Question about 2001 Ford Mustang V6
I bought this car from a salvage lot, it has 88,000 miles, the tranny was slipping, so i had it replaced, however the car will not move beyond first gear. The seller of the tranmission swears that the transmission was tested and works properly, the machanic swears he did a great job, however i am still having issues . Please help. i am considering changing transmission modules, and checking fuses where should i start, i can not afford another transmission

First replace oil and filter in the transmisson next replace the spark plug wires and coat both ends of the wire with dielectric greese this should eliminate your problems. Also do a top engine clan to get rid of carbon build up and clean te throtle plate front side and back plus the port hole the plate is located in. Whith the throttle plate not fully closed it allows unburnt fuel to be depostied on the plate and causes it to run poorly.

SOURCE: 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.

Without the information as to why you had the Tranny rebuilt at 51K, I can share with you most likely the problem as per my experience with these units. The Valve body or Block depending on the year is going to be the accused problem as well as repair. Yet the reason most fail is actually the Servo inside the Trans Case itself.
Some common complaints associated with a 5R55S / 5R55W are high TCC slip RPMs under increasing loads, slip codes, and converter apply or release concerns. These complaints are often caused by wear at the ID of the TCC modulator plunger valve sleeve, due to constant oscillation by the pulse width modulated TCC solenoid. This plunger valve positions the TCC modulator valve, which feeds line to the apply circuit, which controls slip rate. Wear of the sleeve will allow the TCC slip rate to continue to rise, and could prevent full lockup.
The Servo kit assemblie restores hydraulic integrity to the TCC solenoid circuit with precisely tolerance parts. The elevated modulated pressure, will not raise apply pressure to the point of TCC piston fatigue, and will result in firmer TCC apply and reduced slip RPM in heavier use applications.
02 Explorers built prior to 03/04/02 with a 5R55W Tranny; can show no 3rd Gear, or slippage in 2-3 gear, with diagnostic codes P0733 & PO745 present.This may be due to a broken Band. Two tests will easily confirm or deny this problem.
Most assuridly the valve body or block will need to be replaced. But further investigation as to why should be a concern or the Valve Body or Block will be no more than a band aid. Repeating itself within a few months. Improper dianosis for these units are why so many Ford Owners are constantly bad mouthing explorers in the Forums.

SOURCE: the button on the automatic
The problem is the park safety switch on the brake pedal (a gblue rubber looking ring under u pedal) because it is not working correctly the pin under the center console is stuck and not releasing the shift
In my case the tip of the blue rubber ring under the pedal broke therefore it did not press the switch which pulls back the pin which locks the shifter in park. (this can cause your break lights to stay on if it breaks or falls off when you apply the brakes)
so, for a few dollars you can replace the ring which notifies the switch to allow the pin that locks the shifter in park to release it.
I did not know I had broke the blue thing (another day, another story) and needed to get somewhere fast so...
I removed the 4 screws that hold the face plate that the shifter sticks up through, I found a white pin down in the console (there is a square white switch underneath and to the left that works the pin, i bent back the bracket until i could pull the pin put of the shifter lock and put the car in gear. However, my car does not lock in Park now. I figure I could use the parking brake if worried which never have and i have had no problems. In fact I forgot all about it until reading this post. Guess I ought to put the pin back in the switch since a few weeks later I had to fix the blue piece in order to get my brake lights to turn off.. (the other day, the other story.)( and how I stumbled upon The Rest of the Story!)
I apologize for my undeveloped vehicular parts terminology. I am not of the male gender and therefore lack the DNA required for innate understanding of anything mechanical. But i can use a screwdriver and look around .....Its that easy!
