Transmission Not Go Into Gear problem #4
The car is a 1997 Ford Taurus. "service engine soon" light came on while driving, had a mechanic run computer diagnostics, codes p0734 & p0761 read on two different occasions. Mechanic took a closer look at the transmission and said it did not have 4th gear and recommended it be rebuilt. I had contacted 2 Ford dealers before I knew that it was a major transmission problem and they said that nothing would be covered because I was out of warranty by 1,000 miles. I think that there is a manufacturing defect in the transmission. I contacted jaspors the manufacturer of transmissions and it is a known problem that a clip or selonoid is breaking and they have done 6 updates to this particular transmission. A transmission expert said that the transmission needs to be compeletly rebuilt. I had no knowledge that anything was wrong with the car until something triggered the engine light. One dealer offered my to sell me the extended warranty and the they would cover it.

The car was a 1997 Ford Taurus. The VIN of this vehicle is 1FALP52U7V_.

When I asked Ford if alot of Taurus' have this problem they refused to release that information. I think I have a roght to know since I am an owner of a Taurus and I still owe a very large sum of money on this car.

There are so many people who are stuck with this type if car with a bad transmission it is horrible, a multi-million dollar CO. Will not make good on these cars they know are bad.
