It is very likely that a shift solenoid is the culprit, but the only way that you can be sure is to first have the trans pressures checked while the vehicle is running with fords STAR or whatever their OBD tool is. You can monitor trans temp and pressures that way, first things first though, change the trans filter, then if it continues to act up then I would see, but you must remember after a certain year Ford transmissions require Mercon V which is different than ATF + 3 which is your typical dexron ATF fluid.

1997 ford taurus 3.0 ltr trans wont shift into overdrive. first thrugh third gears shift fine but it doesnt try to shift into overdrive at all. the trans shows no signs of slipping and the fluid looks...


Solenoid pack in trans. Position module,is just that. Wrong guess. What tran model do you have? You also have other sensors to consider but have to know the trans your working on and the computer and shift stratagy involved to solve this,even if your throwing parts at it.

98 Ford Escort won't shift into third. Started not


THE GEAR LINKAGE WILL HAVE JUMPED OUT OF ALIGNMENT, ITS A 10mm af spanner to fix it you should see where it was originally placed by the marks on the selector rod linkage.it needs two person job one under the car with the spanner and one positioning the gear lever.

I have a 2001 Volvo S60 with Automatic Transmission. Every once and a while it seems to hesitate when shifting from second to third gears. This happens once every couple of weeks.. I will be excellerating...


When was the last time you had a trans flush ? Sounds like you could use one. Trans fluid breaks down and doesnt work as well as i did when it was new. There are also sensors that tell it when to change gears could also be a sensor. I would start with a trans flush if it were my car. always try the least expensive first. then if u still have the problem look into calling a trusted transservice and ask them if the have any experiance in Volvo trans. if not fluid my bet is on a sensor in the transmission. Good luck and hope this helps ya.
