To repair a transmission that is stuck in gear on a 1989 Ford Escort 1.9L CFI, it will be necessary to drop the transmission out of the vehicle. It will probably have to be overhauled by replacing a belt or fixing the linkage, that is causing it to be stuck in gear.

My answer is no; because of the complexity of the tranny. Leave tranny repair to the experts.

The best thing to do is to take it to a repair shop that has a transmission flushing machine. That will change all of the fluid in the system.

It would be cheaper to repair or replace the automatic transmission. There are too many differences between a standard transmission and an automatic to economically swap in a standard.

The approximate cost to repair your automatic transmission would be $1,200 dollars.

Likely either a bad/failing motor mount, or a bad transmission mount. Is it a manual or automatic transmission? If it's automatic; the clutch that controls the reverse gear could be going bad. Have your mounts checked first. Simple, easy to replace, and the least expensive of the repair solutions vs. a bad transmission or clutch.

A shift solenoid is located inside the automatic transmission and you should probably leave that job up to a repair shop that specializes in transmissions.

On a 1991 Ford Explorer : The A4LD automatic transmission uses MERCON automatic transmission fluid according to my Haynes Ford Explorer repair manual * the type of fluid used should be engraved into the automatic transmission fluid level dipstick

There are times in every cars life when you weigh the value verses the cost of repair. A transmission repair is roughly $2000.00 to get you a $750 car. You may wish to reconsider this decision. Even a used transmission installed by yourself may not be cost effective.

how do you repair a circuit solenoid lock up on a Renault scenic automatic transmission

First check the speedometer cable going into the top of the transmission. If it is not broken the instrument cluster must be replaced.

The dipstick is a special tool that only the dealer and a transmission repair shop would have.

The automatic transmission is one area of the vehicle that very few people consider, because it is out of sight. Don

Pulling a transmission out of a 97 ford escort is a lengthy job. If I might suggest, get a repair manual with pictures from a parts dealer. They aren't expensive and will pay for themselves the very first time you use one.

By calling an auto glass professional. This is not a DIY repair. Most insurance companies will pay for this repair.
