Sad thing is this customer has taken this to multiple mechanics-no one can solve this including Ford. We are only doing this out of their desperation to fix theirs-engine idles excellent transmission great-shifts fine when hot. Torque converter shows good on data working fine so is the tcc solenoid. I know this is something simple and I will feel like an idiot when I find it. - westerntransmissions
Been there a bunch of times, and more on the way i am sure. Wish i could help more but you have covered all that i can suggest!
I am sure it will be simple, but weird too. I thought the wiggle test was for sure going to show the problem was eng. movement. - pushrod
I am just starting to have a stalling problem on a 98 Taurus, 3.0 L. Never had the problem before. It rained last night, car started fine but every time I put it into gear it stalled. I left it alone and got a ride to work. Tonight all seems fine. It does have a broken motor mount, and I noticed wetry ask about a broken motor mount. How is this related? - togey
I found the problem-it was in the transmission-a piece of bearing in the valve body pump dropped on top of the tcc valve causing it to stall out. Completely scored the pump and shaft too. - westerntransmissions
