Are you saying you put a used automatic transmission in a 2006 Ford ranger but now the truck will not move when in gear?

Is the transmission full of fluid?

Are you sure the brakes are not locked up?

JUNK YARD AUTO 2000 RANGER V6 FILLED CONVERTER AND TRANS DOES NOTA THING
Ford Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

When did you get these codes? Any reason you didn't mention them before?

Did you clear the codes after the tranny was installed? Or are these new codes?

DIDNT SCAN PRIOR BEFORE ONLY WENT INTO REVERSE. NOW DOES NOTA
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Y IS 8TH DIGIT
Ford Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

I believe C1751 refers to the speed sensor and/or speedometer. VSS output shorted to battery

C1752 also speed sensor. . VSS output shorted to ground.

B1302 and B1304 power windows

SHIFTER MOVES AT BOX
Ford Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

What box are you referring to?

Does the vehicle even try to move when in gear and the engine reved up?

Ford Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

You might have a pump in that transmission that is bad. I am sure you got at least a 30 day warranty. You might have to take it back or service what you got.

Did that answer your question? If so, kindly leave me a positive rating, so I get credit. After all, you have already made the deposit.
If you don't, the deposit you made will just sit there and I won't get my share of it.

YOU SURE ITS THE PUMP
Ford Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

No, I am not a transmission mechanic but that would explain it.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Ford Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

On some transmissions there is a test plug you can remove and hookup a pressure tester and check it but I would assume a quick check you could crack loose a cooler line, while the engine is idling and if no fluid comes out under pressure than you can just about conclude the pump isn't working.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
