on this or any other issue, please feel free to do so.
