Have you checked the transmission fluid? IF that is ok then the issue is most likely related to either the torque converter and solenoid or the brake sensor switch.

Hello. My Ford Taurus 97 LX does not engage the 4th gear. It just standing still in 3rd gear. What can be happening? Thank you.


TCC torque converter clutch solenoid is stuck or bad. It is in the transmission with the solenoid package. Try some transmission additive first, this may help. If not then the package needs replaced.

2000 Ford Tarus- Took off from stop sign just fine then car wouldn't go faster. As I pushed the gas, the car reved but wouldn't go. Pulled over and shut car off. Started car again and tried...


I would guess that something inside of the transmission has failed and there is no longer a mechanical connection between the motor and the drive axles regardless of what gear you attempt to move in.[sheared splines, broken planetary, etc.] Often when this happens you won't hear any kind of noise because of the failed parts being inside the transmission case...instead the car just won't go anymore. You could have a CV drive axle joint that has failed but generally they will make some noticable rattling or grinding noise as they churn away when you try to go forward or reverse. If something has failed inside of the transmission then the transmission will need to be removed and repaired. It if is just a drive axle joint that has failed then that can be replaced without doing anything to the transmission. Hope this helps and good luck!

My 92 Ford Taurus has had shifting probs for about 5yrs, but recently it wouldn't catch any gear to move forward, and severely "bucked" in reverse. Mechanic says it might be speed sensor,...


Some speed sensors will help the transmission know when to switch gears, but with some of the things you describe, sounds like after driving it that long, damage to the transmission has occured. Also, it could be a bad torque converter. There is also something called the transmission torque converter clutch solenoid, causes the car to buck and cut off. Hope this helps, any questions just contact me.

The shift soleniods are located in the transmission case and are accessed by removing the transmission pan and no you don't have to remove the tire unless you are going to remove the half-shaft.

Did you test drive it,before you paid. NO,why not? Take it back,sounds like they didn't either. Why would you waste extra money ,by going to a dealer vs. a local repair shop?
