2000 Ford Escort SE slamming into gear

Just replaced dead battery... now auto transmission is slamming from 3rd to 4th gear and does the same when slowing down. (107,000 miles on the car) Can you tell me if this would be the transmission, or the alternator sucking energy from the battery?

I would say that you need to reset the control module for the transmission to work properly. Have this done by a code reader tool for best results.. If you still have the problem have the fault codes read at the same time.

If the Linkage is not damaged, you are going to need to pull the Transmission out.

The part that went bad is called the SYNCRO's

Transmission problems (gear linkage)


The gear linkages are not correctly aligned.
Is the gearbox mounting in exactly the same place as when you removed it?
Even a 1/4 inch will offset the gears.
hope this helps

95 ford probe se auto. trans. shifts back and forth from 3rd and 4th gear once on hwy. suspect o/d switch or speed/shifting sensors. any ideas?


I own a 1995 Ford Probe SE 2.0L that suffered the same problem. The transmission shop Techs insisted the transmission was blown and needed replaced. After doing some research it turn out to be the Park Neutral Switch also known as a Transmission Range Sensor right below the air box. The part cost 54 bucks. The problem stopped after replacing it. About a year latter the problem came back. After doing some more research it turn out to be the VSS speed sensor. The part cost 57 bucks. The problem stopped after replacing it.
