Before you spend a penny on anything else change the filter and fluid with Ford transmission fluid.

The reason your gas milage went down is because you are not going into 4th gear or overdrive the most likely problem is shift solenoid 3 but it could be a wiring or pcm concern.I would test ss3 and go from there.Canging of SS3 is fairly involved and you would need a decent mechanical ability to perform this task.

SOURCE: my 1997 ford taurus transmission slips when it shifts to second

this is caused by a piston in the transmission that has a crack in it once it warms up the crack seals and operates normally.being cold the crack opens up allowing fluid to flow past it. take to trans shop as soon as you can, will be minimum repair if it has not caused further damage in the transmission.

SOURCE: i cannot find the transmission speed

your looking for the turbine speed sensor a.k.a transmission speed sensor and not the vechile spees sensor correct? they are two different sensors! the transmission speed sensor is on the side of the transmission facing the side of the car around 11 o'clock in relation to the output shaft witch is where the cv axle goes in! if it is the vechile speed sensonr then it is on top of the transmission tail house for the other output shaft and the other cv goes too. if you follow the transmisssion dip stick down to the transmission it is in that area! good luck

SOURCE: 1994 Ford E350 transmission seems like it slips at 45-55 MPH.

If you went 1k miles since that same issue occurred I would look at the transmission. A faulty torque converter, clogged fuel filter, or a clogged CAT can cause a delay in the shifting but it would happen right away not 1k miles later.

SOURCE: Ford Taurus Transmission Removal step by step

its quite a job, but hopefully this helps you, i have already replaced my gfs transmission on her 2000 taurus once and i need to do it again, ford really sucked on these transmissions. if you jack up the car high enough to give you about 21/2 feet of pllay under the car it would be good, take the tires off, take the calipers off, disc brakes, nut on axles, rack and pinion to the spindle, shocks, everything that will get in the way when you bring down the bottom frame. under the hood, i take out the intake air box and battery with battery plate so it gives you room to disconnect the shift cable and all connections that need to be disconnected. now remember when you bring down this frame its going to come down with motor and tranny, so you gotta either get an engine hoist or put some blocks under the mottor,take the starter off, take the torque converter cover off from the bottom its right in the middle of the motor and tranny 2 screws, there are 4 nuts honding the torque converter in there so you will probably need the help of someone to turn the main pulley as you look for those 4 nuts, take all bolts holding the transmission in place, take axles off, 2 big nuts for the rack and pinion, 2 nuts for motor mounts (if you are under the car they are holding onto the squared frame, use a engine hoist to hold on to the motor and use a jack under to hold the tranny, now this is the tricky part, you might want to use a second jack to hold the frame, as you take off the 4 main bolts for the bottom frame leave one so it dosent come crashing down, if you have everything secure, take the last bolt off as you have the jack holding it in the front in place, when you take it off then bring the jack down slowly making sure you got all bolts and connections, once that is down make sure all bolts and connections are disconnected from transmission, there are 2 metal hoses that go into the front of the transmission that are a pain to get out, squeeze the 2 little plastic ears that it has as you try to pull the tip out, play with it cause sometimes they are a pain, once you have that, double check everything and you can wiggle the tranny to make sure its loose off the motor if it is, take precaution and bring the jack down slow to bring your transmition down. hope it helps if you know some basics of mechanical.

Speedometer stopped working. Transmission slips when in first/second gear. Tach revs to 3000 rpm. Still drivable but slow. 3.0 engine with air

Limp mode; get it checked.. Fault in the transmission. Even if it stops happening for a drive or two, it WILL return. This isn't a problem that will just come then disappear. Could be internals in the transmission or something like a sensor for the transmission that is faulty.

Problem with automatic transmission

have a transmission tuneup performed which may solve the problem. also have them check for metal shavings in the pan. take filter off and replace filter which could solve your problem. also may need a shift kit on the valve body.

My 1995 tauras tranny is slipping

Is the trans fluid level correct? Low fluid can cause the symptoms you describe. The level should be checked with the engine at operating temp and the shifter in park or neutral. Transmission rebuilds are extremely complicated, usually require special tools only available from the manufacturer, and not something to attempt without training. If you really want to attempt it yourself the full procedure will be available in the workshop manual. Your local ford dealer may let you copy the relevant pages, or you may be able to find a pdf copy online, or your local library may have trans rebuild books.

I have a 1997 taurus transmission badly slipping I need a manual to look at where can I get one for free

There isn't much you can do about that problem. You might try
changing the fluid and filter in the tranny but it is likely you will need the trans rebuilt. Good luck. Neil W.
