Just bought a 1997 Ford taurus The transmission once hot (up to temp) loses overdrive an drive 1st an reverse are strong , What could the issue be with it a module, Filter, Lines ???


If you put in 6 quarts of trans fluid the trans and tourque converter must have been bone dry.
By the way trans temp and engine are usually the same or close.
The heat is from friction, the friction is from the clutches slipping.
You need a new trans,

My 05 taurus is slipping into first gear and slipping into reverse what could it be


You drove a transaxle, knowing it wasn't working correctly

That & not changing the fluid every 3 years-- is a death sentence

The Taurus only averages 85,000 miles, life span

I once owned a trans shop

50% asian transaxle dodge caravans & 50% ford taurus -- was most of my work, at times through out the year

Slow shifting when engine is cold


I have the same problem with my 97.... especially shifting from 3rd to O/D... I've had the tranny serviced and flushed.... It still does it until the tranny warms up.... the tranny's in them are temperature picky!!!!! It's the nature of the beast!!! Wait until spring and everything will be good until next winter!!! If you're really concerned with it you can put a "cold front" on it or block half (NO MORE THAN HALF) of the tranny cooler with cardboard thru the winter months
