Bolt the pan in place and add 5 quarts on trans fluid and your ready. Something I really don't want to do just yet,this is my daily driver and that seems like a out of truck operation. If you remove an elastomeric gasket, clean, inspect and reuse unless gasket is damaged. The truck is a weekend vehicle so doesn't go far. The shifting didn't seem to change much between the different springs.
Anybody know what I could expect to pay for a system flush and refill? It is always best to try to find the information on the vehicle. As for as the Jeff's dipstick install, it is a one piece unit. It looks like this: There is also a magnet from Ford that works as a filter retainer. Any suggestions would be great. I highly recommend doing so with a over one that was simply rebuilt, or a used one. I did it and gee whiz.
The motor hasn't given me any issues. But trans fluid brands are just like oil brands. I have seen many invoices for 1500 to 2000 dollars. Saturday I hooked up to my landscape trailer and had a heavy mower on it. Take the bolts out on one side and catch all the oil you can. The torque converter lock up solenoid is controlled by your brake lights. Brake switch is actually several switches inside.
If you have to go to a trans shop, get a good reference. I use the mark on the stick, but not sure that it is the correct one as the hold down tab faces the wrong direction. If it's backwards compatible most new fluids are you should have no problem running the newest iteration of Mercon. Two more things I've noticed is 1 a 'whining' noise when the tranny is in gear. It started stalling only when shifted into reverse at first. I used the crosshatch last change assuming this stick came in the trans. Check for leaks and fluid level before you take it for a ride.
It's back to normal I suspected a software problem all along but wasn't sure. I know how and when this started. Now that a little more time has passed since the last Ford tranny discussion I was wondering if someone could give me an idea of what modules, sensors, etc. When the computer detects the tranny is slipping usually 300rpm above normal parameters it automatically applies full line pressure so as to clamp the clutches and bands as tight as they will go. By doing so will cook your transmission.
These models also have an overdrive cancel switch. I had to remove the filter to remove the valve body to change springs. Whether you drive on asphalt or trails, our E40D's superior shifting and handling is sure to impress any F-series pickup owner. To everyone that has a 90's or newer Ford with the E4od transmission. What I got was a 'pan drop' and new filter. If it has metal chips and other debris than its hammered. I have right at 7 quarts and its just now hitting the cold mark, the first of 2 holes, than the crosshatch.
In my last pic, you can see where I measured from Inside of finger pull in first pic, overall length is 38. We set out to build an E40D that was reliable, could withstand torque and most of all it had to be built at an industry low price. We finish each build by testing with the latest in Dynamometer technology. The truck starts and idles greatin park and neutral. Could a sensor be sending faulty information to the tranny, making it act like the truck is under a load. Disconnecting the battery resets the computer. By doing that it ends up destroying your transmission! The E40D pan measures approximately 20 inches in overall length, whereas the 4R70W transmission has a length of about 15 inches.
All of a sudden it has started shifting real hard. There are seperate contacts inside the brake switch. The computer became confused, adjusting the shifting force to compensate for a load and never recovered. Buy yours today and we will throw in a performance built lockup torque converter. Build it yourself and save! I measured tip to inside.
I personally will be swapping to tractor hydro fluid in my trans. For those that have either had a complete failure of the transmission or its simply time for an upgrade, we also offer complete transmission packages in various levels depending on the horsepower and use of the truck. Be careful not to cut or bend elastomeric gasket. Auto parts have a variety of stories from 6 to 16 quarts. Be sure to take advantage of this sale, deals like this won't last long. I can't go into the specifics as I am not that knowledgeable on the electrical breakdown of it.
My only recommendation on the side is that if the vehicle has over 75,000 miles on it, I would not recommend going with the synthetic man-made fluid. It depends on the year and transmission type 4 spd, 5spd, 6spd. Then drive and reverse and now even when I stop at a light. I pulled back into the main lane, hit the throttle and she broke the tires loose. They should re-torque as necessary. The E40D was Ford's first electronically controlled automatic in light trucks. I hope it fixes my damn issues what makes you feel your engine stall is not engine related,but transmission related instead? Motor has recent 6liter tune up as well.
