You lack the knowledge of the vehicle systems your
trying to repair.
You wasted your time installing parts,rather than
studying what you want to work on

For now have it properly diagnosed at a local
repair shop.

Where to put transx stop leak for a transmission gasket leak in a 2001 ford taurus

Midas is not a place you should be at for anything
Stay away from the chain franchises

You do not put anything in any transmission
but the correct fluid

Any leak requires replacing the gasket

If it is a transaxle pan gasket that leaks that rubber &
cork auto parts store gaskets are too expensive & leak

You need to go to a trans repair shop & get a neoprene
gasket,it looks like cardboard & has a waxy finish & goes on dry

You can do that yourself

You need to be under the car & shown what your told
or your dealing with a wrong shop & will be taken advantage
of some day.

I took my moms 2001 ford taurus to be inspected. It fail due to EGR sensor.. Machnic said sensor needed to be cleaned. After taking apart he said valve was badly cloged. Soaked overnight and said it would...

I would highly suspect the "EGR backpressure sensor"
From experience and many conversations, a clooged EGR valve is almost unheard of these day. Get to an auto part store, were they can tell you what problem code(s) your car is getting, and possible good advice.
Sincerely, another 2001 Taurus owner.
