Question about 1991 Ford F250
1991 F250, 460 with e4od. The trans wants to start me out in 2nd or third when cold. After it warms up it shifts like a dream from first. I've been just parking it on a hill so I can get it rolling, by the time I get to town (7m) everything is fine. I have a spare trans in the garage but was told it may be a problem with the shift module and swapping the trans won't help. What are your suggestions? I have done fluid and filter on it regularly and the problem started after letting it set for a few weeks and having the flywheel changed.
The E4OD is a complicated tranny and unfortunately prone to many problems. There are three shift controlling solenoids inside the tranny mounted to the valve body. Without being able to actually drive to evaluate it makes it very hard to give you a starting point for trouble shooting. I have rebuilt many of the E4OD transmissions over the years and found them prone to many problems. That's why Ford quit using them. A tranny shop can hook up to two different line pressure ports to evaluate the problem. But, be warned they are going to recomend a rebuilt be installed. You will be looking at around $ 3300.00 dollars for the rebuilt unit.
