One of the most "popular" is the Transmission Range Sensor (TRS), formerly known as the neutral safety switch (NSS).
The TRS is known to fail and cause all sorts of very weird and unusual symptoms - kinda like gremlins infesting the electrical systems.
See "Related Questions" below for more about the TRS
Oh yeah, there's the TCC so, but you don't hear so much about that one...
No. 2000 Taurus and Sable are the only interchange.
where is the transmission speed sensor located on a 2005 ford taurus
The critical piece of information is missing from the original question: which sensor of the dozens of sensors in the typical Taurus / Sable
It will fit in the same year Taurus and Sable, nothing else.
On the transmission.
The speed sensor on a 1999 Taurus is on top of the transmission. It is located directly under the number 2 cylinder.
No, a Generation 2 (1992-1995) Taurus/Sable Windshield will NOT fit a Generation 3 (1996-1999) Ford Taurus/Sable.
its located just above the transmission pan usually on the back side of transmission
No, it's on top of the transaxle very close to the linkage to gear lever.
There can be as many as 6 speed sensors. The transmission has two speed sensors, one called a VSS and one called an OSS. If the vehicle has anti-lock brakes, each wheel hub will have it's own speed sensor.
AnswerThis is going to sound off-the-wall, but replace the Transmission Range Sensor / neutral safety switch.The electrical system is being messed with by this sensor.See "Related Questions" below for more about this not-expensive and relatively-easy fix.
No - the Taurus-Sable was significantly redesigned in 1996.
Most likely you have a problem with the torque converter or the valve body in the transmission. If you have around 85,000-120,000 miles on your Sable/Taurus, this is a common issue. Having a transmission specialist look at the vehicle is an expensive but necessary pitfall.
My 1995 Mercury Sable with 3.0L has that trany in it. So I'd say yes
Unfortunately, no. The 1991 Taurus / Sable had a one-of-a-kind transmission. They are only intertchangable with the same year and car family. There are some early 1992 cars that have the same transmission as the 1991. A transmission shop could give you more information.
AnswerThere are two sensors on this transmission. One is the speed sensor. The other is used by the computer to tell what gear it is in and if the transmission is slipping. I hope this helps you.See "Related Questions" below for more
(This answer Covers the "Generation 3" 1996-1999 Series Ford Motor Company Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable.)Common issues on these vehicles includeMalfunctioning Transmission*Headgasket Failure*Camshaft position sensor and syncronizer failure (Vulcan equipped models)**Transmission Range Sensor Failure**Sagging rear end*Fogging or "crazed" headlight housings*-**Clogged Heater Core*Hard to access sparkplugs on the Duratec/DOHC engine* Denotes problems due to lack of maintenance.**Denotes problems incurred due to age.
In the 1996-1999 Generation 3 Ford Taurus/Mercury Sable, there are several modules that are utilized in transmission control. The PCM, or "Powertrain Control Module" is responsible for all engine and transmission functions. This is the computer that manages all data to and from the engine and transmission. The Transmission Range Sensor (TRS, Range Module, NSS, Neutral Safety Switch, among other names), determines which gear the user has selected and tells the PCM what to do as a result. The VSS, or "Vehicle Speed Sensor" displays the speed on the speedometer but is also responsible for transmission performance. And on SHO model Tauruses, the ABS Wheel Sensors are instead used to display speedometer information, as well as control the transmissions shifting habits.
The speedometer is driven by the vehicle speed sensor. See "Related Questions" below for more about where to find it, and how to replace one.
1995 Taurus - Sable front speakers are 6.5 and back are 6 x 9
switch sensor located next to the transmission
AnswerFor fluid recommendation, refer to the Owners ManualAND the Ford Technical Service Bulletin - TSB linked below. For all model years Taurus / Sable, the TSB basically states that Mercon V is now the specified transmission fluid.See "Related Questions" below for a discussion on transmission fluids, including a Ford technical service bulletin on the topic.
Most likely a loose connection or bad sensor it is electronic
