SOURCE: 2002 Ford Ranger transmission slipping?

The longer you drive with that condition, the more damage you will cause. Park it until you can repair it.

Think of it as how long would you think it is okay to run your engine without oil? Zero.

SOURCE: 1997 ford contour transmission over drive light

The first thing you need to do is get the tranny power flushed.
And not the aerosol cans of flush you buy at the parts store.

Don't go to AAMCO either.

Certified transmission or a reputible service garage can do this. It averages about $160. The contour uses a CD4E series automatic 4 spd tranny. It has a history of overheating. It was used in the Contour, Mystique, Ford Escape, Ford Probe, Merc. Cougar, Mazda 626 and MX-6, and Mazda Tribute. all had the overheating problem that cooked the tranny fluid. They run hot.

The overdrive light starts blinking I bet when you drive it on the interstate at highway speeds for about 5 or more miles... then it shifts real hard (whiplash effect). Turn the car off and reset the transmission controller and the light stops, and it shifts normally... this doesn't fix the problem though.

Primary solution is to flush the tranny. You have to do this to save whatever life is left in the transmission clutch disk/packs.
The CD4E does not have a filter in the pan, but a screen. It's located on the front of the transmission, not the bottom. The pan is hard to get at and is easier to do if you remove the tranny from the car. .

As i said, have the tranny flushed, then, pick up a good "stacked fin" oil cooler from your parts store. They run about $70 for a good one. If you get the tube/fin ones, they average about $30 but only cool half as much for the area they take up.
You can get a used one out of the early model ford Explorers (92-94) with automatic transmissions. They run about $5 to $10 at the junk yard.

Find the Transmission cooling lines going into the radiator tank and using a mini pipe cutter, cut the return line that goes from the radiator back to the transmission about 6-12 inches back from the tank. Get some heavy duty rubber oil tubing from your auto parts store and divert the output line to the cooler and then back to the tubing that hooks to the transmission...
You can even add an externally mounted oil filter, like the one used for the engine, next to the cooler giving you a great way to maintain your transmission even longer. A filter you can change like your oil filter.

Either way, you'll cool the fluid properly and extend the life of your transmission. The blinking light is a warning, like your check engine light, to get you to check the transmission... ie... I'm running too hot!!!

How do you fix transmission? transmission over heated, blew out fluid. replaced the fluid,then move it. went forward some then nothing. wouldnt go reversed at all.


When the trans overheats and blows the fluid out of it, the trans has suffered damage, as you have found out by the no-movement you have now. You need to find a trans shop to have it rebuilt.

Transmission slips in 3rd and overdrive


Take it to transmission shop you may need bands adjustment or band and clutches worn out.... transmission shop will check no charge really nothing one can do without a shop and a hoist
make sure you have oil and a plugged trans filter would do that if it did something cooked if the car is worth it get a rebuilt put in cheaper than trying to repair is high invest it in a rebuilt with warranty better than towing off highway

I bought a used Ford explorer sport with 80K on it. Shortly after purchasing it. the overdrive light indication on the dash display will intermittently blink. I took it to my mechanic they checked the code...


Best quality is never the cheapest price. Replacing the solenoid pack is MUCH less that having the trans rebuilt. and usually they replace the solenoid pack as part of the rebuild. So find a trans shop that will trouble shoot the trans and come up with a plan of action. 80K is young for trans trouble, but you never know about past servicing, overloading or abuse.

Where is the vss located on a 95 ford windstar. The speedometer went ouit and its shifting crazy.


The vehicle speed sensor is located on transaxle in behind the engine.
Tricky to get at and not an easy replacement.
While it is possible the sensor is bad, the more common issue with your Windstar is the speedometer itself.
You should have it properly diagnosed before replacing parts.
If the speedometer is the defect you will need to replace the instrument panel as an assembly.
Using parts from a recycler will often result with another bad speedometer as it is a very common problem.
Some aftermarket auto supply may be able to get you a rebuilt unit.
if not you may have to get it from Ford.

My Mom also had her trans rebuilt and was later told that flushing the trans and replacing the filters could have solved the problem without the total rebuild ! After it was rebuilt she had the same problems all over again and it turned out that the trans seal was broken. Does it spit out transmission fluid when you drive it? If so, this is might be the problem!

1995 ford econoline van speedo/trans


It is either the speed sensor, the wireing in between ot the speedometer module it self. The sensor sends pulse train signal to the speedometer module and there it drives the speedometer and is divided in frequency by about 7 and feed to the computer and the cruise control. When the signal drops the Engine management computer thinks the speed is real slow and raises the transmission pressure.

In the one I had it was a cold solder jooint on the bacjk of the speedometer module itself but this was the divided output and the speedometer itself still worked. The easyest part would be the sensor that mounts on the rear axile I believe and should cost less than 30.00 dollars. If not that thebn it's the wiring or the speedometer module electronics..
