    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

    hey boss ive got a transmission question for you. I own a 2004 f150 newer body style with a 5.4 triton engine 2wd. last year in august I took my family on vacation which was out of state so the drive was about 22 hours. on the way there I noticed that going at about 40-45 mph I would feel a small almost not noticeable kick. I didn't think much I thought perhaps the weight from what we were carrying and the truck is lifted with big mud terrain tires on it. I proceeded to my destination got there fine with no problems but on the way back home I stopped to put gas and as I was leaving the gas station going back on the freeway once it hit 35-40 mph it started revving up but not shifting into gear so just slipping it seemed.

    Hi jk080, Mark told me to ask you about my problem with my 2001 F150 SVT Lightning with a 4r100 transmission. maybe you can help me. It didn't shift up into the 2nd at normal rpm like always before, I was keeping accelerating and by about 4500 rpm I heard a loud BANG. When I arrived to the destination I've put it into the "R", and NO reverse, like I it will be in the "N". The next day the reverse was working again, no sign of failure, I drove a few yards and it doesn't shift up into the 2nd, but I went from gas at 3000 rpm and it shifted, no problems with the 3rd and 4th. I took down the oil pan to check the valve body and I found a chuck, it seems like it would be from the mechanical diode(I've seen pics on the net where the diode was broken and it looks very similar). What you mean? If I have a broken diode can I replace it with a 5 clutch direct drum with sprag OWC from the 7,3 diesel models or should I buy a 4 clutch direct drum? What else should be replaced?
    Thanks for any advice

    I just drove back from Stockton,Ca to Snellville. I lost OD with about 300 miles left in the trip. I have an 07 STX excab 4x4 with 135k on it. If you are still in the transmission game and you are not swamped before the Holiday I would love for you to have a look. I hauled a new body and one piece front end for my old 69 Bronco back and I need to go up north of Detroit to pick up a powder coated chassis. If you are still working in the field or if you could recommend a good shop it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Shon Ivey 707-391-0786

    I am new to this forum so I may be commiting a significant social error. If so please forgive me...however, I have a 2006 F-150, 5.4L engine, 3.54 axle, supercab with trailer towing package. A few weeks ago while slowly accelerating up a hill I noticed the transmission trying to downshift out of overdrive in an almost stuttering fashion. Almost like it couldn't decide if it should shift or not. It had done this several times but only at the times where there is a slow acceleration. On normal acceleration onto highways it appears to shift fine and only acts weird around the 45 mph range. I notice your shop is in north Georgia and I would like to stop by and see if you can diagnose the problem. Can this be done? Where is your shop located? Thanks for the help.
