Hydraulic controls are also different between the 6T40 and 6F35 meaning valve bodies and oil passages will not be the same. At first when I attempted to read the codes with a cheaper scanner it revealed no codes. One of the major differences between the 6F35 and 6T40 applications is computer location. Do you have a code reader? I went to the Xterra forum and did find a auto trannie complaint. The torque converter was out and the solenoid was bad.
Covers transmission assembly, dis-assembly, diagnosis, and troubleshooting. Note: There have been many engineering changes in this transmission since its introduction. If using a rebuilt converter, follow these suggestions to insure a bad turbine hub did not slip by. Yes, it sends input to a control unit, which in turn controls the solenoid and the shift pack inside the case. You are right about the gas mileage, 17 on the first tank, hope for improvement when it brakes in. Valve bodies between 6F35 Generation 1 and 2 are also different which indicates the two are not interchangeable. I have 12 years at Ford dealerships as a tech but we always had techs that did nothing but transmission work.
This moves the valve back to its original position and stops the flow of transmission fluid. Now I work at a independent shop. R emanufactured transmissions carry a longer, 3 year, nationwide warranty with additional upgrades while a rebuilt unit generally carries up to a 1 or 2 year warranty and upgrades vary from shop to shop. Bob Did you notice any difference in your gas milage after the new converter was installed?? Plus the Tribby has a few more features at the same price in addition to a warrant that lasts 14k miles more than the Escape. Ford, Mercury, and Mazda built millions of these cars. Had the transmission fluid changed and serviced 8 months ago.
Repair requires correcting the initial cause in addition to repairing the damage. We'll miss you here and on the other Escape forum. Go to the forums for your truck or car and learn from the owners. This transmission can be found in the 2005 Navigator, 2006 Explorer and Mountaineer, 2007 Expedition, 2008 F150 and 2010 Mustang. In addition in was available in the , the Tribute, and the Mystique. So I then tried 1, thinking it would rev high until I shifted into 2, but I quickly noticed that whether I was in D, 2 or 1, it made no difference to how the transmission shifted, when it shifted, and so on. Luckily, I still have the previous one.
It is important for the rebuild technician to pay close attention to parts differences between Generation 1 and 2. It also shifts from gear to gear millions of times. I fixed that for pretty cheap. If you know what to look for and how to spot them, the indicators will guide you to the cause. The computer bases the timing of the shifts on a number of inputs, including those from a speed sensor, temperature sensor, throttle position sensor, and a pre-written computer program. Thanks for all the helpful answers in the past. As a shop owner you are probably accustomed to changing the transmission filter when you change the transmission fluid.
If you get a low reading, this means the solenoid has developed a short. There is a reasonable amount of data on this transmission and previous issues. The wire diameter at the angle of your pick must be between. Now it is plush like butter. I have over the years, put half a million+ miles on F-150s at home and work and short of small tune up issues I have never had one brake down or leave me hangin.
Both are good options but the best option for you depends on the transmission problem, the year, make and model of vehicle, the mileage and the vehicle value. Need to isolate the exact fault first. Normally, the tight fit of the pin in it's bore seals the oil, allowing the transmission to use the servo's release as an accumulator and to aid the spring in the release of the band. And I will followup with a report as to the findings. When energized, the coil becomes magnetized and moves the plunger. I think the internals are fine.
This manual will show the disassembly and assembly of both the Generation 1 and 2 transmissions as well as component differences and transmission specifications. I bought a 1999 Mystique with a 2. It was designed exclusively for front wheel drive cars. I am going to miss the power to weight ratio of my Escape. Diagnosis requires finding the cause as well as the failure.
