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??
