1990 Ford Bronco II manual transmission extremely hard to shift will not go into reverse


90 Ford Bronco II: You have to put it in whichever gear you want it in before you start it or it wont shift at all. Then once you are going its extremely hard to shift into the other gears. Reverse is the only gear that sounds like its grinding.

1984 Bronco chugs going up hill. It does not go any faster wehen giving more gas.


Does it shift down to lower gear as normally did? If yes, and tune-up has been done recently, perhaps having it tested for plugged exhaust may be a good idea. (catalytic converter) Slow or little acceleration at highway speeds another symptom, as well as decrease in fuel mileage.

I have an 1988 ford bronco 2 automatic V6 i pulled


There are shift solenoids in the transmission and apparently there's a problem them. I would get it to a trany shop and have it checked right away. If you continue to drive it you will ruin the transmission. Are sure you put the right computer in the vehicle? If you put a computer from a Bronco II with a manual trans in a vehicle with an automatic trans, the trans won't work right.

Trans downshifts with gas tap


If the trans has a whine and shifts a little hard then you need to take if to a service center and have the trans flush and filter changed this might correct the problem. But if you have never had the trans fluid change and have 100,000 on it trans might be going bad. Trans fluid and filter should be changed every 40,000 miles.

Ford transmission 86 4wd will not shift to high gear


It is hard to say from your description what the problem is ... could be linkage issue ... could be trans is going as is with the other poster ...
Losing overdrive. Clutches (bands/clutches) have had it. Be careful driving without that top gear ... doing too high a speed without the appropriate gear causes extra stress on your engine that could accelerate further problems. Try to do only driving at a low enough speed that the top gear is not missed ... will help the vehical last as long as possible.
