Need your advise please as I suspect this could be an issue with the valve body. Note the orientation of the spring lever. It was the valve body. Posted by on Monday, February 18th, 2013 The. For example, the valve body has a 2-3 shift valve which is responsible for up shifting from 2nd gear to 3rd gear. It does it at cruising speed when barely holding the throttle. Replace vs Rebuild Some transmission repair shops might offer the option of rebuilding your current valve body instead of replacing with a brand new or remanufactured one.
Here is how an auto trans valve body works along with common signs and symptoms you may experience when a transmission valve body is bad. Scott Mine in my ranger seems to shutter i guess. I have also circled the gear selector valve and how it attaches. It is common for the plunger valve to become stuck open, or for the canister to wear. This can sometimes save you some money, especially for some higher end cars. This decreases line pressures and results in delayed engagements.
I have a problem with my automatic transmission and from my research on the 722. The Audi dealer said that when they opened up the transmission they observed that the Valve body is damaged and needs replacement as the circuits on it are not properly transmitting the signals and the jerks are as a result of this. Hello, I am at my wits end and was wondering if I could ask your expertise on the 5r55e transmission. The canister o-ring relaxes and pressure bleeds past it. Some are available with built in fans allowing you to install them wherever you want. Once you are on the work bench you can remove the three bolts that hold the separator gasket on. Apply oil comes up through the servo pin bore and through the hollow pin applying the servo.
I recently purchased a 2000 ford explorer with a 6 cylinder and 4wd. They have been trying to identify the issue for 10 months. Even Reverse was not possible. The smallest dirt can make a valve stick! The overdrive servo bore will usually have more wear due to it being used for second and fifth gear. Gear ratio error codes are very common on these transmissions due to servo pin bore wear occurring at a very low mileage, in some cases. I owned it for 2 weeks and 500 miles before it failed to start, then ran in what seemed like only first gear.
I ended up following every oil path with a light to see if there were any other pieces. What do you think the issue could be? Re-manufactured transmissions are the same or better than a new transmission at a fraction of the cost. You do not need to remove any of the bolts to go this. My 1995 Escort was shifting funky at slow speeds but after a few more fluid changes everything smoothed out. The 5R55S, minus the SelectShift feature, was used in models of the Ford Mustang from 2005 until 2010. You can slightly reduce your costs by purchasing a re-manufactured valve body assembly if one is available for your vehicle.
This has greatly reduced the gear jerk from stationery position but not eliminated it. The most common problem we see on these units is the excess wear on the case or valve body. The jerk feeling while driving is still felt once in a while. There are dozens of various passages and channels within the valve body which direct the flow of pressurized hydraulic fluid to different valves in order to activate the right clutch pack or band and shift to the most appropriate gear based on the current driving situation. Below is a picture of the wires attached: In this photo you can see the gold bolt which holds a bracket on. And than it stopped until the other day it started up again. I would just recommend reusing the old gasket.
Transmission case premature wear occurs on the overdrive and intermediate servo bores. Once the filter is off you can make a template of you valve body bolts. Doesnt seem to happen much when the engine is cold. Make very sure that you are keeping all parts clean and installing clean bolts. Now that you have the template you can remove the wiring harnesses of the solenoids. Mostly specific difference between 5R55W wide shift and 5R55S synchronic shift is a different overdrive planet gear ratio.
Torquing of the valve body is critical. You must do it in order and have a uniform torque. Have warranty for transmission but they claim the repair shop cannot show physical signs of damage therefore they deny the coverage. Can enaone help me , please. Now you must remove a couple of bolts on the side of the trans that hold the manual detent lever spring. The new valve will install in the hole and there is a dimple on the valve that needs to be oriented straight up.
Correction: This drop-in-place assembly includes a harder canister with more support for the plunger valve, which prevents sticking. They are replacing it now. You should get a new bolt with the filter so you should be able to discard this bolt. I thought it was only in od, but it did it taking off a couple of times. Shifted from 1-6 just fine once i got out.
The trans now goes into reverse good but when I go to drive it has a long 1-5 second delay. Next reinstall the manual detent return spring and make sure ur valve is installed correctly: Now you should be ready to plug the wires back in on the solenoids. Common Problems for The Ford 5R55E Transmission: Do You Know What They Are? This is what allows the transmission to have more elaborate and advanced control schemes than non-electronically controlled transmissions. There are check valves in the valve body and you want them to stay there, so keep the open valve body face up. Then install the new retainer. Install the pan and than add oil. Think of each channel as a tumbler on a lock which has to perfectly line up so transmission fluid is directed where it should.
