My wifes 02 Taurus' tranny is going out I believe.
In 1st gear, the whole car shakes and shudders "REALLY" bad.
After 1st its okay.
I can be sitting with my foot on the brake in gear, and it will come and go(the shuddering) even without moving.
The tranny has 61,000(original) on it....it has never had a fluid change.
I'm changing it today, but I think I may be up sh1t creek.
Anyone have experience with the AX0D, AX4S, AX4N tranny's?

BTW, I still have Ford warranty left....if the tranny is shot, do you think they will still repair it, even though I've never changed the fluid?(except for today)

I don't know why I never changed it....I guess I just kept putting off for too long.

Anyone?

I think that the tranny fluid service was listed as one of the recommended services and you didn't do it, they might not honor the warranty. They may ask for service records and if you can't come up with anything and were supposed to have had something done at 30k or 45k or some other interval, you might be screwed. But then again, persistence may pay off. Check the car's manual to see when the tranny service is supposed to be done.
