Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
I have a '96 Ford Taurus and it shakes a lot when in reverse or sitting idle too long while in drive. It's an automatic transmission and the fluid levels are fine.
I don't know if it's related or not, but while driving it the RPM meter will jump up 'til about almost 4 then plunge back down to a little before 2 while accelerating. Also, at times you've really got to floor the gas pedal in order for it to move.
The transmission was just replaced 2 years ago, could it be transmission problems already?
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

i have a 2001 ford taurus and it did the same thing a while back, call the dealer and ask them for the sensor that is behind the brake pedal. It is not the transmission .. cost less that 25 bucks to fix and takes about 20 min

it depends on the trans but ford had alot of problems with though years with the overdrive shift kit it is a band in the trans and it pop out and break you need to take to local trans shop and let them look at it and tell them the problem and they will take the trans out and crack it up and replace the part that need to be replace before you have to replace the whole trans the ford dealerships dont have the best trans people hate to say that but it true take to someone who specialize in trans only

it could be that the tick over is two slow in brive,,,
set it up to tickover at 850,,950 rpm (in drive)
or it could be a gear box fult like the drive plate has a crack in it,,,letting the torque converter slap about,,,
chech tick over first,,, bont adjust tick over in gear unless the brakes are held hard on,,,

SOURCE: Ford E-350 2001 V-10 gas.
Check your fuel vapor recovery system, your van has unusual set up, and the effect is RAW fuel gets purged, rather than vapor.
The dead giveaway test is does the issue happen on light acceleration? Does it stop if you let off the throttle? Can you accelerate harder and "get past" the issue?
