I was cruising on the highway at 45 and get on it nothing crazy just moderate throttle to pass some car and it just revved out. I coasted to the side of the road. Shut down and drove to the closest parking lot I could find. The trans will just rev and slightly move in DRIVE GEAR, REVERSE just revs, the only gears that move the truck are manual 2 and 1. trans fluid is red and does not smell burnt. The over drive light is flashing. I will post the video I made on my camera when I get in. Currently 50 miles from my place all highway with just second gear. Could it be a band? I can hear stuff spinning in DRIVE gear. I have a warranty but I would like to know ahead of time.

I gotta get it up there in the morning. as of right now
Drive does not work with overdrive on
Drive with over drive off does work cruising but not from a stop
Reverse is gone
So from a stop i shift 1, then 2 and push OD off then go into drive with OD off and its fine

You really need to cut your losses and get something else. Even a bicycle.

You are correct. There's just one thing stopping me. I LOVE MY TRUCK even though its a pain in the ***. Sure it's gonna go in the spring but I'll have a car till I'm out of school. I cant have a this truck in school. I do plan to get another ranger though after I'm out of school just 1 year from May 2012.
