Question 2005 Ford Taurus Transmission ?

I have a 2005 ford taurus that won't engage in any gear but park. Was told i need a new transmission. Could it be anything else? Already replaced filter and fluid and saw no metal shavings. No warning signs of any problems until it wouldn't go. Also, will a trans from a 92 taurus be compatible if trans needs replaced?

Hello and good day to you Andrea:

Just because the shift does not engage into R,D, etc does not mean you need a new Transmission.

First I would get a Second or Third opinion on this.... Also I do not believe a 92 Taurus Tranny would be compatible.

Transmission replacement depends on several factors Engine Size, Engine Type, Year make model of Taurus.

There Are a few guys here that are very well versed in this (Jwko, Tbird, 360ci,Shoz, TheFonz, and others)

I would lean more toward the Shift Linkage. This is in the Steering Column of the Steering Wheel.

Andrea, some Mechanics will take advantage of Ladies coming into a shop, and are not well versed in Auto Repair.

So My advise would go to a trusted Shop (call Friends, Family, Co-workers,etc) and get those other opinions.

Good Luck and good repairing Sterling_6

A '92 to a '05 won't mate up correctly, as the chassis are different, along with the mounting points, bellhousing, etc.

As S6 mentioned above, the shift linkage is the most probable culprit. I haven't checked on my own Taurus, but you should be able to adjust it along side the transmission, under the vehicle. A repair manual will help if you plan to do it yourself, and get/hire a friend for a couple hours.

If you're one who likes to throw the gear selector into gear while the vehicle is still moving, ie, backing out of a driveway still rolling when you move the selector from R to D, then as mentioned, you more than likely have a linkage problem. If the linkage is the culprit, be sure to monitor your own driving habits to make sure you don't strain the transmission, in any way, more than necessary to get the longest life out of the unit.

The 92 transmission will not even fit the 93 or the 91. They are one year only.
93 - 94 - 95 are the same and then they changed again.
