Question about Ford Aerostar

1 Answer

When transmission is put into D - overdrive it spins out as if it were in neutral. you have to start out at D1, then shift to D2, then D. if you leave it in D its ok, you can stop then start back up again without shifting, if you shift into Overdrive and then it downshifts , you are stuck again with no forward power, engine just idles. If you go from Park to reverse then into D (not overdrive) then you are OK as long as you do not shift into overdrive. So basically: you cannot start out into overdrive, and you cannot let the car automatically shift down from overdrive or it will just spin as if in Neutral. Can it be fixed without a complete overhaul? should i just get the used tranny and be done with it.

Hi, you don't need to replace the tyranny to fix the problem, it's possible that the TV cable is adjusted incorrectly and if the cable is too loose, it can cause the downshift which can latter also affect other gears..
It can be fixed without a complete overhaul....

I have a 95 silverado c1500 with 4l60e trans and it wont go into overdrive


overdrive is the fourth gear.D1,D2,D3,D4 now drive truck at 80 kmh
cruise at steady speed no fuel pedal movement, downshift from D4 to D3 you should feel RPM raise .. after push brake pedal a little you should see RPM raise 300 to 400 rpm.
shift pattern is 1st gear ,second gear,3rd gear and lock up(torque converter clutch). 4th gear with lock up
hope it helps

1995 Nissan Altima Stuck in First Gear


1. check transmission fluid level or if you can change the fluid & filter.
2. check throttle position sensor (tps).
3. if fluid level & tps are ok & still not upshifting automatically, temporarily (so you can take it to a transmission specialist) , try to manually shift. starting from dead stop, shift to D1. at about 25mph shift to D2. (be gentle on the accelerator & don't over rev on each gear. release accelerator pedal & don't step on the brakes while shifting from D1 & D2).

You may have a problem with your IPC (Instrument Panel Cluster) which often can be exchanged for a serviced and warrantied replacement unit.

First thing I would try...disconnect the battery for 10 minutes which will allow the on board computers to re-start.

If this doesn't help... I would retrieve any stored codes the on-board computer has logged which may provide a starting point to diagnose your trouble.

Nothing wrong with being a blonde!! it's best to have it to the one right after "N", that will have the transmission go into overdrive on the freeway, the others are for if you want to "manually" go thru the gear selections.

Car will not shift into gear


Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

F150 transmission neutralizes when shifts to overdrive


I have that exact same truck and transmission and My Transmission did the exact same thing about a year ago and there was some kind of snap ring inside the transmission that broke. I originally thought it had to be an electirical problem because the truck shifted fine until OD or if i turned OD off. The 4r70w is a light transmission and i would suggest you have a shift kit put in and they make a heavier kit to beef it up.. Sorry its probably not the new you were looking for.
