Question about 2006 Mazda Tribute
2006 Mazda Tribute. Check engine light came on, code stated the Neutral Safety Switch was bad. We replaced the switch, but now while driving, the vehicle "search" for which forward gear it wants to be in. It'll jump from 2nd to 1st, sometimes into neutral, sometimes takes off in 2nd, etc. I'm thinking the NSS was installed in the wrong position, and needs to be adjusted properly. Any advice on how to do this? Or what else the problem might be?
possible but it can also be a range selecter switch problem. any work done on vehicle lately? pleas respone and i will try my best to help thanks.

IT IS THE STRAINER INSIDE THE PAN IN THE TRANSMISSION,WHEN ITS COOL THE FLUID IS TO THICK TO TRAVEL AND GRITTY TO GO THROUGH THE STRAINER SCREEN,BUT WHEN THE TRANNY WARMS THE FLUID ITS THEN ABLE TO FLOW THROUGH THE SCREEN AND SHIFT PROPERLY.

Sounds like you have lost the transmission. There are bands that clamp down to lock the transmission into the gear you want. They are controlled by a hydrolic unit located in the trans. The first thing I would do is have a shop pull the trans oil pan and see if it is full of chips of metal. If so you definately have a problem. At the same time they can look at the bands and see if one of them is broken. another cause would be that metal has gotten into the hydrolic valve body and frozen the drive band portion so it will not function. You may also get lucky and have it be an internal adjustment of the drive band. Good Luck, RAC
