I have the same vehicle, and had the same problem.
The bracket which holds the gear selector under the dash had worked loose, so, although I was shifting, the gears were not. It was basically stuck in park.
Two screws, and 10 minutes should fix the problem! :)

No forward engagement in drive position

If engine revs go high and no forward movement you most likely need a new transmission

Transmission issue w/Ford Taurus?

Sorry to tell you this. You have an AXOD/AX4N Transmission and it is going bad on you. Soon, it is going to strand you on the road.

This Transmission is a Money Maker for the Mechanics and Transmission shops around the world.

Some people will put Lucas into their transmissions to extend the life of the Transmission but there are people who do that and cause it do DIE!!!! and I mean Immediately.

I am sorry to give you the bad news but at least it is Honest...

My 92 Ford Taurus has had shifting probs for about 5yrs, but recently it wouldn't catch any gear to move forward, and severely "bucked" in reverse. Mechanic says it might be speed sensor,...

Some speed sensors will help the transmission know when to switch gears, but with some of the things you describe, sounds like after driving it that long, damage to the transmission has occured. Also, it could be a bad torque converter. There is also something called the transmission torque converter clutch solenoid, causes the car to buck and cut off. Hope this helps, any questions just contact me.
