The normal way to remove the transmission from this car is to drop it out the bottom, after raising the vehicle. You can pull it out the top, but you would first have to remove the engine, since it sits on top of the transmission. The specific steps are best found elsewhere, such as Autozone's website, at the path

  • (the advantage with the Autozone instructions is that they're free, and they're illustrated), or you can buy an official Ford service manual for this vehicle (often still available on eBay for decent prices), or from online repair subscription services like AllData, etc., though AllData's instructions for transmission removal from this vehicle aren't illustrated.

    No you can just remove the axle on the driver side and disconnet the lower ball joint and disconnect the tie rod end to drop it out.

    I doubt the sensor would make the engine stop running. The computer would slow down the spark timing to prevent engine knock, but not shut it off.

    How do i remove transmission from a 1994 ford taurus lx

    Not alone and not in your driveway,on a transaxle

    That job is best left to a transmission repair shop
    That is what they do all day long

    I used to own one

    You need to break the suspension apart,
    remove the drive axles,support the motor,
    then what.
    Even in a repair shop, you loose a lift,after that,although,
    there are ways of getting the vehicle off and outside

    What are the metal tubes for above the transaxel filter? 1 is lose and need to know how to get it to stay up in the trans. Axod transaxel

    They are to transfer fluid to different parts of the transaxle. If it is loose it could cause an internal leak which could result in lower that normal oil pressure in the transaxle. Low oil pressure could cause transaxle failure because clutches would not apply with enough holding pressure. I would suggest replacing it with a new one or see if you can expand the loose end and press it back into it's bore.
