90 Ford Bronco II: You have to put it in whichever gear you want it in before you start it or it wont shift at all. Then once you are going its extremely hard to shift into the other gears. Reverse is the only gear that sounds like its grinding.

SOURCE: my 2002 ford explorer transmission shifts hard

Check engine light on? Sounds like a bad pressure control solenoid. If it is a bad PCS. You have to replace the solenoid block in the 5R55W transmission.

SOURCE: manual transmission is hard to shift into gears,

It sounds like your clutch may not be releasing full. Does it shift easily if you match the speed of the engine and transmission shaft closely? Does the clutch feel normal?

SOURCE: ford transmission 86 4wd will not shift to high gear

It is hard to say from your description what the problem is ... could be linkage issue ... could be trans is going as is with the other poster ...
Losing overdrive. Clutches (bands/clutches) have had it. Be careful driving without that top gear ... doing too high a speed without the appropriate gear causes extra stress on your engine that could accelerate further problems. Try to do only driving at a low enough speed that the top gear is not missed ... will help the vehical last as long as possible.

I need a free manual , to rebuild a automatic transmission in a 1990 ford Bronco w/351 engine. and how to remove and and rebuild. doing this myself. Any step by step manuals for this beginner?


Rebuilding automatic transmissions properly requires a lot of time, skill, training and experience to get it right. A beginner will have little success in making a lasting repair. I have known of experienced professionals fail to fix them properly. An exchange transmission would be the best option, although more expensive, as you should get a warranty and will be out of action for only a short time.

As easy as it sounds, if you haven't done it already, just check your transmission fluid level. A low level will cause hard shifts, and sometimes some slippage in the transmission. The difference in the 2 trips could be just how hot the transmission fluid gets during the type of driving you do.

I have an 1988 ford bronco 2 automatic V6 i pulled


There are shift solenoids in the transmission and apparently there's a problem them. I would get it to a trany shop and have it checked right away. If you continue to drive it you will ruin the transmission. Are sure you put the right computer in the vehicle? If you put a computer from a Bronco II with a manual trans in a vehicle with an automatic trans, the trans won't work right.

Transmission fluid leaking back, 1988 Ford Bronco


your output seal on the tranny or input seal on your transfer case is bad. you have to pull your transfer case to tell. this is a pretty straight forward job. block wheels. put transfer case in neutral. drop front and rear drive lines.diconnect transfer case shift linkage. there is a short commponent connecting the trans to the transfer case. the bolt on either end face each other. remove the bolts to the transmission. the transfer case is heavier than it looks, i suggest getting help. pull back on the transfer case until it will drop down. it will pull out a bit because of the trans output shaft. replace what will probibly turn out to be the tranny output shaft seal and reassemble in reverse order.
