Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.
Here’s the sequence of events I follow:
Check fluid level and color.Make appropriate repairs.
Check shift solenoids with a scan tool in bidirectional mode if applicable. Shift solenoids are inside the transmission and this is the easiest way to check them.
Drop pan and inspect for excessive metal shavings inside pan.
Check valve body and clutches visually.
Hopefully you may not have to go this far, maybe you just were a bit low on fluid.
This procedure will unfold the problem, we don't want to guess.
Okay, I saw the link you sent me. Good advice. I would have continued with additional information for you as you conversed with me too:)
Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
That would have been my next suggestion too seeing that you had very little metal shavings. Too bad you can't get a scan tool hooked up to that. You can get one from most parts stores for free, just a deposit. I sure like to see how those shift solenoids are working.
