Code definition is Electronic Pressure Control (EPC) Solenoid. This solenoid is located in the trans pan. Driving the explorer without getting it fixed could also wear down other parts in your transmission!

Sluggish acceleration


First thing I would do is get a scan tool and read the codes...it could be anything from a sensor gone bad to a faulty fuel pump.

Codes p1747 and p0500


The 500 code is vehicle speed sensor,the other is spooky BUS system failure ECM?EGS controller. The 500 is probably your shift problem. Hopefully the other is a ghost.Seems you should be able to manually shift and get low gear

Overdrive off light flashing


I had problem(ford escape 6V 3.0 4x4 2002 )with the OD light it was on, transmission looked crazy and it engaged different speed for itself . The problem was that the sensor( high speed ) was wet and rusted ,this sensor is attached to the transmission box , it is inside in new models, the cost is 75 dollars and the labor cost 99 dollars..

My 91 dodge stealth is in limp mode how do i fix this transmission problem


Your car is in "limp"mode because the computer doesn't know what speed your doing,So it doesn't shift,
There are three possible reasons for this,
#1= input sensor faulty on transmission,
#2=output sensor faulty on transmission,
#3=speed sensor faulty on transmission,
you need to have the transmission codes read to know which one,Autozone checks codes for free.

My ford windstar mpv 1994, the overdrive light is continously blinking. The vehicle moves sluggishly. When OBD2 coder reads:1) P0500 and 2)P0760.


P0500 is the trouble code for a problem wiht the vehicle speed sensor. This is a little unit that is on the transmission.
P0760 is the trouble code for transmission shift solenoid problem, This solenoid is IN the transmission.
Take the van to a transmission specialty shop or a repair facility you trust. Speed sensor can be replaced by the user if they are familiar but the shift solenoid should be done by a professional.

The green overdrive light on the dash keeps flashing and the transmission jerks into gear. Any suggestions on how to solve this. The test codes that come are P1747, PO156, and PO161. I have already...


not an oxygen sensor



vehicle speed sensor or oss is most likely cause.


Output Shaft Speed Sensor (OSS) 7H103: The output shaft speed (OSS) sensor is a magnetic pickup, located at the output shaft ring gear that sends a signal to the powertrain control module to indicate transmission output shaft speed. The powertrain control module uses this signal for torque converter clutch control, shift scheduling, used in determining EPC pressure. Symptoms: No converter engagements, harsh shifts, abnormal shift schedules. DTC: P0720, P0721 std~us~en~file=d14110a.gif~gen~ref.gif


Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) 9E731: The vehicle speed sensor is a magnetic pickup that sends a signal to the powertrain control module. This VSS signal tells the PCM vehicle speed. The PCM uses this signal to modify upshift schedules. Symptoms: Shift engagement/disengagement (hunting) on grades. DTC: P0500, P0503, P1500, P1501, P1503
