I think your torque converter IS the problem. Because it's the only thing that attaches the engine to the transmission and it's designed to "lock up" at highway speeds for overdrive. If it locks up at idle it will kill the engine. If it locks up at slow speeds ( < 35mph ) the vehicle will lurch/buck... And if it wont move in forward or reverse I would say it's time for a new/rebuilt 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...

While backing up I lose power steering


could be your transmission mount is broken, when you put your engine in reverse.. with out giving it gas does the power steering work? More than likely when you are giving it gas you are apply torque to the engine and it is moving so much that you are twisting the drive axles and putting pressure on your front suspension. open the Hood and set you remergency brake and have someone put the car in reverse,,, if the engine moves significantly then that is your problem.. you will need to replace all three mounts for the engine and transmission.

Sad to say but your automatic transmission has bit the dust.

Automatic Transmision went, but still drives in reverse


Will it move in manual low or if you rev up the engine? And you don't have to remove the engine to get the transmission out. I've removed lots of them. You do however have to remove the sub frame.

Car stops moving in reverse gear


Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.
