i have a 98 explorer sport 5r55e 150000 miles had tranny problems tried a rebuilt valve body from donny at cvb didn't fix it. got a used tranny with 70000 miles swapped tranny-- od light flashing swapped in the rebuilt valve body ( should have done that in the first place duh ) tranny fixed shifts like a dream. roughly 300 miles later no first gear even when shifted manualy. no flashing od light seems to shift fine other than that. i don't think its just an adjustment i'm pretty sure the linkage and indicator are aligned properly. any help would be greatly appreciated.
