I actually need car help....
My college friend (girl) drives an old 1990 Ford Taurus with 116,000 miles on it. The car was maintained and looks rather new but there is a problem that I'm hoping one of you can solve. When you put the car in drive it does not really engage...in other words, when you step on the gas the RPMs go up and it does not go anywhere. When you gas the hell out of it then it catches lightly and goes about 5 miles per hour. The reverse drives fine. I guess the tranny is shot? Would this be hard for my brother to replace if he is a VW/AUDI technician?
Any info on slipping transmissions is highly appreciated. Worth to fix?
