Trans Question
#1307985 - 08/28/06 08:01 PM

friend of mine has an intermittent transmission problem on his 2000 Ford Contour, 2.5L Duratec, auto. From what i understand, it's nearly identical to the SVT Contour and he at one point had a supercharger on it from an SVT Contour. He's having problems with the tranny shifting/popping out of gear in 3rd/4th. Fluid is good, parts places say it doesn't have a serviceable filter. Before i really get into this i want to know if anyone has any insight into the cars, i'm just the one willing to do the work. I'm checking over at now too for some answers, but i was just wondering if anyone had a clue on this deal, i'm thinking the tranny's boned. But i don't want to pull the pan if all i'm gonna be doin' is finding metal. No metal on the dipstick, fluid doesn't appear to be dark/burned. Thanks --Billy

There's no pan to drop anyway. Nor is the filter a service item except on rebuild.

See if you can get a better description of what's wrong.

SVT-related sites aren't going to be of much help since they all have sticks and this is an auto.

Also, there is a TRANSAAXLE forum specifically for this sub-system. Look there for previous posts. Lots of info on the CD4E.

Perhaps a mod will move this since it really belongs there.

thanks, i just posted here as it was a troubleshooting forum, but anyhow, i stated that it was an auto, and if there's no pan to drop, then that solves that question.
