I have a 2003 ford Windstar and I had transmission changed he said it is a new trans but when coming to a stop the van would slam down and jerk forward in 2&1 gears what is problem


run the fault codes as it could be problems in servo/ solenoids or wiring
basically it could be dirty oil or problems internally but the word "new" is a good selling point

How many quarts of transmission fluid do I put in my 1998 Ford Windstar 3. O


1995-1998 - 12.25 qts.
NOTE: After a fluid / filter change with just the pan off - it would take only 4.5 qts. to fill it back up. (The rest remains in the transmission lines, gears, torque converter etc).

1998 ford windstar will not shift out of 2nd gear . I can manually shift from 1st to 2nd but it will not shift out of 2nd.


The best thing to do is take it back to the dealer, or a reputable transmission shop. Transmissions are highly technical and the average backyard mechanic can not work on them. It could be a servo or clutchpack inside the transmission, or an electrical problem, since the transmission is computer controlled.

Tranny stuck in 1st gear until it warms


It is usually the electronics of the transmission. If you don't have any other symptoms, you may be alright. If you are getting slipping in between shifts, delayed engagement when put in reverse or drive, these are signs that the internals are going bad.

98 WINDSTAR WILL NOT CHANGE OUT OF 1ST GEAR


usually there is a sensor on the transmission that controls the shifting. if it gave up on you your transmission won't change gears...

another possibility is the filter....

if it has never been changed it might stop the transmission from shifting...

Transmission problems


if it was me I would check the sensors on the transmission first and if those are ok I hate to tell you it could be your torque converter

If the transmission neutralizes when you come to a stop, and will only move by shifting to second gear, then that means that the 1st gear clutch piston is cracked. This is a very common problem with the Windstars. Solution is to have the transmission repaired and have the aluminum piston replaced with an updated piston.
