My Ford Taurus Transmission

My 1998 Ford Taurus Transmission went out recently after having a rear brake job, and a tune up. A local Transmission shop rebuilt the Transmission for $1700.00. I didn't realize, that used parts was used to rebuild this transmission. This was told to me after I took the vehicle back to have checked, after the check engine light came on. The Mechanic told me the that the computer texted the code as P0340 "Cam position sensor out of range." He further added he wasn't sure what this code meant, and suggested another shop to handle the matter (a friend of his). Also, I am concerned that when I'm driving and accelerates to 40 or 50mph the car seems to want to lose power, but doesn't cut off. For instance I'm driving along, and the pressing the gas, and the car seems to decelerate on it's own. I told the Mechanic of this concern and he said that the only thing he could figure out is the used valve body that was used to rebuild the transmission, came from another vehicle, and it was probably programmed just to fit that vehicle. He further stated that he had no real concerns, for the ID numbers matched, making the valve body compatible. I have real concerns about this situation. It's been almost two weeks, and the deceleration continues to get worse. Also, is it usual and customary to utilize used parts when rebuilding a transmission? For $1700.00 dollars? Please weigh in on this, I need some answers!!! Thank you kindly

Re: My Ford Taurus Transmission

My 1999 Ford Taurus is at the transmission shop because its Check Engine Light is on and it shows error code P1744--Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid Circuit Performance--the TCCis going out. I was under the impression when I bought my 99 last year that Ford would pay for one half of the transmission rebuild for 98 Tauruses and newer. Did you ever hear that? I just called Ford to find out about this and they said they do not do this. I had the transmission rebuilt on the 1993 Sable I had, too. Transmission and head gaskets are problems with the Tauruses. It sounds like transmission problems with the Taurus are a horrible can of worms. We had the head gasket replaced on the 99 in 2006 when I bought it, too. Also, my heater doesn't work. You might contact Ford to see if they will pay for half of the Transmission replacement.
