Won't go over 30

93 6 cylinder 4.0

This truck has had zero problems! I went into the store yesturday, and came back out.. when I pulled onto the main road it would go over 30 MPH! I immediately thought trans.. so I changed the fluid, filter and gasket. Still nothing.. could I need a brand new trans? wouldnt I have felt it before? What else should I check?

I knew a guy that had a similar problem. He had best-buy install a stereo in his car, and after that it wouldn't shift out of first. Turns out the put the dash on crooked and when the gear selector said D, it was actually in 1st.

Yours sounds a bit more complicated, just thought that was a good story. Is it bogging down and not have enough power to go over 30mph, or is it not shifting?

weird because best buy put a stereo in mine, and I just took it out... hmmm

well it will just rev high and not gear up, so I can give it gas forever and it will stay at 30.

Something like this happened with my parents 96 windstar. Was driving and all of a sudden it was stuck in 3rd gear and wouldn't shift. I dont remember what they did to fix it, but it wasn't cheap.
