Hello, Our 1999 Tarus seems to be haivng a jerk when driving. It does not happen all the time, however, when it does, there is very little power and the speedometer is not reading, it is at zero.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

The transmission is run by the electronic speedometer and if the the speedometer is not working the transmission will try to accomidate for the speed read on the speedometer and and will make the trans bump and jerk trying to figure out what gear to be in the only way to fix is by fixing the speedometer check the sensor first it is the cheapest place to start
