Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

...okay, buddy---you've got several issues here---Taurus transmissions historically have been problematic..."put tranny fluid in it"...do you mean putting the level between the two hash marks with the motor running?....are you losing fluid? "runs a short amount of time"...do you mean before the tranny starts to slip?....confused.~
