Tune it up? A fluid and filter change is all that you can usually DIY. If it still is shifting horrible, a rebuild is your next option. Stop and see your local transmission expert.

But at around a couple to a few thousand dollars that it will cost for a rebuild or new trans, think about installing a used one or trading in/selling the car. Not doing that on a '97 Taurus.

Do you mean tuning as in race tuning it? Different valving and other items but costly.
