I subscribed to this thread a long time ago. I've gone through the original transmission, a Ford partial rebuild that lasted about a year, and then another partial rebuild that lasted 1 day of driving. Then finally a Motorcraft remanufactured unit that lasted a few years about 87,000 miles with proper 30,000 mile services. Then I bought one from a local transmission warehouse that is no longer in business that custom built it with whatever HD parts there was, which wasn't much or maybe nothing but it's outlasted the previous two rebuilds and doubled the time the Motorcraft remanufactured one lasted. I believe it's coming up close to 150,000 miles or maybe even 200,000 miles on it and as far as I can tell it's still good. The good thing is I got to keep the old transmission. I was wondering is it a rebuild a couple of friends could tackle with a fair amount of automotive experience combined and be confident that it may work? I've watched the videos and have the Ford guide. All it's doing is just sitting in my garage on a jack. I was told that at least the torque converter was bad when the transmission was replaced.

I forgot to say to put the TRS on the suspect list too, if line pressure checks out ok.

Exclamation

Can somebody fix the pictures in the article Common Fix For 4r55e / 5r55e Transmissions With A Bad Separator Plate And Valve Body Gasket? I planned on checking dropping the pan and inspecting the valve body this weekend and having the pictures would help immensely because I do not have a shop manual yet.

Thanks, Steve

2005 Ford ranger 3.0l automatic

Hey I have an 05 ranger 3.0l v6 I just got from a friend. 230,XXX miled and the transmission shifts really hard when going into overdrive. Sometimes it kind of grinds when shifting in and out of overdrive. Also it kind of lags sometimes and takes longer to go into overdrive. Help please.

Welcome to FTE
EDIT: WOOOPS I missed in the title that it's a auto tranny?.
Was it doing this when the friend owned it, or did it begin doing this suddenly after some event?
Check the tranny fluid condition & fluid level as called out in the owner manual.
Has the tranny been serviced as specified with the proper fluid & filter changes over time?
Use your ELM scan tool to have it look for & display pending, or set, trouble code clues on the viewing device of your choice as discussed here https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...-scantool.html & post All code Numbers, as they can help you & members focus your trouble shoot.
Some beginning thoughts for consideration, let us know what you find.
