1991 ford explorer transmision problem??

I have noticed that my vehicle seems to go into gear, but when I try to go, it sometimes hesitates or sometimes won't go. Also, the temperature gage is fluctuating. I just had new shocks and brakes done on it. Could my transmission be going out? It has 190,000 miles on it.

Clutch on my '91 ford explorer

Im pretty sure the vehicle has a bad throw out bearing. That's what's making the noise when you depress the clutch. It would need to be replaced, along with the clutch disc, and pressure plate.

We just bought a 1999 ford explorer for our daughter, when taking off, sometimes the transmission appearred to hesitate in switching gears. My husband change the filter, gasket and fluid. In drive there is...

Just a guess, but it sounds like an internal valving problem (pressures inside are being mis-directed likely by valves that are not closing all the way) This can cause damage to clutches as they are fighting against each other to move the vehicle. It should be checked by a reliable transmission shop immediately. (they have the proper test equipment to determine what needs to be done...(transmissions are not "user friendly" for repairs other than filter service and external adjustments)

Automatic gearbox

Service the transmission fluid and filter, this may be an issue of a dirty filter and worn out trans fluid, use one of the newer synthetic fluids.
