2001 Windstar Transmission Slip

I have a 2001 Windstar with 112,000 miles and the transmission is slipping in first gear. Reverse, 2 and 1 work well. When shifting from R to D the van will sometimes roll a little until the transmission engages. Once in D it will move forward in idle and with very little acceleration. However, once I accelerate normally the engine revs and I go nowhere. This might happen once or twice before engaging normally. If I start in 2 and then shift manually to D everything goes well until I stop. Trans fluid was full. Had fluid flushed a few days ago. Still no help. Went back to the shop and there are no codes. Any suggestions?

Re: 2001 Windstar Transmission Slip

Sounds like the clutch packs. Either they're stuck (which means you probably need a rebuild) or they're worn out (which means you DO need a rebuild). I had the tranny go in our Pontiac a few years back and was all set to rebuild it myself until AAMCO gave me a quote of less than what the parts would have cost me ($1400) with a year warranty if I brought it in myself. The one here was also willing to finance if I needed it.
