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.

Where do I put in the transmission fluid in a 96 Ford Taurus 3.0 6-cylinder?


Look for the red dip stick the yellow is always engine oil the red is the transmission don't mix them up . You can add transmission fluid down this tube. However if your haveing shifting problems look at the color of the existing oil and smell it . It shouldn't smell burnt and should be red in color if it is you may need to have the flushed and serviced to keep it from dieing on you . Its a lot cheaper them replaceing the trany

Ask a trans repair shop,but I doubt it

The best you could hope for, would be to change the
trans wire harness.

I doubt the PCM will even work with the other trans

Should have rebuilt your AXOD

I have a 1997 ford taurus. i put the car in drive and it will hardly move forward. the engine runs fine and was drive ok until this happened. reverse seems to be ok.


The first thing I would do is check the transmission fluid level.

The unfourtunate thing on these certain cars they are very notorious for having transmission problems. I am sure it is nothing you have done wrong, Ford had a lot of issues with their transmissions through those years.

I hope this helps, Allen

96 Ford Taurus GL Revving problem when stop then go


Did you check the transmission fluid again. You could have a major leak. Or reving the car up so high it started to burn the clutches in your transmission, resulting in replacing the transmission. Always check the fluid. A few dollars for fluid is better than 1500 bucks for a new tranny

That would be your neutral park switch is bad or broken. If the shifter linkage is not aligned with the neutral park switch it will not work properly. Located on drivers side on top of Trans.
