How to Flush the Transmission Fluid in a Ford Taurus – The automatic transmission in the Ford Taurus relies on Mercon V transmission fluid to help the transmission shift hydraulically, and to prevent undue wear on the internal moving parts through lubrication. Just like engine oil, the transmission fluid breaks down over time and ultimately will lose its ability to protect the transmission from damage. Performing a transmission flush properly requires a special flush machine. It is best to leave this job to a professional, factory-trained transmission technician.
