I have a transmission problem with my 97 Ford Tarus. ( Trans. AX4N ) The Transmission has a winding sound and auto shift is hard. We have the transmission removed, thinking it was the torque converter. The fluid seems to be ok and was changed about 35000k ago. No cuttings are present in the fluid,torqe or the filter. The sound in the transmission is also present at idle.
I would appreciate any tips for trouble shooting this problem.
