You will have to take it to a dealer and hook it up to a computer to reset the system may also be a trany shift sensor make sure you check trany fluid first remember car must be running to get a correct level

My daughter's 96 Automatic Ford Taurus GL would not shift out of 1st gear, so we did a Transmission Filter change thinking it may be the cause. It did help, but it is shifting really hard into 2nd gear...


The transmission shift solenoids are bad and the 0430 is your catalytic convertor on the left side is below the efficiency threshold but this could be from trying to get the trans to change gears extra gas pedal rpm's and low gear ratio change the shift solenoids that are inside the pan and then after road test and transmission is shifting disconnect the battery cables and wait 5min then reconnect them then you must turn the key to the on position but do not start the engine observe the dash lights as they should go out (ex. Check engine,abs,airbag,)the others will stay on you are in the obd test mode the system self tests itself everytime you turn the key to the on position now if everything is good the check engine light will be off for the entire system now start the engine and let it get to operating temperature and go for a ride in about 10 miles or less if the 0430 is still a problem the check engine light will come on again and you will be sure of a problem with the catalytic convertor but a good 55mph drive with Berrimans fuel system cleaner should help clean the emissions from the build up if not you need a catalytic convertor

VERY HARD SHIFTS AFTER ENGINE IS WARM.


Your going to have to get the car scanned for the DTC code. The Check engine light indicates that the ECM has detected an issue with the cars engine or transmission performance. Your hard shifting could be the failure to the Pressure control solenoid (PCS), that would be a DTC code P1811. The PCS is located under the trans axle side cover assembly. IF you go to Auto Zone, they can scan your car free of charge and can give you the step by step instruction to replacing the part that may have failed. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.
