1997 Taurus Transmission

Fordtech, please tell me what "obd2" is? If the computer stays in "failure mode " would that cause the transmission to slip or not shift?

These may seem like stupid questions, but I'm a lady with very little money, who knows very little about cars.

Please keep all posts on the same car together...use the REPLY button to do so. Otherwise continuity is lost.

OBDII = On Board Diagnostics, generation 2. Enhanced computer controls. Used from 1996 (in most cases) to the present.

Yes, trouble codes will cause the tranny to slip, it's electronicallly controlled. Use of a scanner is needed to properly clear OBDII codes after repair. Use the guidance given to you by me and others in replies to your original post.
