This is a 4L60E trans, and should set trans failure/error codes in ECM memory. You don't mention odometer or whether it has been maintained or not.Noises or a MIL would be clues. From only your post, it sounds like either the filter has been getting clogged, or the pump has eaten itself up. Dropping the pan will tell the story.If you find a gritty residue in the bottom of the pan, or metallic slivers of magnetic steel (low planet failure), the valve body has been damaged (as well as the clutches and the band) and it will need a overhaul.

Transmission (1994 astro van ) shifts fine sometimes and other times feels like it stuck in 4th gear. i changed the filter and flushed the trans.Whats up with that?


Its more likely the tranny shift solenoids or the power wire going to the tranny. If the tranny loses its ignition feed (12Volts) it will default into limp home mode. This means neither shift solenoid has power and will be in the off position. When both shift solenoids are in the off position this is normally third gear. It will be very labored taking off from a stop being in third gear, but will allow you to still move (thus limp home). Astro vans were not known for it, however full size pickups with the same engine and tranny, would experience a bad ignition switch. It would disable the tranny circuit and no power would get to it, same symptoms. If it sometimes works it won't be a bad fuse, best to have it diagnosed at a reliable transmission shop to verify. Its not as expensive as a tranny overhaul.

1994 Astro Van Transmission.....at cold start, transmission seems to shift fine...after a while there's a bit of delay when shifting from 1st to 2nd. Any ideas?


I would check the fuild level and make sure the fluid is bright red. You may also want to replace the transmission filter. Also check the modulator, if so equipped.

My 1994 ford econoline van is not shifting gears


Hello.
This a repair for a transmission shop. Sounds like the pumps are bad inside the transmission. Thats the worst option I have.
It also can be a poor shift linkage adjustment. And the last solution can be the speed module that tell the transmission when to shift.
Goodluck! I hope this helps!

1994 astro van automatic transmission wont go in any gear.


If the cable from the shifter to the transmission is moving the arm on the transmission and the unit is full, chances are you transmission has failed.
