A 1955 Ford would have a Ford-o-matic transmission which has three speeds forward. The transmission starts out in second gear unless you shift into low.
I am not aware of these transmissions having a neutral safety switch.
The 3 speed automatic transmissions that started in low and had a downshift to second under load were first used in the mid 1960s.

My 2004 Tahoe is not shifting in to gear unless I come off the gas some. The speed dail started to stick before this issue started. any ideals.


Instead of a cable, most vehicle's speedometers are controlled by a speed sensor at the tail of the transmission. These do go bad and would cause your speedometer to malfunction. They are not like light bulbs which just die, these sensors will kick in and out irregularly.Secondly you have a thin cable that is connected to your throttle in addition to the throttle cable itself. This second cable is for the kick-down of your transmission. It is utilized when you make a sudden pass of another vehicle to shift down one gear. This cable becomes misaligned at times and will, in a sense, become shortened. Try releasing it from the throttle cam and see how your vehicle reacts then. If it shifts correctly than you need a new kick-down cable.

Auto transmition wont go into 3rd and 4th gear


I had the same problem I changed the transmission fluid & put a new filter in the trans, this fixed it good until I put my foot down to overtake the trans kicked down to 2nd gear & the hold light started flashing again & the trans started slipping again. I stressed over it for a day or 2 & then I took it out for a drive & thrashed it, Low & behold it came right. When you change fluid its impossible to get all the old fluid out because the torque converter holds a liter or two under pressure, so when I put my foot down some of the gunk blew through & blocked the pump it looses pressure & cant change gear. You need to get it flushed by a transmission specialist

hi there, no you are not going to need a new transmission. what is happening is probably one or two things. the transmission fluid is low or the transmission control solenoid is acting up. good luck and appreciate your question
