> My Dad's 90 Taurus trans was rebuilt about 30,000 miles ago. It had the fluid upgrade
As i recall, early AXOD had a lube problem in the planetary.
There was some modification of adding lube tubes, a new gasket
and some other goodies to make it more durable. BUT, these mods
had nothing to do with adding more fluid to the unit.
My old 90 was a dependable car. It had 160+ on it when i got rid of it
and the trannie was still going strong. My 93 wagon seems to hunt
shift in the 25/35 mph region under medium load. The old hydraulically shifted 90 was rock solid.
A 90 taurus is not worth a whole lot. I would change the fluid
and run it until it dies and then make tin cans out of it.
Why put 1500/2000 in it now when its worth less than $1000?
If you like it that much, you might be better off finding another one
of similar vintage with work already done to it rather than fix yours.
(I have a spare trannie in my garage, but its an AXODE and wont
fit yours.... ;) ).
