It was automatic last night, but now i have to shift from first, to second, then into drive and overdrive. Ugh any one know why? It is cold outside i thought that might be a factor. Its 93' ford escort with honda rims and hemmi stickers lol.
Peace be thy journey

Ummm.... you should keep overdrive on anyways... helps with your gas mileage. Cold is probably a contributing factor as well. And no, its not a standard. Almost similar, but not so much.

If your transmission gets really cold it wont shift automaticly. I drove through some really deep snow with my Escape and it wouldn't shift for a bit. No biggie. My Jeep did that to me once also.

Yeah, take the honda rims off and put the stock ones back on. Problem solved.

If you try to correct me
I will become alot more wise and insightful than you can possibly imagine.

I'd rather have Honda rims than ford rims. Ford sucks. Bad.

Maybe if you want mechanical help the least important thing is the decoration.
No mechanic will get an idea from that.
About the car at least...
meh
#13
LMFAO. Well i feel a bit better knowing someones had this problem. I can drive it no prob, but it really effed with my head... I didnt know if i was trippin or what. But i hope the transmission isnt completely about to die.

I'll take a Honda any day over a Ford. Ford is junk. They have nice trucks I have to admit, but on any other Ford, the problem is circled and highlighted in blue, right on the front of the car.

Yeah, it's 'cause Ford sucks. Your car is slowly deteriorating, like Fords'll do.

I'm a Chevy man, obviously. My opinion in this thread is worthless.

This right here. On one particularly cold day my grand prix was having problems shifting because a) the temperature had dropped to 0' F when it was 20' the day before and b) i didn't give my car a chance to warm up, i just hopped in and drove.

Let your truck warm up and see if it tries to shift. If not, your transmission might need work.
