Question about 1996 Ford Taurus

2 Answers

I have a 96 Ford Taurus GL (V6 3.0), with a trasmission problem.

When I have it in overdrive and take off, it works fine, shifts good and evything. But, when I stop it comes out of gear, then I put it back in neutral and back to overdrive and it is fine again until I stop, or I can down shift to regular drive(not overdrive) at about 20 or 30 mph and it will not mess up. However if I start off in regular drive, it will drive fine all day. Any ideas?

Sound a little like low fluid or plugged filter.Get a can of `Sea-Foam' T-R-ansmission treatment from Auto-Zone or somewhere and add it per directions and exercise the ****** immediatley per directions on the can.
it works in many cases.I'd THEN drain and refill with new fluid. don-ohio

    My car was doing that in overdrive but when i put it in drive it never did it. The overdrive went out so that may be your problem too

Try a trans fluss if that dosnt work then your bands on the trans or going bad. or if could be your computer is going bad but most likly you just have some junk in your fluid.

96 taurus ax4n tranny


You might need to replace the valve body clip with the upgraded (stronger) one. Ford had problems for a while with the clip breaking and not allowing the tranny to shift into O/D. I had the no O/D problem, I replaced the clip with the upgraded (stronger) one which fixed the problem.

I overfilled my transmission fluid on my 96 taurus gl, now it won't shift into gear. Did i blow the trasmission?


It is probable that you blew out the seals and will need your transmission repaired. You can try to slip a small hose down the dip stick tube and draw out the extra fluid, there is a slight chance that your transmission will work if you get the fluid level back down where it should be.

96 ford tuarus that has AX4N transmission wont shift out of first gear, how many shift solenoids are in this transmission and how hard are they to change


You may want to change the vehicle speed sensor first. Is your speedometer working? The shift solenoids are inside the side cover of the transmission and it's quite a job to get that cover off, you practically have to take the trans out of the car. Are you getting a "check engine" light there may be a code in the computer that will tell you what is going on. If one of those solenoids fail it should trigger a "check engine" light, the solenoids are usually pretty trouble free as a rule. I'm not sure on that transmission, but I think there are two shift solenoids, but there is also a "torque converter clutch solenoid". Also, if you can get it to a trany shop they can put a scan tool on your car and tell you exactly what's happening. Have you tried manually shifting the car? Pull it down into 1 then manually shift it up, see if it will shift that way.

1997 ford taurus 3.0 ltr trans wont shift into overdrive. first thrugh third gears shift fine but it doesnt try to shift into overdrive at all. the trans shows no signs of slipping and the fluid looks...


Solenoid pack in trans. Position module,is just that. Wrong guess. What tran model do you have? You also have other sensors to consider but have to know the trans your working on and the computer and shift stratagy involved to solve this,even if your throwing parts at it.
