Transmission 98 Taurus Sho 3.4

Asked by Oct 07, 2011 at 11:14 AM about the 1998 Ford Taurus SHO

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Is it possible to change out a transmission from a 96 SHO to a 98 SHO? Internet searches say yes as do some transmission guys but then some say no? Please help!!

5 Answers

yes it will interchange.

Thanks and that's what I was thinking after researching all day. Some say it may even be the solenoid itself giving me problems. This is what it does. I put it in gear and have to rev the engine before it will go. Then it rattles and sounds horrible. When I have to stop it kicks out of gear and I have to rev the engine to get it going again. Once it gets going it doesn't slip at all. A few months back I had the fluid changed and it drove great for a couple months before it started acting up again. That is why I think it may just be the solenoid. I LOVE MY SHO and I am not ready to put her out to pasture and this transmission I can get is super cheap and was hoping it would fit since I got laid off and can't afford to shell out too much right now.

yea tranny is shot.

Where can I get a cheap tranny for mine?

What kind of transmission came in the 98 sho
