    Depending on the drivetrain configuration of your truck, and the length, there could be a double universal joint that needs to be fixed. These cause lots of play in the drivetrain when they are worn out. Does your driveshaft have one of these joints?

Transmission issue w/Ford Taurus?


Sorry to tell you this. You have an AXOD/AX4N Transmission and it is going bad on you. Soon, it is going to strand you on the road.

This Transmission is a Money Maker for the Mechanics and Transmission shops around the world.

Some people will put Lucas into their transmissions to extend the life of the Transmission but there are people who do that and cause it do DIE!!!! and I mean Immediately.

I am sorry to give you the bad news but at least it is Honest...

My 2000 ford explora wont shift into park, i have to leave it in reverse to get the key out and put the Ebrake on and shut it off. when i put the car in drive it goes all the way to the number 1, can you...


The shift linkage is out of adjustment.

The cable bolt may be loose up at the column, the column itself may be loose enough to allow it to shift position as well.

Make sure column is securely mounted, If not- tighten the 4 bolts that hold it to the dash support so it is. if it is, crawl under driver's side and on the transmission is a bracket where the cable assembly comes into it, and from there a rod that attaches on the lever on the side of the transmission. Make sure the bracket is not damaged or cracked first- if it is, replace it. There is a captive clip to release on the wide part of the piece that the bracket holds, it does not come out fully, but it will release the cable housing so you can slide it to adjust it. With the column shift in Park position, note where the rod is at the transmission. Also make note if the bracket is in line with transmission. If bracket is in line, pull the lever rearward one notch/detent that you will feel engage the lever- this moves the transmission lever to neutral, then with firm pressure push lever forward so you feel 2 distinct notches/detents forward, the lever is now in park. Push locking clip back into position once you confirm the cable outer housing is squarely seated into bracket opening and is soundly clipped into the square opening of the bracket.

If the lever will not move to that second detent or you did not feel it, you will need to check by putting the column shift to first gear position, release the connection to the lever on the transmission just to verify location of lever, and verify the lever is indeed in first gear- the lever on the transmission will move no further- then count detents forward from the rear stop. you should end up in park, and you may hear the parking pawl engage the output shaft of transmission. move lever back to the rear to the stop, reattach the connection to the cable, put column in park, release the clip again and verify the lever is as far forward as it is going to move. Push clip into lock position.

Start Explorer, with foot on brake pedal, release the emergency/parking brake and see if the vehicle moves, or if it is truly in park. It should be in park.

If you encounter some dificulty with getting the column shift lever itself moved over to park- apply brake pedal to release the park interlock mechanism.

Coming to stop sign by putting break gear slips then return to park move to drive runs. second as i drive in curves slips but as give gas enough continues running.


Just to make sure I got this right. If you come to a stop, the car won't pull again unless you put it in park? Then, if you start into a curve, the transmission starts to slip unless you give it more gas? This could be signs of a bad torque converter, failing fluid pump (not as likely), or burnt/low transmission fluid level. Check the transmission fluid after the vehicle has been driven (warm engine), leave it running, and on a level surface. Check the level twice and take the lowest reading.

I have a ford Taurus 1998 V6 and the car is stuck in Park


If you are parked on a steep grade, the pressure on the transmission might make it feel stuck. It might take a lot of pressure to pull the handle out of park.

If that isn't it, try disconnecting the shifter from the transmission, then try to operate it. At least it will show whether the problem is in the transmission or shifter linkage. You DO have the key turned on and foot on brake while trying to get it out of park, don't you?

Hi, I own a 1997 Ford E 350 Econoline, I have the following transmission engagement problem: Truck will not start: Transmission will not engage any gear, neutral or park. The shift lever feels like is not...


The weld on the manual lever is known to break loose. First, with the wheels off the ground, with the lever in the park position, does the drive shaft lock in park? If yes or no sometimes, drop the trans pan. I bet the nut on the lever camd loose.

Have a 2008 ford expedition having problems getting it of park


are you parking on a hill? if so the torque lock is kicking in which means the weight is putting pressure on the transmission. In the long run it could severely damage your transmission. a suggestion if that's the case is when you park set your foot on the regular brake until the car stops then put in your parking brake or emergency brake, whatever you wanna call it. then after that you can throw your transmission in park. hopefully that helps

Aerostar transmission leaks


Depending on where the leaks are comming from determins the course of action that nees to be taken. If the leak is on the rear output shaft for the drive shaft, the seal can be replaced by removing the shaft and pulling out the seal. This is a relativly simple repair. If the leak is between the motor and transmission, it would be the torque converter seal and this requires the removal of the transission. If it is leaking from the side of the transmission, the transmission needs to be removed and taken apart by a professional. Check your transmission cooler lines. These can seep and the oil will run down the outside of the tube to a low spot and drip far away from the source.

Transmission leak,sluggish drive, pull


Release your parking brake :) Just kidding. Next time it does this sluggish thing, Put it in reverse and apply your brake, firmly and safely.then see if its still sluggish going forward. don't hit the brakes or hold then when you dhift to drive but don't dally and give the guy you just backed into a chance to get to you. Kidding. Ok, no more joking Starting out from a forward stop, vehicle feels sluggish. Stop vehilcle and back up a few feet stopping firmly. Now realese foot brake and put in drive, DON'T REAPPLY YOUR BRAKES SHIFTING INTO DRIVE.see if sluggishness is still present. If it is, Your rear brakes may not be fully retracting or they are over adjusting,adjusted. Automatic brake adjusters sometimes like to over do it. If your trans fluid is low, then maybe it can feel funny but not held back. If the back and forth thing provevs to free the brakes then have the brake checked. But seriously, to save embarrassment make sure your parking brake is FULLY RELRASED. Good luck and please let me know if I've helped you.
