    I was driving about 60 miles per hour and the van was running good and all at once it just quit pulling acted like the transmission went out but there is no leaks and its full of fluid and it's not burnt when the van is cold i measured the fluid level and then let it warm up qand the level went down just as is is suppose to. but i can't get it to pull.

    Same exact senario in my 2005 Freestar. Driving along at 70 MPH and it was like somebody slipped the trans into neutral. The engine revs fine but the van will not forward, no reverse. It's not slipping per say, it just sits there like it's in neutral.

    2006 freestar, mine did exactly the same thing! Working perfectly, slowed for a corner and as I started to acceerate the tranny was just done. Fortunately I had enough momentum to get to the other side of the road so I was out of the way. I was in middle of four lane highway!!! And the question was not vague if it has happened to you ??

Transmission failures in your van are common, in fact they are so common that the transmission used I believe has a class action law suit against it, but that is not for sure, if you are under 100,000 miles go back to the Ford dealer and request factory assistance even if the warranty has expired, I worked for Ford for 20 years and I know if you are nice but persistent they will help you most times, One question I am still a little unsure by what you mean by it won't pull, do you think it is the transmission? is it slipping, is there a possibility this could be a lack of power engine problem? If you could clarify this a little more that would be great, thanks.

1996 villager vg30e distributor won't turn, gear inside engine does not turn

You have defective camshaft drive timing belt (also runs the distributor). Pull the front cover off the engine and take a look. This is a free running engine and the broken belt will cause no damage to the engine valves in this make, it is a different story in other models like the Maxima.

My car wont start

If it won't crank, the battery could have failed or you could have a faulty connection between the battery and starter.

2006 check engine light, 2.7 liter

  • If your check engine light is on then there is an active fault code in the computer that needs to be pulled in order to see what caused the light and how best to fix the problem. You can go to any major parts store and have the code[s] pulled for free. Write them down and post them for me to assist you further. You won't know the reason for the light until the code[s] are pulled and thus no diagnosis can begin until then.

My AC on my 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 does not turn on when knob is turned on.

I was having the same issue on my 2006 2500 cummins. The a/c worked fine untill all of a sudden it quit. The a/c compressor would cycle 3 times in about 15 seconds then the clutch would not engage. If you turned the a/c off then back on it would go thriugh that same 3 cycle thing again and then not do anything after that. Here is what I found out, The a/c clutch was going out and it was pulling to much current causing the controle module to abort the request to pull in the a/c cluch. I wired in a relay between the controle mod and the clutch and it ran fine untill the clutch went all the way out. I ended up replacing the the commpressor w/clutch. So far so good.
