    they could have messed something up....did they warranty the transmission where you bought it from? i had to go through this on a ford explorer and they tried to get me to take my truck back with the new trans being bad and i told them to fix it right.they had to order a 2nd transmission

    you might have the modulator valve checked to see if it got broken or not but i think you got a bad transmission. they are usually pretty easy to change out and if they had a hard time with it then you took it to the wrong shop.i would start looking for another transmission or another car if the modulator isnt broken.youll have to have someone check it for you...also have them check the detent cable to see if its set right

1996 Ford Ranger xlt manual transmission can"t shift into 3rd and 4th gear


If it grinds when trying to shift, it is the synchronizers. Rebuild. If it pops out of gear. there is a plastic part at the top of the transmission that wears out. It fits around the ball of the shifter. It is two pieces. You'll have to remove the floor plate and pull it up to access the bolts to remove the shifter and replace those plastic pieces.

1997 Ford Taurus, Won't Shift Past 3rd Gear


Ford is very common for tranny problems. Most likely your tranny will have to be rebuilt. As a mechanic myself, I would suggest taking to tranny specialist to see if i needs to be rebuilt, or if the electrical unit is faulty. It will have to be tested with voltmeter/ohmmeter/multi-tester
