Not 100% sure what it might be that is causing the studder when it shifts down into second.

It is, however, worth mentionign that the Taurus/Sable has some of the worst transmissions known to man. Especially on the early 90's models, but even the 1996 and on models are bad.

With any transmission in a Taurus/Sable, expect that it may need replacement or rebuilding at some point after the 80,000 mile line.

My 1997 sable has 120k miles on it now, and I need a tranny rebuild badly. I'm surprised mine lasted so long, but it might be becasue I have mostly highway miles on it.

Hope this helps,
Matt

PS.
Anyone out there know any good places for bargains on tranny rebuilds/replacements? :)
