I posted this in the Stock Explorer forum but got no reply. Perhaps this is a better spot.

I have a 2000 Explorer XLS with the OHV V6 and 5 speed automatic transmission. (5r55e?) I'm gettin no compression braking with the selector in 1st gear. It works fine in 2nd and in Drive with the OD off, but not first. Seems to shift fine otherwise despite having 201k miles on it. Is this something simple I can fix without removing the tranny?

Well, if it is a sprag or band, you have to pull the transmission.
