Re: 1998 Ford Taurus Transmission Interchange??
ok, well I bought the 98 car and here's what it does...
I can toss the column into (D), D or 1 and it will go just fine into gear...same for reverse. But it wont shift out of 1st gear when you go forward...just goes straight to redline.
lol, I can get it up to about 28-32mph in first though.
Ok, further diagnosis:
If left in 1st gear ( position 1 on indicator) the engine will stay tached at whatever rpm I'm at for the speed.
If I then put it in D position, it will cost and the rpm will actually drop on the engine to about what you would expect it to be at for D at the speed I'm cruising at...however, it will free tach until it reaches the rpm needed for 1st gear to catch.
Same thing for (D) position, rpm will drop to what you'd expect until you rev it to match the rpm needed for 1st.
Is this an internal transmission problem or some sort of electronic problem?? I dont want to pull this transmission out if I dont have to.
