The AXOD transaxle has 17 bolts to retain its fluid pan. The electronic shifting and torque converter controls were integrated with the Taurus’s electronic control module for smoother shifts. In addition to the name change, improvements in the lubrication of the gearset and capacity upgrades were made.

A centrifugal piston assembly was implemented in the intermediate clutch position to improve 1st—2nd foord 2nd—1st shift quality and an increase in the clutch’s durability was made on some models. High energy friction materials were also introduced. The data plate code for this transmission is “L.

In general, however, difficulty shifting from neutral to overdrive, OD to N, N to R, and R to N is most likely caused by a stretched shifter cable. If the vehicle is allowed to “roll back” onto the pawl with heavy force such as when parking on a steep inclinethe pawl may break off or seize the gears so that either the vehicle rolls away, or when the owner starts the vehicle and attempts to put the vehicle in gear, they are unable to move the shift lever fore Park.


This creates a compound issue fod which the shifter linkage or cable can break due to excess force. The vehicle’s owner guide states the appropriate procedure is to engage the parking brake before shifting to Park, rather than relying on the pawl, as the pawl is a last line of defense to prevent the vehicle from moving unintentionally. If the parking pawl breaks off or bends, serious transaxle damage can occur.
