1995 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles
My transmission will not shift out of first gear unless I let off of the gas. Shifting is not vacuum controlled, but the PCM module takes readings from devices that are affected by vacuum. The error codes say I have a problem with the EGR Valve and/or the temp gauge. I have replaced the EGR, DPFE sensor and EVR solenoid with no results. I don't show any vacuum leaks. It only odes it in first gear and has been this way for about a year. No slippage, no jerking, shift normal in second, third and forth.
Months ago a local shop said my trans was ready to blow. I don't think that is the problem. The Ford dealership doesn't work on medels over 10 years old.
