Hey, everyone! I have another question concerning my '97 Ford Taurus. What would cause the transmission to grind when accelerating after a complete stop?

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

Planetary gear failure. It is internal from your description. Just to make sure, have your axle shafts checked for noise before considering a transmission removal and overhaul.

Would it be cheaper just to buy a re-built or even new transmission?

Ford reman would be about 2400 just for the trans looking at 8-10 hours labor.
A used one is a crap shoot. These trans do not have a good track record. You might get a good one or you may not. No warranty except 30 days.

Could it be anything other than the transmission?
