1996 Ford Taurus

I recently bought a 1996 Ford Taurus that had been sitting in a Lot
for a while. I was backing out of my driveway and when I went to put
it into drive, it didnít go foward. Itís not switching gears.
Everything sounds normal. I was just wondering if there was an easy
fix to this problem. Thanks.

Re: 1996 Ford Taurus

Possible linkage problem?? Rusty?
Worse case scenario: transmission

Does it go backwards, but not forwards? First, double-check the trans
fluid level. Also, the neutral-saftey switch (or whatever it's called
now) could be bad. Otherwise, you could have a damaged forward clutch,
which is the weak point of the Taurus's transmission.
