What i would try first is a transmission flush. not just a transmission service where 3-4 quarts of fluid is replaced but all of the fluid. you could do this yourself and at the same time replace the filter. drop the pan and change the filter, then remove the bell housing plate and locate the drain plug on the torque converter. allow all fluid to drain. reinstall drain plug and pan, and fill with fluid. there are also some after market transmission additives that can restore some of the original ooomphh. good luck

Could be a transmission problem or something as simple as bad spark plugs.
The engine is under the most load when RPM is low and you are trying to accelerate, such as when it upshifts.
You should have the computer checked for trouble codes and hopefully that will point you in the right direction to test.
If the spark plugs have more than 50,000 miles of wear you might start with replacing them.

Check your fuel vapor recovery system, your van has unusual set up, and the effect is RAW fuel gets purged, rather than vapor.
The dead giveaway test is does the issue happen on light acceleration? Does it stop if you let off the throttle? Can you accelerate harder and "get past" the issue?

If you drive it a few days like that ,you will have a $3000 repair bill

instead of a $332.20 Solenoid Trans Pack, I put in my 2004

Any time you have, any trans issues,you stop driving it immediately
You never drive again, until diagnosed and repaired

I used to own a trans repair shop.

You will have to add labor to yours.

Rear end slipping?


Differentials are direct-drive devices -- they cannot slip.

This really sounds like erratic shifting taking place right at the shift point. Gentle acceleration is the trickiest shift for an automatic. When accelerating harder, the transmission shifts more abruptly, which is a much easier shift to complete.

Oil leak


you must have the engine cleaned (externally), after that you may figure where the oil is coming from. Also it sounds like your transmission is slipping, check the transmission oil level and make sure the oil leak isnt coming from the transmission. Driving the vehicle with slipping trans will cause severe damage. Hopefully this helps!!

'94 Ford Ranger XLT Manual Transmission Problem?


For the information given, and assuming forr a 94 it has a bunch of miles, I would bet on a slipping clutch along with a pressure plate that is glazed over. I doubt the transfer case, that's just a chain drive mechanism with nothing much to slip in there. In 2 wheel drive the transfer case drives pretty much straight through and shouldn't add to the problem.

If the clutch has over 80K on it, replace and resurface the pressure plate at the same time.

Does the clutch pedal have about 1/4" of play before it begins to engage? If not adjust the clutch play 1st and see if that helps.

Let me know if you have a further symptoms to share.
