Question about 1997 Ford F250 SuperCab

1 Answer

F250 automatic transmission still slipping after it was rebuilt.

If the computer was bad in the transmission how would the transmission act? I just had it rebuilt by a guy who has been doing this all his life and come highly recommended. However, first I had a pump issue and now even after a rebuild and new pump and nex torque converter it slips after it warms up. I wondered if the computer was messing up the fluid flow?

I would have your speed sensor checked out as they can send a false signal to the computer to make it think that the tranny is slipping and / or the torque converter is failing. Good luck and remember to rate all the solutions you get. Thanx.

    Most vehicles have two speed sensors now a days one is usually built into the speedometer and the other iseither on the transmission or connected to the backing plate of the rear wheel could be either side. To test it you need to locate it and you will need an ohm meter, you will need to jack the back wheels off of the ground and unplug the sensor, then with the ohm meter on the sensor connecting pins you will need to rotate the rear wheels. the ohm meter should jump from like 4 ohms to infinity ohms if the sensor is working properly. Good luck.

There is no cheap fix for a slipping transmission. If it is an automatic transmission it will need rebuilt. If it is a manual transmission it will need a new clutch kit put in it.

I have a 2002 Audi A6 2.4 V6 Multitronic. The problem with it is that the gears do not engage. Should I buy a new gearbox or have this one fixed?

Im assuming you have an automatic, first check that the fluid level isn't low. Other than that there's not much else you can do yourself. Automatic transmissions are extremely complicated, and require special tools and knowledge to diagnose and repair. Your transmission may only need a relatively simple repair so don't just go out and buy one. Take the car to a reputable transmission shop, or a repair shop that services automatic transmissions. If they determine your entire transmission is bad, it is almost always cheaper to purchase a rebuilt transmission than to have your transmission rebuilt.

Transmission slip wont move

once an automatic transmission starts slipping that is it, it must be tron down the system flushed of all clutch material and rebuilt, this requires a very high degree of training and skill, automatic transmission repair is a very specialized field and takes years to learn. If u plan on repairing this your self, flush the fluid out of the lines and cooler and then buy a factory rebuilt transmission and torque converter.
