Symptoms,

Trans in 1997 LX Duratec AX4N
Slip with OD, D & 1 gear.
2nd works full time.
No reverse

I have to have selector in (2) to move from a dead stop, but once car is moving at 10mph I can shift to (D) and trans will shift thru all gears and then I have to repeat all over again when I come to next stop.

Transmission "holds" down the car in 1st in a downhill but no traction at all if i step on gas.

I can hear slipping (similar to a squeeze) when selector in 1st, R or D.


Any good input gentlemen? Anyone got a car with similar symptoms?

Thanks
Zag

The problem all started with pump shaft o'ring wore out. Then a valve got stuck in VB. For that trans didnt't have enough pressure and blew friction plates of low/intermetiate clutch.

Solution
Complete rebuild of transmission. Special attention to VB and pump shaft o'rings.
