1998 Windstar Transmission doesn't shift into gear

I have a 1998 Ford Windstar. Worked fine, then Wife (thankful where it happened) pulled into the driveway from driving, and the car dropped out of gear. She coasted to the parking spot, but now no matter where you shift it - Nothing. Checked that the shifter is actually moving the linkage.
I have plenty of fluid - no visible leaks.

Common problem for ford. and in these vans. Same thing to the 98 I had. I am a mechanic and couldn't figure it out. Thought pin fell out but linkage moved. Brought in to tranny shop and they ended up getting used on for $800

you need a transmission fluid and filter changed.because if filter stopped up.transmission fluid little thicker in cold climate make it hard circulate through filter.when engine and fluid get warmer fluid get thinner where it can circulate through filter cause transmission to shift correctly.

1998 ford windstar will not shift out of 2nd gear . I can manually shift from 1st to 2nd but it will not shift out of 2nd.


The best thing to do is take it back to the dealer, or a reputable transmission shop. Transmissions are highly technical and the average backyard mechanic can not work on them. It could be a servo or clutchpack inside the transmission, or an electrical problem, since the transmission is computer controlled.

Check your transmission fluid level if at all possible. If your fluid is low you won't be able to engage any gears as there isn't enough pressurized fluid to shift the clutch or selector in the transmission box. If that's fine, next check the selector link and check it is connected to the transmission (not totally unheard of for it to come loose). Still no joy then it's the clutch...sorry.
