Help on the sequence of the automatic transmision ford f150 90 v8

Recently the automatic transmision gave out.So i went and bought a used automatic transmission ford f150 1990 v8. I put the transmission on when i went to test it none of the gears had worked. I want to know if there is a switch or a screw that you have to turn to get the gears to work? I f there is a sequence? or how do i go about knowing if the transmission actually works?

If youve got transmission fluid in it and it wont do anything it is a bad transmission, if it isnt shifting in a correct order then your then your modulator valve is unhooked, bad, or isnt on it and you have to buy one for about twenty dollars or so i think. I cant remember if it is on the drivers side or passengers side. It looks like a spark advance. I hope that helps you out.

Automatic transmision making grinding noise and will not move in drive or reverse


Loss of fluid or transmition pump went out. Replace as needed.

Transmition may need to be analyzed for any gear damage.

There is a motor on the back of the transfer case that controlls the 4x4 and it will "gum" up from lack of use. I would start with that.

I bought a used 1999 Ford F-150 Super Cab pickup a several years ago. The dealer didn't have the '99 owners manuel so they gave me the 2000 yr's manual. Well, I have been pulling a popup camper for years...


All I can tell you, is I would not own any vehicle with a 3.08 Gear

You need at least a 3.90 just to have a nice driver or even consider towing

Have a 1989 f 150 it had a 302 v8 in with a stick. motor and trans are gone can i put in a straight six and use existing wiring or will it be a pain i was even thinking of making it an automatic any info...


Ok. I went the other way .. I went straight 6 to V8 302.. rule 1: You cant use a fly wheel from an 8 to a 6 bc of the balance. if ya get an automatic 6 cyl combo,, youll need the 6 cyl chassis mounts bc the V8 is way to low.. and you'll have to rewire the dura spark to be a 6 cyl.. Its a pain.. But otherwise, No big deal

Transmission fluid


If your vehicle has the 5.2 liter,aka 318 cubic inch engine,there is only one transmission model applicable and it is the 42 RE which used to be designated the A500.It is a 4speed overdrive transmission.If installing a rebuilt trans and new remanufactured dry torque convertor.You add 4 quarts initially,then fire the engine and add another 5-6 quarts for a total capacity of 9-10 quarts.Fluid level is checked with the trans in Neutral.If you are only dropping the pan,you will replace roughly 4 quarts.The transfer case fills separately,but uses the same automatic transmission fluid.Capacity for the transfer case is about 2 quarts/fill to the bottom of the fill plug hole.Good luck.
