on the bottom of the transmission
The shift motor on my 1996 Ford Explorer is located at the end of the transmission, around 1/2 way back on the left side of the under carriage. May be in the same spot for 02 models.
Mounted on the steering column.
a bad radiator -automatic portion of radiator not cooling off transmission
I believe it is on the passenger side of the transmission ( A4LD ) behind a heat shield
my 2001 ford windstar wont shift out of first gear.
A bad transmission gear can cause your 1999 Nissan frontier to shift hard. Low transmission fluid can also cause the transmission to shift hard.
Possibly low fluid.
neutral safety switch is on transmission just below were shift cable connects to transmission
Transmission reProgramming required. The trans doesn't shift into 1st gear at the correct speed and causes a jerking of the vehicle when approaching a stop
A seized up transmission can cause a Volkswagen Golf with an automatic transmission to not shift and racing RMPs after second. A worn gear can also prevent shifting.
The most common cause for a transmission not to shift into certain gears is low transmission fluid. Another cause is a broken shifting fork in the transmission.
A Shift control soleniod for a exploer is in the transmission and controls the shift pressures for the trans. When bad you will feel a bang into gears. Very common problem on an exploer.
balls. balls will slow shafting
There are several causes that an automatic transmission will not want to shift into second gear. The two most common causes are transmission pump issues and trouble with the vacuum modulator.
The primary cause of a transmission to experience hard shifting is low fluid. Fluid is the life of a transmission and operates most of its functions.
The A4LD transmission is the most common failure on early explorers. It's very likely that your transmission is failing.
The shift solenoids are located in the valve body of the transmission. This is inside the transmission pan. You can identify the solenoids using the following diagram: http://autorepair.about.com/library/pictures/illustrations/bl051lib.htm
clutch plates could be welded to gather
It locks all the doors when you shift the transmission into gear and release the brake pedal
could it be low fluid
Transmission Control Solenoid
usually it is the overdrive solenoid, but can be the connector to it, input to the computer, or the computer.
Have the transmission checked for codes. That will tell you the possible causes.
