Took vehicle to another dealer, and they put a strainer in the transmission, but it did not help the problem. If those check out ok then check your ground to starter and frame ground wires for rust and corrosion, if that checks out ok. To troubleshoot these types of issues, check the actual solved problems with these types of issues. Both are very important and must be present for the car to start. Repair would require the replacement of the transmission or overhaul. The dealer stated that they would install new coil shields under the warranty for free, but will not repair the coil spring. My son just received his driver's permit and has recently been driving my 1999 Ford Taurus.

He had me drive another 1999 Taurus on the dealers used car lot, and it did the same thing. Go to your local parts store and have them test your battery and alternator, if you don't have a test or, they can do this with the parts still on the car and load test them. The vehicle speed sensor also had to be replaced. Transmission gear was in reverse when vehicle accelerated backwards, htting a pole. They all have a vent cap.
All agreed that the problem is major mechanical failure within the transmission. He had me drive another 1999 Taurus on the dealers used car lot, and it did the same thing. If that cap sticks, pressure builds up and pushes the dipstick out and it pushes fluid out the fill tube. No problems with the transmission until recently, and the fluid has remained clear, so I have never changed it out. I planned to give him this car and then purchase another car when he turns 16.
Our car has been in the shop 4 times in less than 2 months. There had been no warning sounds or lights to indicate that there was any kind of problem. Could a abs wheel sensor cause this? How can I fix this? Now i am having issues with the front end. Take the wires out of the connector and clean them good then bend them a bit tighter put them back in. Tow truck driver noted fluid on the right side and on tire as he pulled it up to drop it off at a tranny shop.
I hope this makes any sense. The current and failure mileages were 140,000. If it's low, then such problems occurs. They stick, pressure pushes the dipstick up and it looses fluid. The trans fluid and filter should be changed at 30,000 mile intervals, regardless of color.
Car sat without much use for about 1 year though. The corrosion damages it enough and eats it away making it bigger wotn help. I went another 80 miles without losing fluid and the tranny seemed fine. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should! The trans fluid and filter should be changed at 30,000 mile intervals, regardless of color. Your help would be greatly appreciated as this 96 has only 60K miles and is in great shape otherwise.
My vehicle was totaled in this crash. They all have a vent cap. It was clear and seemed not to be low, but later learned I should have had the engine on for it to read properly. The vehicle jerks very bad when going from park to drive which I feel could cause an accident. Go to your local parts store and have them test your battery and alternator, if you don't have a test or, they can do this with the parts still on the car and load test them. Ford's famous Taurus continues to lead the industry with its high-class affordability, so getting the same value out of your transmission repair means choosing high-quality components from a trusted supplier.
I have to keep my foot on the gas and it stays at a constant speed. I put it all back together, the only thing that has changed is now it seems to be even more intermittant. I haven't driven it for safety and inconvenience reasons. I decided to start the car and see what it would do. When I started out I heard a thunk and the transmission wouldn't work. Vehicle will lunge forward mostly at the first start of the day. Intermitten faults are tough but if you stick with me we will get it.
Said it could be the main seal?? What is the most likely cause? It is shifting smooth again, and after about a week the leak slowed way down, but a couple months later and the leak is much worse than ever. Some months ago, or maybe a year, it started leaking fluid very slowly. If that cap sticks, pressure builds up and pushes the dipstick out and it pushes fluid out the fill tube. During this entire incident, I could not see anything through the windshield and was not aware what the car was hitting or what direction it was moving. I got a leak, but mine is a different story. Most appears behind the left front wheel, but there is some leaking on the right side too. We will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing.
