1998 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles
MY car doesn't shift out of first till around 20 mph or 3000 rpm's. I had my CEL scanned and it said my 1-2 solenoid was malfunctioning. I had it fixed and the codes are gone but the problem is still there. I though maybe it was my trs or my tps, but I couldn't get the tps off to test it. Currently 70mph is about 4000 rpm's, I really need some help I have no clue what to even start checking, I can answer any questions needed I dont really know what to add.
I dont know if it mean anything but I was having problems where my car would feel like my car would slow while I was driving but only for a fraction of a second, but it would do it over and over again, when I would hold speed at 55 mph. Well I took it in to a shop and they said they fixed it. Now when I let my foot off of the accelerator in over drive my rpm's drop to idle ( around 800) very quickly. In drive the rpms drop much slower.
thank you in advance for any help im really lost.
-I should also add i'd be more than happy to donate more on a correct diagnosis.
