Transmission slip in drive, overdrive, and cruise control

1996 ford explorer/exploder 4x4 4.0 V6 auto. It will jump from 2000 rpm to 4000 rpm while cruising. What might cause this? What other vehicles have the same transmission in case if we need to replace it? Could it be the linkage?

No this is a transmission mechanical problem caused by the main clutch pack being worn out, the likage will not cause this symptom.

Ford Explorer 1998 rebuilt transmission



Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM


Did you flush the grit out of the transmission cooler and the lines to it? If not you may have ruined a new transmission.

It sounds like it is not going into overdrive. You need to have your transmission control computer scanned for possible fault codes. Either that or you have the overdrive turned off. (Check your Owner's Manual)

Slipping transmission.


The friction plates maybe well worn and need replaced. Torque converter may be failing. Automatic transmissions can and will wear out in time. 14 years is alot for any vehicle.
