      Im new to this forum. Im having trouble with my 5r55e transmission in my ranger. First off i lost reverse and and only had 1st 2nd and 3rd. I ive rebuild a few trans i thought i rebuild this one. The direct clutches were fried so i thought i found the problem. Finished the rebuild put a superior shift kit in the valve body. I still dont have reverse and and forward is there but if u give it more gas is starts to slip. Cant go faster than 15mph. So i bought a rebuilt vb nothing chanced. Left the shift kit out but the pressure riser on the epc wires. Help would be appreciated

      You will need to get some pressure readings first off. The thing that comes to mind is a failed OD sprag/one way clutch. But in order to to move forward would require you to put it in manual low to get moving and then shift up into drive. Put a pressure gauge on it before you end up smoking the clutch packs. Good luck.

      If you start it moving in manual low can you shift up through the gears and keep moving?
