It doesn't make any sence. You are on your third trani and all of them have failed with the same exact symptoms. Is the torque converter the same? And when the first trani was removed did you have metal in it? If so, you may have contaminates inside the trani cooler and it is either clogged and there is little or no flow or is sending the **** that is inside it into your replacement trani. The trani is a 4L60e, right?

    Are the trani lines in good shape, free of defects, kinks, or clogs? I don't know if this would pertains to your trani issue but I know if the linkage isn't setup correctly, at the steering column, this could cause issues because the trani isn't truely in the selected gear completely.

My ford F150 won't shift from 2nd to 3rd. Does anyone know what could be the issue?

Usually the transmission needs to be rebuilt in that situation. It's a very common problem if that's the famous automatic overdrive transmsission. AOD I have had three trucks that have done that. It usually starts by shuttering when it shifts and than finally goes out. Sometimes the Lucas transmission treatment gives you a little more time, but it sounds too late for yours. From what I understand (mechanic told me) that when the overdrive goes out, it takes third gear with it. If you drive in hilly areas, that overdrive is shifting in and out all the time as you go up and down hills and wears it out. My Dad had that hapen on his F150 and he replaced his transmission with a junk yard transmission that turned out to have the same problem. I had that transmission replaced with a Jasper rebuilt and it worked great. I think it was $1300 for the rebuilt trans with the old one core trade in. I think when 3rd gear goes out, you can only go about 45mph without over reving the engine. I saw that same problem with a Ford Crown vic with that same transmission and 302 engine that my neighbor had.
Did your third gear just go out all of a sudden or were you getting like a shuttering or kind of a grinding sound when it shifted?

Are the eo4d transmissions good?

these are great transmission,,
just make sure to save up that 30.00 in case the trans range sensor starts going out,,it'll start hunting between 2nd and 3rd or overdrive and 3rd. thats when ppl think the trannys goin out and dont do anything about it until its too late. have a spare if ya want one. they're 650.00 guaranteed at any salvage yard 90 days. plus core..good luck.

Took 2000 dodge intrepid 3.2 engine to shop. NO heat. they sd it was the ac/heat control panel. they replaced it, when i picked my car up, still no heat. went and got another part from junk yard, now will...

the fact that after you changed the part from the junk yard it blew warm air indicates that the heater core is not the problem
could be the heater control is not fully opening or the junk yard replacement part is faulty

I have a 2002 ford focus and the car will not move in reverse. It moves forward in drive only, but won't kick into overdrive. Any ideas

sounds like its internal, like the reverse band, that applies the overdrive, or the clutches that apply when in overdrive, either way the reverse band and overdrive clutches work hand in hand, for overdrive and reverse... id say you need a rebuild or a junk yard unit.... :( sorry for the bad news.

This is the 3rd tranny - Exact same thing is happening.

You might try to add a transmission cooler. If its getting hot it will eat the transmission easily. time to swap it out and sell the problem to someone else.
