Some how I thought that only cars/mini-vans/etc got the AOD and
trucks/etc get the E4OD, is this not true then?


%%%%%%%%%
Ralph, my owners manual even has a section for the AOD in it. I don't
know if this was an option or the base trans., since I bought used.
My build date was 10/92, maybe they started installing E4ODs later in
the production cycle.

To everyone else, thanks for the UPLIFTING info, I dont know why the
trans was replaced at approx 60K miles. BUT, not a problem, I know for a
fact that it was a rebuilt trans that was installed, since I went to the
trans shop and asked. I would guess I can expect another 60K miles from
this one.

Sorry for the long post,

Hello list...

Any body out there using synthetic oils and/or synth trans fluids, what
brands??

I have Michelin LTX M/S, LT235/75X15 with 45PSI, does this sound right.
The door jam sticker says P235/75X15 at 35PSI.

Any ideas on DECENT quality after market shocks. Edelbrock are too
expensive, Ranchos, KYB, any body else's product.

TIA,

Been down that road. The best thing to do is ask an auto glass shop to
remove and replace the windshield trim for you. A local shop did mine
without charge. Removal is not too bad because primer and top coat will
cover up the scratches. Replacing trim yourself could be disastrous. A
glass shop has the tools and experience.

I am currently preparing a 1980 for Ranger Extended Cab for painting.
The cab top and hood have a lot of surface rust. Does anyone know how to
remove the trim from around the windshield. I would like to save the
trim if possible. Is the trim held on with clips or what? Any and all
help and suggestions would be appreciated.

Dropping to a tire at least 4" smaller in diameter with 3.55 gears will yield
an effective ration of 4.07

Hello folks,
I have written a small program in Visual Basic 5.0 that will calculate
gear ratios based on tire sizes, rpm, speed etc...
If you know three of the above four variables, it will give you the other.
It also does metric to American tire size conversions and can also help with
changing speedometer drive gears after changing gear ratio.
I'm not finished with it but if anyone would like to try it out, let me know
via email and I'll make provisions to get it to you.

Eh, my build date (92 F-150 supercab), is almost a year yearlier then
that, and it came with a E4OD. Don't remember if the AOD was available
since I wanted a tow vehicle

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Re: PSD Mileage

Chris,

All this talk about changing tire sizes or rear end ratios lacks practicality.

Your economy depends on one factor if nothing is wrong with your engine. How
much work is the engine doing! Work can be measured by load, speed, grade,
rolling resistance (tire pressure), wind resistance, etc. On my turbocharged,
non-PSD 7.3 diesel SC with E4OD and 4.10 rear I routinely get an honest 18 mpg
at 65-70 on the Interstate with one pax. Around town it delivers maybe 15-18
and on the Interstate towing my 5th wheel trailer at 65 it delivers about 10
mpg. Your heavier CC may not do as well, but should be pretty close.

The first thing you should consider is going to your dealer (or, maybe better,
to a Navistar dealer) and demanding a solution to your problem. Next, and
please don't blow this off, examine your driving habits. Do you like to zoom
off the line when the light changes? I do, but it burns fuel. What tire
pressure are you maintaining? Try 65 psi F/R for awhile. How about your boat
trailer? Are the trailer tires inflated to the max sidewall pressure? Have
you checked the brakes lately...the wheel bearings? Is there any chance your
truck's rear brakes are adjusted a little tight? How is the parking brake
adjustment? If you have E4OD are you using the overdrive (assume you are
based on your RPM at 65 mph) when you tow? You should. Did you put a bug
deflector on the hood? A common problem with deflectors is that they can
starve the intake air causing smoke, low power, and extra fuel consumption.

Anyway, this is not all inclusive, but a few small things can add up over time
to steal your hard earned $. Good luck with this problem and please keep us
informed when you get the solution.

Thanks, Butch Davis-

Subject: FTE 80-96 - AOD's

My son bought an 88 F150 4x with an AOD with 120k on it 18 months ago. It
now has 155k. (He drives a lot!). It was shifting erratically, and we did
two things. 1) leave it in drive around town, only using OD on the road. 2)
Completely changed the fluid and filter. It had the normal clutch powder
residue collected in the pan, and filter, but no chunks. Changed the fluid
and then felt it become a lot better shifting trans. When I say changed
completely, I mean I disconnected the cooler tubing and pumped out all the
old stuff, and drained the two trans and radiator coolers. Also installed a
drain plug on the bottom of the trans pan to make future fluid changes
easier. If I remember, ATF is alcohol based(?). Although it is not exposed
to combustion products like the engine is, trans fluid sees a lot of heat
and pressure, and IMHO needs to be changed a lot more often than
recommended, esp if your goal is to have the trans last well over 100k.

The E40D was an option on '92 F-150's. In my case it was part of a special
option with the 300CID Inline 6 and didn't cost anything...at least so far.
The transmission has already scared me once by pumping all the fluid out
the front. Seems OK now...but for how long?

Jorge,
There is a couple of variables you have to work with. First the
label on your truck tells you what the PSI should. BUT you also
have to look on the tires as to what the max rating is according to
that brand tire. You do not want to exceed the max rating on the tire.
As a matter of fact it is better to stay under the max rating. What I
do is split the difference. In your case, if the door jam says 35 psi
and the max tire rating(on the tire) says 45 psi, then I would put
in 40 psi.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Introduction

Fellow Ford Truck Owners:

This is my first message to this list. So an introduction is in order. I
was sold on Fords by my Dad who
used them to earn a living. He hauled bulk sacks of U.S. Mail to small
rural post offices here in North
Dakota. He began driving Ford F 100's and F 150's starting in 1970, and
bought a new Ford every year
up until 1994, when he had to quit due to illness. What he needed was a
truck that was dependable
and fuel efficient. He had 302 V8's up until 1980. Then he switched to the
300 six in 1980. He fell in
love with the 1980 Ford, he said that he was getting 20 miles per gallon.

In 1984 I bought a new Ford F 150 2wd with the three speed and overdrive
manual transmission. I am
a plumber and that Ford and I have done a lot of work together. The only
problem I have ever had so
far is an ignition module, and a voltage regulator. Also I had to take the
carburetor off and tighten the
screws on the bottom side of it. I have 90 thousand miles on my Ford and
hope to get many more
years of use out of it. The body is very rusty and looks like it's been to
war, but it runs so quiet and
smooth !

I enjoy reading the messages you guys send and I will give some advice if
I feel I have the answer to
a question.

Have a good weekend you guys !

Using this formula with David's 235/85R16 tires which he most likely has on
his PSD, his tire diameter calculates to 31.7 inches. He would need a tire
diameter of 36.6 inches to achieve an effective 3.55:1 ratio. He could do
this but it would mean new wheels since the only tires in this big fit
either 15" or 16.5" wheels. Add a lift kit and the new tires (at least
$170.00 each in this size) and it would be cheaper to just have a gear shop
install the taller gearing.

After having the in-tank fuel pump go out on the front tank of my '92

the same time. Now, a few tanks of gas later, the fuel gauge always reads
just under full no matter how much gas is in that tank. This is only when I
am running on that tank. When running on the rear tank, the fuel gauge runs
fine. Any electrical experts out there care to venture a guess as to where
I should start looking for the solution to this problem?

It sounds like a stuck float on the sending unit in your front gas
tank. It's possible that something might have gotten jammed or bent
during installation (not to take anything away from your skills ;-),
or the float may have completely come off the end of the lever inside
there.

I'm pretty sure that if it were a broken wire external to the sending
unit the gauge would read "Empty" instead of just below "Full". I'm
not positive on this one though.

I'd check the sending unit, but that's just my opinion. :)

AOD/AODE transmissions ended up in trucks--I have an AODE in my '95. All of
the ones I've heard of are on 5.0L/302CID engines, but I'm not sure if this
is true.

I have a hunch that this combo makes its way into trucks because of the
Mustang/Cougar/T-bird, which all had the 5.0L/AODE combination as well. The
F-series brings a lot of production volume for this powertrain which helps
bring down cost. This is only a hunch though.

The E4OD is a stronger unit. Anyone know if AODE-equipped vehicles can get
a direct swap to the E4OD (kind of "plug-n-play"). Same harness connector,
EEC shift strategy?

The easiest way would proably be to cross the wires. Put the sending wire
from the working tank on to the bad tank and see if the gauge reads. If the
gauge reads okay then the other wire is bad , if it still does not read
correct then it is most likely the sending unit. You may have to lengthen
the wires with aligator clips , watch for sparks !

Subject: Re: FTE 80-96 - Fuel gauge sticking

I'll VENTURE an opinion or two,
If I remember right Ford has the units set up to send MORE ohms to
the gauge when the tank is EMPTY and LESS when it is full. I'd double
check your connections first, you may have a bad connection w/a lot of
resistance for the signal. It could be a bad unit of course, too. We
know it's not your gauge and since you replaced the sending unit the
problem obviously lies there. You could use an ohms meter and probe
into the wires (good luck getting access) to see how much it is
sending. The other possibility (if I'm right on the ohms thing of
course) could be that the float is NOT working at all, hence sending
LESS ohmage to the gauge. Since it sounds like you replaced the
sending unit as a preventive measure (you thought anyway), you might
put the old one back on just to see what it reads (provided you didn't
throw it out of course). Let us know what happens.
Later,
Randy (Brew)

I am not 100% sure, but I think that to save a wire, the float is a tied to
chassis ground on one side and to the gauge on the other. If that wire were
shorted out it may show a full tank all the time. I am pretty sure that a broken
wire would show an empty tank. The only other things I can think of are a stuck
or faulty float.
Good luck,
Paul
