This model is for unmodified vehicles looking to upgrade to a transmission that will shift better and last longer than the factory model. So everything turns more easily, which reduces drag in the converter and allows the engine to spin up more quickly. . What kind of warranty coverage are you looking for? You should not, however, have to bang or otherwise force the converter into position. Specifically, this transmission was used behind 2. Both factors are critical in terms of performance because the converter essentially hangs off the back of the crankshaft and must be spun at engine rpm.
Is the dipstick calibrated marked for the correct fluid level or do you need to mark it yourself once you have determined the pan is full of fluid? I am planning on trying to handle this repair myself with a mechanically adept family member and as I said I was hoping to have a better feeling on what the issue is before tackling it. Remove the exhaust pipe, then disconnect the speedometer cable and the shift linkage from the transmission. We receive numerous calls about these where someone has rebuilt the transmission, yet still experiences the same symptoms. If the speedometer cable is still in your way, you can use a zipline to secure it out of the way. The 5R55E is a 5 speed automatic that adapts to a wide variety of engines including V6, 2. Like all things mechanical, a transmission will not last forever, regardless of how well you take care of it.
You can have a gear ratio error code without having an electrical code solenoid , but it is unlikely that you will have an electrical circuit code without a gear ratio error code. The automatic transmission super kit which includes all gaskets, seals, o-rings, lip seals, sealing rings, lined and steel plates, filter, front band, popular bushings. I did have the transmission scanned by a repair shop and the returned codes were p0732 and p0735 indicating slippage in the respective gears. From 1994 to 2012 it was featured in Ford Aerostar, Explorer, Ranger, Mazda B2500, B3000, B4000, B2300, Mercury Mountaineer's and more. It was extensively used throughout the different Ford brands, including Lincoln and Mercury. The brass sleeve has proven to be more durable then the aluminum case, giving you more stability. Have you been able to determine how much the extra 4 quarts of fluid has lowered the normal operating temperature of the transmission? Solenoids are fairly inexpensive as far as replacement parts go and are also fairly easy to replace.
Lower the transmission on a shop jack so that you can access the torque converter. The set includes every rubber seal, paper gasket, O-ring, sealing rings, and metal clad seals that you will need to complete your rebuild. Position the jack under a sturdy portion of the Explorer, such as the axle, and either put it on jack stands or use wheel chocks to hold your Explorer in place. Here are a few things that every shop owner and vehicle owner should know about the. Because the transmission is electronic, the line pressure can be increased electronically. The cooler gives you added protection from the heat that tends to spell doom for an automatic transmission. Warranty: This transmission comes with a 1 Year 36,000 Mile Warranty with the purchase of a new torque converter.
Apply oil comes up through the servo pin bore and through the hollow pin applying the servo. The external oil cooler required another 45 minutes. This heavy-duty utility package includes a utility super kit which has everything in the super kit plus an updated heavy-duty high energy lined intermediate band. Which in my opinion is a lot for an auto. It is also a good idea to clean or replace the cooling system when replacing your automatic transmission, so check out the protection kits at the upgrades tab. Even with about 140k miles on it.
Also, with the extra oil it will be heated in slower rate. In this case, the high duty cycle of use wears down the bore reducing clutch and servo pressures. Hook the wires from your ohm meter to the two leads coming off the solenoid. Fast Lane transmissions retain the stock shift pattern for the ease of driving you look for in an automatic transmission. Re-manufactured transmissions are the same or better than a new transmission at a fraction of the cost. All variants are fundamentally similar to each other in design but differ in things such as specialized controls, gear ratios, or other elements based on the needs of the specific application the transmission is intended for.
United States Army Drill Sergeant J. The Fast Lane model transmission features: The latest technology in our industry with the best internal components for increased strength and dependable performance. This transmission may not come equipped with a new Speedometer Gear or Tail-housing. Even with about 140k miles on it. I have a delay shift into forward and reverse.
Valve Body Gasket: The valve body gaskets on these transmissions are known to decay and blow out. Email us for application information if you're not sure which one you need. A re-manufactured transmission also comes with a : three years compared to 90 days for a rebuilt transmission. The converter needs to connect at three levels—the input shaft, the stator support, and the front pump gear—so you may need to spin the converter a bit to get all three engaged. Re-connect and tighten the torque converter bolts, tighten the mounting bolts that connect the transmission to the engine, and re-install the crossmember and the mounting rack. The 5R55W appeared in models of the Ford Explorer and Ford Ranger from 11.
The 5R55E featured more precise computer controls necessary to accommodate the additional forward gear and introduced with a sophisticated friction-to-friction shift ability. The 5R55S, minus the SelectShift feature, was used in models of the Ford Mustang from 2005 until 2010. In addition we packed every 5R55E with a ton of upgrades, from shift kits to the improved valve bodies you will feel the performance. With the car running—even if you are sitting in the pits—the transmission may not be engaged, but the water temperature will come up to operating temperature. The 5R55E, though mechanically similar to the 4-speed 4R55E, was a new breed of electronically controlled automatic transmission with an additional forward gear. I have had the truck for less than a week and have experienced no real slippage or hard shifting but I have seen the postings all over the net about the 5r55e transmission and various problems with blown valve body gaskets, bad servo, speed sensors and bore hole issues.
Towing over the maximum recommended max load or staying into the throttle hard going up a steep hill on a hot day will cause the transmission to overheat. Scott Mine in my ranger seems to shutter i guess. Heck honestly if someone has a clue give me a call or shoot me a text at 7068791518 names brandon. The transmissions are fundamentally similar in design, varying only in the durability of key components based on the type of duty they were to be used for. Mostly specific difference between 5R55W wide shift and 5R55S synchronic shift is a different overdrive planet gear ratio. You can piggyback the external oil cooler with the existing oil cooler in the radiator.
