Question about 1994 Ford Probe

1 Answer

1994 Ford Probe takes 2-3 seconds to move

When I am shifting into Drive, there is a 3-4 second delay before the car moves. Once I am in drive, the car operates fine. No stalling at stop signs. Only when I put car into Drive.

Bad News, your hydraulic pump on your transmission is wearing out. The only solution is a overhaul. I have a Subaru in the same condition, if you can live with it, do it. Just in case check the transmission fluid level.

What causes 1996 Dodge Neon SOHC automatic transmission to delay or slip shifts?


that is a hum dinger, largest ever posted, in one shot.
very good.!
one word , the transmission slips. (never drive a slipping tranny)
overheat indicator.! that is key.
many newer cars will change the transmission shifting any time
the engine over heats.
and overheat wins over transmission , every time.
if the engine burns up, what good is any transmission.? nada.

solve overheat first.

slip or flare.
is when the engine RPM rises fast and the car dont go faster.
SLIPS.
and slipping burns up trannyclutchs and increases the damage. inside the transmission, dont do that. dont allow it,
park it and fix it.

on some tranny there is a temperature sensor that the TCM
watches and changes shift patterns based on AFT fluid temps.
and if the ATF fluid gets too hot , it takes actions. to keep the tranny from harm.

why not get a scan too and see what DTC errors there are..
DTC, engine overheate.
DTC< tranny overheat (caused by above)

Transmission problems


It could be a sign of bad transmission solenoid. If so, your vehicle has trouble shifting into drive or reverse. Normally, when you start your car, you're able to shift into drive or reverse right away. With a bad transmission solenoid, the vehicle could have a delay of a few seconds, or even take several minutes to warm up and operate properly. During this delay, the vehicle will act similar to how it behaves in neutral. It won't stay in park, and when you press the gas pedal, the vehicle will make an engine revving noise but not move.

You could have a shop check pump pressure - usually the cause is a weak pump or problems with the valve body.
Chances are if you just sit in drive at idle, it will also move on its own in a couple of minutes once the fluid warms up.
I never recommend changing fluid after 100k.

Test the transmission module. It controls everything the transmission does, the timing of shift points, gear selection, overdrive, etc
