Hello WBW,

My name is Mike. I've been an Expert here at Fixya for over eight months and have never had a problem.

On behalf of the True Experts here at FixYa, I would like to apologize for the post submitted previously.

This person has been previously banned from the site for posting inappropriate content. He chose the weekend for his 'tirade' because he knew there would be minimal staff available to shut him down.

In addition to the account he posted your message with, since Saturday he has created three other accounts that we know of and has used them to post over 100 messages exactly the same as the one you received.

The process of banning him at the IP address level has been initiated. But the process of removing the individual posts will take a while as they must be taken out one by one to maintain the referential integrity of our database.

In the meantime, we have called attention to this persons activities to our colleagues so that those with expertise in the area your problem resides can easily find and address it.

As I said, there are quite a few of these posts and it will take some time to address them all. So please be patient.

Once again, please accept the apologies of FixYa and the True Experts dedicated to making this site possible.

Best Regards,

My 1995 buick lesabre electronic transmission- it shifts at the wrong speeds and sometimes will not shift into high gear on the highway, but sometimes it will work. and sometimes it loses gear on th


First off, have you changed your trans fluid lately. sounds like you need a trans flush. when you drop the trans pan and replace the filter and fluid you only get 3 to 4 quarts of transfluid. your trans holdt 12 to 15 quarts. so have it flushed completely cost $80 tp $120 but beats buying a new or rebuilt trans. always make sure you have the right amount of trans fluid. underfilling will cause lose of pressure and not shift properly. over filling a trans will cause over pressure and cause worse problems.

1990 Ford Bronco II manual transmission extremely hard to shift will not go into reverse


90 Ford Bronco II: You have to put it in whichever gear you want it in before you start it or it wont shift at all. Then once you are going its extremely hard to shift into the other gears. Reverse is the only gear that sounds like its grinding.

I have a 1992 Ford Bronco and it began to hesitate tonight while driving. I put the gear in low and now I dont know how to get the truck back into the correct gear. Im not familiar with the floor gears


look at the driver side visor the shift pattern is printed there. it should be also on the shift lever itself . I think 2 wheel high is all the way forward then back 1 is neutral back 1 more is 4w low and all the way back is 4w high

Grinding in and out of 4 wheel drive


You say 'new' truck, 09? or new used? I have had 3 Fords, 3 w/ manual trans. case, if you go into 4x4 Low range, you must come to a complete stop before shifting the trans. case to 4x4 mode, and I always put trans (automatic) in neutral before slipping into 4x4, it engages smoothly, no grinding. 4x4 high range can be put in while moving, but I would let off the gas pedal, shift to 4x4 high range, then resume accelerating. If there is any grinding going on doing it as above, something isn't right. Check the trans. case fluid level also, to make sure that's not an issue.

This model has a tranny computor under the dash on the right side screwed to the bottom of the dash. If I remember correctly, there is also an inline fuse attached to the harness. Check the fuse.

Ford transmission 86 4wd will not shift to high gear


It is hard to say from your description what the problem is ... could be linkage issue ... could be trans is going as is with the other poster ...
Losing overdrive. Clutches (bands/clutches) have had it. Be careful driving without that top gear ... doing too high a speed without the appropriate gear causes extra stress on your engine that could accelerate further problems. Try to do only driving at a low enough speed that the top gear is not missed ... will help the vehical last as long as possible.
