    Transmission Behavior Change After Extended Highway Driving

    Does anyone else have issues with shifting after being in overdrive for a while on the highway? I have been driving this thing for 6 years, 75k miles, this issue has been present the whole time. After an hour or so on the highway the shift out of the top two gears occasionally gets kinda...

    Slipping transmission

    I've got a new to me, 2013 Explorer Sport. A few days after I got the vehicle I felt the transmission slam into second gear on a really slow acceleration. Then I started noticing it intermittently on fast acceleration like going down an entrance ramp to the freeway. I believe I'm hitting the...

    Clutch Pilot Bearing: Is there a sleeve? Where to get one?

    Alright. I've got a 93 Explorer Sport 4x4. My clutch started slipping. It got pretty bad pretty quickly, despite having the clutch replaced at the end of last year. I have concluded that the rear main seal probably failed and leaked oil onto my clutch. Either that, or the flywheel failed. Either...

    93 Refuses to catch gear.

    Whenever you put it in gear and try revving it up to help it into gear, if it actually tries, the engine will bog down for a second and it'll just slip immediately out of gear. And it'll do this every time, no matter if you in reverse, drive, 2,1. Its the same reaction to every gear. I took a...

    Wrench light

    I have a 2007 Eddie Bauer, 4X4 w/ 5R55S transmission. About two weeks ago I changed the fluid and filter following the occasional illumination of the wrench light on the instrument cluster. No obvious problems but at 119,000 I figured it was due and thought changing the fluid could be...

    93 2wd auto transmission no longer goes into gear, but fluid doesn't smell burnt.

    It appears my transmission went out going up one of the biggest hills around where I live. And behind me was a huge trail of smoke. The entire way up my transmission kept slipping over and over again, but it'd get back into gear. It finally made it all the way up and over, and I just coasted...

    Xtreme Performance 4R55E

    Greetings, does anybody have experience with the SP Precision Xtreme Performance 4R55E? My '95 Ex 4x4 needs a new trans and this one is much cheaper than the Motorcraft. It says it is built to take more power then stock. I assume it would be fine on my stock '95? If anybody knows anything about...

    Blinking O/D OFF light. How to diagnose with no codes

    Hello, I just purchased a 2002 FORD Explorer XLT 4.0 V6 and I think with the 5R55W tranny. They said that this is the 3rd tranny. The OG was replaced, then the replacement was replaced. My question is that the O/D OFF light is blinking but there is no CEL. I hear there should be a code but...

    5R55S slow engagement after fluid and filter service

    The transmission had no problems before servicing. After servicing, it is slow to engage after coming to a stop or coasting down to a lower gear, there is a delay engaging. After stopping it needs to hit 1800 rpm to engage and does so harder than normal. You can bring the rpms up slowly to about...

    Hello, My 98 Explorer will not shift into gear, including reverse. If the engine is not running, I can easily shift into all gears. Once I'm in gear with the engine off, and then start the engine (I tried this with first gear and reverse on my driveway), I can go, yet it's as if once the...
