1997 Ford Taurus QuestionsRefine by vehicle
started running rough like when idleing and when driving didnt have as much power. then a little white smoke from engine . then few days later started smelling like gas. and is losing even more power now.
car runs fine from 0 to 35 mi.per hr on long trip on the frway. at 60 to 70 mi.per hr running for 2hrs it over heats and i have to stop
It just reves the engine. I have to turn car off then back on again to make it go. Maybe twice a month if I were to guess.

So I accidentally hit a curb pretty bad and the next day I was driving down an interstate. When I was about 60 miles into the drive my RPM was fluctuating between 3-4 so I pulled over and the next thing I know is it is smoking every where and all my trans fluid leaked out.
I had it towed to a mechanic and they are being very sketchy and I have a few questions.
They said that the fluid lines are fine. Also they said that when looking at it they saw a few pieces broken off from a seal in the transmission and it looked like is was to a 4x4 screen and gasket. They said they are pretty positive the trans is not cracked and all it could be is the oil pan and a gasket.
They told me that they had to take my entire transmission out to fix this problem and then they have to put it back in which would cost $640 just to take it out and put it back in. This did not include the parts that need to be fixed.
I feel as if I am getting ripped off and I am a college student and can't afford this. I am wondering if what they are saying to me is 100% accurate or if they are just trying to get money out of me.
I have heard different things from different people and just would like some more opinions.
until you spray starter fluid in the throttle throat and starts up and then runs fine. Turn off engine will start back up but after it sit 10-15 mins have to repeat process. Can you guild me to the problem. Thanks
