check the motor mounts, they are probably broken. Front mount located under the rad side mounts located at front and rear of engine on the front wheel wells. Watch how much they move when the engine is turned over. There should be little or no movement. Anything other than that requires that you change the mounts.

The engine does. Sometimes the wind can be behind it too

I believe that would be the 3.2 liter DOHC V6 engine that was used with the automatic( from 1993 to 1995 inclusive ) unless you mean the 2010 Taurus SHO with the 3.5 L -V6 - twin turbo engine

According to a drawing I was looking at in the 2009 Ford Taurus Owner Guide : It shows the automatic transmission fluid level dipstick as being between the engine air filter housing and the engine , towards the FRONT of the engine compartment ( definately not where I would be looking )

There really aren't automatic or manual engines, but there are manual and automatic transmissions - gear boxes. Automatics don't need shifting as you pick up speed going forward, but manuals do.
