2000 ford windstar trans...

2000 ford windstar trans slip in 1st and in to 2nd after that it's fine

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Windstar yourself? What have you tried so far?

Well I checked fluid level ,codes all was good

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?

There was no codes

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Hello, my name is ***** ***** to Just Answer! I will be assisting you with your questions today. Give me one moment while I review this.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

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.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron

Where would you say I should start with these codes

Do the bidirectional tests for the shift solenoids first.

Thanks again, Ron

I'm not sure how to do that test can explain it to my?

It's done with the scan tool and the only way to check these solenoids. They are inside the transmission. There is a bidirectional function on the scan tool to allow these tests.

Thanks again, Ron

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.
