I believe starter brackets were discontinued in models after 1988. Did a piece break off an aluminum block? What do I do now?
Coolant keeps coming out of coolant tank and it spikes all the way up while I’m driveig drops back down but doesn’t overheat again, and the temp gauge never stays steady always goes from middle to cold.
Running along my ford taurus will suddenly stop running, when temperature gets over about 85 degrees. it will crank over but not start until it cools down or something. suddenly, after about 30 min. it will start like nothing was ever wrong. Runs good when cool out. I have replaced the ignition module twice, useing a ford product the last time.
O2 sensor bank 1 sensor 1 isn't working. Wanting to know where would it be located
1999 Ford Taurus. 165,000 miles. AX4S

About 15 month ago it developed a "funny" when shifting from 1st to 2nd. Hard to describe. More of a noise/sound. The gear shift would "over-hang", shift at the wrong speed with a funny noise (HummmmoFFF).

About 3 months ago the noise improved, but the shifting quality changed. Depending on how hard you accelerate, there is a "clunk" when going from 1st to 2nd.

Starting today I only have two gears. Reverse and 1st. If I leave the transmission in drive, when the 1st-to-2nd shift comes, the transmission drops out of gear (like it’s in neutral, engine revs, no transmission noise/no bang/no clunk, nothing, just engine revs).

If shift column select 1st gear, it stays in first.
No tranny noises.
Transmission oil level is correct.
Transmission oil and filter was changed 12 months ago.
Transmission oil is “Clear Pink”. Good color/no funny-burnt odor.
No codes are being set.

What is the problem? Valve Body?
