Ford: My fordxr6 ute is showing transmission fault slipping

My fordxr6 ute is showing transmission fault slipping gears in 3rd and 4th 130,000 km
Hi .

Like all transmission faults is to do the basic checks if not already done .

With a warm engine and running with "P" selected check the fluid level and condition .

Fluid should be a light transparent red to a light Brown.

If a dark brown to black then you have a bad transmission clutch pack and will need O/H .

If fluid is good then you will need to carry out a transmission fluid pressure test.

A bad Valve body will cause you this problem .and set codes .

Depending on the code you may just have a stuck open shift solenoid ,
open or short in the wiring harness.
Internal damage .
Damaged PCM.

Need further assistance then please get back to me with the reply box and not the poor or bad service button .
