SOURCE: transmission problem with 2001 Ford Escort

There is a small rubber piece behind the brake pedal that usually wears down of breaks that depresses the brake pedal switch, check the switch first, if that is okay then there is also the adjustable rod that is what the button on the auto shifter moves, remove the shifter, see if you can depress the rod manually and shift, if you can shift like that, unscrew the rod slightly to adjust it to a working height. Also, you have a shift lock release button through the small tab to the right of your shifter... a zip tie on the tab will allow you to shift but will not make it possible to "slip" shift or cause any other problems.

I have a 96 ford escort that when it shifts from first to second it shudders but has no other issue, is there a band adjustment or does it mean my tranny is failing ?

Might be a band adj. but you might want to ck the trans. fluid and replace if it's dirty, also the filter befor you take it to a trans. shop.

2000 ford ranger pulls in reverse but not in drive, whats the problem?

When you say "pull" I assume you mean it wont go foward..
1st thing -check the trani fluid while the engine is running in park..
The tranies in these trucks are known to give out.. Reverse is usually run on the 3rd gear band.. It could mean that the band for 1st gear is damaged.. Could also be a vacume & or modulator issue.. Some trani shops give free estimates..

Ford ranger trany

Yes you can adjust the bands, but not for 1st gear. Of the two bolts you see, the front one is for 4th gear and the rear one is for 2nd. Is first gear the only problem you have? Does 1st gear work fine if you use manual 1st?
