My guess is it could be a sticky valve on the valve body inside the trans, or your 4th gear overdrive band is worn out. Have someone look it over for you.

most taurus;s I've worked on with no movement forward or backward out of the blue has been the torque convertor, the inner welds to the pump spline break causing no fluid to correctly flow, fixed probley 100 of them.always purchase a fully welded aftermarket convertor such as dacco, premium product, no combacks.
