1993 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 103000 miles
My transmission downshifts from overdrive at highway speeds intermittently. It may not happen for days and suddenly it downshifts. Once it happens it will not upshift back into overdrive. Once the car is turned off and used the next day it will be fine until it happens again. It also seems to be slipping in first from a dead stop, usually when the overdrive problem occurs. Took it in for an evaluation at AAMCO. They looked at it tested it, drove it around for about 20 miles or so, dropped the pan and could not duplicate the problem. They changed the fluid ( with 10,000 miles on the old fluid) and told me they could not find a problem. They thought it might be computer related.
have the same problem?
