What would cause transmission to shudder first thing in the morning when you start the engine and put it in reverse on a 2004 ford explorer v8 4.6


If car has high miles, trans wear could cause this. I would try removing 1 quart of new fluid and replace with Lucas trans additive.

2002 explore,hard shifting,no o/d light flashinh?


These symptoms are usually caused by improper transmission fluid level or need for fluid and filter change in transmission.
Once you have serviced the transmission (which should be done every 5 years or 50,000 miles), any other issues can be identified by doing a readout of codes from the computer, using code reader.

i know you cannot check your transmission fluid like years prior to the 2002 they made this model so you have to take it into the shop/dealership to have them check your levels, and change the transmission. They are trying to eliminate the backyard mechanic from doing maintenance on the vechicles

How do you know when you need to change your transmission fluid in my 2002 ford explorer


This is in the owners manual pages 269 and 270. TRANSMISSION FLUID
Checking automatic transmission fluid (if equipped)
The automatic transmission does not have a transmission fluid dipstick.
Refer to your scheduled maintenance guide for scheduled intervals for fluid checks and changes. Your transmission does not consume fluid. However, the fluid level should be checked if the transmission is not working properly, i.e., if the transmission slips or shifts slowly or if you notice some sign of fluid leakage.
Transmission fluid should be checked and, if required, fluid
should be added by a qualified technician.
Do not use supplemental transmission fluid additives, treatments or cleaning agents. The use of these materials may affect transmission operation and result in damage to internal transmission components. Checking and adding manual transmission fluid (if equipped)
1. Make sure the vehicle is on a level surface or level hoist.
2. Clean the filler plug or dirt and debris.
3. Remove the filler plug and inspect the fluid level.
4. Fluid level should be at bottom of the opening.
5. Add enough fluid through the filler opening so that the fluid level is at the bottom of the opening.
6. Install and tighten the fill plug securely.
Use only fluid that meets Ford specifications. Refer to the Lubricant Specifications in this chapter.

My Ford Explorer 2002 transmission is starting to slip, especailly when it is cold. I checked with local Lube & Go business and they check the transmission oil level. It was good, but probably needs...


Actually, it would be impossible to change the fluid in a 2002 Ford Explorer transmission because it is a sealed "maintenance-free" unit. Ford claimed that this transmission should operate problem free for 150,000 miles, but as we know, this is not the case. Since the transmission cannot be flushed, premature wear occurs due to degradation of the fluid. This is just one of the MANY design mistakes made by Ford engineers during the end of the "disposable car" era. My best advice to you would be to sell the vehicle before you end up spending a fortune on repairs, and if you really love the Explorer, buy one that was built after 2005.
