    wanted to intro myself. just aquired a '95 explorer and am finding myself immediately looking for info about my new ride. the transmission is not engaging well and the o/d off light is blinking. also the explorer wont shift into overdrive. any help with my newest venture would be appreciated. thanks for having a forum for ford rookies! :)

    Welcome

    one common problem is the OD band is broken or one of the other bands. it will give a bad code, such as slow solenoid switch or similar but the actual problem is a band

    if you drop the tranny cover there might be a part floating around in the pan

    The band is cheap $20 and maybe $50 for rebuild seals, but the job is not exactly for the do it yourselfer, and maybe costs the same as the entire vehicle if you paid a mechanic. If really need a tranny the best deal might be picking one up from a wreckers.

    preliminary quotes are at $2200-2400 for a complete rebuild of the trans. or around 1800 for a replacement from a wrecker.

    Get a new Trans....It's not worth the savings on an unknown Tranny, that will repeat the same problem..

    dropped it off tonight at another tranny shop to get a second opinion. really have to weigh the options of spending that much money on a vehicle that only books for that much. they will run a full computer diagnosis and several other tests for no cost. cant hurt to let someone else have a look.
