Ford Explorer and Rangers experience late shift

Ford Explorer, Ford Ranger Delay Late 3rd 4th Gear shifts

Customer brought us his 1998 Ford Explorer with the complaint that it took forever for the transmission to shift into 3rd gear. Upon inspection and test drive we found that third gear was missing. If you kept climbing in speed it would shift into 4th Gear and because it was a five speed automatic it would then shift into 5th gear.

We found that the servo was broken and not applying the bad correctly. After replacing the servo we again test drove and confirmed our fix. No it does not require a rebuild.
