Patch transmission hose

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

Not a good idea, especially on one of these cars, tranny problems run high on the Taurus line. I would suggest replacing the tranny hoses and bypassing the cooler in the radiator and installing a good cooler in front. Heat is the killer of all automatics.
