Transmission trouble ford taurus

Asked by Oct 28, 2014 at 02:37 PM about the 2000 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Need some advice on a 2000 ford taurus se I just recently bought. The car had been
sitting for about 2 years give or take. I had to put a fuel pump on and new battrery
and fluids. The car ran really good but the new problem i'm having is the transmission
it switches gears normal and runs fine. The problem l'm having is now it will not hold
trans fluid when you pour new fluid in it drains just about as quick. What i'm
wondering is are there a hose or something that could have dry rotten or will i have to
take the whole trans out. Any help to this ? would be great thanks

Hose or gasket. Get the car in the air so you can see where it is draining from. Never run the trans low on fluid, you will burn it up quick.
