Question about 1994 Mazda MPV
When first starting engine and engaging in Drive, the vehicle often slips back into neutral and often requires 2nd or 1st gear to drive forward. After the MPV has warmed up the Drive gear will work (92 MPV Mazda 4WD with overdrive 4 speed gearbox. It was suggested that perhaps when the oil filter was last changed a LONG bolt was used to refasten the filter instead of a SHORT bolt and this damaged an internal switch that has something to do with the transmission. Does this make any sense?
IT IS THE STRAINER INSIDE THE PAN IN THE TRANSMISSION,WHEN ITS COOL THE FLUID IS TO THICK TO TRAVEL AND GRITTY TO GO THROUGH THE STRAINER SCREEN,BUT WHEN THE TRANNY WARMS THE FLUID ITS THEN ABLE TO FLOW THROUGH THE SCREEN AND SHIFT PROPERLY.
