First of all are you experienced in mechanic work at all not just tune-ups and oil changes if not stop you are headed into a tunnel and the light that you see on the other side is without a doubt a train and it's got a lot of cars and will not stop///you will be in hell without a hand basket now for the guy whose got nuts/bolts in his blood you must (a) drain the coolant out of the radiator/motor till dry tape large plastic bags over the hose ends for any left over so it doesn't spill on the ground///this is very poisonous for animals and will instantly kill them or some unattended kid who happens to lick it PLEASE BE CAREFUL HERE NOT TO MENTION THE EVIORMENTAL SUMMONS FOR $5,000.00 if you make a mess in the street you can also be arrested for this that being said lets go to the next step(b) got to all electrical connectors and disconnect & tag/label so you remember where they go next (c) drain the transaxle fluid into a sizeable storage container/bucket/pan, then pour it into bottles that seal and remove from the area next also put the pan back in and tighten so no fluid escapes and disconnect the transaxle lines from the radiator and cap them or once again tie plastic bags around them so they don't leak fluid all over the place(d) take off the wheels on both sides and unbolt the drive axles and with a puller push the axles on both sides out of the spindles next (e) disconnect and remove the calipers/brakes---use a c clamp or a caliper piston rotating tool (I don't remember which is used for the front but ask at the local parts store or look into the caliper if you see two recessed holes in it you need the tool if not the c clamp will do it)next (f) with a dent puller AKA. BAM BAM and a drive axle attachment pull out the transaxle side of the axles and put aside and do not mix them up one is longer than the other so label them reach and into the transaxle housing where the axles where fitted into and retrieve the C-LOCKS that hold the axle in the transaxle next=== did you give up yet or are we still plugging away if your still with me your almost there next (g) take a hydraulic jack/or tranny jack with a large flat piece of wood and place it under the motor/transaxle a engine hoist would be much better but you can use a hydraulic jack and please don't even think about those tiny wal - mart jacks you'll be in big trouble fast next(h) unbolt the subframe and then lower the jack which will lower the whole engine trans assembly together next un bolt the tranaxle and slide it off unbolt the torque convertor reverse removal proceedure

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.

I bought a 2004 Ford Taurus and having problems with it shifting. Sometimes it will not shift out of a low gear and revs high RMPs into overdrive or drive. Sometimes I have to pull over, stop, turn the car...


Have you checked the trans. fluid level and condition-should be a clear red, not burnt or brown looking.
Have a shop or transmission shop diagnose it. First they will check for trouble codes to see if there is an electrical problem. It kind of sounds like it. But if it is an internal mechanical problem-you know what that means: transmission rebuild or replacement.

IT is a 1998 taurus SHO model very rare it seems to be. Why can't I find a place that will sell me a Ford Taurus Manual for a 1996-1999 taurus SHO model with the 3.4 V8 yamaha engine.


If you are looking for a haynes manual or something which are based on complete tear down and rebuilds of the car, i would see if on the book itself it lists your engine, yamaha only made one car engine really and it was for the SHO which is fantastic however rare, look online and in google for a manual that lists your car, if you are not a fan of buying online, try phoning a company but unless the book you are searching does not list your engine it might cover all the rest but not your powertrain.

Here is a book i found online its a chilton.

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.
