I had what seems like the same problem with a 1994 Thunderbird with the 4R70W 4-speed auto transmission. I would be going down the interstate and it would feel like it goes into neutral and back into drive. I did some research on technical service bulletins and found the problem to be in the transmission range selecter switch (known to the dealer as the TR switch). I replaced the TR switch priced at approx. $48.00 from Ford and the problem went away. Just so you know, when you replace the TR switch, it needs to be adjusted which involves putting the trans in neutral and aligning the arrows. It's pretty simple. Also Ford recommends using Mercron V trans fluid in the newer electronic controlled transmissions. Hope this helps with your truck.
#2171 of 2180 1997 Ford Econoline V-6 conversion van, with fuel Problems?
Nov 11, 2006 (6:04 pm)
The vehicle has the following symtoms:
At idle speed parked or at the red light, vehicle bucks and shakes as if it wants to turn off, the vehicle has 145 K It does not burn any oil, once in motion the problem dissapears, or it is possible to get out of it by accelerating.
I changed the TPS, fuel filter (a little clogged), no change still the same. The engine light is on.
Any suggestions?, I do not think the fuel pump is bad.

A check engine light means that the computer will be holding a fault code. Before randomly changing any more components have the code read (free at Autozone), which will give you a starting point and direction to follow.

Been there done that.
The diagnosis at the autoparts did not help, I changed two O2 sensors which is what the computer sugessted, problem still the same.
The diagnostics computer will only detect what the vehicle has done but a lot of times not what caused it.

You said that a check light is still showing, which means that despite the new O2 sensors and TPS, a fault is still being detected. Why not get the current code(s) read and post them here? Oh, and post the codes rather than Autozone's interpretation of them.

Having exactly the same problems. Radio and/or wipers work only in park; battery drains but is re chargeable. Seems electrical - and it is sporadic. It also appears that wet weather makes it worse. Did you find the cause?
