Question about 1992 Ford Ranger
I have a 1992 ford ranger xlt with a 3.0 liter engine. and a A4LD automatic trans. If I place the trans in overdrive from a stop the trans feels like it wants to go but will not. If I place it in drive I have perfectly operating trans. Once over 50 m.p.h. i can then shift the tranny into overdrive and it will engage the overdrive gear. once I come to a stop i have to place it back into the drive position to go again. Any ideas??????
Sounds like the shift kit is warn out in the transmission. The overdrive line may not be able to provide enough hydrolic pressure to engage the gears to move the truck. When you switch to regualr drive, that line is able to build the hydrolic pressure to engage the gears. At a certian speed (for the transmission, certian hydrolic pressure) there is enough pressure to engage the gears in overdrive, but go below that, and you have to start in drive again. If this is the case, there is no easy fix for that and I recomend taking it to a transmission shop to have your shift kit examined. Opening up an automatic transmission requires specalized tools, clean shop enviroment, and knowlage more then the average back yard machanic has.
