Question about 1988 Ford F 150

Open Question

My 1988 Ford XLT 4x4 Auto Transmission has stopped shifting into drive and over-drive; reverse, low gear & second gear work fine; happened all the sudden, no warning; Transmission is full of fluid... What's your best guess?? Is there a fuse in the electrical fuse box that might be blown; or is it worse?? Truck has 146000mi. on it; Thanks Mike Valentine

My auto transmission for a Ford 2004 Escape with 2WD only engages in reverse. When problem suddenly showed up i was able to drive car in front drive by engaging 1 or 2. stopped car and all forward mov


I would have it towed to a different shop for a second opinion.
To start at the beginning, if it works in reverse but not drive the linkage is working.
When you put the transmission in low or second you are bypassing most of the sensors and valves. You put it in first or second gear and it stays there.
It could be a long list of things from the valve body to the pump to a solenoid or sensor.
There is a good chance the problem could be fixed without needing an overhaul.
You never take a knife to a gunfight, so you wouldn't have anybody but a transmission shop work on a transmission.
When they recommend an overhaul, they are pulling your trans out and replacing it with someone's rebuilt out of the crate. No worries on their part.

My 2002 f 250 wont come out of 4x4 low


If you are trying to get out of 4x4 and your truck is parked, probably it would not change the gear. You have to try the following: If it is standard shift, start the truck change to second and third gear, then try shifting off the 4x4. I think the same works for the automatic transmission.

Remember go got to be driving in order to get the 4x4 off.

1988 ford ranger 4x4. Push button for on the fly


That would be the actulator on the transfer case. More than likely it needs replaced. Check for good connection at the plug on the tranfer case.

1988 Ford Bronco Transmission Issues


is the idle speed correct? do you shift into second before trying to engage reverse?, is the clutch ok, this is most likely not the trans at all but one of the above issues, the clutch is my guess.

02 jetta w/auto train will not change out of low gear


You'll have to get it checked. Its going into limp mode. When this happens you have third gear and reverse. Its to get you somewhere to get it fixed. You can damage the tranny worse driving a lot while its like that
