What is wrong with my Trans? HELP!!!
2000 XLT 4X4 Auto 3.0 Ranger
When truck is cold trans works flawlessly.
When truck is warm it occasionally will not engage into Drive when moving from Park or Neutral to Drive. Sometimes you have to try it a couple of times or even rev the motor a bit when in Drive to get it to engage. Once it does engage the trans works flawlessly again, no slips, perfect shifts etc...
Because the problem is sporatic, the local mechanic tried to flush it with the BG machine... but it did not help. (Note that he did NOT change the trans filter)
Also... when the trans will not engage into Drive, you can drop it to 1 and it will engage, then slip it back to Drive and everything is fine again.
Is this trans shot? Can I fix it without replacing/rebuilding the whole thing?
