Question about 2005 Ford Freestar

1 Answer

My 05 freestar mini vans transmission slips when i try to drive it. Reverse doesn't work either. When I put it in neutral the rpm's rev higher. The pcm and wiring harness has been replaced thinking that its an electrical problem. It worked for about 2 weeks then repeated the same problem. Next the transmission fluid was changed after discovering water in it from dropping the pan. It was then flushed a few times. This lasted 4 months and now the same problem. A light indicating a yellow gear with an exclamation mark in the middle comes on. Does this van have electrical or mechanical problems.

SOURCE: 1999 F250 only goes in reverse, no forward gears.

I believe that reverse is operated by a brake band. So it seems to be stuck. It is operated by a piston, and the seal could have swelled and caused too much friction. But you could loosen up the adjustor so that it is disengaged, in order to get forward gears again. Perhaps you can force the piston to retract as well, once you drop the pan again.

SOURCE: Have 95 E150 econoline van,108,000 miles.van stalls when shifted to reverse,if i wait for idle to rev up sometimes works.Now vans stalling at red lights,after 2 hrs. driving.Had throddle position sens

Usually the problem is due to a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve. Stalling in reverse and not in drive is unusual.

2005 chrysler town and country when i start the van it shaking vibration hard in park and in reverse it and in neutral and in drive it perfect.it drives good on highways no shaking


try to increase the idle-rpm..
Example - at standstil condition when you start your van, have look at rpm... say 1000 or 1200 or 1500.. whatever it may be..
Keep idle-rpm a little bit higher, if previously it was 1200rpm then set it to 1500 rpm..
If the problem is solved then..
1) clean ur airfilter
2) check spark plug condition
good or bad... if bad then replace..
3) check fuel supply line, if it is damaged or folded

My car is in Drive but does not go above 2nd Gear? What is wrong with it. Saurn Sl '93


Who care about the Service soon light,since you stated you are a 1993 you are OBD 1,this is not a bad thing but if you pulled a code it would probable read 02 lean bank 1, The real problem is the whole transmission,Wont rev higher in other word its slipping,need to rev higher just to start moving ,well its slipping the solution is a rebuilt transmission,or a better car.

2006 freestar will not go into any gear. all gears give the apperance of neutral except park.


This is a recall just like the 2005 Freestars. Your Freestar more and likely has a defective torque converter and worn out splines in your transmission. This is a life threatening recall and Ford inc has been looking at it as a casual recall. Get this to your Ford dealer today and have them fix it at no charge to you. Problem solved.

95 eagle vision esi slips out of gear at stops


there is a limp mode but I doubt if that is the problem
It indicates that the torque converter clutch servo/solenoid is faulty
run the fault codes to confirm if that is it or a faulty TCM
check wiring around the transmission

My honda 2003 jerks when i change gear from to Reverse or Drive. Also, when on Neutral or Park, the revs/s is about 2. i dont know if that's normal. thanks


The revs should be around 700- 900 rpm while in neutral. Revs about 2 (2000 rpm) is absolutely abnormal, and of course the vehicle will **** with any gear change. Furthermore, continued operation of the car in this condition will damage the transmission. Seems like the idle sensor, MAP sensor or other part is working incorrectly. Take vehicle to a shop for a scan of the computer and repair, in order to save the VERY costly transmission.

I was driving today in my 2004 Ford Freestar van when all of a sudden the transmission stopped being engaged. I pulled over, no problem with the moter, but it would not slip back into drive reverse etc. No...


I have seen a problem with torque convertors on these vehicles, they will just all the sudden neutral out and that is it no noise no codes nothing... alot of times depending on the failure of the convertor just the convertor can be changed.... what usually happens is the splines inside of the convertor sheer off and once a new convertor is put in everything is back to normal.

My 1994 caravan drives about 200 feet then starts slipping.If I turn the ignition off and back on it will go another 200 feet.friends told me it is some sort of sensor .does any know whats going on .thanks


Please define the word "slipping" for me. To me it means the transmission is "slipping", the van is going down the road, and then the engine RPM's are still there, but the van keeps slowing down ? You try to put on more acceleration, but the engine revs up higher, but you go nowhere ?
Please let me know.
