Question about Ford F-350

Open Question

Hi i have a 95 ford f-350 it doesnt shift into third gear. i put a new sensor on it when i first got it because it was doing the same thing which fixed it. next i went off roading with it and got alot of water into the transmission. now it wont shift into third again. i put a new filter and oil in it to see if that was my problem but it isnt. i also put a new sensor in the rear end and that wasnt my problem. then i replaced the sensor on the side of the trans and it still doesnt work. i got the oil in it pretty clean by flushing it out. any suggestions on why it wont shift into third? it shifts into 1st and 2nd fine just not third. also my front seal is blown out and it leaks oil by the bell housing. could it be because i dont have enough pressure for it to shift?

The accelator cable is "Y" shaped. one side goes to the carb and the other to the tranmission. If you have the carb.side too tight it will give you the problem that you are having.

SOURCE: Transmission won't shift!

Does it just not shift up to 3rd or when it shifts to 3rd it is just like neutral?

SOURCE: 4L60E Shifts fine in 1st, 2nd, & 3rd but will not shift into OD

The EMC detected and problem so it's in limp mode, As long as it's in limp mode the 4th and OD will not activate. Take care not to burn up the transmission by running it hard while your in the limp mode.
Your going to have to get the truck scanned to clear any codes and why there are DTC codes. Auto Zone scan for free and most auto shops charge $10.00 to $20.00 to scan sine they want the business.
If you want to clear the codes your self you can put the ignition to the run position and pull the ECM (Batt) fuse out for 20 sec and place it back in then start the truck. It may stall but let it, just start it again and this would have cleared all the DTC code history.
The transmission should be running fine unless there is a problem and the service engine light will be on again and you'll be in limp mode still with an updated DTC in the ECM.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Why doesnt my 1988 98 oldsmobile shift into third gear


If it is a manule trans then you need to shift it sooner. And for the reason it will not go into third gear is the gear could be gone or the saycronizer is bad. You will have to put in a new trans or get this one fixed in order to get third gear.

My 95 ford explorer shifts hard in reverse and i have to let off the gas to get it to go into third gear it seems to be slipping somewhat. But if i let off the gas it shifts. texasgrimmy@yahoo.com


check your tranmission fuild could be low or need to be changed their is also a filter for the transmission, you can put some lucas in the transmission to help it stop slipping!

My automatic escort will not shift out of first gear. I will drive in first gear, slip it into neutral, then back into drive, and will get second gear for about five seconds. Any ideas?


Try replacing Speed sensor.I have 95 Escort that while driving for about 20 miles would shift into low gear and not shift back into higher gears.After letting it sit for awhile it would drive fine for about 20 miles then do the same thing.Had the speed sensor replaced and works fine now.

1997 ford taurus 3.0 ltr trans wont shift into overdrive. first thrugh third gears shift fine but it doesnt try to shift into overdrive at all. the trans shows no signs of slipping and the fluid looks...


Solenoid pack in trans. Position module,is just that. Wrong guess. What tran model do you have? You also have other sensors to consider but have to know the trans your working on and the computer and shift stratagy involved to solve this,even if your throwing parts at it.

Have a 1996 f-350 7.3 power stroke w/auto trans, shifts fine from 1st to 2nd then in and out from third back to 2nd ,took to transmission shop trans fine but no power going to trans also odometer jumos...


HI, I have a 350, brand new in one of my old skool muscle cars with a 350 trans that used to be a drag car trans.
We changed the gears in it to street gears (4:11 to 3:55 gears) and every once in a while it will not go to the high gear, so I pull over, put it in park then back to driving and it works beautiful each time!!!!
Nothing is wrong with this car at all, brand new engine and trans in a oldskool muscle car!!!
*** The point to the story is; nothing mechanical is "PERFECT", only God's creations right. ;)
So the moral is more than likely the problem is from the area of the "engine to the trans"(that junction) and I will say your trans gears may have problems, one look doesnot make it true!
Get a second mechanic to look at the trans inside...
Also, if you have too much fluid in the trans it will all be floating in trans fluid and will give you the same effect in any gear....

My 95 nissan maxima shifts hard from first to second then shifts good the rest of the gears


Look into issues with the throttle position sensor, i had the same problem with a 95 se. The sensor is directly responsible for shift intervals as it gives the ecm throttle position which doesnt go hand and hand with rpm. Sometimes the sensor needs adjustment, however this is not recommended if you dont have a scan tool to reset your ecm. check this page out
