Why would the automatic transmission not work in forward gears on a 1998 Ford Taurus?

AnswerThe transmission is damaged, You will need to take the vehicle to a ford dealership to have the transmission replaced, or fixed. 9 times out of 10 it is cheaper and more reliable to just replace the transmission. My 1996 Ford Taurus Had the same problem in 1997 then again in 1998. Taurus transmissions tend to tear up easily if abused. Make sure that your not grinding gears. Make a full stop then change gears when backing, or vise versa. Also, Check the Transmission fluid levels at least once a month. Also make sure that whenever parking the vehicle that you use the parking brake. The automatic transmission should NOT be used as a braking device!Answer:The most common problem with this transmission is the forward control valveit cost about $10.00 and 3 hours to put in.--Formatted--

Where are sliding gears used?

Sliding Gears in a transmission are straight-tooth spur gears with a taper (also known as a lead) to make engaging easier. Helical gears are mostly used in a transmission because spur gears produce gear noise and have a great strain on the teeth of the gear since only one tooth can be in contact at any given time. But because helical gears cannot be taken out of mesh, spur gears are used for the reverse gear because reverse spins the opposite way and cannot be in constant mesh.
