I have owned two Taurus', one with a
3.0 and one with 3.8L. The auto with
the 3.0 was a great car. The engine
and transmission ran great. Then I
purchased a Taurus with the big 3.8L in
1999 with 70k miles on it. I have had
transmission problems from day one.
The orginal transmission was repaired
three times and replaced last year and
now it is having problems. Buy the 3.0
stay clear of the 3.8.
