SOURCE: Ford Taurus Transmission Removal step by step

its quite a job, but hopefully this helps you, i have already replaced my gfs transmission on her 2000 taurus once and i need to do it again, ford really sucked on these transmissions. if you jack up the car high enough to give you about 21/2 feet of pllay under the car it would be good, take the tires off, take the calipers off, disc brakes, nut on axles, rack and pinion to the spindle, shocks, everything that will get in the way when you bring down the bottom frame. under the hood, i take out the intake air box and battery with battery plate so it gives you room to disconnect the shift cable and all connections that need to be disconnected. now remember when you bring down this frame its going to come down with motor and tranny, so you gotta either get an engine hoist or put some blocks under the mottor,take the starter off, take the torque converter cover off from the bottom its right in the middle of the motor and tranny 2 screws, there are 4 nuts honding the torque converter in there so you will probably need the help of someone to turn the main pulley as you look for those 4 nuts, take all bolts holding the transmission in place, take axles off, 2 big nuts for the rack and pinion, 2 nuts for motor mounts (if you are under the car they are holding onto the squared frame, use a engine hoist to hold on to the motor and use a jack under to hold the tranny, now this is the tricky part, you might want to use a second jack to hold the frame, as you take off the 4 main bolts for the bottom frame leave one so it dosent come crashing down, if you have everything secure, take the last bolt off as you have the jack holding it in the front in place, when you take it off then bring the jack down slowly making sure you got all bolts and connections, once that is down make sure all bolts and connections are disconnected from transmission, there are 2 metal hoses that go into the front of the transmission that are a pain to get out, squeeze the 2 little plastic ears that it has as you try to pull the tip out, play with it cause sometimes they are a pain, once you have that, double check everything and you can wiggle the tranny to make sure its loose off the motor if it is, take precaution and bring the jack down slow to bring your transmition down. hope it helps if you know some basics of mechanical.

I have a1998 Ford Taurus that has a transmission that is pouring fluid out of the bell housing. When it gets to running temperature, it pours fluid out even after the car is shut off. Can I ask you what...

Looks like it may have too much fluid inside. But, it also has to have a loose fill bolt, if manual transmission, or dip stick if automatic, or the drain bolt is loose.

Have someone check to see which problem it is, and check the proper oil level and tighten the plugs.

Transmission stalls after it gets hot

This usually happens when the transmission fluid gets hot.

Transmission fluid gets hot when there's not much of it.

Check your transmission fluid levels.

If it's low, you can fill it by pouring fluid down the testing hose. Just make sure to get a funnel.

Where do i locate the hole to check and fill the transmission fluid in a manual transmission for a 93 ford probe gt. v6

there is not transmission fluid in a manual transmission, only a pressure clutch that should have a canister located on the firewall under the hood. Not a big canister. Smaller than the brake fluid canister. And it takes brake fluid. If your clutch is working fine your fluid level is probably fine. Usually only have problems with them when the slave cyl. gets a leak. And if it were leaking your clutch would probably fail.

93 taurus overdrive not working

IF you have checked the fluid level and it is good then if you look at the fluid on the trans fluid dip stick at it is a dirty brownish color then your transmission is bad. If the color is a nice clear reddish and the fluid level is good then Overdrive is probably gone. Replace transmission or drive it until it quits altogether.

Transmission no longer moves car

I have a 2003 taurus also but these new cars use mostly synthic transmission fluid and if you have been going to some of these fast lube places and they have been putting the wrong fluid in your car plus over filling it it is very possible that the sensor on the transmission is bad check all this out before you do all this spend time at a ford dealer and ask some questions and talk with the service manager you may still have warrenty on this transmission

Transmission fluid port - cannot find for Taurus 2004

You add transmission fluid through the dipstick opening for the transmission... you need a long neck funnel to do so.. they make a transmission fluid funel that you can get. Be careful not to over fill!
