Question about Ford Taurus
My Taurus wants to slip into neutral a lot. If I glide a bit, it will go back into gear, sometimes with quite a ****. Other time I can tap the excelerator a few times and that will get it to go back in gear. I have no money for a big transmission job. Does anyone have any ideas what I can do?
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.

98 ford taurus want go into any gear?

I just had my 1994 Ford Taurus transmission rebuilt to replace the forward piston. The problem is with the aluminium piston that cracks and then expands when heated causing the pressure to be reduced and the transmission slips out of gear.
If you are going to have the transmission rebuilt have them check the clutch pack and pressure solenoids because the clutch pack could have become damage and grooved with the car abruptly going back into gear. The pressure solenoids could also be part of the problem.
A cracked forward piston and pressure solenoid is typically the problem. If you buy a replacement transmission core ensure that it has a forged steel forward piston. My repair was about $1800 from Transman in Petaluma, CA.

Ford Taurus Neutralizes When Warm
Q. 1994 Ford Taurus, 3.0 liter V-6. When the transmission is in gear the car rides for a short distance and then the transmission seems to go in to Neutral. I accelerate but the car does not advance. After the car cools off, I start the car again, drive for a short distance and it will repeat the same problem. Thinking it was a transmission problem, it was repaired and finally replaced, but the problem persists.
I wonder if it could be a sensor or an electronic problem, what do you suggest?
A. There was a TSB issued for this problem on the 1994 to 1998 Ford Taurus. TSB number 98-3-7 dated 02/16/98. It involves replacing the forward clutch piston with a revised Forward Clutch Piston, part number F8DZ-7A262-AB.
