Sounds like the transmission tourgue converter lock up is engageing.....I solved this for a buddy of mine However you are going to need the assistance of a computer and the BMW interface device. (you can buy on E-Bay if you plan on keeping a BMW around then it's a good investment) using this device and your laptop you need to clear the code that is being stored in the computer. actually you should read the code first. If you wish to try it the "Poor man's way take off the battery Neg lead for 10-15 min then put back on and see if your error comes back. If so then go and get the code reader or go to someone who has one to read the code.....

Good Luck

Is there anyway to flat tow my 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT. with no 4 wheel drive?


Hello Poca Buchanan,

WRONG.

Your "rental" FOLKs do NOT know of what they speak.

Your owners manual... Pages 192 & 246 both confirm... that your vehicle can be towed... and the SPECIFIC CIRCUMSTANCES.

Drive wheels can only be towed in EMERGENCIES...
NOT to exceed 35 miles per hour...
Not to exceed 50 miles...!!


~~
If the drive wheels are off the ground... REGULAR TOWING PRECAUTIONS SHOULD APPLY.

(lets say a rear wheel drive... if the REAR WHEELS are on a carrier... you should be all PEACHES (reverse tow)).


If you cannot limit your distance or speed... and drive wheels are ON-THE GROUND...

Your DRIVE SHAFTS should be removed to protect the transfer case and/or transmission (by an AUTHORIZED FORD TECHNICIAN).


If you require assistance or clarification on Ford Motor Company policies or procedures, please contact the Ford Customer Relationship
Center at 1-800-392-3673 (FORD)

Hope this helps!!

I would check the wheel bearings and CV axles first. If they are good. The rear planet in the transmission is going out. Rebuild or replace.

I have a 1991 mercury tracer wagon. I took off from a stop light under moderate acceleration. the vehicle reached approximately 45 miles per hour when it felt like the transmission was shifted to neutral,...


Not without having a transmission shop look at it.
Could be a failed pump, valve body, even something inside the differential. But if it involved the axles you would also not have any hold in park.

I have 2001 Merc 430ML what is the Low Range botton mean?


low range means you are in 'low range 4 wheel drive' push the button while the engines running and the gear shift levers in neutral to switch to high range [or 2x4] low range,cannot drive over 15 miles per hour,high range can drive up to 65 miles per hour. see the difference? you need to shift the transmission to neutral,while the engines running,and your foot on the brake pedal, push the button on the 4x4 to light up to the two wheel or rear wheel diagram. then when it lights up the 2 rear wheels, it's in rear wheel drive. if this does'nt describe your problem! please do not attempt anything and call toll free# for mercedes roadside assistance for free at 1-877-815-9962 these people have been a great asset to my buisness. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Car will not shift into gear


Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

1993 4X4 BLASER 4WHEEL DRIVE


Your blazer is equipped with a shift on the fly four wheel drive. That means that at speeds less than fifteen miles per hour you can shift into or out of four wheel drive by simply pushing the four wheel high button. If you wish to shift into four wheel low. Stop, put the transmission into park or neutral, and push the four wheel low button. Same procedure for shifting back out. Never shift into or out of four wheel low while moving. And be careful in four wheel low. At full throttle your still barely moving, you don't want to blow your engine up!
