Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

96 ford f-150, well that was the first problem. I continued to drive it with overdrive turned off. Then it got so it surges when you stop at a light and it's in gear. You have to rev it up a little to keep it running. The code was for idle valve. I have changed it twice It doesn't make any difference. I am at a loss . Need help

What was the first problem ??
If you have a trouble code for the idle air bypass valve, it means the valve is not working, not that the valve is defective. You could have a dirty throttle body or sludge in the port for the valve. The computer uses the valve to control air entering the intake to regulate idle speed.

SOURCE: rough idle; engine light appeared

I had that problem with my 2005 FX4 turned out to be a coil on #6 cylinder I replaced the coil my self and the light went out coil was $58.00.These trucks are sensitive to water in the gas you may want to add gas line antifreeze or isopropyl alcohol to your gas every other tank to displace any water which may be getting in there.

have someone scan it for transmission codes. Most likely it is your Torque Converter that is going out, but it could be a solenoid, What color was your fluid?

2003 f 150 transmission overdrive fuse


The problem is that either the wiring harness going to the overdrive control motor has chafed and is shorting out, or the overdrive control motor is bad. Check out the wiring harness VERY carefully, if it's OK replace the control motor.

You need to have it scanned. The pcm has a transmission code stored in the memory. The pcm uses the overdrive off light as a check engine light for the transmission.

Will not shift into overdrive


There is an electronic sensor on the outside of the transmission.Change the filter and fluid and replace sensor.The sensor costs around $150.
"High speed" probably is over drive,so if it is turned off,it can't engage.I have found that cutting the overdrive switch on and off can cause excessive wear and tear on the overdrive. 

Regardless have the car scaned for a any codes thay is causing the problem. Just trying to keep the cost of repairs down by know exactly what the ECM has in it's memory for any malfunction that is creating your overdrive from engaging.
Good luck and hope this helps
