Question about 2004 Ford Explorer
Got to have more information...need mileage,is it a 4-wheel drive ?..Have you ever changed trans fluid before.?..does it have any trans leaks.?do you haul a lot of stuff or ever pull a boat or trailer..? Do you keep tires gauged up..and what type of area do you live in..City or suburbs..mountains..?... Does it automatically switch to overdrive or do you push a button..(This is one of the most causes because some people use overdrive when they shouldn't or forget to push the button when they should...)...Without this information I could only start guessing....If trans fluid is low it will make it slip..or if it has too much fluid it will slip.If it has never had trans fluid and internal filter changed it will slip..(Filter will clog and decrease fluid intake which creates a delay in changing because fluid can't get to the port fast enough because it can't keep up with the engine RPM ..Overdrive gear cog is larger also..However reverse cog is larger than all..In most case's reverse goes out first...)...the trans is basically timed with the engine type it comes out of the factory with...Your trans also has a solenoid switch which will create this problem..If solenoid is bad or going bad it will show a certain code on most scanners...FYI..Auto-Zone should scan it for free...I hope this helps..I am level 4 Chrysler/Jeep certified and Love to help..send more info if you can..However all I have described should just about cover it............Brooks/Metalpoet........"

SOURCE: My 05 expedition slips when
I would change the fluid about 4 times,not flush.
Next replace every solenoid in the pan area
Then the filter
If it has a solenoid pack, you get all that in one piece
Do not drive it one foot, until you resolve that issue,
that comes from someone who previously owned
a trans repair business
Fluid gets changed every 30,000 miles ,not
more than 3 years on ALL Vehicles and Power
Steering at same time
