Sounds like you might have serious internal transmission problems.

As soon as you can, get someone with a code reader to plug in the vehicle and find out what the code is for the Check Engine light to come on. Might give you a better picture of what`s going on.

It could also (cross your fingers) be something more usual like a clogged transmission filter (located inside the pan), or shift solenoid.

By the way, have you checked the level, look & smell of your transmission fluid?

Level should be checked with the vehicle running, after passing it in all gear ranges on the shifter, and putting it back in park (Check it on "cold" or "hot" level depending on if it`s been driving for a while or not).

As for look and smell, it should be reddish and not smell burnt. Hard to describe the smell of burnt transmission fluid, but normal fluid does not smell too strongly, kind of sweet. Burnt oil is usually black and has a strong odor. If the oil is burnt you have internal damage to the transmission.

One piece of advice I give you is get it fixed as soon as possible because if you don`t already have serious internal transmission problems, the longer you wait, the more chances you have of getting some, to the point of the vehicle just refusing to move. And believe me, speaking from experience, the transition point from the symptoms you describe to total refusal to move and the need for a tow/transmission rebuild is not that long usually.

SOURCE: lincoln ls shifts hard into reverse

You will have to have the solenoid body replaced in the tranny and have the PCM reprogrammed.

SOURCE: When shifting automatic trans in reverse theres a hesitation

I think what you were saying is your reverse slams, and only when you give it gas.
You can try to do the reverse slam fix, which is easy to do:

If it doesn't work, your valve body is probably bad, here is how to swap it, in case you are up for the challenge:

SOURCE: 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..

SOURCE: Engine hesitation, the trac off light comes and car hesitates.

This is just a shot... Get a Can of "SeaFoam" and pour it into your gas tank with a full tank of gas. Then take it for a "Spirited" drive on the freeway or highway for at least 30 minutes to an hour. (Longer is better) i have had many cars with a little hesitation or sputtering fixed with this awsome product. it is a very powerful cleaner that has chemicals that other brands simply do not have. Conditions should have improved after your 1 hour drive. and will continue to improve as you continue to drive with that treated tank of gas. If the problem persists then you need to get the OBD trouble codes and let it direct you to the failed part. At least you would rule dirt "Out of the Question" (Also read the can for other things that Seafoam can fix on your car and how to use it) also does wonders for a couple cap-fuls in the lawn-mower...Chainsaw....Snowblower...etc i Hope this helps you out... Good Luck!

I have a 1995 plymouth neon with a 5 speed . it is really getting hard to shift when engine is running. shifts easy with engine off. clutch problums or not code D


You may have drawn air into the hydraulic line. Check the fulid level in the clutch reservoir. If it's low, look for a leak (usually it's the slave cylinder at the transmission that starts leaking. Please get back to me after your visual inspection for further advice.
