IF you mean that it is not down shifting when slowing or stopping then it is time to have it serviced. This could be a solenoid that is hanging up.

SOURCE: Auto Transmission

Try shifting the trans manually through the gears and see what happens,doesnt cost anything so,possibility valves are sticking in the valvebody after sitting so long,and manually shifting the car will force some of them to stroke in their bores unless REALLY stuck.Could also be shift solenoids.Scan for diagnostic trouble codes.A bad solenoid will have set a trouble code.Just FYI,1991 was the first year Ford went to all electronic trans,i had a 91 Sable.

SOURCE: transmission slipping

do u have any transmission trouble codes? u should if the OD light is flashing, the light flashes to alert u that a electronic malfunction is occurring in the trans controls, u may just have a bad trans connector or a shift solenoid starting fail due to a shorted field closing coil.

SOURCE: Transmission shifting proublem M5R1 1997 FORD RANGER

You might have to try to adjust the freedom of clutch pedal,
The noise during shifting can be adressed to exessive wear clutch parts or again it might be a sign that indicates the not complete enabling the calutch
To find out what is causing the noise, set the parking brake, place the vehicle in neutral and start the engine.
If you hear growling or grinding noises when the clutch is engaged, the cause is the transmission input shaft bearing.
A squealing sound that occurs when the clutch pedal is depressed and held is usually caused by a bad pilot bearing or bushing.
A chirping noise that intensifies when the pedal is slowly depressed would indicate a bad release bearing.
If you hear chirping while idling in neutral and the noise goes away when the pedal is slowly depressed, the fork/pivot ball contact point is making the noise
Hope that helps.
The clutch adjustment procedure you can find at

SOURCE: How do you remove the gear shift lever on a 93 ford ranger?

many of these trucks have a mazda trans in them, to remove these shifters you will need to remove the 4 phillips head screws from the corners of the trim around the shifter boot and pull it up out of your way. it's not necessary to remove the boot from the shifter, just lift it up for access to the top of the trans. at the base of the shifter on the top of the trans you will see a plate attached with torx head screws. remove all but 2 of them, now make sure the trans is in neutral and remove the last 2 screws and pull the shifter straight up. the shifter is now out leaving a big hole open on the top of the trans for dirt to fal into so put a wrag in it or screw a piece of cardboard to it. installation is the reverse. good luck

My 04 d0dge ram 4wd auto trans will not down shift


What is the governor pressure sensor reading look like.
This sensor tells the transmission controler what kind of load the engine is under while driving. This tell the transmission what gear to be in. That's why the transmission starts in 2 nd gear
..With most transmissions now if you don't have the live data in front of you to see if all the sensors are in range and test the values that are out of speciation.

1994 ford ranger, My stick wont go into fifth gear position.


When you put the Shift Handle back into the TOP of the transmission, there is a spring on the Top and it that comes loose, it would cause this.

BTW... it happened to me

Pull the Stick UP, Clean the Ball, make sure all the parts are there and that the spring that you push against is there and reinstall

Stick in 1st gear have to pull it hard all others are fine


Hi,
There two possibility of breakdown in that part, one is the cable might have loosen up and needs some adjustment in the shifting stick gear base. A local mechanic can adjust it and check why it become loose.
The second is, synchronizer gear failure. That part is inside the transmission, it is made of brass, and the gear teeth might have worn out. To check it, needs to pull down the whole transmission and opening it to check the gears. Replacing that gear is a must!
That gear broke down when somebody forcefully shifting the gear in first without the clutch assistant.
Forcing your car to start at 2nd gear from stop will wear down your clutch assembly, so be very carefull don't over rev the engine.
Hope that helps you.
Thanks for using FixYa!

The transmission in my for ranger shutters when it shifts


have a friend check the tranny fluid with the truck running and in drive, with your foot on the brake, rev the engin to 1000rpm this is the only way to get a proper reading on the dip stick, if the fluid is not bright pink and smells bernt then u may have to have the tranny rebuilt, but if the fluid level and fluid are fine it could be as simple as a sensior or shifting silinoid

How does the 97 dodge intrepid auto shift work?


when in auto shift mode you place gear selector in auto shift and as you drive you are in control of upshifting and down shifting, when you want to shift up you slide shifter to the right and to down shift you slide shifter to the left, but also know that the vehicle will up shift on its own if rps are to high and will not downshift all the way back to first, and try not to take off in higher gears that nwill burn the transmission
