      94 XLT 4.0 tow package?
      I just bought a 500$ 94' explorer xlt with a tranny problem. When its cold it doesnt want to shift past first gear but after it warms up it shifts no problem.
      Any idea on what it could be or on how to fix it? Some help would be much appreciated! thanks

      So that would solve it from not shifting out of first when cold, and from 2nd to third?

      I have the same issue with mine, don't really want to swap the trans again unless I have too. I also have no od, can't even put it into od because it won't move almost acts like it halfway into gear
