We have a 1994 Taurus with a 3.8 V6 rusting in the driveway! Wll be another 1800.00 to fix, one year ago we spent 1300.00 kicking and screaming! What a piece of crap, why do we keep it? It is paid for! What do you do with 16k worth of junk?

I have a 1994 Ford Taurus LX that I bought in April 2001. I had no problems with it until May 2002, when I went to slow down and it would buck severely. I took it to the garage, they replaced all the filters, air & fuel pump. It continued to do it. Took it back, they put in a new transmission. It still does it. Between the two repairs, it has cost over $1500. The garage don't know what it is. Anyone have any ideas?

I bought my 1994 Taurus in 1995 when it had 21k miles on it.

Just two weeks ago the transmission went out for the first time and I'm thrilled! Why? My Taurus has 238k miles on it.

It has been the best car I have ever owned.

I have never replaced the muffler or the alternator on that car. I am a satisfied customer!

Our 94 Taurus Wagon also started to have shifting problems in the auto transmission. It turned out that the speed sensor had to be changed.

This car has been nothing but problems and I can't wait to get rid of it.

I had a 95 Taurus that I bought with only 9,000-mile on it in 96. Today that car has 177,000-miles on it.

Only Problems are

Freon Leak-slow Recaharge every 2-summers

1-Alternator (140,000-miles)

1-Exhaust muffler (125K)

Dash Lights burned out-not all, but most have. Not sure when.

I have serviced the car by the book and driven the car fairly normally.

3.0 Regular engine and 4-speed automatic are still performing like new.

Trading car off due to rust and I am getting a brand new 05 Taurus before Ford stops building them.

Excellent cars. Great MPG also.

I have a 96 ford taurus and when I drive it, it stops and does not move. I turn off the car and when I start it up it then moves. I was told that it was my transmission that needs to be replaced. But if it is something else I would like to know what it could be.

Hi guys, I have a 1994 Ford Taurus GL. I got the car about a year and a half ago when it had about 96,000 miles on it. It now has 130,000.

The only things I've had replaced were the water pump, the A/C compressor, and the serpentine belt.

I put some tint in it, a sound system and 20'rims. Before getting the rims I got the transmission serviced. Now I'm having problems with the shifting. It seems to have something to do with the rpm being too low to move the wheels. When I start it and put it into gear, the car won't move. When I press the accelerator and rev it a little, it then wants to move. It's weird. And when it's cold out, it works like new. Someone help!!!
