2004 Crown Vic Trans Shifting

I have a 2004 Crown vic that has 140,000 miles on it. Recently has started taking longer to shift into 2nd gear. Also when going into overdrive feels like it has been put into neutral and just revs up. But it doesnt shift hard, or have any other problems! And it comes and goes!! I changed the filter and added the correct fluid. Still the same! I am beginning to think possibly a shift solinoid in the valve body is going bad or sticking? Any help would be appreciated!!

Go to O'reilys or Autozone and they'll pull codes for free. While there, get some MAF cleaner and clean the MAF.

There are no lights flashing. And it is definently the transmission. Not the Maf.

You don't have to have a light to have codes present. The engine operation controls the trans shifting. Many times cleaning the MAF corrects that.

Well I missed your last post somehow but looks like you don't need help on it. Good luck with 4x. Hope to see you back here again.
