SOURCE: 2000 ford taurus- wont shift into gear

first check drive axels , since you replaced front springs on struts i assume. it is possible that one of the axels popped out. next if thats ok check fluid level in trans with eng OFF should show over full make a srcribe mark on the stick. then START the eng it should go down to full or just below depends if trans is full or a little low . if level does not drop approx.1/2 in or so then have a transmission shop check for bad splines in torque convertor, that is a comon problem in that car, year and milage do not play a roll a large roll in parts failure in trans any more. not like it use-to.

SOURCE: car jerks at rapid acceleration

try changing your fuel filter. It may be a throttle position sensor, but if it was an electrical problem, your "check engine" light would be on and a mechanic would have to put the computer on it to test.

I would suggest changing your fuel filter.

You can go to www.autozone.com and register,

It sounds like the fuel is not being delivered sufficently to the engine. Try looking here. Perhaps a fuel injecter cleaner (you can pour Seafoam into the gas tank and it is a great fuel injecter cleaner and fuel stabilizer). What did your plugs look like when you replaced them? This can tell you a lot about the combustion chamber. A Haynes manual will be invaluable to you.

You may need a transmission flush, if one of the valves sticks in the transmission it may not make a quick decision to shift when in between gears. Worst case ...this may be a precursor to worse problems, like a transmission rebuild.

You do not mention any testing, the transmission and engine are fully electronically controlled, have the system scanned for fault codes as a first step in repair.

Best thing to do is take it to Auto zone or a parts store that will read the codes. Sounds like you have a bad coil pack on one or more of the spark plugs. Getting the codes will pin point the problem.

Check the spark plugs, and wires. If you see nothing wrong here, it may be getting just enough of gas to keep it running (ALMOST CUTTING OFF, BUT A SHOT OF GAS BARELY KEEPS IT GOING) this could cause it to jump and hop. If this is the case then it may need a fuel system cleaning, one of the injectors may not be functioning at the right PSI. I don't think it would be the ignition coil.

Is your check engine light illuminated? It sound to me that your speed sensor is defective. This is a very common condition or the ford taurus in the same year range.

1996 down shifts going down the road from od to d


Sounds like you have some trubble with your electronics. Probably need to hock it up to diagnose it. I would guess that the electronics in your car sends the wrong information to your gearbox, and therefor "lureing" it to downshift. It culd have something to do with the kickdown aswell, but since the gauges act the way they do, It seems more likely to be caused by the electronics.
