Hi, I have a 98 Windstar that recently began having transmission problems. When we first drive it starts out fine but once we've driven several miles it will get stuck in 2nd gear.

The switches inside need to be replaced they are hanging up do this now before you ruin the clutches it will go back to normal shifting and work fine change all pressure torque lockup and shift switches diy for about 125.00 with fluid filter cost and back to normal shifting and a happy van and crew make sure vans not running hot burning fluid otherwise will happen again high temp burned fluid damages switches ability to work

1st check the Transmission Fluid level, if good check your shift linkage to see if it is still connected to transmission.

Driving a 2003 Ford windstar. Went to pass and

Very common on this make and model trans, pump drive splines inside torque converter strip out and pump is not turning, Most times there is no damage to pump shaft. Remove trans and remove torque converter, inspect the splines at the very bottom of the hub hole. If stripped out inspected pump shaft splines which are the smaller center splines coming out of trans, if ok replace torque converter and re-install trans, change out fluid, clean any metal from magnet and replace filter, fill with fluid and verify proper operation.

AOD trans wont shift when cold

Ok I have no Idea who told you not to change the fluid? However there is a reason you have to drop the pan to drain it, or change filter and the reason for this is. So you cant just change fuild and leave dirty filter in, or change filter and leave dirty oil in. Your wouldnt just change one or another on your motor would you? lol Anywho your problem is either burnt fuild. Yes the fuild can be come burnt and lose it vascoity, and weight. (basicly your runing gravey through it.) lol Or the fuild is termendously dirty strained or not. FYI there are clutches in your transmission.... Have you ever heard of clutch dust? Well in an automatic because of the fuild its not clutch mud..... explaining why when its cold and the oil is super thick it has problems, but when it thins up when its warm its fine.

98 Caravan. Tranny. Slips time to time not bad though. Has never had fluid changed. This is my wifes van before we got together. Now, the van wont engage into gear until it has been running for about 20...

Yes, Unfortunately transmissions just don't stand up to everyday abuse like they used to. Fluid & filter changes are more critical now than ever. If it were me I would definately have the fluid & filter changed, as well as scanned for codes & perhaps software update. I have heard of many instances where a simple fluid & filter change has remedied the problem in these tramsmissions. If you have it scanned & updated if needed, prior to fluid & filter change, record the codes,then have them erase the codes, do the fluid & filter, try driving for a bit, then re-scan and see what comes up, you may just get real lucky,but no gaurantees. One thing you MUST INSIST on, is that they re-fill transmission with Autopar ATF4 transmission oil & nothing else. No matter what they tell you. Autopar ATF is the only transmission fluid that will give it the best chance to work as it is supposed to. Many cases of erratic, poor shifting has been remedied by changing from some other approved transmission oil, to Autopar ATF. So, go with the fluid & filter first, drive it a bit, and if it doesn't feel quite right, get it scanned again, and see what comes up. If it were me & it felt good after fluid & filter change, I would give it a week or 2 depending on mileage driven, and have it scanned again anyway, just in case. If a code does appear, and is something relatively easy & inexpensive to repair, I'd have it done & save the chance of causing $1000's down the road. People don't think twice about spending $500 + on a brake job,to help them stop, but get mad when it costs $500 to keep them moving. If you don't spend the money to keep you moving, you sure won't need to worry about stopping right? ha-ha Good Luck, keep us informed.
