auto transmissionspins like in neutral.

Asked by Jul 19, 2015 at 03:29 PM about the 2006 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

was driving and i thought the transmission popped into neutral because it acted like a car in neutral because it just spun in all gears including reverse. it's a 2006 ford taurus with an automatic transmission. what would cause it to act like neutral all of a sudden. I just had to have a new coil pack , plugs and wires installed 2 weeks ago but its been running super till this. can a short or a computer issue cause the tranny to not engage in any gears?

With cars running by computers anything is possible, but, I'm sorry to tell you this, Ford Taurus has a notorious reputation for bad transmissions. Since your car is a 2006, I imagine you have 80,000 miles or more and a friend of mine lost his transmission around 85,000. They're just not built well. Other than that, it could be a bad speed sensor or a faulty computer. You really need to get a mechanic to check it out. My advice, if it is the transmission, fix it and drive it for a few years to get some value, then sell it. Good luck.

Car when going from 1st to 2nd to drive goes into neutral as I'm driving Anderson 92 Taurus car when going from 1st to 2nd to drive goes into neutral 92 Taurus Ford
