Don't listen to these idiots on here, I am a ASE Certified Ford Technician, and Im telling you that theses trans are junk. I have a 08 Fusion in the shop now. I have done Three, yes 3 Trans swaps on this and the problem isn't fixed. Cannot get out of second gear. Its telling me shift solenoid b electrical / stuck open, its not the shift solenoids, its the TCM FLASH THE TCM. Put A jumper witre from your hot battery post, while disconnecting the negative terminal from the battery. Hook your jumper wire from the positive cable (still on battery) to your negative terminal (off the battery). This sends a ground signal to the electrodes and capicitors to discharge any power remaining, which will put the car into a relearn mode. Let the car sit for about 15 minutes like this. Then Hook your battery back up, get into your car turn the key to the on position without starting the car. Then press your break pedal 3 times then start your car. Allow the car to FULLY warm up, that means allow it to run for appr. 30 minutes, 45 on a cold day. This will allow the TCM to relearn your driving habits. Then drive your car slowly and easily and it should settle itself out. The next thing to do if that doesn't work change the TCM

SOURCE: 06 ford focus 5spd. no 1st, 3rd, or 5th gear.

It sound like the gear linkage isn,t set up right, you wouldn,t always be able to engage a gear unless you rocked the car.

If the Linkage is not damaged, you are going to need to pull the Transmission out.

The part that went bad is called the SYNCRO's

Transmission wont shift into gear unless i turn


Ford Explorers are nice, but are commonly known for the trannsmssion to fail, I know becuase I know of people who also went through this tranny problem, Get it fixed and install a new tranny cool, heat is the number one cause for failure. I personally wouldn't get a Explorer from other peoples experiences.
