96 ford taurrus trannie slipes. could filter be the problem, or will i need to replace/
When the.transmission starts to slip there are no fixes that are easy. Rebuild or replace are really your only two options.
Agreed. You can change the fluid and filter first to see if it helps, but you might be wasting your time and money. Time for a rebuild.
First thing to do look at fluid, does it smell burnt is it a browny colour? If so its burnt. It should be a red colour.
Unfortunately, Ford had issues with Taurus transmissions in the 90's. ALL Ford Taurus's from 1996-99 are known for transmissions going out and eventually they all need a rebuild at around 120,000 miles, some sooner and some later, so in your case a rebuild is in your future real soon it it's slipping. AAMCO here you come. Kenny.
