Default 02 Ranger ATF change Fixes ALL problems I had!

Thank You Ladies and Men! After a Month of Severe Rebuild Trans Anxiety,A simple Trans drain and filter w/gasket,removed my "O/D light off flashing",and the Firm shift between 1st&2nd! It seemed like it was shifting from 1st to 3rd or 4th? But this 3 Quart Drain ad filter,and 100 mile drive test,yesterday resolved ALL my issues,per my many previous posts! Yessiree Bob!That's it for me,at least.Keep in mind I had no apparent slippage,just that 1st 2nd gear "Firm" shift and O/D light flash" Tried everything from cleaning Battery posts,etc. But directly after the Fluid drain ,I drove only 20 miles,which didn't appear to be Far enough? That 100 mile drive thru these here SoCal Foothills Did the Test proper,plus a short Freeway stint! "VOILA" No More Trans Issue,Just now anyway! Thank You All!Keep Yer Fluid Clean! I missed at least TWO changes between 30000 and 105000,but was able yto remedy it.No $100 Code scan ,DIY too! I'm gonna do it again soon ,to get the rest! Some talk of fear of changing fluid after 70000 miles,didn't apply here! Keep Yer Five Speed Automatic Fluid Clean,Yes 3 Quarts! And recheck ,etc. Thank You Folks 10-4 The "GreenRanger Rides Again"!
