Have it towed to a reputable transmission shop as soon as possible. DO NOT DRIVE IT, or you will probably be looking at replacing the whole transmission. If any metal fragments get into the torque converter or in between the clutch discs it will be trashed. When one of the bands broke in my 1993 Eagle Vision, I tried to limp back home, but after about 5 miles, the car would not go any further. If I had just left it on the side of the highway and had it towed in, it would not have cost me $1350 for a rebuilt.

Can anyone tell me if the 98 Ford Explorer transmission first gear and reverse share the same band??


I'm showing three bands in the parts book, overdrive, intermediate, and reverse. Nothing listed for first gear.
I can't say for certain first does not use the reverse band, but it is not listed that way in the book.

Automatic transmission service adjustments for 2000 mazda bravo


There should not need to be any "adjustments" for a normal fluid and filter service for your vehicle, unless you have replaced some parts of your transmission that requires adjustment such as the gearshift lever, intermediate and overdrive band, throttle cable, or transmission range sensor/switch.

With that said, the band adjustment specs are "Tighten the band adjusting screw to 10 Ft.Lbs. (14 N.m.) then back off 2 full turns. While holding band adjusting scew stationary, tighten the locking nut to 35-45 Ft.Lbs. (48-61 N.m.)

Although Restoring is not a miracle cure it could help it last till can replace , Unless it's gone to far and the bands id shot , You might try changing the flouid and filter it could be stoped up and not allowing the fluid to run through the filter.

2002 Ford Explorer 5R55W transmission had intermediate band and servo piston replaced. Shifted OK for 1-2 months, then developed 2-3 shift flare. Servo bores then rebushed. Helped, but still has...


Band adjustment is very sensitive on these units, I set both adjustments at one turn. This is a 4 speed trans that has been converted to a 5 speed by turning on the od unit ( 1-2 shift ) in first gear.the 2-3 shift is busy because the od band is coming off causing the od unit to transfer back to 1:1 and the intermediate band is coming on . I have found that if the overdrive band is to loose it will release to fast causing a flare on the 2-3 shift bot not really affecting the 4-5 (overdrive) shift. So break both band adjustments loose and tighten the adjustment screw down and back off 1 turn the tighten jam nuts. Also the fluid level should be checked with the transmission warm ( 100 f , not hot, not cold) and the fluid should stream out of the check tube. Transgo makes a really nice vb kit that i use that will help these symptoms.

My 1994 Ford Explorer Limited 4X4 had a really bad leak after driving it and all the transmission fluid drained out when i put the vehicle in gear. Is that the front seal? maybe the water pump?


If your having to add transmission fluid and not coolant, then the water pump is ok, fill with transmission fluid look under truck, if fluid is coming out of between engine and transmission housing, then bad front transmission seal.

My P0745 code: My 2002 ford explorer has a problem shifting from 2 gear to 3 gear. All other gears work fine


Some 2002 Explorer/Mountaineer vehicles built prior to 3/4/2002 with 5R55W transmission, may exhibit no 3rd gear or slipping 2-3 shift with diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) P0733 and P0745 present. This may be due to a broken intermediate band.

ACTION
If the conditions described are verified:

^ Follow Service Procedure "A" to confirm band is broken.

^ Follow Service Procedure "B" after verifying a band is broken.


Per Procedure "B", if a broken band is found replacement of both the OD and intermediate bands and pistons will be necessary. However, only an inspection of the direct clutch drum may be necessary. The drum should not be replaced unless damage is found.

I have a problem with my 1994 ford explorer


yes, if the vehicle is still taking all gears then thats a good thing. check to make sure your getting the right fuel pressure at the engine, check all fuse and relays, check the transmission fluid, check to make sure its at the proper mark, check for the right colour, should be reddish colour, check for a burnt smell.
