Magnet

Did you happen to clean off the magnet about the drain plug? Just wondering how much "fuzz" there was. I just finished the job (THANK YOU SO MUCH btw) and was not sure if my accumulation was excessive for 200k or not. Thanks again

Mine was fuzzy, not sure how to say how much. But it took alot of wiping to get it clean.

Possibly.... and unfortunately that's the best I can give you. I don't know if your Expedition uses the 4R100 or a different transmission. If it's a 4R100 then it is VERY likely the same part. If not... it still could be. Best way to know is to get the part# from your local Ford dealership.

I found this thread because I've had some tranny issues and now the P0713 is the last code I need to sort out. I really don't want to drop the pan, drain, make mess, blah blah but if this turns out to be my fix, then I'll do it gladly. I won't smile though; tranny fluid tastes terrible.

Any chance you still have the Part#?

1. Purchase a new TFT sensor($14.49) and 8-10 Quarts of Mercron LV or SP ($4.49 per quart) at your local Ford Dealership.
2. Drain your old transmisson fluid.
3. Remove your Tranny pan by loosening 20x10MM that are around the edges.
4. Lower the pan and be careful with the gasket it is re-useable.
5. On the passengers side of the valve body in the front you should see the TFT sensor between 2 Solinoids. (See Photo)
6. Disconnect the 2 wire harness and with a pair of needle nose pliers rotate the TFT sensor clockwise with pulling down slightly. FYI Get out of the way or your going to drink some fluid.
7. Install the new sensor by inserting it in the same hole and rotateing counter clockwise. Reconnect 2 wire harness make sure its on the right side where the harness lock is.
8. Clean up the Tranny pan and re-install bolts. Torque bolts to 11Ft lbs.
9. Fill tranny up with Mercron LV or SP. Took me 9 Quarts which is what came out.
10. Check for leaks around the pan and enjoy not having your Trans guage spike.

I completed this project today, thanks for the step by step instructions. I did notice though that it is counter clockwise to remove and clockwise to install- at least in my 04 Torqueshift it is. The sensor would not come out when I rotated if clockwise. I thought the sensor might break off I was pulling so hard then I tried turning counter clockwise and it easily came out and less that a quarter turn. Thought the correction might help somebody.

While I agree the techs that come here to help us all out are awesome. I am not a fan of dealerships either. I would prefer to pay the techs directly if possible. Also the parts department is what gets to me. But I respect the techs here enough to keep my posts free of. Cheezit has been spot on every time.
The tec's are awesome for taking the time to post for us I have had a few of them work on my truck on the weekend, we all need/want extra $$$
