LOST ALL TRANNY FLUID

HI, I HAVE A 94 FORD EXPLORER WHICH LOST ALL TRANNY FLUID AT A STOP SIGN.I DUMPED ENOUGH IN TO GET THE TWO BLOCKS HOME,THEN STARTED THE SEARCH FOR THE PROBLEM. THE HOSES FROM THE TRANNY COOLER ARE OK THERE IS NO FLUID LOSS AT THE CASE WHERE THE STEEL HOSES CONNECT NOR DID THERE SEEM TO BE ANY FLUID NEAR THE MODULATOR VALVE BOTH SIDES ARE DRY THE FLUID SEEMS TO HAVE EVACUATED WHERE THE BELL HOUSE MEETS THE TRANNY ONLY ON THE VERY BOTTOM THERE SHOWS A LITTLE FLUID WHERE THE WIND BLEW THE LEAKING FLUID BACK ON THE TRANNY PAN . IN THE DRIVE WAY I ADDED FLUID AND IT WOULD DRIVE FORWARD BUT NO REVERSE IT WAS PLACED IN NEUTRAL AND ATTEMPTED TO PUSH IT REARWARD NO LUCK PUSHING . AT FIRST I THOUGHT THE FRONT TRAN SEAL WAS GONE ,BUT WHY WONT IT ALLOW ITSELF TO BE PUSHED REARWARD WITH THE MOTOR RUNNING AND FLUID ADDED IN NEUTRAL. IM STUMPED NOW IM THINKING A COMPLETE REBUILD ANYONE HAVE ANY PROBLEMS EXPLAINED?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it sounds like you either lost your torque converter or the forward seal on the tranny most likely do to an inner pump problem. All this adds up to a transmission rebuild unfortunately.

I have a 93 explorer and the tranny or oil is leaking really bad I think it's the tranny because it only leaks when in gear and its a bad leak it makes a line when I back up and take off or just sit s


Those A5 trannies are junk and can set the vehicle on fire in less than 5 minutes with low fluid. Red fluid is tranny, oil is oil. Rear seal-oil- big repair. Tranny coolant pipes-Tranny fluid-small repair. Replace filter, fluid, and gasket-it's probably over due-and check again for leaks. rear tranny seal leak, average size job.. Never use the stop leak! Throwing flour on the tranny works better-Just kidding.

I need help, have tranny fluid in my radiator.... i have been rebuilding a 94 f-250, 2wd, e4od tranny, 5.8liter. , and my tranny fluid is milky, changed radiator, and problem still exists.. do i have my...


The only way that tranny fluid could get into the radiator is through the transmission cooler, which is inside the radiator. Maybe the replacement rad is NFG. In any case, the torque converter holds a lot of fluid, so just draining the tranny oil pan isn't enough. The torque converter needs draining as well to get all the bad stuff out. You probably just didn't get all of the old fluid out of it. Good luck with that.

My 1997 ford explorer overheated and the transmission slipped


Tranny fluid may have been contaminated with coolant since tranny cooler lines go to radiator or condensor.
I would fix your leak on radiator, then completely drain tranny fluid and filter and replace.

Popping Sound in Steering Gear - 94 F150


this is a guess but the inner tie rod and tie rod end (you have one of each on each side of the truck), wear out and make a loud clunk, mostly when changing direction, but also on starting & stopping. ABout a $200 repair including a front end alignment.

Call at least 3 shops for an estimate including your Ford dealer.
