Question about 1997 Ford Taurus
Just changed engines and speedometer, odometer and cruise control not working, Also Service Engine Soon light is on continuously and O/D Off message is flashing often. Shifting speed very erratic. Very high rpm on drive on highway. Must change to 2nd gear and then shift back to Drive. Suggestions?
Computer probly needs to be flashed or reprogrammd to sync w new motor---some independent shops have the factory gear to do this-dealers only go back like 5yrs

THE SPEEDO PLAYS A BIG PART IN HOW YOUR TRANSMISSON SHIFTS GEARS FIX SPEEDO FIRST AND THE TRANS WILL SHIFT PROPLEY AGAIN CHECK FUSES

its in the timing ...whenever you start it it sits and idles fine but when you go to put it in gear it dies...the timing needs to be repaired. its a guaranteed solution.

there is a speed sensor on the top of the rear differential. either the sensor is bad or it has become unplugged. when the truck doesnt know how fast it is going, the trans goes into "limp mode" to protect itself...whic causes it to shift hard and if u look you'll notice the o/d light is blinking
