I have a 1997 Ford Taurus SHO V8 and I want to know if the transmission is going bad or what? I have to warm the car up before I drive it. It pulls very bad, especially when topping a hill. The does not drive freely it seems like its being forced to drive. The gears are getting stuck and the car is not shifting out at all. It gets stuck and I be on the highway tryna push it but it wont go pass 30 mph. I bought the car about a week ago from other owners so I haven't had the oil changed or anything. Should I sell it? or can this problem be fixed without me paying so much out of pocket cause I can not afford to put too much work into it? Help me to understand whats going on and can you please break it down for me cause I am a woman and some stuff I dont understand

My 97 Taurus won't go in to 2nd gear unless let it warm up for about 10 minutes. As you drive it in first gear it tries to go in to 2nd gear but never makes it and you find yourself coasting along until your speed is under 10 MPH then it clicks back in to 1st gear. This happens until the car is warm them it seems to operate fine. One other thing is that every now and again the cr will not start. If I put the car in N then it will start up. Or I can rock the car back and forth and them try to start it and it starts right up. Stange?

Did you ever solve this? I have the exact same symptoms.

I have a 97 ford Taurus 3.0 OHV having transmission problems also. I was driving home today and suddenly lost all my forward gears but 1st. The vehicle will move through all the other gears fine and catch in each one (P,R,N,OD and D) but in D/OD the only gear I have is 1st and car will not go above 25 MPH. Change out neutral safety switch but that didn't help. Any thoughts???

You have to scan the computer for codes before you start changing more parts. Auto Zone will do it for free i think.or you can buy an obd2 code reader for 30 bucks.
