Question Transmission Problem?

The other day I pulled away from a light and after a half a block the engine was revving but the car was slowing down. It felt like the transmission was slipping. I downshifted into second and the car began to pull again. I shifted back up to drive and it seemed like the transmission was slipping. I stopped and pulled away and again and I felt it shift into second and it appeared to shift into drive and then the slipping began.

Any idea what is happening or damaged?

Thanks.

Re: Transmission Problem?

Yes, that's a trans problem. How many miles on it? How many on the fluid/filter? Take it to a shop you trust.

Re: Transmission Problem?

Thanks for replying.

I should have mentioned it has 70,000 miles, I bought the car at 50,000 miles and I do not know if the trans. filter and oil were ever serviced. I was hoping it was something simple.

Do you know if these transmissions are susceptable to problems at this stage?

Thanks again.

Re: Transmission Problem?

I worked for a county that had plenty of Crown Vics with the same transmission. It was a rare occasion to have one go out. I have an ex sherrif car with 154000miles and stil the same trns. Of course it was serviced regularly.

Re: Transmission Problem?

Have you checked the fluid level? I'd drop the pan, install a new MotorCraft filter (the gasket is reusable), an inline filter (see the TSB below), and an aftermarket drain plug kit. Then put in some decent aftermarket Dex/Merc, drive 100-300 miles, and take it to a shop that uses BG products for a flush. Finally, refill with real MotorCraft MerconV.

If that doesn't do it, you more that likely need a transmission.

Sounds as tho your car and my car might be related....I have the same trouble and I have looked far and wide for a solution, I was told that the best thing to do is change the transmission range sensor, determines what gear its in and then sends to the computer. I changed mine yesterday, but it wont go now at all except in high rev and then its just enough to make the car roll. I have seen other sites on theis topic and I have been told that when you change the sensor then you should have the codes cleared from a scanner...I will try this Tomorrow when my mechanic is in the shop and hopefully this is all that could be wrong. Good luck and let me know if you find a solution and I will keep you updated on my progress

Re: Transmission Problem?

To cear the codes all you have to do is unhook the battery cable for 30 min.

Re: Transmission Problem?

Thanks rtg143 I went out about 10 min ago and pulled the cables from the battery to see if that will clear the codes and solve my problem. I have seen same problems on this site as mine and when they changed the TRS they said they have drive 3000 miles with no trouble so I am hoping that this fixes it....but what they didn't say is when they replaced the Trs that they had to clear the codes...and they never mentioned that after replacing the trs that the car wouldn't move at all.........so I am hoping that there isnt anything more serious.
Keep your fingers crossed and I will inform you what happened onc I have tried to clear the codes
