Yes....check your fluid level. It sounds low. Does it do it in a turn when you step on the gas as you are turning, slip?

First check and confirm that transmission fluid is not leaking or got low.If its low then make it full.Also see if the filter is clogged or worn our or very old.If it is then replace the filter. The filter is inside; you have to pull it out and take it apart. There are also many other facing the same problem,In some cases the transmission needs to be reprogrammed as the computer to transmission is not getting detected.In some cases the transmission needs to be rebuilt . Get the transmission assembly scanned and retrieve the codes and replace the part as per the codes. --------- Get it checked.Keep updated.Thanks.

SOURCE: I have a 1998 Ford

Does not matter what your told

You have to diagnose the problem

The TPS may have something to with
shift stratagy & on a 1998 may be worn out
by now, if original. Only testing it will tell
It won't have anything to do with changing gears

Torque Converter Clutch you can feel
separate from shifting
If you ride the brake pedal, you disengage TTC
Lock-up & pick up a few rpm

If the trans is all original, just pull it & rebuild it

If has been replaced, you could clean the valve body
& work on checking out the shift solenoids

Unfortunately this is not uncommon and I hate to tell people bad news but the problem is in the transmission. It sounds like the reverse is not locking in like it should. There is a pin inside the transmission that is supposed to lock it in place when you shift to reverse but that may have rounded off or seared off which would cause your problem. A clogged filter will also cause this issue. If you had that transmission back flushed, the normal method used today by shops that cost around $140 or so, then I can tell you for a fact that it needs to be rebuilt.

On a 2000 isuzu rodio 6 cylinder where is the transmition fuse located?


If a fuse has blown, it will not fix anything

by replacing it



No such thing as a bad fuse,educate yourself


Once a transmission slips, it is done & has to come

out & be rebuilt,your mechanic knows that & wants to

distance them self from your vehicle problems

2004 Envoy XUV doesn't always crank.


I want to see if i catch your drift ! When you turn the key in the ignition switch to start , nothing happens ? Have you tried moving the gear slector to the neutral position to see if it starts then ? Park neutral safety switch problem , maybe .
Here is a description of how it works or how it's suppose to work .
Circuit Description (ECM/PCM Controlled)
Moving the ignition switch to the START position sends a 12-volt signal to the engine control module (ECM)/powertrain control module (PCM) Crank Request circuit. The ECM/PCM verifies that the transmission is in the PARK or NEUTRAL position. With the transmission in Park, voltage flows through the Park/Neutral position switch and feeds the starter relay coil. The PCM then grounds the control circuit of the starter relay. When the starter relay is energized it allows battery positive voltage to the starter solenoid S terminal. On some vehicles the starter will continue to crank the engine with the key released until it starts or the crank command has timed out to prevent excessive heat build up in the starter circuitry or the ECM/PCM receives an engine run flag.
Circuit Description (BCM Controlled)
Moving the ignition to the START position signals the body control module (BCM) that engine crank has been requested. The BCM verifies that theft is not active and sends a serial data message to the powertrain control module (PCM) requesting engine start. The BCM also energizes the RUN/CRANK RELAY. When the RUN/CRANK RELAY switch side closes, and the vehicle is in Park or Neutral or with the clutch is fully depressed, if equipped, supplies voltage to the starter relay coil. The PCM verifies the transmission is in Park or Neutral and the clutch is fully depressed, if equipped. The PCM will then ground the control circuit of the starter relay, closing the switch supplying voltage to the starter solenoid. On some vehicles the starter will continue to crank the engine with the key released until it starts of the crank command has timed out to prevent excessive heat build up in the starter circuitry or the PCM receives an engine run flag.

What could be wrong with Transmission?


Hello
1st let me explain how the transmission in this car is shifted, there is a computer control module, it is called the "Powertrain Control Module" or PCM, some cars have a separate computer that is just for the transmission, this is a TCM, your cars PCM does both jobs of running the engine and shifting the transmission. The actual shifting is done by electric solenoids inside the transmission which the PCM controls by grounding them, when the computer determines it is time to shift based on vehicle speed and transmission fluid temperature and other inputs from the engine sensors it grounds the proper solenoid that shifts the transmission up or down to the appropriate gear, it monitores the shift electronically and if it doesn't see that the transmission has done what it was commanded to do it sets a fault code in its memory. I have read your problem and no mention is made that "Your Mechanic" scanned the system for fault codes, if he did and nothing shows up then you have a mechanical fault in the transmission and it will need to be torn down and rebuilt to correct this shift problem.
My experience is 25 years as a Ford factory trained repair and diagnosis technican.

1994 F350 transmission intermittent problem


I had the same problem in my 96 f-350. The transmission has slipped recording a slip code in the transmission. You can pull the codes and get it. I shifts into a safe mode that increases the pressure inside your transmission as part od a fail safe. Plain and simple, you have to have the tranny rebuilt.
