April 19, 2005i was wondering if anyone could help. i have a 04 Mazda B4000 4x4 with an automatic tranny. only when i shift into drive it delays a couple ofseconds to shift. the other day it didnt even go into drive until a couple hours later when it cooled down. ive changed the fluid and the filter and it still does it. any advice?

April 23, 2005well good luck in getting an answer if u ask a non ford question, i asked bout my gf chrysler and no reply , but maybe i can help , did u check for any loose hoses and if its an 04 maybe u might be under warranty or maybe might be transfer case ,just my 2cents ,hope this helps
April 23, 2005i have no idea as i know little about trannies.
sean where is the post on the chrysler ?
April 23, 2005Last time I looked the small Mazda truck is just a reboxed Ranger, so no need to be smart. This goes back to even into the 80s.
If I knew more about the trans in there, I'd help... but I don't. Sorry.
April 23, 2005Sean that was uncool....Mazda is owned by Ford....
Beastie, take it in and have the tranny adjusted...probably just something small.
April 23, 2005well ill probably just take it in and see what it could be. thanks for the help.
April 23, 2005did u have the additive put in? there was a recall about ford using the wrong ATF and they needed to put in an additive. symptoms of what u described are the problems of it.
April 24, 2005Does the problem occur when you shift into D from P or does it also apply from D into any gear, like R, or L (or 2 or however it's marked)?
April 24, 2005dont mean to be uncool, but i shouldve guessed sometimes it takes a while to get answers ,and ive owned a mazda which ran forever and a volvo , so u see im a ford man
April 25, 2005You should have the 5R55E 5 speed automatic with "smart shift" technology. Essentially, these trannies had problems with the fluid being recalled, so I would say check that out. Also, the programming is poor on them. They often don't know what gear to be in and are constantly shifting.
