My 2002 lincoln ls is not responding to the shift changes i put reverse and take a while to respond and reverse same thing when i change to drive


Stop driving it, period

That is one vehicle you want to correct
right away

Remove the trans pan and replace the
Solenoid Control Pressure Pack
It is one part with all the solenoids in it,
and a common failure
It is about $332.00 wholesale
If you buy from a dealer or don't install
yourself, it will be pricy.

I have a 2003 lincoln ls with 110,000 miles and there is a hard **** when it is about to go into 3rd gear; there is also a hard **** when I put in reverse. I am told that I need a solenoid assembly...


You need a new Trans Control Solenoid--one unit with all 3 pressure control and 4 shift solenoids, in one unit.
Remove trans pan,gasket reusable,remove filter,remove 7 torx screws and one 10mm wire harness connector bolt,then pull down old solenoid pack.

Part # 9L2Z7G391A 515.30 list/332.20 cost at trans supply house

Do Not Go to a Dealer,unless your Warren Buffet or Bill Gates

Change the fluid a couple more times, after installing the new solenoid pack, and driving a couple weeks with no issues. Add a bottle of Red Lubgard, to your Mercon V Trans Fluid, at the last fluid change

Also--pull injector fuses,crank over engine, and flush Power Steering Fluid. (Dex/Merc Fluid)

Need location of shift sensor on ford explorer 2002 sports trac (70,000 miles) need to know location and if this could cause reverse not to operate and the shift sensors function? also, goes forward but...


The Solenoid Pack in trans may be clogged up,now you got coolant in there. You flushed the trans I assume and could replace the solenoid control pack, but it will cost you 332.00 wholesale at trans supply house. After that it is out with trans and new clutches. How long did you drive not knowing you had coolant in the trans?

Putting car into reverse after having driven short


You need a new Pressure Control Solenoid Body. 9L2Z7G391A -solenoid pack for a 5R55S Trans. $332.20. at Trans Parts supplier. Don't even call a Lincoln Dealer for a price. They wouldn't even deal with me because I have a sales tax ID, and ask too many question. They will screw you over big time. That's a common problem in a long list of LS issues, my wife has one also and I used to have a Trans Repair Shop. It will slam into Reverse cold, Slip or flair on 3 to 4 Shift. Also expect the EGR Valve to go bad and make the trans issue even harder to troubleshoot, untill it works correctly. Drop the tran pan, remove about 7 screws and change the solenoid body. Best bet, go to a trans shop, never a dealer. Also get the old fluid out of there and put Mecon V in ,with a bottle of Red Lubgard Additive.

My Grand Voyager keeps getting codes P1776 P1784 P0700 goes into limp mode till they are took out



Code p1776 is solenoid switch valve latched in low/reverse position. Valve is located in valve body not solenoid body. The possibilities are:
the low/reverse pressure switch itself is bad
the transmission control relay output circuit is open
the control circuit (sense) of the l/r switch is open, shorted to ground or shorted to voltage.
The control relay's output is on pin #6 of the 8-pin plug of the transmission (red wire); you could verify that the wire has 12V on it when you are idling (and I guess I would put it in gear with the brakes applied). Also examine/shake the wire for intermittent connection possibility.
The solenoid sense circuit connects pin # 8 (light blue) to pin #50 of the transmission control module. You could check that connection and monitor it for voltage to fluctuate between 0V and some measurable V when the trans is shifting normally, and to loose that fluctuation when it is not, which would verify the circuit is OK.
If that proved to be OK, then I would suspect the switch isn't responding and needs to be changed.
The solenoid box is removable after you drop the pan and remove the valve body, and so it would not seem to be an horrendous expense (compared to a rebuild). I haven't done this myself so I can't comment on doing-it-yourself.
I would try to find a competent independent shop that know the Chrysler trans and discuss it with them as to the cost of replacing the l/r pressure switch as the alternative

The code p1784 is about the switch that monitors the hydraulic pressure for operating the low/reverse clutch of the transmission. That clutch is called into play for all forward gears as well as reverse, so it seems reasonable if that clutch were not working that the car wouldn't move in any gear. I would begin by making sure that there is sufficient trans fluid by inspecting its dipstick. If needed only use ATF +4 but don't overfill it. Also, just on a chance, take a look underneath to see if you see any motion of either the left or right half axles (or one moving, but one not) which would be another reason for no motion due to a drive shaft disconnection or some such anomaly. Other than that, your problem could be with the Low/Reverse solenoid switch in the solenoid pack portion of the transmission (the box on the driver's side of the trans) being stuck. That can be repaired without removing and rebuilding the transmission so let us hope that may be the cause. I would have the car towed to a good independent trans shop that has a reputation for knowing how to service the Chrysler electronic transmission.

DTC code p0700 is a transmission control system (mill light) which is related to the other two codes mentioned above.

2001 ESPACE 2.0L AUTO NO REVERSE HELP PLEASE


your trans has lectronic controls to operate the shifting of your trans. If there is a defect, a fault code will be stored in the computer, called a DTC. You need to have someone with a scan tool check for the fault code. It is likely a solenoid that is not working or stuck.

Get the codes first. Autozone can run the test for free on engines, maybe trans codes too. Call your local Autozone or big parts store and ask them.

SECTION 307-01: Automatic Transaxle/Transmission 2001 Escape Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Transaxle Description The CD4E automatic transaxle is a four-speed, front wheel drive automatic transaxle with electronic controls for:
  • Electronic pressure control (EPC) solenoid for shift quality.
  • Shift scheduling.
  • 3-2 shift timing.
  • Coast braking.
  • Torque converter clutch control.
The transaxle features a four element torque converter with a torque clutch and a geartrain that includes:
  • Compound planetary gearset.
  • Chain drive.
  • Planetary gearset final drive.
  • Pinion and side gear differential.
The hydraulic control system of the transaxle has five solenoids that control:
  • Shift feel, through line pressure control.
  • Shift scheduling, through shift valve positioning control.
  • Modulated application of the torque converter clutch.
  • Timing of 3-2 shifts.
  • Engine braking during coast operation.
----------------------------
Solenoid Valve Body Assembly The solenoid valve body assembly contains the transmission fluid temperature sensor (TFT) sensor, as well as five PCM controlled output devices:
  • Electronic pressure control (EPC) solenoid.
  • Shift solenoid A (SSA).
  • Shift solenoid B (SSB).
  • 3-2 timing/coast clutch solenoid (3-2 T/CCS).
  • Torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid.
---------------------------------
You may need your PCM, Powertrain Control Module reflashed by a Ford Dealer.
Try disconnecting your battery for 1/2 hour and then reconnect and see what happens. It will run a little rough and shfit hard until it relearns your engine/trans characteristics.
Let us know results of tests and DTC codes if you get them.
