Transmission I recently changed the valve body and solenoid for my 98 ranger , 4.0, 4x4 , automatic, and the OD light still comes on and flashes,, the code says cam shaft position sensor,, the transmission guys say it could also be computer related or fluid leaking past the rings on the inner part of the tranny,, Whats your take on it..

2010 Ford ranger, slips out of gear (from drive to OD) NO check engine light NO code, New filter and oil ( 2.3 automatic ).


Could be TCC solenoid, sticky valves/ valve body, or torque converter. Could be clutch bands also. Needs to be on a scanner.

P0756 FORD - Shift Solenoid 2 Performancexicon.jpghttp://engine-codes.com/p0756_ford.htmlForum CodePossible causes- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty shift solenoid 2 valve
- Shift solenoid 2 valve harness or connectors
- Shift solenoid 2 valve circuit is open or shorted
help.png Help with thisTech notes When the a transmission solenoid is stuck off, in most cases the problem is not the electrical part of the solenoid; the problem is foreign material obstructing the mechanical function of the solenoid or the flow of the fluid through the transmission valve body. If the transmission fluid is very dirty, it is recommend changing the transmission fluid and if possible removing the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan could be an indication that there is a transmission mechanical failure and that the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced.

Ford Ranger 98'Splash don't shift 3rd and


you will need to connect it ti a scanner to confirm but it sounds like your solenoid (there is a solenoid that controls those gears inside your tranny) the part is actually cheap and should take no time to replace. the cost comes in a way of replacing the tranny fluid that will be lost.

Overdrive light flashes on and off


This will occur if the control solenoids that are located inside the pan on the valve body, are malfunctioning. First, i would check the fluid level. if the fluid level is proper, have the tranny flushed and change the filter as well. If this doesn't fix the issue, go ahead and replace the control solenoids.

2002 ford wind star o/d light started flashing after car wash


Two things that it could be.
1 - Look under the hood, there is a wire coming out of the master cylinder, there was a problem with some of the windstars that leak brake fluid, run down the wires and drip on the neutral safety switch, which would cause the light to come on.
2 - This one solved my problem. It could be the transmission valve body that needs to be updated or changed out. There are many issues with these valve bodies. Slipping from 1-2, OD light blinking, shift 1-2-3-2, late down shift from 3-2. I had all of these.
If you do some work on cars, then you should be able to change out the valve body yourself, with a torque wrench. I picked one up on ebay for $180 with shipping both ways, and took my about 2 hours. My Windstar never drove so good.
-fyi, The OD solenoid is inside the transmission.

I have a 1989 Toyota Supra GA70, It has an A340E Autoatic Transmission. The problem is sometimes during takeoff it is very sluggish, this only happens sometimes, and other time it takes off normally. ...


EASY! first take down the valve body and remove the soleniods, they may not need replacing, inspect and cean them, it could just be debris! reinstall everything, if the problem still occurs replace just the solenoids
