    At the least you'll need to replace the converter AND tear the trans down and clean everything. While it is all apart, rebuild it with old parts? Especially since it could be that the trans has failed, not the converter. The only way to know if the trans or the converter is the problem is to take the trans completely apart.

    Hey Mark I have a 2005 F250 6.0 with the 5R100 Tow haul light started flashing and truck shifting bad and had delay going into drive or reverse and noticed trans is getting too hot like wothin 5 miles easily 180 degrees. Trans fluid was darker than should be and had kind of friciton material in it. We flushed it and changed fluid. Hooked up to scanner got some codes for tcc and e solenoid replaced them and temp sensor. Now truck shifts great but still throwing code P01744 and overheating should Inreplace torque convertor or just get new tranny

    I'm finding what you mean by pushing in the same way the column on the van it had linkage shifter, the 92 Tbird cable has a little different range in the pattern
    Another ? Did ford make longer cables for the shifter the one I got was from a 92 Tbird only 24" or so

    Hello Mark,

    I'm trying to help a friend who's had a lot of bad luck and, due to this fact, is very short on money. He recently inherited a '97 F250 Extended Cab 4x4 with the 7.3L Diesel and the E40D. The truck in question sat for a year before my friend got it due to an electrical issue -- that problem has since been repaired. The present complaint is a slow shift from 3rd to 4th. When he drives the truck slowly, the transmission shifts smoothly, apparently, but when the truck isn't babied, he hears an audible humming and experiences a delay in the 3rd to 4th shift. I'd greatly appreciate your thoughts on this issue, and would also like to ask you if changing the transmission fluid (ATF) and the transmission filter could possibly have any kind of negative effects.

    Thanks very much for your consideration...

    Yeh, that is my thoughts too...the tunes. I can't really REMOVE the tunes cause I replaced my split-shots with single-shot have to have some tunes for the engine to run right. But, I will try some of the original tunes I got. So, you don't think this is a valve body issue? or clogged filter? or TC? 1 other symptom is it seems to slip for a second btwn 1-2nd...usually more so when warmed up......again PHP says that isn't their issue, but a tranny issue. They said they even removed the "delay" setting.
