If a 1989 Ford Taurus automatic is not shifting from 1st to 2nd and does not have much power what might be the problem?

It could very well be the catalatic convertor on the engine. Have it checked out.

I have a 2002 Moutianeer, and not to long ago had a problem with the shifting. It would struggle, then shift real hard into 2nd. I had to have a tramsmission overhaul done. Thank God it was under warrenty.

The shifter linkage might be jammed or disconnected. The shifting sensor, that detects if the brake is engaged, may be malfunctioning.

A Dodge Stratus shifting problem might begin because of dirty transmission fluid. This problem could also be caused by damage to the transmission due to wear and tear or low fluid.

A 2000 Jeep automatic that is not shifting correctly after it gets hot might have something wrong with the speed sensor that is located in the transmission. The speed sensor tells the transmission what gear to shift into at certain speeds.

An automatic transmission might be slow shifting from first to second because of low transmission fluid. You might also have damaged the gears in the transmission at the area between first and second.
