    Hey, if you need help you should at least be able to be a little more specific, I am assuming your are talking about your air conditioner compresser?

The a/c clutch should cycle on and off 4 to 7 times/miunte depending on air temperature. if it's cycling n & off several times/minute, you are probably low on R134a. Add a can to see if the cycling lessens. get a hose kit with a gauhe on it that tells you if you are getting overcharged.

My rpms

If I understand your problem correctly, you have a transmission problem. The Taurus/Sable platform has had several tranny related problems, especially from lack of fluid/filter changes at the required service frequency.

You may have a low level of Transmission fluid, or you could have a serious problem. Either way, continuing to operate your Taurus in this manner will cause expensive damage.

Please check your Transmission fluid level. If you see that it is low, be sure to use the proper type of fluid for your car.

If you do not have a low level, then you should take this Taurus to a trained mechanic, and have your transmission evalutated.

Good luck!
