    What sucks about these vehicles with the CVT transmission is that they hide the dipstick so we can't check it easily ourselves!

When I put my gear into Reverse, Netrual and Drive the gear is getting stiff to move. Why is this happening?


If you mean the shifter is getting hard to move, its probably the shift linkage sticking, try a couple squirts of pblaster or other penetrating oil. If the motion of the vehicle is getting hard to drive in reverse and drive the torque converter may be the issue.

2005 ford five hundred limited 2wd 6spd trans 139k miles. Recently replaced mounts thinking that would stop the trans from downshifting hard at stopping. But since the replacement the rpm will not go over...


What you might try is changing the Trans fluid and putting in a new Trans filter or cleaning the filter if it is not disposable. If this does not help before replacing parts on the Trans ask if your Model has a Software fix.

Many of the newer vehicles have computer programming to control the Trans behavior. Since changing the mounts made a difference, the old parts were obviously worn. Now you need to smooth out the shift points.

If you want to try 1 cheap part, get a TPS (throttle position sensor) which is on the Airhorn. Its function is to set fuel mix and timing advance and to communicate that to the Trans. If the Trans does not know how far the throttle is open, I can see it would not know when to shiift or downshift.
