    Let's hope you are lucky. Check the transmission for fluid. The fluid should be red, not brown or blackish. The fluid should be checked while the van is running and the fluid level should be between the cold and hot marks on the dipstick, preferably right after the van has been driven a bit.

    Have you noticed any leaks under the van.

    If it is not a low fluid level, it could be a bad sensor. Let's hope not.

C/E light on for 1 code P0741, changed TCC solenoid, trans fluid, filter why would the transmission stop going into gear after previously shifting beautifully with no slipping or any issues at all.


Just because you installed a new part, do not assume it can't be bad. This happens alot with aftermarket parts. When you change just a minor part and a problem develops, good idea to double check both your work and the new parts.

No error code trans not engaging with no warning


There could be many reasons relating to this problem. But inspect the cv joints at the transmission side. Inner joint of one of the cv joints may have slipped out of its position.

99 geo metro automatic transmission grinds when put into gear,it happened with no warning of a malfuction,what happened?


CV Joints can break internally and cause the sound similar to trans problems.

You will either need a new axle/CV Joint, or to probably replace/rebuild the Transaxle completely.

You may be able to tell more from underneath with someone turning the wheel as you watch the CV Joint housing to make sure it's moving at the same time on both ends. If one end of the shaft moves, the other should move equally, not just the axle shaft, the ends that go into the trans and through the front wheels!


Good luck!

Driving a 2003 Ford windstar. Went to pass and


Very common on this make and model trans, pump drive splines inside torque converter strip out and pump is not turning, Most times there is no damage to pump shaft. Remove trans and remove torque converter, inspect the splines at the very bottom of the hub hole. If stripped out inspected pump shaft splines which are the smaller center splines coming out of trans, if ok replace torque converter and re-install trans, change out fluid, clean any metal from magnet and replace filter, fill with fluid and verify proper operation.

2002 Windstar wont go into gear


These are common for the pump shaft splines stripping in the torque converter. The transmission will need to be removed to fix it. Before you condemn the trans, does the speedo move and the van doesn't or do you hear any grinding when you put it back into park? Or can you push the van in park (Broken CV shafts)?
