Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if the trans is going into limp in. When the controller sees an issue it thinks can cause damage or thinks it doesn't have complete control then it will lock you in a single gear.

There are many possible causes for limp in including solenoids, speed sensors, wiring, internal trans or valve body issues. Limp in is most often an electrical issue, assuming there is no slipping.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes are setting, and then testing would need to be done at the time the problem is happening to know exactly what is going on.

I see that you opened a duplicate question. I responded to your question yesterday but the post went to another question due to a site issue. PLease respond in this thread.

Does the ABS light stay on at the time the trans doesn't shift?

The abs light does not come on.
What i have noticed, after erasing the codes, while driving 1st to 4th gear it shifts fine, then from 4th to 5th then to 6th, i hear like farting sound after couple of times doing the the wrench light comes on , when it comes on it goes to limp home stuck on 3rd. But after a few hours of rest without erasing any codes the car will shift fine 1st to 4th again.

I wanted get other opinion too thats why i did a duplicate question, but it also went to you. Anyways have you had this problem before? Are you a ford or lincoln tranny guy?
UK Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I responded to the other question after the first expert opened it for others, because it was a duplicate which should have been closed and I was directing you back to this page.

If you don't wish to work with me I can open this question for other experts to see if another will respond.
