2000 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 117000 miles
I felt like my truck was running a bit sluggish and lagging on shifting. Went to a transmission shop, they told me that the truck had no Low Gears Manually upon driving and that from a stop, it skips over first and starts from second. Upon pulling the pan - the oil was reddish-brown with metal sediment at the bottom and more black colored sludge. I had the tranny flushed a year ago - and this problem started less than a week ago. The other mystery is that there is no code when the transmission was checked. The oil was changed - new filter put in, and the problem still continues. Has anyone heard of this? If so - is it possible for an AT vehicle to skip 1st. Is there a fix or are we talking going car shopping?
Any info will help. Thanks. Carlos
have the same problem?
