This will sound odd, but if the fuel filter hasn't been changed in a long time replace it and check that air filter isn't clogged up. If this isn't causing it you can try changing the fluid if it's been neglected and add TransX.

Your transmission fluid contain water,thats why the colour of the fluid changed to pink.And of such the clutch is slipping causing the engine to reve up before shifting - Check transmission cooler.

SOURCE: f150 transmission neutralizes when shifts to overdrive

I have that exact same truck and transmission and My Transmission did the exact same thing about a year ago and there was some kind of snap ring inside the transmission that broke. I originally thought it had to be an electirical problem because the truck shifted fine until OD or if i turned OD off. The 4r70w is a light transmission and i would suggest you have a shift kit put in and they make a heavier kit to beef it up.. Sorry its probably not the new you were looking for.

SOURCE: 1992 accord (d4) light stays on and only have 2nd and overdrive

Same problem, only 2nd and 4th gears (92 ex, auto with 175k). Missed diagnosed by previous mechanics, replaced engine coolant sensor. Couldn't figure that one out? Went back because problem reoccured within a week and now much worse than before. They diagnosed as bad TCM this time and want over $700 to fix, in addition to the other $300 I spent. Said a resister was burnt on the board. Did not believe them. I pulled the board myself (located under the pass. floor mat, disconnect battery, remove four screws and pull the wiring out and open it up). Looked at board myself did not see anything wrong, but does not mean that it isn't bad. Research on the web said that it might be a bad release solenoid on the shift handle? It's located in the center console underneath the plastic covering near the park brake. That checked out ok. So I ordered a TCM from allcomputerresources.com ($155) should be here in a couple of days. I hope this helps me and you. Good luck.

The Transmission shifts very hard after the first shift. Check engine light is on as well as the Green overdrive light blinks off and on. Speed sensor was cleaned and even replaced.


Your on the right track. Have you scanned the PCM, what codes did you get? If not and you changed the vehicle speed sensor,(VSS) did you check the (OSS) output shaft speed sensor, it will cause torque converter lock up and hard shifting and that pesky OD light flashing. I have also found that clutch packs inside auto tranny's dry out. Ford and some aftermarket companies sell a fluid that will recondition the clutch packs.

Ford Ranger 98'Splash don't shift 3rd and


you will need to connect it ti a scanner to confirm but it sounds like your solenoid (there is a solenoid that controls those gears inside your tranny) the part is actually cheap and should take no time to replace. the cost comes in a way of replacing the tranny fluid that will be lost.

98 Grand Cherokee Transmission problem: At hwy speed transmission surges or shifts down RPM'S jump 200 to 300 RPM. Only does it when Transmission is fully warmed up.


check oil level first, than check the electrical connector on the tranny. This sound like the transmission shifts from overdrive to drive. Check the wiring from the transmission to ECU and other items. If than happen again, check the shift cable, kick down cable. If that doesn't help, let the tranny be checked at a servicestation.

TRANSMISSION WILL NOT SHIFT


You need to do a full service of the tranny. You need a filter change,and a fell flush of the tranny. Make sure you are using the right tranny fluid for it as well.
