Re: replacing a transmission
The best idea here would be to goto your auto parts store and buy a Haynes or Chiltons Manual for your car. It will give you all the procedures and tools. This is not an easy task by any means at all. If the transmission shops are cheap enough I would highly consider getting it done there, but if you got the time and the patience then I would get the Manual from the auto parts store and go from there. Hope this gives you some insight. Thanks for using FixYa!

Look for the red dip stick the yellow is always engine oil the red is the transmission don't mix them up . You can add transmission fluid down this tube. However if your haveing shifting problems look at the color of the existing oil and smell it . It shouldn't smell burnt and should be red in color if it is you may need to have the flushed and serviced to keep it from dieing on you . Its a lot cheaper them replaceing the trany
The transmissions are my pet peave. But I do like the
3.0 v6 just don't overheat it. I have replaced a few steering racks. but not on mine, and I've had 3 of
them. And for the right price I would buy another one. Hope this helps. Good luck.
I owned a 95 Taurus for several years and done my own maint. I never heard of an external oil pump. The pump is in the oil pan and runs off the cam shaft. To replace it you have to pull the oil pan. After that it is fairly easy. Take out the bolts and it will come out. There are no springs to worry about.If you were talking about some other pump let me know.
