Hey guys. Does anyone around the Muskogee area know how to rebuild a e4od?
I just got a 97 ford f350 7.3 psd dually.
The trans is acting up.
Some info from my other post -
It is slow to engage and some times acts like it is engaged but when you take off it reves a bit and then jerks and takes off. (Like it falls out of gear when stop and once you give it a lil throttle it grabs 1200rpm or so)
Once it Grabs it does not appear to slip -
It seems to do it most right after switching between Reverse and Drive then once you give it a little gas it will slip/reve for a sec then grab and go. It shifts verry softly.
Once or twice i was moving the truck around in the yard and it felt like it may have done this after being in drive for for a few feet - I was kinda fathering the throttle. It does seem to do it every now and again in drive from idle to a light tap or feathering of the throttle.
I drove it once with almost a ton of scrap metal in the bed. It did fine but on the way home empty it started getting softer and softer with its shifts and maybe a slight delay or later shifting. (Once I took of it never did the falling out of gear thing)
I was wondering could this caused by the pump going bad??? Could I just replace the pump?
Have you changed the fluid recently? Are you sure there is enough in it? It sounds like the pump pressures are low, and worn out fluid or too little fluid could contribute to that.
I have had this post up in multi area of the forums - Here is what happen
(Copy-ed from other post)
Before I start this update let me say thanks to everyone for there help and advice and time.
I may have kinda jumped the gun and made a rookie mistake.
I checked the trans fluid and guess what - It was low. I added 2 qts and jumped in and noticed a huge difference - It was a clean crisp instant engage to all the gears and It did not do the slipping thing - I backed out of the drive way and drove back in multi times - At least 7 times. This was with the truck cold as cold - It acted perfectly as it should... I checked it again and I was steal not showing on the stick. So Im guess I was so low the pump coulden pick anything up... NOOBISH MISTAKE. WASTE OF FORUM SPACE (Srry ADMINS) Sorry.
I swear I checked it the other day and it was full - But I have been so busy and everything that has went wrong -went FAR BEYOND WRONG. I HAD HOT WATER TANKS GO BAD(NOT THE KINDA BAD AS IN *NO HOT WATER*- The KINDA BAD THAT BLOWS HOT WATER EVERYWHERE OUT THE TOP!!!)
ALTS in my other ride go bad - I had a gasser e4od trans stolen - A original numbers matching 400/6.6 engine and trans for my 77 trans am got stolen (Doesn't mater now I had to sell it - My house got broken into and robbed - I raise my 1 1/2 year old boy on my own bc my wife is temp disabled and on bed rest. To top it off my oldest boy from my x may have cancer.
I work out of my yard on peoples cars and trucks so
I must have checked the trans fluid for something else and thought I had for the f350.
So I have been dealing with alote.... I must have mentally thought the trans was going bad and just getting myself prepared for it.
Last question can low fluid cause a O/D light to flash? Mine was flashing until I reset the computer and it never came back. -I think that is what threw me into panic mode (I had never seen one flash before)
Thanks for the support!
