How can I replace a valve body in my ford contour automatic transmission?

I was told that my valve body needs replacement on my Contour. The pan is on the side so I was wondering if it is easier to replace then if the pan was on the bottom.

SOURCE: Draining Battery on 1996 Ford Contour

you will need to do a test with a battery light disconnect the negative wire on the battery and connect one end of the test light to the battery and the other to the terminal with everything switched off if the test light is lit you have a draw if it is not lit then it is something else sometimes door switches and glove box switches wear out and need added lift to properly shut the open circuit down

Could you show me or tell mewhere the transmission filter is located on a 1997 ford contour 2.5ltr. v-6?


You have to drop the transmission pan with gasket to get to the transmission filter. About 5 quarts or so of transmission fluid will come out when you drop the pan. You have to buy a new transmission gasket. Do not reuse the old gasket.

We do not have diagrams of this setup, but the shift solenoids are all one piece or rack of solenoids you could say, they are located inside the transmission attached to the valve body of the transmission, to access them you must remove the pan on the bottom of the automatic transmission.

How do you replace a 1996 ford contour shift solenoid?


It isn't easy. You need to remove the pan on the front of the transmission first. Then after you get the pan off you have to unbolt the solenoid. But in order to remove the solenoid block you have to remove the valve body on the cd4e to get the solenoid plug out of the transmission case.
