i have a 94 explorer 4x4, with the same trans, you need to drop the pan and pull the valve body and filter out from the bottom of the trans. you will see a silver cylinder about the size of a silver dollar, this is the "shift siloniod) which regulates the hydrolic pressure for shifting from 2nd to 3ed gears, also controls engine brake lockup when gear selector is in drive (not over drive) change this selioniod and get a new filter and gasket, additionally you should pull the vaccume modulator out and test it with a hand vaccume pump should hold aprox 18khg. be sure to add correct fluid if your dipstick says to use mercon, then you should use "mercon v" fluid about 6qts. hope this helps you out. mike b tucson, AZ @ email
