My car will go off gear when i brake hard and it takes a few seconds to pick up gear again


It sounds to me like your transmission fluid level is low, when you brake hard the fluid moves to the front of the pan and leaves a void for the filter to grab air instead of fluid. When you stop the fluid settles back and away you go again. This could cause premature transmission failure so check it soon and top it up ASAP. With the transmission cold the fluid level should be near the add mark, full mark only if the trans is hot.

Transmission kicks in first gear and reverse/drive positions. Why


check for broken motor mounts. if it is a rear wheel/4 wheel drive, check your u-joints in your driveshaft. if the aforementioned is good, check the fluid level and condition in your transmission. last resort, if rear/4 wheel drive: check your rearend fluid level and condition.

The transmission is slipping,try changing the fluid first. If that doesnt take care of the problem your transmission will need a overhaul.

Ford trauras trouble code 732 - was told transmission code 732 was being produced, what does a code 732 say?


P0732 FORD - Incorrect Second Gear Ratio
Transmission in second gear and the ECM detected an incorrect gear ration. This diagnosis monitors actual gear position by checking the torque converter slip ratio calculated by Transmission Control Module (TCM) as follows:

Torque converter slip ratio = A x C/B

A: Output shaft revolution signal from revolution sensor
B: Engine speed signal from Engine Control Module (ECM)
C: Gear ratio determined as gear position which TCM supposes

If the actual gear position is higher than the position (2nd) supposed by TCM, the slip ratio will be more than normal. In case the ratio exceeds the specified value, TCM judges this diagnosis malfunction.

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Incorrect transmission shifting

Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

Tech notes
Start by inspecting the transmission fluid level and condition, and change fluid if necessary.


Hope helps.

Shifting problems


hi, first thing is to check the fluid. if the fluid is normal in level, this is a ratio issue with the gears. this means that, you are experiencing transmission failure. The filter may be damaged causing the fluid to not circulate. this is damaging the torque converter as well. this is called slipping. if the fluid is low, this can be an issue as well and, by adding fluid to the fill mark will dissolve the gear problems and slippage.
