Question about Ford Explorer Sport
My Explorer has 221635 miles on it and has been a great SUV. About a month ago I started having shift problems. I got the codes from the vehicle and here is what I come up with. Code 629- Converter Clutch Solenoid/ Lockup Solenoid. Second code is 86- 3 and 4 shift solenoid Circuit failure and the last code is code 89-- Lock up Solenoid Failure. All three happened at the same time. Is it time to retire the vehicle? Is this a complete transmission failure and it needs to be rebuilt? Or are the solenoids something that I can replace. With over two hundred thousand miles on it I am not sure what to do. Body and interior are still good.
No this is not a complete trans failure this trans only uses those two solenoids so if it comes down to it replace those two which are in the pan. If all three codes came at the same time try running a ground strap from the frame to the trans, those codes do often occur with bad grounds!
