Question about 1994 Ford Explorer Limited
Have a 1994 explorer 4wd and recently noticed that seemed like the transmission is slipping. Checked the fluid changed the transmission filter. Problem is now getting worse, will not stay in park, continues to roll, goes in reverse fine, but when put into drive you have to rev it up to about 3000 rpm's before it will actually kick in and take off. Need some advise as to what to do, do you think it is the actual transmission or something electrical, put eh code machine on it and it will not give off codes?
The first thing you need to fix is the fact that it will not go into park. I think the shift lever is maladjusted. There should be a way to adjust it near the transmission. Get this dealt with because I am thinking it could be a simple problem. If after you get it adjusted, it still does not immediately kick in to drive, then I think you have a serious tranny problem. You did not say how many miles were on the car, but if it has high miles (more than 100,000) and it has not ever been rebuilt, then it will probably need to be. The trannys in these Explorers were notoriously bad.
