Question about 2003 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

2003 ford windstar shifting problem. It takes off fine, shifts into second then back to first for a moment almost as if it just let go then it goes back into second and is fine from there. It doesn't do this when not up to temp. It seems like a silinoid or speed sensor problem but i've replace shift silinoids 1, 2, 3, and pressure regulating silinoid as well. I just replaced the speed sensor on the top passenger side of trans but not the one on the driver side by the pump and silinoid cover.

    It looks as if the trans is on its way out the door. That really isn't a suprise with windstar though. Ford is still going cheep what else is new right. Thanks for the link timydee.

2003 Ford Windstart erratic shifting


There is a switch on the trans that goes to your computer to let it know what gear you are in. It can go bad and cause these probs. You may have to replace it.

My 03 ford windstar would not shift gear at all, goes into drive but wont shift from first to second


Check the transmission fluid and make sure it is both at the correct level and that it is not burnt smelling or brown. It should be a reddish color. A fluid flush and transmission filter change may be in order.

Failed OBDII Diagnstic trouble codes P0761 and O1744 What does this mean?


code P0761-
Possible causes - Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty shift solenoid 3 valve
- Shift solenoid 3 valve harness or connectors
- Shift solenoid 3 valve circuit is open or shorted
P0761 FORD Description Shift solenoid valve 3 is turned ON or OFF by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the park/neutral position (PNP) switch, vehicle speed and Engine Control Module (ECM) (throttle opening). Gears will then be shifted to the optimum position. When is the code detected? The P0761 code is detected when the ECM has detected a mechanical fault with the solenoid energized, valve stuck off code O1744- is not a code these are the ones I have found that come close

Check your transmission fluid level if at all possible. If your fluid is low you won't be able to engage any gears as there isn't enough pressurized fluid to shift the clutch or selector in the transmission box. If that's fine, next check the selector link and check it is connected to the transmission (not totally unheard of for it to come loose). Still no joy then it's the clutch...sorry.
