Make sure it is not in 4x4 if the 4x4 gear shift got pushed into gear that will do it

Help on the sequence of the automatic transmision ford f150 90 v8


if youve got transmission fluid in it and it wont do anything it is a bad transmission, if it isnt shifting in a correct order then your then your modulator valve is unhooked, bad, or isnt on it and you have to buy one for about twenty dollars or so i think. I cant remember if it is on the drivers side or passengers side. It looks like a spark advance. I hope that helps you out.
