The forward clutches in the transmission have failed, this requires the trans to be overhauled.

When I put my 2000 Ford Taurus into reverse or drive it shuts off. But if I drop it into low it drives.


Sigh. The most likely answer is the MAF Boot (Air Mass Sensor) has a crack in it, AND, your motor mounts are worn out. When you put it in gear, there is a significant torquing of the engine, and it tends to try and "move" or twist to get the tired turning, but until you drive that isnt happening so the transmission clutch or torque converter eatst he rotation and allows it to idle. All find and well, HOWEVER, if your motor mounts are bad, then the initial twisting force when it goes into gear causes the engine to move enough that a crack in the MAF sensor will open, causing a massive air leak that tells the computer the wrong amount of intake air, it then sends the wrong amount of gas...engine only runs on right air and fuel. Engine stalls.

When putting in 1st gear, the lower gear coupled with quicker takeoff can sometymes prevent the initial stall and as the engine untorques when it moves back, the crack closes and returns to normal (ish)..
There could also be some electronic answers...but as its very common and easy/cheap to check, Id start there,.

Why does battery light come on when car is put in reverse?


It's most likely a short in the wiring somewhere. When the transmission is put in reverse, it'll cause the engine to shift, which could cause strain on the wiring harness and cause the field wire to the alternator to lose connection.

Transmission issue w/Ford Taurus?


Sorry to tell you this. You have an AXOD/AX4N Transmission and it is going bad on you. Soon, it is going to strand you on the road.

This Transmission is a Money Maker for the Mechanics and Transmission shops around the world.

Some people will put Lucas into their transmissions to extend the life of the Transmission but there are people who do that and cause it do DIE!!!! and I mean Immediately.

I am sorry to give you the bad news but at least it is Honest...

1999 FORD EXPERDITION TRANSMISSION WON'T MOVE FORWARD BUT MY REVERSE WORKS FINE WHAT I NEED TO DO


You can try shifting into manual 1 to get moving then once you get going shift the lever up into Drive. This should work, then drive it to a shop to have your ****** looked at.

My car engine is shaking


is it shaking due to rough running ? you may need a tuneup if not you may have a broken motor mount, with the hood open and the front and back of the vehicle is clear (not ruining anything over) stand to one side of the vehicle, observe the engine and have a helper with there foot firmly on the brake put it into reverse and apply the gas gently, then put it into drive and repeat the engine should move very little if it moves considerably replace the motor mount
