AL4D Tranny Troubles (HELP ME!!)


Help!!!!!
I overheated an AL4D in a 93 4.0 Ranger 4x4 towing a bassboat, it slipped and fried the clutches. Trying to save myself the $1600 REBUILD on a truck thats been wrecked and is not monetarily worth much, (but I hate to junk it cause functionally everything else works good) I bought a used tranny from a salvage yard. After installing and changeing fluid, (flushed coolers and torque converter as good as I could several times manually) new filter and fluid, droped it down fired it up and put it in reverse to back out the garage and it went forward

Checked linkages and even disconnected and worked it by hand, no matter where its at the tranny seems to be stuck in first gear, even in park it tries to fight the parking pawl. I pulled it out of driveway and drove down the road hoping something was just stuck and would work loose, no luck. It shifts from first to second but then will drop back to first and does not shift up after that. Back up it went and I pulled it back out, salvage yard is now "trying to find another one" am I farther ahead getting this one rebuilt and fighting to get my money back, or is changing over to a manual tranny a logical alternative? any and all help will be appreciated.

I Have never tried to rebuild an automatic myself and from what I here the AL4D is a real bear to work on, Is rebuiling it myself an option that is logical or would it not be a wise attempt?

Actually the A4LD is not that bad to work on. I just rebuilt an A4LD out of a '93 Explorer and it works great. It cost me about $500 to $600 (I really don't want to look) including having the torque converter rebuilt. A good place to get parts is Transtar Industries if they have a distributor in your area. Get the ASTG manual (about $15 - $20) and follow the instructions, they're very detailed and easy to follow and you don't need any specail tools.

This is a good website for some tips and links:
