    dr_layinlow solution only works for slow engagement issues or shifting issues, it will not correct what u have going on, my experience is 30 years as a new car dealer technician.

Try changes the filter for the trany and put new trany oil in there! Look at the fluid when it comes out ans see if you see metal or if the old fluid looks like it has metal shavings in it!! You might have burnt the bands up in the trany

Tranmission problems

I assume this is an automatic transmission? (Otherwise, you control the shifting...)

Your transmission gears might be worn. You should take it to a reputable mechanic.

Transmission problems

Maybe your shifter is loose at the tranmission or a stick could have got stuck up under the vehicle in this area. Many people drive over such items thinking no problem, sometime there is with a low riding car. Also look under hood for the connection to your thottle body to see if something has happened there...good luck...

Not one, but two shops that don't want to stay
in business, because there are no knowledgeable
people to be hired in the tranmission trade

Now you have to try a repair shop or waste money
at a dealer

Oh- Yes--- I lost my shirt owning a trans shop because
of that-- so I've been there--

Have a 1987 ford f150 auto tranmission go in gear

Check fluid level and color, adjust as needed, if there is no change then you may have one or more filters that could be clogged or something more serious like a bad pump, internal leak, or so on.

Tranmission ford automatic will not stay in 3or 4 gears

sounds like your syncroids are off, gears tend to wear,and when they wear down so much it tends to kick out of gear! you could rebuild the transmission or go to a wrecking yard and get a used one. I would suggest the second thing!

The Catera is designed to heat the automatic transmission fluid when cold by extending the time the car stays in first gear. This is by design and not a defect.
