Anyone have a diagram that shows where the tcc is in the trans?? 96 trans
It might be next to the starter....
It is under the side cover on the outside of the valvebody. It is unique in appearance.
Looks like this (see link). May have different color plug (Colour plug for our Canadian friends....)
I got it
As you are there and maybe want to do some others repairs, I put this for future questions.
-> Correct me Eric but blue plug are for 97, 98 and 99 SHO.
-> Greyish/pink plug (as seen here) are for 96 SHO (some 97 too IIRC ?) and SLO
Eric : Is it the same part number for SLO and SHO ? I'm looking at the part on pictures from both and they look very similar... Just to be sure he will replace with a good one.
96 SLO (normal Taurus)
Same parts for the solenoid's as you mentioned. Late 97 possibly, but 98-99 utilize a different resistance changing how the computer sees them. Not using the right part will ultimately lead to the computer throwing a code, but just needs to be swapped for the right part.
I think the split is between the first two years and the second two years.
96/97 got one style, 98/99 got the other ones.
I am unsure of the color, and indicated that in my post above. I am also unsure if different between SLO and SHO in similar years.
Ok, one thing is sure. If you got TCC solenoid with a blue plug for 96-97 trans, isn't good... normally.
But here, the '96 trans is going into a '98 car... not sure which one is good for...
At that point, your ECU just needs to match. If you have a '98+ go with the high resistance TCC. Otherwise if Pre-98, don't change a thing.
So I changed out the tcc already I confirmed with doug Lewis he said it would be fine
