Ford Taurus transmission

Asked by Jul 02, 2017 at 11:22 AM about the 2001 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 01 Taurus has 220k on it i just picked it up for a
great deal and it runs nice but the transmission will
often slam into gear, some times slips once the very
first time when I initially take off. I guess the
transmission was flushed around 160k but I didn't
have it then and not sure when it started acting up
but seems like inclines and declines  make the
shifting much worse especially down hill. I try to
drive it nicely in hopes it will last as long as possible
but if there's anything I could do or if u know what
causes this any replies would be greatly
appreciated!

220K miles out of a Ford transmission is good considering it is original. They usually last around 140K. Slipping and banging means you need a rebuild, so limp it along like you are doing.
