is this the 4 speed?
ever to do the 50k miles service on it yet, (filter and full flush)?
is the fluild at the spec level
is the fluid called ATF pink, red, brown or black?
does the fluid smell , sweet or burnt.
if very skilled and hands on, person.?
the FSM covers, this , in the chapter, ON CAR A/T service.
read that, and not order of testing, (after the std service)
In automatic transmissions the second to third syncronizers always seem to go bad first, the syncronizers are worn, bad or gone. This is common in these transmissions. Also you might check your trans fluid level, sometimes a low level will cause the transmission not to shift correctly.
HI, It may seem obvious, but sometimes overlooked.... have you checked the oil level, as low oil can cause some strange things to happen! My 96 4 liter would be reluctant to move sometimes, but after I topped it up, it has been fine.
Either your linkage is not properly adjusted or the shift fork is a bit worn inside the transfer case. I have a bit of wear on my own and shift into low range while rolling with no load, between 5&20mph and it works fine except that I need to anticipate needing it before hand. One important rule...If it grinds, don't force it into gear. That will cause damage. Also, if you just got it, change the oil in there...you have no idea when it was last serviced.
If shift is delayed, it may be due to either temperature or varnish in unit. Has the oil been changed in unit at regular intervals? Low temps with even slight varnish buildup can give poor shifts, but it usually clears up as it warms up. If unit is "flairing" (engine speed increases with no shift & slight sensation of power loss ) then shifts, this can be the result of internal wear. If trans oil is very old and dirty, change oil & filter.(if there is an excessive amount of fine metal or non magnetic debris in unit, likely there is internal damage) If fluid is clean and unburned, check to see if your vehicle is equipped with an electronic shift module (have someone check codes to test). Otherwise, unless you are a technician, bring it to a reliable transmission shop.
