Can the automatic transmission get damaged over time by habitual shifting into Drive before the car comes to a full stop after backing up?

Not really unless your doing it at 20 mph. It is somewhat hard on the U-joints, however.

A good plan for backing up data is to setup an automatic backup to an external drive or cloud based storage on a regular basis. This will ensure that no data is lost and can easily be recovered.

if screeching only when backing up, it sounds like you have a problem in reverse gear in transmission or you have a problem with loose pinion in differential

If it is a standard transmission, you would need to slowly let out the clutch while backing up.

AnswerThe transmission is damaged, You will need to take the vehicle to a ford dealership to have the transmission replaced, or fixed. 9 times out of 10 it is cheaper and more reliable to just replace the transmission. My 1996 Ford Taurus Had the same problem in 1997 then again in 1998. Taurus transmissions tend to tear up easily if abused. Make sure that your not grinding gears. Make a full stop then change gears when backing, or vise versa. Also, Check the Transmission fluid levels at least once a month. Also make sure that whenever parking the vehicle that you use the parking brake. The automatic transmission should NOT be used as a braking device!Answer:The most common problem with this transmission is the forward control valveit cost about $10.00 and 3 hours to put in.--Formatted--http://www.taurusclub.com/forum/lofiversion/index.php/t43838.html

== == Could be the transmission, or a front brake is sticking on.

On my 1997 Grand Cherokee Limited, you could feel the slip - especially after backing up first thing in the morning and then shifting into Drive.My dad has a 1995 and he had slip issues too.The fix was simple for both Jeeps - check the transmission fluid level. As little as one pint of lost fluid can make the transmission start slipping. It seems like such a small amount given the capacity of the transmission but filling to the correct level fixed the slip on both Jeeps.Do not over fill.It worked for me and might not for you - but it is a quick and inexpensive first thing to check.

if it does not lock in while going forward then try backing up a few feet....It is a ford...lol

The switch that prevents the starter from engaging when the transmission is not in Park or Neutral (and also turns on the backing lights when the vehicle is in reverse) is often found on the transmission case. Look there for an item that has a wiring harness that goes up to the engine compartment. There should be several wires.

Bleeder screw for clutch is at the slave cylinder, on the bell housing of the Transmission. The bleeder for the brakes is on the calipers, and on the backing plate of the rear drum brakes

It will act like it's constipated(plugged up)when backing up.Sometimes it will feel like you have transmission problems,as it will overrev and not shift right.

On the back of the stud there is a backing, some have little locks that need to be squeezed to release the backing from the stud, others are just a nylon backing held on with a friction fit so just pull on the backing and it should come off.
