1st.. check fuse for clutch solenoid/relay. 2nd... replace clutch solenoid/relay. 3rd... check for damaged wiring to trransmission or connector to transmission. If all these are correct, see your Ford Dealer.

1998 ford windstar will not shift out of 2nd gear . I can manually shift from 1st to 2nd but it will not shift out of 2nd.


The best thing to do is take it back to the dealer, or a reputable transmission shop. Transmissions are highly technical and the average backyard mechanic can not work on them. It could be a servo or clutchpack inside the transmission, or an electrical problem, since the transmission is computer controlled.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan will not shif into 2nd


Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.

Transmission jerks


One possibility is that the speed sensor is going out. When that happens the computer gets bad information and thus makes bad decisions. When the car goes into 2nd all of the solenoids are actually off. That is so if there is some kind of problem the transmission gets no power, then it still has P, R, N, 2nd. It would be kind of weird, maybe, to see only the 1-2 shift being affected but I can't really think of anything else that could cause that kind of problem.

Van drops into 1st gear after 15 miles


What does the speedometer do when this happens? If it goes dead at the same time you need a Vehicle Speed Sensor which is mounted to the transmission. It tells the ECM what your speed is and without the input from the sensor, the computer assumes the van isn't going very fast and locks in 1st gear.
