It's a 2002 ford taurus. I checked Ford's website and found info with
the VIN Code. I found the ENGINE TYPE "U" is as VULCAN engine 3.0
liter V-6 OHV w/155 HP. But I can't locate the Transmission type or
name of it for this car.
Anyone know the transmission type/name for this car?
Or what is most likely the type/name of the Tranny?
thanks a bunch
What makes you think that? I have seen thousands Taurus' in fleet service
run to 200,000 miles that never had a tranny problem. If one does the
proper preventive maintenance most any vehicle can be run to 200K or more
Proper maintenance doesn't mean that a transmission will last for
300,000 km, however, as I demonstrated. Proper maintenance is necessary
for a vehicle or just its transmission to last a long time, but
sufficient, as shown in the case of the problem-prone AX4N and related
Or in other words, yes, the AX4N is prone to problems that regular
maintenance doesn't solve.
You certainly are entitled to your own opinion, no matter how convoluted it
may be. The fact is we did not have problems with that tranny on the
thousands of fleet cars we serviced and that was what I posted.
But as I recall you are one of those that seem to believe SUVs were "Prone"
to roll over because their center of gravity is an inch or so greater than
average, regardless of the physical facts to the contrary LOL
My opinion is not convoluted. It is simply that good maintenance does
not guarentee long life of any product, particularly transmissions that
are poorly designed or otherwise flawed.
I didn't say *you* did. However, other people did. I am really surprised
that any model of car had no problems. After all, you say every product
has a 2% defect rate. That would have to include transmissions.
Or to put it another way, I think you're full of crap and don't know
what your talking about.
Really? Well, I tend to believe the folks who know what they are doing,
such as those at the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration,
who study these sort of things for a living than a retired dealer who
has shown little ability to integrate new information as well as little
ability to make intelligent conclusions.
Here's an article from the LA Times about this:
I recommend that you search the NHTSA site if you wish to learn more
about this. Of course, your proven ability to comprehend anything is
low, but do your best.
In other words, you can't understand English, so even though what I am
saying is clear to a 1st grader, you call it "convoluted."
I am sorry that is the best you can do.
I hope you have a great day.
Based on just some of your previous post, Bush lied about WMDs, SUVs are
prone to roll over, gasket problems were cause by bad designs and the
biggest, Global Warning is cause by man, just to name a scant few. LOL
As to the last one search the Drudge report for "Not Evil Just Wrong" and
click on all of the videos at the end of the U tube shown there and expand
your knowledge on that subject, WBMA
Ya' right. Every one I mention IS a conspiracy, however. You simply chose
the believe the sources you have searched and refuse, or are incapable of
searching for opposing views, even when you have been directed to sources
that can expand your knowledge on a particular subject....., not smart.
