Question about 1993 Ford Thunderbird

1 Answer

1993 Ford Thunderbird w/5.0L engine transmission shift problem

When going down the road it will shift from 1st to 2nd but then won't shift again it will instead keep making the rpm's climb and that's in overdrive. If I shift into regular drive it goes away but still doesn't shift quite right and also downshifts funny. If I replace the transmission filter will this fix my problem? And also wat transmission would be in there?

Would transmission control module cause transmission to shift from 1st to 2nd and them not accelerate


Yes it can. But have the codes read. It could be just a bad shift solenoid. Better to have it diagnosed. Takes a scanner. The TCM and PCM are the same computer.

I have a 1993 f-250 u have to manually shift to 1st to take off shift to 2nd and still in 1st gear. Shift to overdrive and transmission will shift through 2nd 3rd 4th and then to overdrive with no problem....


When was last trans fluid & filter change? Should be done every 30k/3 years or sooner of you do any towing. I'd start there and get it flushed thoroughly.

Transmission will not shift out of 1st gear.


Check your transmission fluid level. If the filter has never been changed, now is a good time to replace the fluid and filter.

93 LincolnTown Car will not shift above 2nd.


Have you tried taking the car in for maintenance? Usually on most (older) auto transmissions there is a hose coming off of the exhaust manifold or carburetor area that provides the pressure for the transmission fluid. If that hose doesn't have a good seal, your shifting may be difficult and the transmission may not stay in the gear you want it to.
