Yep Taurus tranny's are known to go bad on a regular basis, you can try dropping the pan, and look for metal shavings in the tranny pan, if there are shavings in the pan then it's on it's way out, if no shavings then you could have solenoid failure or a internal seal problem, replace the filter and pan gasket then add 1 quart of "TransX" then refill with fluid, them drive it around, try to mix it up with a little stop and go right on up to freeway speeds, then let it set overnight, if it is going to help it will by then, but you have only stopped symptom, it will eventually fail.
