    Wow! Just my luck I guess. Alright knowing that I doubt this trans is going back in the truck then, I'll get a cheap used one to throw in for now to run as I rebuild and beef this one up and just stay close to home just in case hahaha! Thanks so much for the help! Really appreciate it.

    0500757Arf I may be looking at a rebuild in the future. On a scale of 1-10 how worn would you say that shell and direct drum are? The truck is just a weekend run around truck and won't be seeing crazy towing or anything so just trying to decide whether it's worth it to do all these trans upgrades while it's out and easy to work with or if that shell and direct drum are on their last leg and I should hold off til it finally goes for good and just do them all to a new transmission when the time comes.

    Hey I was referred to you about my transmission woes by a fellow member. Long story short I have a E4OD 4x4 trans that was dropped on its input side from a few feet in the air and it broke the stator shaft off the pump. Pulled the pump off & dropped the pan & found some areas that were concerning. 1st picture is of behind the pump, only piece that concerns me is the area circled. The 2nd picture is from inside the pan right above the shifter linkage inside the pan. It looks to be a rotational impact damage not a vertical drop impact damage but not sure. I'm completely ignorant in transmissions and was told you've been inside quite a few E4OD's so figured I'd get your personal opinion on the subject. Thanks a bunch!

    Thanks so much for responding! My thought is that it probably isn't a transmission issue per se either since it does shift fine with the OD off. I am going to bring it by a friend's place today who hopefully can scan more stuff than I can and see what is going on. Will keep you posted and THANKS!!!

    Got a quick question if you have time. I have a 4R75W (I think) in a 2005 2wd Eddie Bauer Expedition. 200K miles, clear red fluid. Issue is that with the O/D selected (light off) it won't shift out of first gear. With the O/D de-selected (O/D light ON) it shifts fine, but of course then I don't have access to O/D. No OBD codes or panel lights. Weird. I'm guessing maybe a bad solenoid but was wondering if you had thoughts? THANKS!!!

    i had the code read and its p0740. i went and got a new tcc solenoid and checked the harness that runs along the passenger side of the truck and it wasnt burnt nor did it have any damage so yesterday i replaced the shift solenoids and the hard plastic wire harness and it still does the same thing. there was no metal shavings or debris in the pan when i took the pan off and the fluid is not burnt. i dont know if a seal or o-ring in the valve body might be bad but im not convinced that the trans is toast

    hi im hoping im not bothering you but ive been researching for 2 days and im not sure where to go next. when my truck shifts into 3rd it hits neutral and i have to push the O/D button to turn the O/D off and i can drive in 2nd. it started off when it would go to shift to 3rd i would have to let off the throttle and let the rpms come down and then it would engage and be fine until i stopped and then i would have to do it over again until one day i left a stop light and it quit going into 3rd all together. the O/D light does not come on or flash only the service engine light does.

    Hey man I see you know your way around trannys. Im rebuilding my E4OD and am assembling the valve bodies today and i was looking over an old post for the check ball locations and i noticed on the 91-95 models like i have, im missing the spring that goes under the little filter in the valve body. Is it not going to function properly without the spring and filter in? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    when I bought the truck it had receipts that showed the transmission had been rebuilt by a ford dealer at about 90000 miles currently it has about 140000. unfortunately I once again have to take a trip family emergency and that is the only vehicle where my family and I fit comfortably. I pick the truck up tomorrow from the shop that rebuilt the engine. what is your opinion on the current state of the transmission? or what should I check to secure that it wont take a s*** on me halfway to my destination? thanks in advanced for your time. sorry long message had to cut it in 3

    I would hit the overdrive off button and it would drive normal. luckily we made it home and at the time I had no money to even have someone look at it so I only used it for small trips to the store nothing to far and it was fine as long as the overdrive off button was pressed. out of the blue about 2 weeks after driving it like that it went back to normal. meaning it drives perfectly fine without having to press the od off button. it drove fine with no more apparent tranny issues for almost a year until the motor seized on me apparently due to the infamous ticking noise it had for a long time. my question to you is do you think it was just the heat that caused it to malfunction like it did? when
