You have an E4OD. Start with the basics pull codes!! (here
) do that first. Post back. I wonder if the shift solenoids are jacked up. You have a weird reverse so I don't think the filter fell out and into the pan. Pull codes and post back.
yo. I agree with CATSNW on just doing the DIY Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Testing first.
There are two types of Tests, Key On Engine Off (KOEO) & Key On Engine Running (KOER).
The Link provided goes to Ryan M's KOEO portion of the test; Ryan needs to include a Hot Link someday to the KOER portion which is @ http://www.fordfuelinjection.com/?p=94
The engine temperature must be greater than 50°F (10°C) to pass the KOEO Self-Test and greater than 180°F (82°C) to pass the KOER Self-Test.
Run it around to heat the engine up and try to shift thru all gears incl Reverse. Then turn off all accessories/lights, etc.
Make sure A/C is off and transmission is in Park (automatic)
Do Key On Engine Off (KOEO) portion first.
Look Codes up in my broncolinks.com site using the new Search function if in a hurry.
And Post em here according to:
Is the Transmission Control Indicator Light (TCIL) (overdrive off/on Button and LED on end of shifter stalk Blinking?
Is Check Engine Light (CEL) ON all the time?
It should light up briefly when first starting the Bronco.
