Reverse works, but no drive unless I rev the engine.

Asked by Jul 29, 2017 at 07:37 PM about the 2004 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The truck will go in reverse fine, but at every stop
the transmission acts like it's in neutral. I have to
rev the engine to get it to go into gear, it slams into
first. (2500-3000 rpms) And it goes through all the
rest of the gears fine. Until i stop at a light,
intersection etc.  then the process restarts. Put new
filter and fluid and still same issue. a couple of
times it stalled when trying to engage into 1st from
a stop.

Low ATF level is my guess.
