1996 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 100, 00 miles
I live in Australia and bought a second hand Taurus Jan 2008. Was having trouble Jan 2009 with the transmission going into neutral around left hand bends and took a while to engage from start but transmission was serviced and then wotked OK. I was told the transmission was on its last adjustment and may not last a lot longer. Last month had trouble not going into overdrive at 100 Km/H, but stopping the car, turning off and on again sorted it out. Last Tuesday without notice the car would not properly engage gear from neutral, allowing the car to travel around 10 Km/H at full revs; a few hours later it worked OK. Faults logged included P1761 Shift Solenoid C (also P1744 TCC System Performance, P1518 IMRC stuck open and P0734 Gear 4 incorrect ratio). Last week happened again, and turn off turn on again sorted it out. Happened again today, did not respond to turn off turn on and did not seem to log a relevant fault (did log C1928 VAPSII Input Ground Short, B1450 Wiper Delay Fault and B1322 Driver Door ajar). When the car goes it is fine which makes me think it is not mechanical but electrical. Any suggestions? Thanks Greg
have the same problem?
