Question about 1996 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

Slipping transmission. why would my transmission be slipping even after changing the fluid and filter, It feel out of gear going down the road. I parked it and killed it. then started it up and it would go in gear but had no pull. The overdrive light is flashing and it will barely even move in any gear. I have a 1996 Ford Explorer 4.0 V6 and an automatic transmission.

    How do I know that if I change the tourque converter, that it solve mhy problem? Then again, should I change the transmission as well, just to be sure it's not the pressure plates?

The friction plates maybe well worn and need replaced. Torque converter may be failing. Automatic transmissions can and will wear out in time. 14 years is alot for any vehicle.

    You wont know that why most people replace the converter as part of the transmission rebuild.

Slipping out of gear


check fluid levels add if low..retry the car and see also if the fluid is brown and dirty when you check it..change the fluid and filter in the trans mission and it should work ok also look at any vacuum lines that run down to the transmission see if they are good..

My transmission is slipping


The clutch lining worn out n the lining powder stuck on the transmission filter so transmission fluid pass through the filter clogged.. Only way is to repair the transmission or replace the whole transmission.

1995 lincoln occasionally has problems getting in gear to go. Seems like it is stuck in neutral. Lasts a few seconds then it gets into gear and goes.


SEEMS LIKE TRANSMISSION FLUID LOW.TRANSMISSION SLIPPING TRYING TO GO IN DRIVE.CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL. IF LOW ADD FLUID UNTIL YOU REACH FULL MARK ON TRANSMISSION DIP STICK. WITH ENGINE RUNNING A IN OPERATING TEMPERATURE.IF FLUID LEVEL OKAY.CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER IF YOU HAVE NOT CHANGED IN A LONG WHILE.A DIRTY STOPPED UP FILTER WILL CAUSE TRANSMISSION TO SLIP.CANT PICK UP FLUID.

Roar on acceleration from stop,once it makes the first shift,seems to be fine. Possibly low on fluid? Is this transmission serviceable?


Yes the transmission is serviceable. Let the engine warm up and then check your fluid level. If the fluid is dark, smells burnt, or feels gritty you should change the fluid and filter. Sounds like a clogged filter making first gear slip. Watch your tach and see if it revs high on take off this will show if you are slipping in first gear.

Feels like not getting gas transmission slipping


Check your fuel injectors and the filter and even fuse to connect to them. Transmission slipping check transmission fluid or the gears are about to go out so cheaper way try to get it rebuilt or buy a used but it may cause same problem

Transmission will stay in 2nd gear


Hi!!

When was the last time you service the tranny?

Fluid should be topped to level, pinkish in color and no burnt smell.

This happened two months ago; my cousin's Intrigue was slipping on 2nd n 3rd when it reached 2000 rpms. and some times when trying to take off suddenly, Have to released the gas a little and you could feel it engaging again.

Solution: Changed Transmission fluid and filter and added one bottle of RISLONE Transmission Stop Slip and Leak Repair I got at AutoZone ($10), It stopped the slipping after driving the car a couple of miles, you can actually feel more traccion in all gears and my cousin says is even giving more miles X gallon. He drives the car about 80 miles a day and is been over two months since. It may sound like a commercial ad but that stuff works great!!!

Rate this answer and keep me posted!! Good Luck!!

Transmission is slipping getting into gear. It


How many miles? Ever had your transmission serviced? The cheapest way to determine if you need to have your trany replaced is to change the fluid and filter. Also add a quart of good transmission additive. You may want to try the no-slip additive first. Either way it will cost you about $80 if you do your own work.
