Transmission Problems Help!!
First off it's a 2000 Ranger Sport, reg cab, 4 cylinder, automatic.
Today coming home from work the Ranger started having some issues. Accelerating from a stop light the revs shot up as well as the speedo, then the speedo dies, the truck shot forward, and the ABS light came on as well as the O/D light started flashing until i got the truck home. It was shifting hard the rest of the way home.
From what I have gathered, the speedo and O/D light are potentially related to the speed sensor.
My best guess for the ABS light is just an ABS sensor.
Here is the biggie though. After restarting I only have first gear when in "Drive". Will not go into second or any other gear. "Park", "Neutral", and "Reverse" are unaffected. When in "2", it is only second gear and no first gear. So it starts in second gear from a stop when in "2". Position "1" is unaffected.
