Ford Taurus auto trans issues?

Unread post by kaden09 » Thu Jun 20, 2013 9:40 pm

my 2006 ford Taurus is having periodic shifting problems but when I take it out of over drive and run it in drive for minute and than put it back in overdrive seems to shift fine.

when does the shifting problem occur and what does it do? shift hard, slip, go in and out of gear? is it every shift or only at highway speed? you may want to have the trans scanned for codes or pending codes. It may not even be a trans issue if you are having a misfire it could jerk the vehicle under light loads at highway speed.

Replacing the Catalytic converter(s) on a 1996 Windstar 3.8L

Unread post by segehrand » Thu Mar 30, 2017 8:14 pm

I am unable to find any online diagrams, pictures or instructions on how to replace the catalytic converter(s) on my 1996 Ford Windstar - 3.8L V6.
Also unsure as to what exactly to purchase because I am unable to find anything other then sales pitches. Any one know?

I think I have it figured out, kind of, but would like to have some more solid information to work with.

changing the converters should be just unbolt them. Aftermarket converters sometimes are just cut the old converter out and weld in a new one. Check the emissions tag in the hood area to tell you if you need a cat that is california compliant
