Re: 95 taurus gl questions

The only thing to really watch out for, is that they over heat some times because of the water pump. I've had 2 Merc Sables and a Taurus that had that problem, but I used to run the cars hard. So I replaced the water pump and thermostat, and they ran like champs, .

Transmission failure is also a common problem.

I'm not for sure what the average is. Did you look on this site link I posted?

Here's another link showing people complaints/mileage about the 95's transmission. 1995 Ford Taurus transmission failure -- [ CarComplaints.com ]

Re: 95 taurus gl questions

Transmission problems on the 95 have been corrected in 93 - 94. Depends on your production date. They installed a steel front piston. The only real problem with them
is springs. Be prepared to replace all at one time or another. And another thing. Ford recommends installing a transmission cooler and curb your driving habits.

Why, so the transmissions will hold up?
