Transmission temp sensor fault codes


Those sensors are inside the transmission base pan. Without the make, model and year it's hard to tell you exactly where. You may also have damaged or corroded wiring or connectors. Take it to a dealer.

Over drive light started flashing the other day. Took it to my mechanic he checked it out and told me there are metal flakes in the transmission fluid and that my transmission is failing. Is it possible...


Yes. the flashing light means you have a DTC fault code present. Youe need to have a dealer scan for the code and it will tell you what the issue is. Report back.
I would have the transmission fluid serviced, filter & flush. About $125 & about 1/2 hour to scan for the DTC code.

Transmission is leaking from my 2008 ford escape. The VIN number does show that it was manufactured in Kansas, but because i am in Canada the recall did not include canadian owners.


What do you need? I would cantact Ford of Canada in back of owner manual with letter, not phone, if issue is the same. TEXT:

In some of the affected vehicles, the transmission fluid cooler may develop a crack in the tube below the right hand (RH) mounting bracket from thermal and vibration fatigue. This may lead to a small transmission fluid leak and possible rough / harsh shifts. Dealers are to inspect the transmission fluid cooler for a grommet and possible fluid leak below the RH mounting bracket. Based on the results of the inspection, dealers will perform one of the following service

actions:

INSPECTION

1. Using a suitable light, look through the radiator grille and inspect the transmission fluid cooler mounting bracket for a grommet behind the mounting bolt. See Figure 1 and Figure 2.


Inspection Result Service Action

Grommet present - No further action required


Grommet not present and transmission fluid cooler not leaking - Install transmission fluid cooler mounting bracket


Grommet not present and transmission fluid cooler leaking - Install new transmission fluid cooler.

Ford trauras trouble code 732 - was told transmission code 732 was being produced, what does a code 732 say?


P0732 FORD - Incorrect Second Gear Ratio
Transmission in second gear and the ECM detected an incorrect gear ration. This diagnosis monitors actual gear position by checking the torque converter slip ratio calculated by Transmission Control Module (TCM) as follows:

Torque converter slip ratio = A x C/B

A: Output shaft revolution signal from revolution sensor
B: Engine speed signal from Engine Control Module (ECM)
C: Gear ratio determined as gear position which TCM supposes

If the actual gear position is higher than the position (2nd) supposed by TCM, the slip ratio will be more than normal. In case the ratio exceeds the specified value, TCM judges this diagnosis malfunction.

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Incorrect transmission shifting

Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

Tech notes
Start by inspecting the transmission fluid level and condition, and change fluid if necessary.


Hope helps.

Just my Service engine soon light is on for the second time and the code shows Torque Converter CKT Performance or stuck


The lockup function in the Torque converter is not functioning correctly. Your RPM's rise when you come out of Overdrive. Do you have the button in the shifter that turns ON/OFF the Overdrive? You don;t get it at startup since you can't go into O/D till the engine is warmed up-bet as soon as you go into closed loop mode (when the O/D can work)-the light starts. Hopefully it's electrical outside the trans-if it's the converter itself-the trans has to be opened. Check TSB on this problem. Ut has to do with a transmission oil pump defect and repair procedure.

ISSUE:
Some vehicles may experience excessive torque converter slippage, torque converter not engaging, or Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) 628 or P0714 stored in memory. This may be caused by damage to the fluid pump support seal and/or to the groove on the pump where the seal is located.


ACTION:
Inspect the fluid pump seal for damage. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.


SERVICE PROCEDURE:
  1. Follow normal diagnostic procedures as listed in the appropriate Service Manual.
  2. Inspect the fluid pump support for damage. If damaged, also inspect the fluid pump support seal groove on the pump.
  3. If the groove is damaged, replace the pump.
  4. If the groove is not damaged, replace the fluid pump support seal with a redesigned Seal (F77Z-7L323-AA). Refer to Figure 1.
  5. Do not replace the torque converter unless it is damaged or fails the criteria listed in the appropriate Service Manual and/or refer to TSB 96-26-12.

This is something I recommend having a Ford Dealer do since they have the experience with the job.

When I start to drive my ford explorer the over drive light O/D come on and start to flashing. How I can fix the problem?


he overdrive off light flashing indicates that a problem with your
transmission has been detected. Take it to the dealer or a transmission
shop and get it checked out. If you continue to drive the Explorer with
the O/D OFF light flashing you can possibly damage the transmission.


Ford has issued a TSB on this problem. Has to do with a transmission oil pump defect and repair procedure.

Trans temp and od light is on what does this mean


Transmission Temperature light only comes on when the transmission has reached the operating limits and tells the temp sender to send a warning. The OD light is the Over Drive light.
There may be several reasons causing the Trans. Temp light to come on. The first would be if the transmission is low on transmission fluid.
Place you vehicle on a level surface. You can check this by letting the vehicle warm up to normal operating temperature, then open the hood and remove the transmission dipstick and wipe it clean with a paper towel or shop rag. Then reinsert it and remove it again, holding it horizontal look at the end of the dipstick. You will see a level mark and a add mark. If it's on the add mark then you need to add transmission fluid. Do not add more then 8 ounces at a time, before rechecking the level.
If the fluid is full, smell the fluid on the dipstick, does it have a burnt smell?
If the fluid has a burnt smell or it's a dark brown color then you will need to change the transmission fluid and filter.
The Overdrive light is on due to high transmission temp or because the Overdrive button has been pushed. ( If equipped with a manual overdrive button)
When the transmission is hot it will turn the overdrive off to increase the speed and pressure of the transmission fluid to help cool the transmission.
So this problem will go hand in hand if you find a problem with the transmission fluid.
You can also take you vehicle to you local auto parts store and have them check the engine codes. There may be another problem causing this issue.

30,000 mile service


Do you have the owners manual? It will list what the manufacturer recommends at 30k. Better yet, ask the dealer what is included for the $600+. If you post the list to me, I'll give you my opinion on what I recommend to have done, and what I believe isn't necessary. I have driven many cars to very high mileage, and all of these vehicles never went to a dealer for service (new and used). I feel the many service checks are for people that abuse their car, have money to burn, and want to support the dealerships service department. Honda makes a quality vehicle, if you change fluids and filters, you will enjoy it for many miles/years. Hope to hear from you with list.
