    Hi Fordboy. I have a question about the 5R55E seperator plate fix. I have a 2001 ford ranger with the 5R55E, 4.0 sohc. In the post for the fix it describes removing a screen and a spring. Is this part of the updated version of the valve body? I ask because some tutorials on this procedure do not mention removing the screen and spring. Thanks Robert

    I have tried to read the Ranger suto trans problem thread (many posts), but want to make sure I am interpreting correctly. 2000 Ranger 4X4 4.0 5R55E w/149,000 and tranny rebuilt at 112,000, O/D light flash after 3 miles and continues until truck is re-started. Slipping in all gears, with hard shift sometimes, let off accelerator and rpms drop as though in nuetral. No power to wheels in extreme uphill or sandy situations. VBG issue or just crappy rebuild?

    FYI @ Door Lock technical article.
    Its requires an AOL signup & password so I didn't get to read it. Is there some other way to view it?
    I am trying to find out how the lock wires are routed on a 1991 Ranger. I have the colors and diagram.

    Matt, I just viewed you repair guide for the 4r55e 5r55e Ranger Auto transmission. Excellent work! Since the article was posted have you had any updates or modifications to the article? Where did you get the diagrams pictured in the article? I plan on attempting this repair on my 2004 Ranger but I want to be fully prepared before I begin. Thanks again for the excellent repair procedure.

    Ref: Battery Tutorial (link) atop the Ranger & BSeries forum.

    The FTE forums software link seems to be corrupt, as it won't redirect to the page I have typed in the thread & the link I have posted is still up & can be accessed as I have it listed in my post. Car and Deep Cycle Battery FAQ 2010, Battery Manufacturers and Brand Names List, and Battery References and Information Links List

    So something appears to have happened to corupt the redirect link on FTE's end. Can you put a fix on the redirect problem????

    EDIT: when I click on my posted link, I now get a 503 error, File Temporally Unavailable????

    Again this link is still up & working as I have it posted here, from other sites, like TCCA.

    Hi Matt,

    Could you send me a copy of the valve body gasket replacement that you had for the flashing OD off light in a 99 Explorer?

    That's what's happening to me after driving for a while, not all the time, and it doesn't seem to be going into limp mode after the light starts flashing, just some harder shifts, but no slipping.

    I think that your write up might give me a bigger window of opportunity to shop for a replacement for this oldie.

    Thank you, Mark
