Re: 1997 Ford Explorer XLT
Describe the strange sound? When was the last transmission service (fluid and filter change) performed?
I know Ford used to be in love with their rev holder feature on their vehicles, whereas other manufacturers automatic transmissions would drop into what seemed like a neutral gear upon release of the accelerator, this didn't allow much engine braking of course but allowed the possibility of getting better mileage.
