Default A4LD help

1993 explorer Limited

fluid full nice and red and no codes and no check engine lamp

From a stand still in 1st or reverse it will slip then engage gear and move....once moving the truck runs and shifts beautiful 1-2 2-3 3-4 are all nice and smooth. Only while at a stand still trying to get it going does it have problems.

I have my other trans ready to go in at work tomorrow but just throwing it out there if their might be an easier fix or stupid item causing this symptom.

did you replace it and it work normal again? I know those will leak fluid into the line and suck it into the intake.

my wifes explorer did this spring and it ended up being a thermostat that was stuck closed. Don't ask me how a thermostat affects the trans but it had similar issues to what you described, and all I did was replace the t-stat and it has been perfect ever since.

I know this isnt likely to be your problem John but I had a similar problem with my aod in the bronco, it turned out that the little gasket for the filter was missing allowing it to suck air then i d goose the gas and it would grab and go, what i get for letting someone else work on my truck i guess
