1991 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 50257 miles
This transmission has a hard & delayed upshift that slips in from first to second gear and then shifts normally up and down from there. I serviced the transmission because the fluid had a slight brown color; the fluid level was good and the existing filter was also good. There was some mush on the pan magnet but no metal to speak of and none in the bottom of the pan. After I serviced it I drove it but had the same problem. I vacuum tested the modulator and it held vacuum but pumped up slow so I replaced it and drove it again; I got the basically the same experience as before. I noticed the replacement modulator had an adjustment inside it but no instructions in the box; can you give me some insight on adjusting the modulator and also on any band adjustments this might have?
have the same problem?
