Its in the timing ...whenever you start it it sits and idles fine but when you go to put it in gear it dies...the timing needs to be repaired. its a guaranteed solution.

My Taurus stalls as soon as I shift into drive


Could be , just old and tired engine. Could be transmission problems. Either way you can get a newer car for what it costs to fix.

Ford taurus will not shift into gear drive or reverse and transmission makes no noise


If brake light switch (down near brake pedal arm) fails, then the car will not allow you to shift into gear. [ And you may not have break lights either (!) ] This switch serves as the safety interlock as well - to make sure your foot is on the brakes before it will allow you to shift out of P - Park, and in to D drive, or R reverse. It was also a "FORD RECALL" on my car, a long long time ago, to have that switch replaced - as it was failing early / a lot on many of these cars. BOTTOM LINE - you must get the switch replaced. HOWEVER - in the mean time, you can probably get the car into gear by doing something like this (from memory, hope I have it correct for you): with engine OFF / not running. 1. Turn ignition to second position - Click Click - the RUN position, but do not start the engine. 2. Put car in Neutral or N. (hold brake down so car won't move) 3. Now start engine. Now will allow you to shift from N into D - drive or R- reverse. [ that's just from memory, long time ago - but I think it will work something like that ].
You may not have brake lights working ... so best to fix ASAP.
Also, shifting like this is a pain in the ... so plan to drive very soon to mechanic / or FORD Dealership and fix ASAP. Tell them you KNOW it was a RECALL on this vehicle - so hopefully they should fix it for you for little or no cost. Hope this helps. cheers!

I think your torque converter IS the problem. Because it's the only thing that attaches the engine to the transmission and it's designed to "lock up" at highway speeds for overdrive. If it locks up at idle it will kill the engine. If it locks up at slow speeds ( < 35mph ) the vehicle will lurch/buck... And if it wont move in forward or reverse I would say it's time for a new/rebuilt transmission

Transmission issue w/Ford Taurus?


Sorry to tell you this. You have an AXOD/AX4N Transmission and it is going bad on you. Soon, it is going to strand you on the road.

This Transmission is a Money Maker for the Mechanics and Transmission shops around the world.

Some people will put Lucas into their transmissions to extend the life of the Transmission but there are people who do that and cause it do DIE!!!! and I mean Immediately.

I am sorry to give you the bad news but at least it is Honest...

Transmission does not go into gear.


Hi, check that the cable is attached to the gear selector on the trans and does the shift quadrant move as it usually did.... not sticking or stiff in it's movement. Auto's are basically a hydraulic pump forcing oil in through valves and galleries in the valve body,,,, it could be that a gallery is blocked or that a valve has jammed shut..... check all electrical connectors for a proper fit..... do all the lights on the shift indicator light up as normal, no engine check light coming on ?

the transmission replcement mechanic may have missed plugging the 02 sensor back up,or layed the 02 sensor wires across the exhaust system,which burnt the 02 sensor wires.they also may have missed plugging sensors back up. suggest you go back to replacement mechanic and have them explain to you why it does'nt run the same. but do not be fooled,somethings not plugged back correctly.i know budget living. is check engine light on? if so, auto zone and advance auto parts can diagnose with printout for free. no charge! hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com us marine retired
