On the top of the trans where the shifting bar goes through os a black switch with a large plug in it. these are known to go and cause this problem, ford charges 135$ to R&R including the part, junk yard is $30 for part eBay is your best bet for a new one

I suspect my 1995 windstar may have a bad modulator valve the fluid level seems to go away with no apparent leak and now it takes off in 2nd gear and won't shift to 3rd or od and the od light on t


I've been doing research on these vans. Seems I remember that if the OD light flashes >>> fluid level is low. Also, I read where Ford wants you to overfill fluid so as to allow you to go around corners without loss of lubracation. By this time you may have melted it down and bought a Honda. I have a 95 Teal color and just in flawless shape, however it won;t go in reverse. Just follow the hood ornament and don;t look back...right ! ?

Automatic transmision making grinding noise and will not move in drive or reverse


Loss of fluid or transmition pump went out. Replace as needed.

Transmition may need to be analyzed for any gear damage.

you need a different tranny because the reverse is a direct gear and is doent engage,the reverse doest work with the drive gear system,so you have a internal mechanical problem in you tranny

When was the last time the trans was serviced? Sounds like the clutch packs are bad or the shift control module may be out. Either way go directly to an independent transmission shop and have diagnosed. Ford has a horrible record for there automatic transmission. I wish I could say good news but probably won't be. Stay away from dealer. They will use the same parts supplier as independent and cost 2xs more. When I was dealer mechanic we sent transmissions to independent shops to be rebuilt. save the time and money yourself. Good luck.
