FORD TAURUS TRANSMISSION PROBLEM

1999 Ford Taurus • 60,000 miles

Whines, when it starts. Have had new power steering pump & pullies. New torque converter & some bearings, trans. Mechanic said the pump for the tran is good.
Still whines when starting and gets lets as it warms up but still whines. Had new A/C comp. &Amp; drier kit in July. Any ideas what this whine could be?

The front pump is common.

The transmission mechanic said the pump to the transmission was OK. Is that a front pump?

Roy said it might be the front pump. The transmission mechanic said he checked the pump to the transmission & it was OK. Is that the front pump?

Use a Long. Screw Driver to check each component by the pulley. Just stick it to your ear by the pulleys. You will hear the whining noise on the bad component.

HOW LONG DOES IT WHINE? WHILE CRANKING----AFTER IT "BUSTS OFF" AND RUNS?

I EXPERIENCED A TERRIBLE WHINE IN MY JEEP ONCE UPON A TIME. DIVORCED HER. FOUND A GOOD REPLACEMENT AT A LOCAL RESTAURANT

THIS ONE SEEMS TO KNOW THE DEALMAYBE SHE'LL LAST AS LONG AS MY JEEPS.35 AND 66 YEARS, RESPECTFULLY

CAN YOU COMPARE IT TO ANOTHER SOUND AND IT'S DURATION?

When this lst happened, I taped the sound & the mech. Thought it sounded like the power steering pump which they replaced. It whines when we start it, when it is accelerated it continues, then I shifted it and it still is there. Once the car is warmed up it becomes less, but is still there. My husband says it is a squeal and when you
hit the accelerator, it is a high pitched squeal.

ALL-RIGHTY THEN

WE'RE GONNA GO HIGH TECH WITH THIS ONE

LET'S RAISE THE HOOD ON A COLD TAURUS

THIS COULD BE DISASTROUS, IF YOU DECIDE TO TEXT DURING THIS PROCEDURE

WE'RE GONNA NEED TO ACQUIRE A "CJ MEDEVAC-O-MATIC-O-SCOPE"

NO PROBLEM!

YOU ARE GONNA NEED A 3-4 FOOT LONG PIECE OF 1/2 OR 3/4 HEATER HOSE---OR THE EQUIVALENT LENGTH OF GARDEN HOSE

DON'T HAVE?

SURELY, YOU CAN SNEAK OVER TO THE NEIGHBOR'S HOSE WITH THE PRUNING SHEARS WHEN IT GETS DARK

NEXT STEP

FIRE THE CAR UP AND OBSERVE WHERE STUFF IS MOVING---WE WANNA STAY AWAY FROM THAT STUFF

. OR THAT NOISE WILL BE THE LEAST OF YOUR WORRIES!

YOU MAY HAVE TO SORTA EXPLORE ALL OVER WITH ONE END OF THE HOSE SHOVED IN YOUR EAR AND THE OTHER END USED LIKE A STETHOSCOPE

NO PLAYIN' AROUND. LISTENIN' TO EVERYBODY'S HEART AND STUFF!

WE GOTTA FIND THIS BEFORE THE ENGINE WARMS UP!

I WANT YOU TO PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE THROTTLE BODY AREA.I'VE SEEN A FEW CARS MAKING THE "KAZOO SOUND" DUE TO A THROTTLE BODY GASKET NEEDING REPLACING

ALSO LET'S LISTEN AROUND THOSE IDLER AND TENSIONER PULLEYS TOO

. NO LUCK. KEEP SEARCHING!

'MEMBER TO KEEP THE HOSE AND YOUR EXTREMITIES AWAY FROM THOSE PESKY MOVING PARTS!

ONCE YOU FIND THE SOUND.

RETURN (JUST SLING IT) THE PIECE OF HOSE TO YOUR NEIGHBOR'S YARD. VANDALISM CARRIES A LIGHTER SENTENCE THAN THEFT. SHOULD YOU NOT BE CAREFUL ENOUGH

RESULTS?

GOT MY HARD TOP AND HEATER INSTALLED AGAIN FOR THIS WINTER!

CHECK OUT THEM COMPLICATED 'WIND'ER' REGULATORS
