This problem could be as simple as the fluid level being low. Or as complicated as a leak in the vacume lines. The problem could also be the kick down cable is not hooked up.

Their should be two cables hooked up to your throttle, IF you do not have cruse control. If your van is equiped with cruse control their will be three cables hooked up to it. Two on one side and one on the other. The one by its self is the cruse control the other two are the kick down cable and the other goes to your petal. If the kick down cable is not hooked up it will not shift right.

Check the transmision fluid level with the van running. If low fill and let it run for 5 min.

If this is not the problem replace all vacume lines that have to do with the transmision.

Please let me know if your problem presists.

Thanks, Charlie

2005 Mountaineer 2 wheel drive, 6 cyl hard to shift when parked on incline or decline and doesnt feel like shifting into overdrive. Sometimes jump a few inches when put into reverse. Any thoughts.


Yes when you park on an incline you should always put your emergency brake on before shifting to park. Then whenyou are ready to move again put you car in gear before disengaging the emergency brake. this will remove the stress from the transmission.

ON MY FORD F150 IT WON1T GO INTO REVERSE. SHIFTS


Call a dealer about a new recall. There is another problem in the cruise control that is making it hard to put a vehicle into reverse. There are also problems with brake lights and dash indicators for the ABS all caused by the cruise control. This includes about 16 million various Ford products.

My 2001 dodge caravan isn't shifting into overdrive.. and is hard to shift from park to drive and to reverse. any ideas?


The transmission is probably shot. the only other thing could be dirty linkage if you mean "hard" as in hard to move the shift lever. The first thing I would do is get a tranny fluid and filter change.
