2005 sport trac 4x4 xlt
New member but recently dedicated fan of the forum..

Ok problem appeared on freeway. Wont lie, i floored it to pass someone who wouldnt let me get over.. when i put the pedal down felt as if the truck went into neutral. I quickly found that warm or cold. I can start in either 1,2 on the tree. Then i can shift into drive as long as overdrive was turned off. Once up to 45 i can turn od back on. My reverse works sometimes. I have to shift from park to 2 to reverse at which point it sometimes engages. Drive if babied and im talking my grandmother can scoot along faster in her walker and beat this thing 100feet before it engages enough to go if started in drive.. so the million dollar question.. whats wrong with that tranny? Sounds like fords private joke of a game show lol

Ive noticed reverse becoming stronger in pasy few days.. I do my best not to drive it but sometimes im forced to due to lack of vehicles per adults because mine is down.. I will add i dont have the best of luck owning cars/trucks/suvs. I do all my own mechanical work and follow specs to a T.

Vehicle specs and repairs made below
