I was thinking transmission but could it be engine related? Pull over and what to my surpise we had blow a spark plug. The shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign. The transmission was replaced with a Ford rebuilt transmission. If it is there clean it with electrical cleaner and add di-electric grease when you assemble it. I cut it off again and put it in drive and it would go. As the car is backing up on it's own idling it will slip in and out of Reverse. It's usually shifting between 2 and 3 and hasnt gotten any worse or better in 10,000 miles.
Sounded like hub splines were being stripped. Took the torque converter off to inspect input shaft splines and fluid level in torque converter. This helped the problem some but did not fix it. Update: I shifted to 2 and took off and it seemed to drive fine. I like doing the work myself, but I know when it comes to transmissions I would prefer to let a professional do anything much more than a filter and fluid change.
Transmission shifts hard into second and only after the rpms have gone very high. When determining the best-operating strategy for transmission operation, the powertrain control module uses input information from certain engine-related and driver-demand related sensors and switches. Other than the revving sound, there are no other unusual sounds coming from the truck at all. Mines been doing the same thing for a while now. Check the fluid level and condition, address as needed. Bodyshop said the gear box and all the gears are destroyed and because of it locking up to the right when I was making a left it looks like the power steering locked up also. The difficult part about diagnosing this problem is it happens under heavy acceleration, so unless they have a scan tool to monitor the transmission while driving, it will be a tough diagnosis.
I'll keep that in mind if I need to get some work done on the trans. We do a lot of the mechanics on our vehicles ourselves, but I don't know where to start. It will continue until I get off the accelerator, feathering the brake doest seem to effect it, so it's probably not the torque converter. The vehicle accelerated in the wrong gear. The powertrain control module then modifies shift schedule for 4x4L operation. Before you take your linkage down, block the wheels so the truck won't run you over and put the trans into neutral. In the freeway I-10 me and my son were trying to accelerate on and almost got hit by a semi truck the vehicle would not go fast enough.
Your sticker might not look exactly like this, but the format should generally be the same. Soft shifting, hard shifting, odd shift points, etc. Check out our step-by-step guide on how to diagnose and repair a. Using all of these inputs signals, the powertrain control module can determine when the time and conditions are right for a shift, or when to apply or release the torque converter clutch. It is a used vehicle that we purchased three months ago, so I know nothing about the history. Is your transmission shifting so hard it's giving you whiplash while it rows through the gears? The one mechanic came from Pittsburgh and said the Cottmans there was just as bad.
It is handy to have an extra Ford to drive while you work on the other. I try driving it home but didn't make it. Replaced seals on front drive axel and at drive shaft entry into differential due to small leaks developing. Another cause could be a defective line modulator valve, but this would most likely cause a problem in all the other gears, too. Step 3 — Test Transmission Pressure Testing your transmission pressure will help identify what component of your transmission is actually failing. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
Would it make any difference if I changed the trans filter? Then you can take the linkage off and set the new one in place. Fluid is leaking from the front of the transmission. It happened at night and i havent had a chance to check it out. The manual says manual 2 is actually only third gear intermediate band like in the older versions of this transmissions. Mostly only when i put the vehucle in gear right after dtarting it without giving it a few minutes to warm up. This may help the shift quality by flushing out any debris, it may not help, but I think it's worth a try for the low cost of the repair.
Prompt engine fluid checkups are highly possible with the use of an efficient oil analyzer, which enables mechanics to easily assess and determine whatever engine problems need fixing. I later drove around the neighborhood and it does seem to make a vibrating noise at times, and it also seems like it is shifting at times. I just got a new to me 99 f250 5. This article applies to the Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty. Don't take your chances, buy something else. Fluid is changed not filter but no improvements. This caused approx 9000 dollars in damage to the tires, wheels and suspension systems.
Ford will not comment on my situation and I want to know what to do to protect myself if this is a defect problem. If anyone in the St. Doing a search, it looks like Transman you have recommended a few Transgo shift kits for Fords, from what I have posted here do you think this could help? My father-in-law has a 1999 Ford Expedition 5. It drives fine until I go back down to 40, then it slips out of gear. Question: I've got an 83 Yamaha Maxim 750cc. If you do the fluid change and filter then add the Lubegard based on the fluid type you use per earlier post.
