Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport

1 Answer

Ford 2001 explorer sport transmission slipping 2nd to 3rd gear

Noticed recently when shifting that rpm jumped fro 2k to 3k prior to shift. changed screen and fluid. noted no metal shavings or debris in pan. new screen and fluid did not resolve problem. I did notice that one of the four shift solenoids was a bit loose as compared to the others.

suspect that shift solenoid may be problem.

Trans slips between 2nd and 3rd shift


MV could be the problem. Always work thru issue before buying ANY can of additive. Generally those things just mask the issue..not fix it. Change your fluid,and if that doesnt correct it,then take it in and have the tranny bands tightened. most shops do this relatively in expensively.
