I can shifted on reverse, neutral, drive, etc.. . Without a problem, however, since then the check engine light when on and the scanner show the code P0761( shift solenoid C Performance/ Stuck off) can somebody help me with this. The car runs perfect, no problems at all. Thank you

Shifting problem

Ford Explorer 2003 4.0L,2wd,automatic 145000 miles
Just installed a used transmission and when I take off it won't shift out of first gear unless you let completely off the accelerator and the check engine light came on and the overdrive off light flashes continuously until you turn ignition off what is the problem?

Your first mistake was a used trasmission. Todays trans missions are like everything else. Planned obsolencece. Just like your tires, brakes, belts, hose's', ect... i've been building these things over 40 years and they are made to fail. Junk yard transmission are the worst

Won't start and some acceleration problems

Ford Explorer 2011 Suv, automatic, 4 wheel drive 690000 miles
So this is the second winter in a row that I verify had to replace my battery multiple times. It's only been a week but again today my car wouldn't start. Also once my car is jumped and running game I'm having problems accelerating. If I need to accelerate quickly my check engine light will come and the car almost stalls. Then sometimes while in drive (usually I notice this when on the highway) sometimes my car will de-accelerate for a couple of seconds and I can hear a high pitched noise. I have no idea what this could be and when my car was just in to have the battery replaced my internal computer showed no other issies. I own a 2011 Ford Explorer with about 70,000 miles on it. I am the second owner and I love in Pennsylvania so our winters can be pretty cold!
