    Transmission help!! 5r55s shift solenoid?

    Hi I've got a 2006 explorer 4.0l that I cannot figure out what to do next. So it wont shift without giving it gas or waiting like 10 seconds. It has a hard time shifting up, it will just slip and slam into gear. I ran my code scanner on it and got a p0750 and p0760 shift solenoid codes. I went...

    5R55E Won't Engage In Any Shifter Position

    I have to start by saying I have read many of your transmission posts in the past and they have been very helpful with a third gear issue I had about a half year ago. I adjusted the band and solved that problem. I also must tell you that you are all much more adventurous about working on...

    New To Forums Need Help Shift Lever Off, Slips

    I just bought a 1999 Ford Explorer XLT 2WD 4.0 SOHC in mint condition with only 118,000 miles and meticulously cared for. The only things I've done to it was aftermarket exhaust and synthetic oil. I had to replace the anti-sway arm bushings as well. The only problem I am having is with the shift...

    Hey guys, first post here, my girlfriend has a 98 4.0l explorer and its not a bad truck but the trans does have some issues. I noticed while driving it it did seem to skip, or slip a little usually while driving up a hill but sometimes youd feel in on flatland. It almost felt like an engine miss...

    Revised Starter/Backup Lamp Switch Electrical Schematic?

    I am striking out finding TSB 92-24B-52, which documents revised wiring for the starter/backup circuit. My truck starts correctly in park/neutral as it should. The problem is that 4-Lo does not work (4-Hi does work). The R/W wire which is the park/neutral input to the Shift Control Module is...

    1995 2nd/3rd shift problems redux

    Hello to everyone! I've been lurking for a while but this has me baffled as for what to do next. I have a 1995 Eddie Bauer with what I assume is the original 4R55E transmission and 164K miles. When I put it in Drive or Reverse there is a moment of hesitation before engagement that doesn't...

    Can it be reprogramed?

    Just got my first Explorer. It's got a lot of miles, but the body and interior is in great shape and it drives good. It's of course got a manifold leak which I've been reading about. My question is, can I get a programmer or chip to reprogram how it shifts and kicks down? I know it's typical...

    2005 Explorer. Broken shifter, part name, availability

    This image is just like the broken column shift on my daughter's 2005 Explorer. I know I can get the alloy part that links to the shift lever aftermarket, but the brass piece on the back side with the hard plastic ball is also damaged. Ford doesn't even seem to have a name for this part. My...

    All gears forward! Don't forget the manual drive lever post!

    I was having problems with the shifting in the 1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer. It was revving up and not shifting and then I would have to lower the RPMs to 1500 RPMs and it would shift. Dropped the transmission pan and the filter, dropped the valve body and found I had a blown gasket. Replaced...

    2015 Explorer bump/harsh shift

    My wife has a 2015 EX and for about 10 months we have noticed a pronounced shift (bump/harsh shift) in the transmission. It seems to happen most between 30-40 mph on acceleration from a yield/stop sign or even red lights that turn green. A few times there has been a bump/harsh shift when braking...

    I recently pulled my motor to replace timing components, and inadvertently caught the eyelet on the end of the shift cable as the motor and trans were on their way out. The eyelet is on the end of a small metal shaft that rides in a plastic sleeve(presumably to keep the shaft straight as you...

    Slow to engage

    I have a 2003 Sportrac 4X4 with the 5r55E. It engages into reverse fine and once it engages in drive it shifts flawlessly. It will shift all day with no problems but it is very slow to engage into drive. It can take up to 20-30 secs when cold. But once it engages it has no problems. What can I do?
