What makes rebuilding or replacing the Transmission on a 1996 Ford Taurus more difficult than rebuilding or replacing transmissions on other cars?

The transmission in all Tauruses (the original AXOD

transmission, and the later AX4S and AX4N) is a front wheel drive

transaxle. For starters, in order to remove that transmission from

the vehicle, the engine MUST be supported by a brace and the FRAME

must be removed. Secondly. the transmission and the differental on

that transaxle are housed in the same case. which makes it that

much more complex to work on. Third, the pump and that valve body

are ONE assembly.

Does this answer your question??
