lol, that's about all there is on the internet when it comes to Ford Ranger/Explorer automatic transmissions. My library has a Chilton's transmission book that has a diagram of a 4R44E, but I haven't paid much attention to the case of the transmission to see what was on it. I only looked at the internal pictures.lol.

lol, I hear ya. Solenoids and Valve Body are the only two easy things. Everything else requires trans removal.

lol, I hear ya man. Hopefully it is. Keep in mind the scanner won't necessarily tell you which solenoid it is, you're gonna have to test them to find out which ones isn't opening, or get some expensive software that can monitor the trans and see what it ain't getting a signal for etc.

It very well could be. Or there could be some other problem causing you to lose O/D, like no torque converter lockup. Automatic transmissions are extremely complicated systems, probably the most complicated of all the systems in an automobile. You can think of them as your wife, there are alot of things that could be wrong, and without asking them, it's impossible to know what that is.

they were super busy yesterday and short handed. and today i drove it to work. so no codes yet. I noticed a couple outher things about the truck. if u leave OD off the light will not flash. also it start to once in a while buck. like it was dropping a gear for a split second and going back into a higher gear. also after the od light starts to flash. I had it do this 2 times outta the 4 times i tried. if u punch the gas it will act like its trying to kick down then it don't then it wants to and it does this until u let off the pedal. Wonder if posibly it is my tps? also how do i get the OD button off the shifter? i tryed unscrew the knob but could't get it by hand. didn't wanna scratch and gouge the shift up with pliars

I am gunna take it up to the shop early tomorow morn. But i have been thinking all this dinking around i have been doing i could have put the outher trans i have in it LOL.

Going back and forth through gears sounds like it's hunting for a gear. About when does this happen? If it happens around 45, it could be hunting for your non-existent overdrive. When you press the O/D off button, do the RPMs rise?

yeah rpms jump when u hit the Od button. Well turns out a buddy at work has a snap on scanner. i borrowed it tonight. only code it comes up with is 5th gr ratio wrong or something like that. and i did a drive test and the scanner skips over 2nd gear.. BUT i no dam well it is shifting into 2nd gear. the scanner shows 1st 3rd 4rth and 5th. WTF? lol I was going to change the box on the trans that the shifter shaft comes outta BUT i can't get the one off the spare tranny. I didn't wanna brake it.

----------

OH also if u put the shifter in 1st scanner shows 1st gear. put it in 2nd it says its in 3rd. thats y i thought i would change the shifter switch.

ok after the sife got home we went up town put some gas in the ranger and i did some more driving with the scanner hooked up. This is what it does.
the sanner says 1st trans is in 1st. tranny shifts into 2nd scanner says its in 3rd. tranny shifts into 3rd scanner says 4rth. tranny shifts into 4rth scanner says its still in forth. then get going above 45 the LUTC kicks in and scanner says its in 5th but trans is still in 4rth no shift was made by the tranns. drive awhile light starts flashing. scanner says its kicked back down into 4rth. and there was no shift made in the tranny. wtf is this thing doing???

Oooo, that's a code that can be caused by a few things. Broken bands, bad solenoids, or valve body issues. If your truck isn't going into 5th gear, then that's your problem, since overdrive is after 4th gear. Something is keeping the truck out of 5th gear. If the scanner isn't showing 2nd gear, then that could be a separate problem you're not showing up, or it could be related. Have you pulled the trans pan yet to look for any kind of debris that would indicate failed hard parts?

As far as the scanner not reading second gear, i'm not sure what would cause that. That should be throwing a code in itself since the computer isn't recognizing 2nd. You could be experiencing computer troubles too. Computers are not my bag of tea at all.
