Transmission woes

I have a 2002 Explorer. At 124,000 miles the same thing happened to me. Two week later my transmission was toast. How many miles are on the car?

is the trans full of fluid? serviced lately or ever?


big pressure leak or worn out pump. rev the engine up to get fluid traveling fast enough the trans jumps into gear.

sometimes a quart of 10w-30 motor oil will help get the trans in gear easier.

The prognosis is not good for this trans. It may even be low on fluid, and that may have been your only problem.

But if it has been low on fluid for long enough, this transmission is probably hurt.

Tranny

My Explorer showed a code which the dealership reset and than tested the tranny solenoids. They said it was fine and to drive it. The code and the problem came back the next day. One week later, poof. Not a cheap fix either.

sensors / solenoids do not put the trans into gear.... it is hydraulic pressure. The shifter moves a valve that directs oil flow for initial engagement.

Now IF a sensor or solenoid is broken , blowing off fluid, e.g. = big leak , this would cause a "no" engagement at engine idle rpm.

If there is a short in a solenoid / sensor.... you have hard DTC pop up..... DTC being trouble codes
