Many of the parts between the 4R44E and the 5R55E units may look the same, but are not all interchangeable. I can jiggle it back and forth a little but it acts as if there is a small hicky on it preventing it from coming past it's normal resting point. A fantastic comparison lies therein. Loss of certain gears can occur due to issues in at least two other circuits. This was after flushing the cooler lines for about 20 minutes. I have 2 5R55Es that I need to fix.
That decision is ultimately yours, as you forecast how long a marginal bore may last. Should i check the silinoids , it isnt throwing any codes. Will mess with it tomorrow. We replaced all damaged hard parts while doing the overhaul and even a few that probably did not need replacing. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated greatly. I just don't see how it could have gotten misaligned so I wonder if we're about to waste more time and fluid. This manual cannot be used to rebuild the 4R44E transmission.
Fluid looks good, change about 10k ago. We found bits of metal throughout the valve body but not many pieces. This valve can be Wet Air Tested as shown in Figure 6. These locate and hold plugs, which separate and seal oil circuits. I'm pretty danged sure we did everything right with the internals but I must have missed something important. Most properly functioning solenoids will return a reading of somewhere between 20 — 30 ohms.
When you're looking for an automatic transmission rebuild book to make your life easier, find everything you need for Ford, Chrysler and Chevy transmissions. Any special tools, tips and tricks would be helpfull as well. This is the most frustrating transmission job I've ever done. It does throw a P0734 and P0735 error code but since we know it isn't shifting, this isn't telling us anything. Experts in the field provide advice on the best components for the job and offer insight on reassembly for those looking to improve performance or make shift upgrades. With the proper repair, these can be just like money in the bank. The trigger wheel completed came apart and the overdrive ring gear snapped in half.
Today, we ran pressure tests and they passed in all gears. Maybe the right size drivers if you're planning on changing bushings and a piece or 4 sockets and c clamps works well for taking the clutch circlips out. Also if I was to look for a replacement would any 5R55E work? That decision is ultimately yours, as you forecast how long a marginal bore may last. Everything went really well except my overdrive doesn't work so I have a missing 2nd and 5th gear. We know this because we borrowed a friend's Snap-On diagnostic scanner and monitored things while we test drove it. Almost all of the metal was confined in the gears and bands.
It does throw a P0734 and P0735 error code but since we know it isn't shifting, this isn't telling us anything. Valve bore wear may occur at low service use, depending on driving conditions. Thanks again for the support. I have replaced the separator plate with a bonded one and put in the ford service kit. First day and about the first 14 miles was kinda scary.
Modifying valve control generally results in shift quality that will not meet customer expectations. I'm going to explain the things I did wrong and lessons learned. Don't try to work while they're there. Always install new servo pistons. I thought I had it figured out but after about 20 miles back and forth from work I drained the fluid and it was burnt again.
Also, if you make sure you put the valvebody checkballs back in the right spot. Very straight forward and I didn't need to use any special tools. I recently purchased a 2000 ford explorer with a 6 cylinder and 4wd. It's not recommended to use the torque converter in place of the proper alignment tool. I'm curious to see which way the lip is facing L end down toward the ground, or up toward the inside of the transmission.
