I am having trouble understanding what you are saying but it sounds like you are saying the transmission shift points are too high. (Holds the gears too long, RPM's too high before it shifts) RIght? Check to see if you have vacuum to the modulator at Idle. If yes replace the modualtor.

    The TPS won't make a difference on a 1992. Did you check the vacuum source to the modulator? There is no programming to it. Was I right on describing your problem? Is the only problem is the shift from 1 to 2? How is the 2 to3 and the 3 to 4 shifts. Can you get high gear out of it?

1994 ford explorer eddie

the transmission is loseing internal fluid pressure, its time for a rebuilt transmission. The A4ld that your explorer has is prone to trouble in this area. A good rebuilt transmission may cost at least $1700 dollars.
