TorqShift Transmission - Information and Troubleshooting

I hope to make this a thread that contains an extensive amount of information on the TorShift transmission. I am sure it will be several posts. All other information is welcome.

I will begin w/ the Broadcast messages and the TSB's:

This is now covered by Customer Satisfaction Program 03B06. It applies to trucks build through 2-23-03. The program will be in affect until 12-31-05. Ford is authorizing a free oil and filter change under this program until 12-31-03.
Some trucks may exhibit a rough surging idle in drive or reverse when cold , poor throttle response when cold, or low power after extended idling cold. Other symptoms may include harsh shift engagements, harsh 2-3 upshift, 5-3 downshifts and cold 3-5 shift flair. There is a revised calibration for the PCM, FICM and TCM--all must be reprogrammed as a set using WDS version 24.6 or higher.

Harsh or Delayed Forward or Reverse Engagement:
This could be caused by a sticking line pressure control (PC-A) solenoid. Typically the line pressure will be fluctuating wildly (up to 500 PSI!). To service, first remove and inspect the external cooler line filter. If it contains fine gray metallic debris. If metal is found, the source is most likely a defective reverse planetary pinion shaft that is coming out of the carrier and contacting the case or adjacent components. The transmission will need to be disassembled and repaired as needed or replaced. Broadcast Message 3250
If little or no debris is found replace the line pressure control solenoid with P/N 4C3Z-7G383-AA. Broadcast Message 1586/SSM 17874/18051
This repair will require removing the solenoid harness, so a new harness sealing o-ring (P/N 3C3Z-7Z276-AA) will need to be installed. In some cases the solenoid body will need to be removed from the trans to remove the harness and solenoid. In this case the solenoid body gasket (basic P/N 7C155, trans tag number needed) will be needed as well. Note: Do not loosen the 10mm head bolts on the solenoid body. Only loosen the 8mm head bolts.
If the solenoid has been replaced and the condition it still present, suspect a contamination issue of the solenoid or a sticking pressure relief valve.

If this condition is occurs it may be due to a problem in the cooling fan electric clutch. This may be accompanied by transmission range sensor codes P1705 (TR not indicating neutral on self test), P0706 (TR-P sensor frequency fault) and P0707 (TR-P sensor circuit duty cycle low input). Check the voltage at the TR sensor pin 21, circuit 371, it should read 12 volts. If the voltage is low (3-4 volts), unplug the cooling fan electrical connector and retest. If the voltage is now 12 volts, try starting the engine. If it starts, clear codes and test drive to see if the TR sensor codes return. If they do not, diagnose the cooling fan electric clutch.

Temperatures and OBD-II info:

An aftermarket temperature gauge is highly recommended.

The "Factory" transmission temp gauge, it is a glorified "idiot" light as its response is severely dampened. The panel gage will show the temp as fully warmed up at 50 *F. Between 100-220F the needle will remain in the same position on the gauge. At 230F it will move up slightly to the middle of the normal range. At 250F it will move to Yellow. The gage moves to red at 280. This is supported on page 36 of the OBDII Theory and Operations manual. The tow/haul light will flash at 275.

I am probably being conservative, but transmission temps much over 230 are probably a little too warm for continuous service in my opinion. Similarly, I would recommend to never exceed 250 for more than a short duration - say 30 minutes. Note - this is because a measured temp of 250 actually means some areas and parts may be as high as 300 - synthetic tranny fluid should be good to 300 *F or so.

Recommended in the manual: Change the fluid and external filter every 30k.

The external filter (FT-145 or part # 3C3Z-7B155-BA OR aftermarket filter NTZ09-C09B) is behind the passenger side front bumper. I used an impact wrench to get the filter housing off to avoid twisting lines. It takes a 22 mm 6 point socket. You will lose very little fluid through changing the filter - only a few ounces.
To change the fluid, you can either drop the pan, drain, and refill, or you can flush it. If you have it flushed, it must be done with a heated machine (170 *F minimum - the thermostat begins to open at 165*F) to open up the internal thermostat (more than 90%) to get the torque converter flushed also.
If you drop the pan and the internal screen is clean, do not change. It only stops trees and boulders. Gasket is reuseable if not damaged.
Do not switch "to and from" Reverse without stopping completely. This is stated in the owners manual. It also states to not "rock" between Reverse and Drive for more than 1 minute or damage may occur. It needs just the basic care and PM and it should treat you very well.

4th Gear applies the Forward, Intermediate, and Overdrive Clutches.
5th Gear applies the Forward, Direct, and Coast Clutches.
6th Gear applies the Forward, Direct, and Overdrive Clutches.

Essentially, the transmission basically operates as a 3-speed transmission with a gearsplitter, (the splitter being the overdrive pack).

1st gear is Low; 2nd gear is Low-"Over".
3rd gear is Intermediate; 4th gear is Intermediate-"Over".
5th gear is Direct; 6th gear is Direct-"Over".

Primary shift strategy shifts in the following order: 1-2-3-5-6. 4th Gear is skipped.

The only conditions under which 4th gear is actually used is under certain specified tow-haul downshifts; and primarily, cold-shift strategy.

Cold shift strategy is as follows: 1-2-3-4
Cold shift strategy is only used when the transmission fluid temperature is below 5deg.F
</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
With the fluid temperatures low, the fluid flows at a much slower rate through the transmission. The direct clutch apply pack is a torsionally-weak clutch under almost any conditions, and is known to have the most issues regardless. With fluid temperatures low and viscosity high, the time it takes for the already weak clutch direct clutch to apply is simply too long and over time, will cause transmission damage. In order to address the issue, Ford uses the intermediate and overdrive clutches to replicate an almost identical ratio using the two largest and case-splined apply packs in the transmission. This increases the torque-holding capacity of the transmission in the lower operating temperatures and prevents from damaging the direct drive pack until temperatures come up and viscosity comes down to a point where the pack will apply suitably fast.

Filter and Fluids - REMEMBER - ONLY USE MERCON SP (Ford factory synthetic transmission fluid:

If you drop the pan, you will need 8-9 quarts of fluid, depending on how much drains. If you want to do a full change you'll need at least 18 quarts. Your truck doesn't have a drain plug in the torque converter, you'll need to do a flush to get all the fluid out.</TD></TR><TR style="HEIGHT: 222.75pt; mso-height-source: userset" height=297><TD class=xl29 style="BORDER-RIGHT: windowtext 1pt solid; BORDER-TOP: windowtext 1pt solid; BORDER-LEFT: windowtext 1pt solid; WIDTH: 634pt; BORDER-BOTTOM: windowtext 1pt solid; HEIGHT: 222.75pt; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent" width=845 height=297>Change External Filter:
Loosen the filter bowl w/ an impact wrench - 22 mm 6 point socket.
Remove bowl by hand and discard all old fluid.
Do not throw out the bottom spring assembly.
Clean up the bowl, spring assembly and upper fitting with paper towels. Be careful not to get dirt into anything.
Insert new, dry filter element into upper fitting (filter base that the housing screws into)
Make sure it is in properly and the tube is not crimped.
Insert the bottom spring assembly into filter element.
Make sure it is in properly and the tube is not crimped.
Fill up the bowl 3/4 of the way with new, clean fluid. Just a few ounces needed.
Slowly lift it up around the filter element.
Move slowly so the filter element absorbs the fluid.
When the bowl meets the threads of the upper assembly,
slowly start screwing the bowl on by hand.
Once the threads are properly started, screw it on all the way by hand.
Hit it for 2 or 3 hammers with impact wrench.
You are done - now clean up!

Can't personally vouch for this - just a link I saved:
