Hi:) Most transmissions don't use vacuum to shift with anymore it is done by Hydraulic pressure and electronic servos operated by the Computer and a transmission that shifts hard could have a warren valve in the valve body that is letting to much Tranny fluid thought to the accumulators and that would cause the tranny to shift hard. Take it in to the shop before it destroy's the clutches in the transmission.

You have none and as for a vacuum leak no, Check engine light would pick up lean bank codes. aWhat you need to do is have the vehicle on a level ground engine warm vehicle in park check the transmission fluid,A low transmission fluid does and will cause a hard upshift as you have to raise the RPM. You should also change the transmission fluid with the filter. Also check the color of the transmission fluid it should be Red if its blackish it is burnt and the transmission service will not help you.

Could you show me or tell mewhere the transmission filter is located on a 1997 ford contour 2.5ltr. v-6?


You have to drop the transmission pan with gasket to get to the transmission filter. About 5 quarts or so of transmission fluid will come out when you drop the pan. You have to buy a new transmission gasket. Do not reuse the old gasket.

Where does the rubber hose by the transmission range sensor go to on a 99 ford contour 4 cycl


There is a small vent hose that mounts on a black plastic clip by the battery hold down bolt/ nut., if not properly installed fluid will leak from the transmission, while driving the vehicle, we had a new battery installed and the little hose dropped down toward motor.

1997 pontiac Sunfire will not shift into gear. I can shift it by hand with the lever on top of the transmission but it still will not move. Is there a vacum modulater on this model of car?


a vacum modulator does not prevent a car from shifting into gear. Usually when a car fails to move, internal parts of the transmission break and sometimes shatter prevent the clutch pack from functioning. The purpose of a vacum modulator is to allow the transmission to shift smoothly from one gear to the next, but now on allot of cars these days transmissions are solely controlled by the computer. If you transmission does have a vacum modulator then your will find a steel vacum line from the engine going to your transmission with short pieces of hose connecting the lines together.

!997 Ford Contour not shifting properly. It is taking too long to shift out of first but if you take your foot off the gas it will shift when you want. Fluid level is ok


Not positive. But i think it is modulation valve. Or transaxle valve or selenoid? Maybee a vacuum leak comming from transmission to intake? Check em all out. Will it shift manually ok?

Code 0708 in Ford Contour 1997


Trouble code P0708 means:Transmission range sensor circuit high input .
Other words the "neutral safety switch". it may have gone bad or the wire harness is damaged. It's mounted on top of the transmission where the gear selector cable connects to the transmission. Good luck and hope this helps.
