Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
I was driving fine, made it to my destination. Then got back on the highway and the van would NOT shift past 60mph and Rpm gage would NOT pass 4rpms. It would not shift, and would just rev higher. Check engine light would flash. Which the lights been on and off since I have had it, it needs O2 sensor. I had to get back off highway and get it towed because then it would not get any higher then 20 MPH. HELP! Don't wanna scrap if its an easier fix than the Tranny going out.
I have a windstar 98, when i driven the transmission change hard betwen 1 and 2 gear, i don't know if is presure problem o what

Low tranny fluid level .check throttle valve control linkages.could be out of adjustment.worn or damage governor.or band and in put clutch problems.low pump pressure.dirty or sticking shift valves .also have it scan that model vechicle had a vechicle speed sensor.if it didnt work it would cause the torque converter not to lock up.multiply torque.torque converter just free wheel no over drive.
