Ford did diagnostic. Got error codes: p0733 & p0745. They're saying to replace or rebuild transmission. Said the fluid was dirty & had metal in it. Do you think it needs replacing?

Its a Ford with 176k+ miles on it. Don't act surprised is the transmission is bad. You might as well get ready for motor repairs too.

Truck still moves with clutch pressed in.


I had this problem on my 2600i Mazda.

Check your clutch resevoir--if this is low or empty this is the problem--there is a leak. The leak is usually the clutch cylinder (has a bleeder valve) which is bolted to the transmission. Follow the metal lines from the reservoir down by the tranny should be a bolt or two and a bleeder valve ($20 or so). Bleed like you would your brakes.

Hope this helps--

2002 ford explorer 4.0 v-6 transmission not shifting between 2nd and 3rd gear

The engine and transmission in this cars drivetrain are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s)

98 ford explorer high idle

Its either a faulty idle air control valve or a faulty fuel pressure regulator.My bet would be the idle air control valve. If you pull the vacuum hose off the fuel regulator or the map sensor and fuel runs out then the regulator is bad.If you replace the control valve then you have to reset the computer.

I have a 1997 Ford F-150 Lariat, and when pulling a trailer it makes a chattering noise when the gas pedal is pressed down to pick up speed. When going up a hill it will not go passed 40 mph and starts to...

If tranny is manual shift you may have a bearing and or bad gear. Try changing tranny fluid. Check manual for correct fluid may use tranny fluid rather than gear oil. I recommend using Royal Purple fluid or gear oil. This very expensive but will slicken up the shifting and extend bearing and gear life.

1988 chev trans takes high rpm to shift from 1st to 2nd and some times it wont down shift when you slow down and hit the gas again

Check the adjustment of the transmission T.V. cable. Sometimes they also stick. Try driving it at 30. Shift to Neutral, stab the gas pedal to the floor quickly a couple of times. Then shift back to drive. Then see if it shift normal.

1989 Bronco 5.8 the transmission shift points RPM too high

One of the first things I'd do is check the throttle valve cable that runs from your throttle linkage at side of throttle body, and goes from there down to transmission, and make sure it's moving free and releasing as well when off the gas . Take some penetrating spray like WD-40, and get it moving free, and make sure you look close at linkage where cable attaches at transmission, and spray it well, and get it moving good. Apply emergency brake, and block wheels to be safe, and watch what cable does, as you have someone push gas pedal down to floor slowly and then let up on it. That cable should pull a linkage one way when gas pedal pushed to floor, then return when pedal is let up. After they let it up, see if you can move linkage back any further by hand then it came back on its own, just to see if it's hanging up slightly, which would cause your later shift problem. Keep applying WD-40 and working it until your sure it's as free as it will get, then wipe WD-40 off as much as you can, and apply some "white lithium" spray grease or similar, to help protect it from seizing again. Once that cable and linkages are moving good and free, you will probably notice shifting problem is gone, or at least better, but if not, there are adjustment points on that cable if you look closely. If you do need to adjust, and can't figure it out, get back to us and we'll help. Good Luck.

Trouble in shifting

I am having trouble understanding what you are saying but it sounds like you are saying the transmission shift points are too high. (Holds the gears too long, RPM's too high before it shifts) RIght? Check to see if you have vacuum to the modulator at Idle. If yes replace the modualtor.

1996 Ford E250 makes rough rumble noise on inclines or when speed

I'm thinking it may be the differential (rear end). With that many miles on the vehicle, it would not be uncommon for the u joints or differential to make noise due to increased tolerances from normal wear. I'd look into that. You may be surprized.

Good Luck and hope this helps.
