Question about 1995 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

The car is fine when in park or neutral, but when i shift in drive or reverse (or other gears), a loud rattling sound comes from under the car (maybe toward the passenger side) at low speeds. It goes away when I accelerate past about 7 miles per hour, and returns when I decelerate to the speed. I have checked the transmission fluid and added some, but the noise remains.

Turbo 400 transmission is making a loud metal to metal noise when shifting from drive to reverse or park to reverse.


could be internal piston housing failure for the bands
pull the pan and see what metal is in the pan
there is an aluminium housing that breaks away from the transmission body proper and is replaceable

The transmission shifts fine in drive, but when going through the geers, Park works, Reverse acts like park, Neutral acts like drive, Drive works, 2nd and 1st work. Any Ideas?


Hi Ken:
Sounds as if the linkage is out of adjustment. Did something specific happen to cause this to start to occur? If you look at the linkage, there will be some point where you can shorten or lengthen the rod that attaches to a lever on the transmission. One way will make it better, the other will make it worse.

Shifter is erratic. wont start in park. drives forward when shifted to reverse, sometimes drives forward when in park. sometimes reverse is neutral (which is good so it will start!!!) what is going on???


It sounds like the linkage at the transmission has come loose. Have someone get inside and move the shift lever from gear to gear so you can see where the linkage is on your transmission. You'll have to climb under ypou truck to see this, on the drivers side. check to see that all the bolts are tight. Your switch that allows you truck to start in Park or Neutral is located there.

your problem lies in the internal parts of your transmission which are the clutch linings, they are already worn out and starts to slide.

1999 taurus. 6 cyl OHV. Ran fine over the weekend. Parked car in driveway. Started this morning. Heard high(RPM) pitch winding sound coming from engine or tranmission. Noticed will not reverse or move into...


Check for vacuum lines going to transmission or any vacuum line under hood. It is possible an animal chewed on the lines or wires. We get a few reports of that at Fixya.

You might also look under the dash by the pedals for a vacuum leak. There are vacuum switches for parking brake release and the neutral start switch.

Noisy shifting


I'm wondering if what you are hearing is the driveshaft universal joints. If they are worn they will 'clunk' every time you put the vehicle in gear. Block all wheels to check, put vehicle in neutral, NOT running, crawl under and move the driveshaft back and forth while watching the front then rear u-joint. It should be obvious if there is 'slop' or 'play' in them, which would indicate they need to be replaced.

Everytime I put my car i park it goes into reverse.


It sounds like you have a damaged shifter cable.It is an adjustable cable but if it is that far out of adjustment then it is probably damaged. Replace it.
