I have a bronco Eddie Bauer 1990 8Cyl 5.0L As i was driving last night i heard a loud noise, wasn't sure if i catched a big hole on the road or what, but two minutes later i realize that the automatic transmission wasn't shifting pass second gear. Any info of what could it be? is this common in an old bronco to break from a minute to the other? Is it necesary to replace the entire transmission? and if so how much could it be for part and labor? THANK YOU IN ADVANCE Carla

Transmission problems are nortorious on the Broncos one state change to the E 40 d transmission. I myself converted mine to an old style c6 transmission in my 93 Eddie Bauer and I have never been happier.

sounds strange. have you checked to see if you have an exhaust leak? you also may be hearing the first clues to your catylitic converter starting to break down. Check for an exhaust leak first and let us know how it looks. Thanks
I think there are 2 switchs on that brake pedal. You are right tho about the brake switch causing your problem. If you fix your brake light problem your other problem will be fixed also.. check to see if the wires at the brake pedal switch are energized. I am betting on a ground problem.
There is a few things that can cause that,..#1 is the axle shaft universal could be worn out and to check it grab the axle shaft and try to twist it back and forth to check if its loose..#2 could be the brake caliper loose or the brakes are moving around in the caliper,#3 also could be the radius arm bracket cracked at the radius arm itself which is about a $25.00 part (not including the bushings which are about $15.00 a set)check these things as my 94 Bronco has been through all of every sound and clunk with 230,00 miles
