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

Check gage indicator

Ford Explorer 2005  227500 miles
It happened to me that after driving for five blocks, the check gage dashboard's light turned on, and as I checked the oil's pressure measurer, it was marking zero. Next I noticed that oil was certainly missing, so I recharged it to a normal rate. But as I started the engine again, the light was still on and the measurer still at a zero level. Any ideas?

I suggest using the scanner to identify whether it is the oil's pressure measurer that is not working or an oil pump's matter.

The problem was the new rotter part was bad the abs sensor light was not on, but the reinspection of the new rotters showed that's the ABS interior part was bent or a manufacture defective part. Replaced rotter and new seals. Auto drives fine now with no noise or bumping to a stop. They tried to charge me for a system check test. I called Corp they said no Charge. When you have a problem with retailer just call Corp . It takes a few days to a week to resolve any problem you may encounter with regional or national chain stores.

Trouble starting

Ford Explorer 1997 4L v6 sohc 76000 miles
When you put the key in ignition and turn to start the car will not start,you turn the key to off and remove the key all the dash lights stay on only way to turn them off is disconnect the battery. We can start the car with a wire from battery to starter relay but it will not switch off and carries on running even with key out so we have to pull the battery lead off or unplug the ignition switch. The ignition switch and ignition barrel have been replaced but this has not solved the problem. Any help will be appreciated

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!

Transmission

Ford Explorer 2005 xlt 197000 miles
Does not move in any gear. Stop engine put it in drive, engine will start in drive and engage in D 1 2 3. Stop and move the lever to reverse or park the vehicle will not engage in any gear. The battery was not connected on the vehicle for two months. I reconnected the battery drove for about ten miles when the problem started. What should I do?
