I own a 98 concours with 216000 on her. Currently outta town and Im starting to have trans problems. I seems that when she shifts into 4 gear it doesnt wanna stay there sometimes, and actually it will go back and forth between 3rd and 4th. I'm very religious about the fluids on this car and changed the tranny fluid about every 40,000 miles. The fluid is still red and actually the shifts are fine until it starts trying to come outta 4th. Any ideas guys? Thanks!

well of course not ranger, that would be too easy LOL! I went ahead and shifted to 3rd and that worked for a bit but now it's also having problems staying in third also. Doesn't really sound like shift soloniods to me.

Yeah, I'm not much on transmissions, but I'd have to agree. Sounds like more than solenoids.
