97 Ford Expedition won't shift into third then I hit nutral and can't shift at all for two or three minutes

Asked by Mar 22, 2017 at 02:45 AM about the 1997 Ford Expedition 4 Dr Eddie Bauer 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Check for any transmission codes, this really sounds like it could be a TCM or the shift solenoids are breaking down or sticking. Has the tranny been serviced regularly? If not then it is likely that varnish has fouled up the solenoids.
