      Welcome to this forum! I've moved your thread into the UK Explorer owners section. Check the internal wiring harness, and the solenoids before you replace the whole transmission. What is the year of your vehicle?

      hi and welcome, not really but does mean a rebuild, the 5 gear band could have snapped. i take it you can only go around in 4 gears when your on speeds over 55mph

      5th gear is virtual (computer controlled), and not a physical gear. You could check the adjustment of the bands to see if the adjusting studs keep turning without tightening to spec.
