SOURCE: My 2001 ford taurus lost

these cars have a major issue with torque converters.... the torque converter input splines are softer than the splines on the input shaft and it sheers the teeth off of the input side of the torque converter, i have replaced a ton of these for this problem... usually when you replace the torque converter every thing goes back to normal, what you need to do is check the fluid level while the engine is running, if the fluid level is really high than that is what happened because the torque converter failed and drained all the fluid into the pan... to fix it the transmission will have to come out and the torque converter will need replaced if you drain all the fluid out of it and look down into the center of the torque converter with a flash light you will see the splines missing...

Autotransmission not working at all in Ford mondeo 2.0 2006

of course you can still hear the electrical operation of the solenoids when you select gears. the level is definitely not the problem. there may be an issue with either the transaxle or the torque converter. the fluid drop on starting is normal and a good sign because the pump is working. the valve body may be malfunctioning as well. an OBD2 scantool will tell you alot as well.

What does the shift solenoid do does tell the transmission when to change gears as from 1 to 2 3 to 4 and 4 to od

Depends on the Year of the transmission. The more modern ones have a shift solenoid for each gear. On the newer trans the PCM activates and deactivates each solenoid to put the transmission in the right gear.

The OD on some is an electric lockup of the Torque converter. On the rest, the OD is another gear.

CD4E OD does not downshift out of gear when decelerating, OD light is now flashing, and I can no longer move in forward gears.

The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

Yes the converter and bands are toasted. You more than likely need a transmission.

The o/d light flashes and the transmission wont shift into overdrive on my 2007 mercury mariner. it has the cd4e transmission. i changed the tss and the solenoid pack on the valvebody i get code 1870...

are you missing 2nd gear too? shifting 1 to 3? If yes, 2-4 gear band is bad. common issue.
just google cd4e no overdrive and see comments. You have 6/60powertrain warranty or if extended service plan even more coverage. call dealer with VIN to se if under warranty

If you are towing behind an RV (flat towing) - stop. It overheats the transmission. Also, the 2nd & 4th gear band are a weak design in this CD4E transmission. Google - "CD4E band failure" or CD4E O/D Light flashing and you will see issues and outside fixes. Make sure you have a trans cooler in front of your radiator. Not all got them. Option on some versions.

Maybe a transmission problem?

You transmission is stuck in 4th gear. If you dreive in D this will allways happen. If your drive in the D with a circle around it thats over dirve and has the 5th gear u need. If its still not shifting in OD then your OD is bad

Hope this helps Good luck

Transmission not shifting

Well usually its the overdrive in the trans. Try disengaging it and driving. If it does let you go into the other gears then look into a OD silenoid.
