Question about 1999 Ford Contour
Trans doesn't engage when put in drive position ,some reverse movement.It started with (at highway speed)disengaging then sudden upshifting problem replaced tran range sensor and was fine for a couple months then it acted like sliping reverse ok and after shifting(when cold)to drive would slowly engage but not move,thats where im at at this point.also didntshow DTC at first ,but that is how I determined range sensor was bad.

If engine revs go high and no forward movement you most likely need a new transmission

Check your trans fluid - if low add dextron mercon fluid, if it still acts up you may need to change your fluid and filter - then if it still acts up you could have done damge by driving it on low fluid

I would begin by replacing the filter if its not new, 2 possibility of issue, faulty shifting module or defective transmission rebuilt. just because it has been rebuilt does not mean the individual work on it did a good job. the less cost effective way is to locate used modulator from ebay or junk yard, if that does not rectified the issue than more likely it will be the tranny. the bad part is that I dont know of a company offer a bench test for the tranny modulator.
