It no longer shifts into OD. Everything checks out okay like fluid level and other shift positions work fine. Could it be the filter? Gotta keep SWMBO happy..

The actual shifter on the column won't go into OD? The shift pattern on the explorer is like P-R-N-OD-D-L isn't it? Will it shift PAST OD?

It could be the selector itself, or one of the hoses could be "backed out."

The column shifter will go into any of the positions but with the selector in the O position the tranny doesn't shift out of 'D' or third any longer which is okay around town but high rpm's for highway drives. Everything else works normally.

Better get it checked out NOW! I had a 4.0 Ranger w/ that worthless POS transmission in it and I busted the OD planetary gear TWICE. It took a stout build by an excellent tranny builder to get that worthless piece of garbage to live... Can you tell I really didn't like those transmissions? /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

Yeah, take your Explorer TOMORROW MORNING to the nearest Aamco or local transmission shop... That is a big problem... And it will only get worse.

we have numerous explorers here at work, and about half of them have had a tranny rebuild. Pony up $1900.00 and deal with it. New fords SUCK.
