You need to take it back to where you had the trans rebuilt and have them check the codes for the trans. When mine did that there was a big problem but I waited to long to go have it checked out and ruined the trans.

Transaxle light ford taurus

It could be a sensor, fuse, relay, transmission service issue or the ecu. It means the torque converter is not locking when the car moves. Get the fluid checked asap. If its discolored or burnt get the fluid and filter changed. Next to a relay or fuse which are very rare causes the transmission service is the cheapest option in fixing the problem. But try not to drive for too long while this is going on, it like all fluids in a car can and will cause permanent damage and can lead to extremely expensive repair costs in the future. Hope this helps.

2000 taurus wont go into drive unless i shut it off then turn it on.

Have the code remove to see why the transmission light is flashing. This might give you some info on what the repair needs to be. Good Luck

Transmission oil coming out the funnel

If you mean it is coming out of the fill/dipstick tube, then quit driving this car. You will trash the transmission, if it hasn't already happened. Usually when this happens the transmission cooler inside the radiator has busted, and is pumping coolant into the transmission. Then again I have seen some people just overfill it to the extreme. But either way it needs to be checked. This involves dropping the transmission oil pan.

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus and there is a blinking yellow light that looks exactly like a exclamation mark and it blinks and remain until car is cut off.

That is the transaxle i.e. transmission warning light. First step is to check the fluid level. Follow instructions on the dipstick. If fluid is ok, and light is still on, have someone pull the computer codes. Most parts stores can do this, usually for free. However, a Ford dealer or good transmission shop can tell you exactly why the light is on, but they will charge you for that.

Ford 1997 Taurus 3.0 GL, automatic gears shifting and driving normal and smooth when suddenly ( but not often) car slows down and rev up if I keep on pressing accelerator. Problem only solve if I switched...

I think having owned a transmission repair shop in the
past, that your going to need to remove the transaxle
and have it rebuilt for about $1,500.00 or more
No other fix

Will a transmission #ax4s from 1988 ford windstar fit a 200 windstar with transmission # ax4s

I dont think that will work ....1988 was aod and aode trans

The AXOD-E was renamed AX4S in 1993. In addition to the name change, improvements in the lubrication of the gearset and capacity upgrades were made. A centrifugal piston assembly was implemented in the intermediate clutch position to improve 1st-2nd and 2nd-1st shift quality and an increase in the clutch's durability was made on some models. High energy friction materials were also introduced. A new twin piston torque converter clutch (TCC) was introduced with the AX4S and the AX4N on some models. The transaxle pan on this model will sometimes read "AXOD Metric" since it's based on the AXOD transaxle. The data plate code for this transmission is "L."
The Ford AX4S automatic transmission is a four-speed electronic overdrive transmission used in 1995 to 2000 Ford Windstar minivan. The transmission is also used in 1991 to 2003 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable, and 1993 to 1995 Ford Taurus SHO models. The AX4S is a second-generation version of the AXOD and AXOD-E transmissions used in 1986 to 1991 Ford Taurus.
