2000 Ford E-150

-2000 Ford E-150 4.6L V6 Automatic Transmission-
Complaint: Van is not shifting out of second gear, it currently only has 1st and 2nd.
I have error codes that i pulled using a scanner from wal mart. Codes are all engine related such as system to lean, lack of ho2s11, system over temp active and mis fire on cylinder 2.
Any suggegtions?

Re: 2000 Ford E-150

Sounds like limp mode to me. If the engine sounds rough, the computer will limit the transmission generally to first gear or a certain rpm. The transmission might be fine.

Chances are good that a tune up followed by a vacuum test (as mentioned above), will knowingly solve your problem. Vacuum leaks can sometimes be as frustrating to find as electrical problems - so be warned.
