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 mikebnaz@gmail.com

Ford-o-matics and other from the fifties and early sixties starts out in 2nd. You'll have to put it in L and/or flat out the throttle to get it in to 1st gear.

The fuse for the solenoid that shifts the A4LD automatic transmission from 3rd gear to 4th gear (overdrive), in Aerostar vans is a fusable link within the cable bundle that is aside the battery next to the driver's side inner fender. If it has opened due to a short in the solenoid or the wires leading to it you may see visible signs of the disruption by a change in the plastic insulation covering the link.

its because of the dramatic gear change, first a second gear have bigger differences in size compared to the rest of the gears

User Avatar

a noisy second gear in your transmission is that your second gear might have broken gear tooth which is mostly the problem with my cars.either the second gear on the counter gear or the second gear itself.

Change the differential gear ratio and/or increase the horse power of the engine.

if you want to go fast, then you change gear at redline. if you are driving normally usually 2-3k

Depending on the yr. of the explorer, you may have an A4LD transmission. These were known for similar problems if you have not change your filter and fluid I would do that first, is makes no difference what yr. your vehicle is this is always wise to do and may fix your problem. There are other things that can cause this type of problem.

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.

you can change the c-gear by looking on the top of the screen it it says 'c-gear' tap it

User Avatar

dual clutch is essentially two gearboxes joined together. This means you every second gear is in the second gearbox allowing the each second gear to be clutched and ready to change as soon as the 1st gear has been clutched, this allows for really fast changes. i hope this makes sense.

Since a model T Ford is fast, if your grandpa gets out of gear like one it means he got out of the gear really fast.

the purpose of a quick change gear box (as the name suggests) is to allow you to change gear quickly.
