Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
Does this model have a mosulator vaule
There haven't been modulator valves in transmissions since they started putting computers in cars but it was a good guess. It could be one of three things that I can think of. 1) It may be a loose wire on one of the computer sensors in or on the transmission, 2) one of these could be a loose or defective, 3) And I hope I'm wrong on this one. There may be a bad internal seal which won't allow the internal pump to build enough pressure to keep it in gear. If this the problem, get rid of it before it gets worse, get it fixed before you drive it much more or drive it as little as possible as every time it shifts in and out it damages the internal clutch packs and low gear band. This happened to my 2001 Windstar. At the point that I traded it in, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gears would shift alright but it wouldn't stay in 4th, (overdrive). It would shift in and out of 4th at random. Good luck. Jeff M.
