1997 Taurus Trans questions

I have a 1997 Taurus wagon that started to try and stall when I stopped at a stop sign (engine bogged down and kind of felt like it jumped in and out of gear.) The transmission never slipped or whined. The next day I was driving on the highway and I lost all transmission (engine just revved.) The car goes into park and holds, but absolutely nothing in F or R. I had recently checked the oil on the dipstick and it was fine. Now the oil is fairly high on the dipstick (I did not add any fluid.) I'm guessing the pump might be bad...Also, the door VC label code for the transmission (TR) is "X". Is this an AX4N trans ???

Thanx for any help..

Re: 1997 Taurus Trans questions

Just to verify - you checked the transmission fluid in NEUTRAL right? Not in park? Fluid doesn't flow through the valve body in park, and can read high on the dipstick. Others will chime in for a fix...

Read the dipstick, Jimmy. It says," check hot in park." the old dodges were checked in
neutral. The 727 and the 904.

Re: 1997 Taurus Trans questions

Update..I found a used trans and put it in. The pump does seem bad (the shaft just spins, can't feel the pump turning)...
