    car must not be moving when you use park or you will destory the parking pawl (and friends) inside the tranny. that tranny leak must be fixed, its hopeless that., fix that an pray it shifts again. The ECT is harmless, it just "shift easy or harder" easy is of economy and other is for more spory driving, it just delays shifts) your tranny is very sick, if it leak, time for tranny service.

When i leave my car on and parked it sounds like its going to shut off

You don't state whether the car is manual or automatic transmission (yes, the Taurus SHO was made during the 1990's with a manual transmission). The RPM's could be an indicator that your car needs a tune-up by a qualified mechanic. Regarding starting the car in neutral, if it is a manual transmission, it won't start in "gear", the reasons for that would be obvious.

If it is an automatic transmission, you DEFINITELY need to take your car to a mechanic. If your car has been worked on by a backyard mechanic, it may have serious problems that need to be corrected before something undesirable happens: I had a car once that would start "in gear" and it was an automatic transmission. I almost ran over my boss once because I forgot to make sure it was in "park" when I started it. That could have been tragic.

Is there a fuse for transmission in a 1995 Pontiac Grand Am???

If you just had trans work done, don't use the car,
take it back & hopefully they will resolve the issue

Parts Store people are not all mechanics or shouldn't even
give out advice.

You should have a warrantee, use it

I have a 2002 liberty 4x4 starts and shifts in to gear then acts like its in neutral

Don't know if this will help however my caravan has gotten stuck in gear before and a simple disconnect of neg battery cable fixed the problem, since nowadays all transmissions are electronic and disconnecting the neg battery cable resets your transmission. Hope this helps

Have you checked to see if the linkage is adjusted correctly? If the linkage is okay, I'm hoping it's gunk stuck inside the valve body or other component.
My old fix,tried and true, is to add one and a half cans of `Sea-Foam' TRANSMISSION TREATMENT to a large transmission(10 qt. capacity or more).
By following the directions on the can and running the ****** thru its paces, it might start working for you. don-ohio
