Ford Taurus Trasmission Problem

Asked by Oct 07, 2014 at 07:32 PM about the 2001 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 Ford Taurus. The car was slipping in and out of gear and revving high. I believe it was because I had tranny fluid leaking. I bought some gunk stuff to plug the hole... filled it up and seems much better. However it is now making some odd sounds. Also, if I don't drive it for a few days.. then put it in drive it feels completely stuck (in drive and reverse. Then if I rev it hard it gets "unstuck" and start driving. It will then drive but it drives a little funny. Anyone have an idea what this could be?

It's probably from the gunk stuff you put in. Transmissions like clean fluid. Flush the trans, maybe more than once and put a new filter kit in. That way you can also fix the leak if it was coming from the pan gasket. Make sure you use Mercon V.
