Question about 2004 Ford Taurus
Gear selector will move into all gears but wont engage. Car will roll like its in neutral all the time. With car not running I took note of the transmission fluid level, With car started the fluid went down about 1/2 inch. Fluid is dirty but not gritty.
Do you feel any resistance in the gear selector when shifted through gears?

first check drive axels , since you replaced front springs on struts i assume. it is possible that one of the axels popped out. next if thats ok check fluid level in trans with eng OFF should show over full make a srcribe mark on the stick. then START the eng it should go down to full or just below depends if trans is full or a little low . if level does not drop approx.1/2 in or so then have a transmission shop check for bad splines in torque convertor, that is a comon problem in that car, year and milage do not play a roll a large roll in parts failure in trans any more. not like it use-to.

Sorry to say i had the same problem. the spline between the engine and the trans sheared. I complained to Ford customer service and they were able to help with the cost but it still cost about 1500

then the transmission has failed or has sticking engagement solenoid in trans pan, have the fluid and filter replaced and see if that corrects the problem

Sounds like the clutch is on its way out or needs adjustment. If you've noticed a burning smell when shifting just prior to your problem, this is a good indication of a failing clutch. If no burning is present, it may be that the clutch pedal needs adjustment.

shifter needs to be inspected. The shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has
to be open and realign.
are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and
suddenly this occurred then its shifter
assembly alignment issue.
