BTW, if you can still drive the car, take it to a dedicated transmission shop. Most mechanics/shops don't have the tools to diagnose a transmission problem.

Yes could you tell me where the shift solenoid is located on a 2000 Ford Ford Taurus automatic

That should’ve been on a 2004 Ford Taurus shift solenoid location thank you


It's internal to the transmission, located behind the valve body. Most places would check the circuit first to make sure that wasn't the problem before pulling a transmission pan to check the solenoid, or let a tranny shop run a computer diagnostic on it to locate which component isn't working. If a solenoid is dirty and sticking a flush and fluid change may be in order.
