#489 of 613 1997 Ford F150 manual transmission issue
Oct 13, 2010 (2:19 am)
My 1997 ford F150 has a 5 speed and I can use 1st, 2nd and 5th gear but all of a sudden I cannot get to go into 3rd or 4th gear it is like they are not there.
Anyone ever heard of an issue like this. This happened driving along the hi-way. When I stopped I could not get into the 3rd or 4th gear. Never heard any noise B4 it happened.
Thanks for any help on htis.

Sounds like maybe the linkage in the shifter came lose, pull the top off and look inside there first. If it was a Syncro is would have been grinding before hand.

I'm wondering if something in the vavle body went bad? Is there any way to test this theory other than take it apart/

i have a 1992 F-350 auto trans 4x4 and the speedometer quit working after we took it off road, we were not doing anything crazy just going up little hills, this was the first time we had it off road since we owned it, as soon as we got back on the main road the speedometer droped down to zero and did not work after that, then noticed that it was shifting harder than normal, other forums state it could be the speed senor, any other suggestion would be really helpful, i dont have the money to take it to a shop or to jsut through part at it!!! PLEASE HELP!!!

The Speed sensor is at the top of the list and as I hate throwing money and parts at something if I dont know if will fix it for sure the Speed Sensor it pretty cheap. Just remember that taking it to shop to have them Diagnose it doesn't mean you have to have them fix it. If you call most Transmission shops or other shops most will at least talk to you over the phone, the smaller ones will anyways.

We found a trany guy that said he would lookat it. So he did a few checks and concluded it was in the vavle body like a seal, and recommended a rebuild so were having the whole thing rebuild for $950 and see what happens. We figure this best since it needs to last for a few more yaers and plus almost 200,000 miles.

Have the driveshaft looked at, could be a bad universal joint, or backlash in rear end !

O2 Sensors will cause it to stall, also, the Mass Air Flow Sensor will cause your auto to stall out !!!
