Question about 1998 Ford Taurus
1998 Merc. Sable, 24Valve motor. At hiway speeds the o/d light flashes and does not shift into o/d or it flashes and the speedo does not responds(goes to 0). I know the car is in o/d when this occurs because I can down shift with the o/d cancel button and the rmps goes up. But on other occasions the rpm goes up and the cancel button has not been touched, rpms are running high. I had the tranny flushed and filled last year, about 10 000kms ago. Garage has had a quick look and said the fluid is already a bit brown. Car has 118 000kms and had been flushed and filled and filter changed at about 50 000kms and 108 000kms. Hope this is enough to go on.
Is this a electrical or mechanical problem? What is the solution?
Sounds like u have a bad vss (speed sensor ) its located on the transmission have some one drive the car with a scan tool and check the speed when it goes to zero the scant tool will also the computer thinks you stopped pretty easy fix located on the output side of the trans passanger side
