Check the transmission motor mounts.If the motor mounts are weak then it will cause the car to "bang" into gear when it gets overheat. Also get the transmission fluid and filter checked.If its low then get the fluid changed.If filter is old get it replaced too.It will take a day or two to get the flow.The bang noise will get reduced by this.Get all this parts first checked and confirmed before any kind of replacement. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

I am looking at buying a 1999 Ford contour. To


it sounds like the first gear is shot. starting of in drive two skipps first. this is for when stuck in mud or snow by starting in higher gear it gives less torque so the wheel won't slip as much.

96 Ford Contour CD4E Auto Trans.


The item referred to needing adjustment in the previous reply is called the MLP (manual lever position sensor). It tells the computer electronically that the car is in P, R, N, D, 2,1 (depending on the gear selector) It also allows the car to only be started in P and N for safety.
If it is out of adjustment, the sensor is misaligned with it's reference point on the gear selector rod, which goes into the trans case and pushes/pulls a rod that moves the selector piston/valve. The valve will be in the right place but the computer will say other wise and it controls the shifting with the solenoids.
SOURCE INFO:
{MLP transaxle function: determion desired gear and electronic pressure control (EPC) pressure:
Symptoms: Harsh engagements and firm shift feel, engine may not crank, may downshift to a lower gear, 2nd or 3rd gear operation, transaxle not inicating the proper gear, no 4th gear operation. no manual first gear.}
Another point of interest is the EPC (electronic pressure control)solenoid inside the black side cover.
Failed OFF-maximum EPC pressure, harsh engagements and harsh shifts.

Another possible issue may just worn out clutches if the unit has high mileage or maybe verify fluid level and recent change of fluid. The filter is inside unit and trans has to be removed to change, some Hondas are like this too.
