I have noticed a pronounced downshift in my 99 ford explorer from 3'rd to second over the last two monthhs . Is this a sign that the tranny is failing ? I am usually off the gas pedal when I feel a Hard downshift at around 35 mph

Try changing the trans fluid and filter. You'd be surprised what fresh fluid can "cure".

Thanks . I am planning to drop the pan later this month . I will probably use regular Mercon v Fluid . I am not sure what is in there now . I found a reciept for a atf fluid change from previous owner . It was done close to 40k ago .
