I have a EF Xr6 auto and it has currently started to play up.
It will be fine when it's cold but as soon as it warms up it loses low gear and the overdrive and it wont manualy select either.
Just wondering if you guys think its f**ked or do you think it is something stupid?

What do you mean, what do you mean it loses low gear and overdrive?

RedX;
Im not too sure, but getting a trans service may help. New filter and oil, would make all the difference?

Thanks for advice guys. I was talking to a guy and he says it can be anything from a solenoid to a TPS.
I got a recon box waiting and if it continues playing up, well i'll go from there.
