Question about 2001 Ford Windstar
My windstar will shift fine until gets to four gear it will slip and go back to third gear. Someone told me is the valve body if you have a valve body diagram I will appreciate it.
Check and see if you have a over drive kick down switch that may be your problem just call a parts store and ask if your vehicle has one
