Question about 1983 Ford Econoline
My van wont change gear from first to second unless its selected manually. to find 3rd i have to accellerate to 80kmh then wiggle the stick from second to drive possition and back untill it engages. Whats wrong and how do i fix it.
It sounds like it could be a governor problem the tailshaft housing will have to be removed to access it. the trans does not have to removed for this. there is a snap ring that holds the governor on the shaft check to see if the valve in the governor is sticking
