Question about Ford E-350
Automatic transmission is working fine but when stepped down into passing gear, the vehicle slows down, because the engine can't rev up fast enough to accomodate the call for passing gear? It is either going into too low of a gear or it is slipping very badly. When the accelerator is released to the speed the vehicle is moving it works fine.
Also, rear tail lights fail to operate and I can't locate the problem as I do not have the manual to check where all the fuses are located. All the fuses under the dash seem to be ok. Can a copy of the illustration be emailed to me so that I can get an idea how the fuses are labeled.
If you go to youtube and type in your( year,make and model /350 fuses and relays) and you can also type in (year,make and model/350 auto. trans. passing gear). etc.good luck.

I would look under the hood for a relay box and see if the relay needs to be replaced for the tail lights. As far as the acceleration i would try ramping up to passing speed the vehicle could have a governor limiting the top speed.

Sounds like you have yourself a bad shift solenoid pack this is mounted on the front of the transmission under a thick rubber boot and has an 8 or 10mm bolt holding a plug into it, these usually fail hot as it is an electronically controlled solenoid and there are tiny little springs and magnets inside that can stick also while you are in there do yourself a favor and change the two speed sensors on the transmission they are about $22 each and can also cause the problem you are explaining. the shift solenoid pack is about $120 on ebay and some sellers actually sell them along with the input and output speed sensors you may try changing those first and see if it solves it but i have a feeling your solenoid pack is failing also when you change these parts it may take the computer a few trips to relearn shift points but you'll know it fixed it right off the bat.. please rate and good luck -jeff

check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

I had the same problem with my 1991 sv21 camry, it sounds like the reverse clutch is on its way. if you try to engine brake the car in 2nd or low gear does it hold, or slip?, if it slips then the box needs to come out and the cluch replaced, or is the fluid low? i had spent around $1500 Australian Dollars to fix the issue but with the 5sfe enging im aware that the whole engine and box assem, has to come out as well.

Before going ahead and spending money on a new module, test it first. The module is located under the steering column. You'll find a Brown wire on one of the connectors (i just looked at a wire diagram). Do no disconnect anything. Back probe the brown wire, which is the power feed to your park lights. With the lights off, there should be 0 volts on you voltmeter. Turn the park lamps on, There should be 12V. If there is not 12V, disconnect the connector and try to check voltage at the pin that feeds to the brown wire, if still not 12V, replace the module. If you do get 12V, then module is ok, find where the 12v is being dropped before making it to the lamps.

shifter needs to be inspected. The shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has
to be open and realign.
are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and
suddenly this occurred then its shifter
assembly alignment issue.
i suggest you to refer these gear shift issues, which are mostly noticed. These

the specific problems of gear ****.
