Question about 1994 Ford Explorer Limited

1 Answer

This is a 4x4 6cyl engine. Between 30 and 40mph the transmission hands. The RPMs go way up before it shifts to the next gear. That's the only time it does it. All of the other gears are normal, it's just that one. Can you give me an idea of what to look for?

Its slipping already in the gear and then you feel it catch...they slip after they shift it just feels backwards in the driver seat watching the rpms smoothly climb.. or the fluid is bad . drain and fill first take the filter apart look for pieces of metal and plastic or teflon flat washers thrust washers, if its operated with a epc solenoid thats a problamatic shift solenoid...

I have a 2009 GMC Acadia. What should the ERS mode be in on a normal basis?


Driver Shift Control (DSC) or Electronic Range Selection (ERS): This position (M-Manual / L-Low) allows the driver to utilize the DSC/ERS system. When the shift selector lever is moved to this position, the driver may select upshifts or downshifts by using the paddle switches located on the steering wheel/shifter. An upshift is requested by pushing either + button. Refer to the vehicle owner's manual for more specific DSC/ERS information.
Driver Shift Control (DSC)/Electronic Range Selection (ERS)
Refer to the owner's manual for specific instructions on DSC. The TCM will override shift commands when maximum engine speed is achieved and will protect from any downshift which may cause excessive engine RPMs.

Electronic Range Select (ERS) Mode
ERS mode allows you to choose the top-gear limit of the transmission and the vehicle's speed while driving down hill or towing a trailer. The vehicle has an electronic shift position indicator within the instrument panel cluster. When using the ERS Mode a number will display next to the L, indicating the current gear that has been selected.
To use this feature:
Move the shift lever to L (Low).
Press the plus/minus button located on the shift lever, to increase or decrease the gear range available.
When you shift from D (Drive) to L (Low), the transmission will shift to a pre-determined lower gear range. The highest gear available for this pre-determined range is displayed next to the L in the DIC. See Driver Information Center (DIC) and DIC Operation and Displays for more information. The number displayed in the DIC is the highest gear that the transmission will be allowed to operate in. This means that all gears below that number are available. For example, when 4 (Fourth) is shown next to the L, 1 (First) through 4 (Fourth) gears are automatically shifted by the vehicle. the transmission will not shift into 5 (Fifth) until the + (Plus) button is used or you shift back into D (Drive).
While in L (Low), the transmission will prevent shifting to a lower gear range if the engine speed is too high. You have a brief period of time to slow the vehicle. If vehicle speed is not reduced within the time allowed, the lower gear range shift will not be completed. You must further slow the vehicle, then press the - (Minus) button to the desired lower gear range.
Automatic Engine Grade braking is not available when the ERS is active. It is available in D (Drive) for both normal and Tow/Haul mode. While using the ERS, cruise control and the tow/haul mode can be used. See Tow/Haul Mode for more information.

I have a 1988 Corvette with a 700R4, not wanting to shift from 1st. to 2nd. unless I leave my foot off the gas for it to shift. Contact mac1212sr@aol.com


Transmissions have "synchros" that adjust the speed when shifting from one gear to the next, because the engine's RPMs, while correct for, say, 1st gear, are too high to shift to 2nd gear.

If you're really careful, and an expert driver, you can shift a manual transmission from one gear to the next without using the clutch at all.


However, you seem to have a transmission problem with the 1-2 synchros.

Why does the rpms on my 96 dodge grand caravan just keep going up when driving


It is common for rpm's to increase, as the acceleration increases... That is when the transmission comes into effect, when the RPMs increase, the next gear is then shifted into.
if the RPMs continue to increase, then the transmission is not shifting. It's possible that you have a transmission or torque converter problem.

Gears not shifting properly, it hesitates to go into the next gear and sometime rev as high as 4 rpms but not shifting what could it be?


Automatic transmission fluid probably low. Last time you had car serviced? Proper manitenance is critical to making your car's systems last. You may have a bad leak (pink fluid) under car. Check your owner's manual troubleshooting.

The transmission must hit 3 to 4 rpms to shift to next gear first to second and especially second to third gear


Now you can rebuild the transmission also

Why does my 1993 chevy 350 idle so low?


First clean the idle air control valve with a non-chlronated brake cleaner or replace it with a new one.If that did'nt help check your fuel pressure it should be 9-13 psi with the engine running anything less you will need to replace the fuel pump and fuel filter.

I have a 1992 Chevy pick up 1500 series. 350 engine. The idle is running low on it, were and how can I adjust it?


If the vehicle has a automatic transmission, check the Neutral Safety Switch. If defective from wear it could be sending incorrect signals to the Electronic Control Module which in turn sends signals to the Idle Air Control. It will make the computer think the transmission is in gear and lower the RPMs and then when the transmission is actually in gear the physical load will lower the RPMs even more. To check, set the parking brake and move the gear selector to Neutral and check the RPMs to see if the engine maintains a constant 650 +/-. Next, shift to Drive and check if RPMs drop to and maintain 500 +/-. If it does then you have diagnosed the problem. The original equipment Idle Air Control motors rarely wear out.
