I just did a tranny swap on a 96 Ford f-150 4.9ltr with od tranny after changing the fluid and filter I started the truck and placed it in gear and the tranny would not engage how do I fix this?


Did you run the trans through the gears after putting in half the fluid and the add until full or just dump it in and try to go??
your torque converter may be air locked if you did not refilled properly, and can burn out very quickly

My 2000 Ford F 150 4x4 with 140000, trans F&F changed at 100000, recently hauled a load of horses cross country with the auto trans in non OD position. Now when my wife drives it in OD she says it...


If your wife is driving, it could actually be bumps in the road. Never heard of a converter lockup problem described like that. Is the OD light flashing?
A diagnostic scan that can detect pressure readings and solenoid voltage will be the best way to determine the health of your transmission.

2002 Ford Escape XLT OD light blinking - am told it may be a torque converter cellunoid - only has 80K on it & I bought it new! Any ideas? How expensive is the fix? Would it help to change the...


The Trans fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles or two years.
Changing any fluid on a vehicle is never a fix for anything,just preventative maintenance.
You should have done the Power Steering Fluid, Trans Fluid,Brake Fluid,Etc a couple of times,before getting to 80K.

Also I would hope you changed the spark plugs buy at least 60K.

You may have a TCC Solenoid going bad,but the engages the torque converter clutch.

Is it shifting into OD? Most likely you have a solenoid issue,but need to find out which one. Most fords have a solenoid pack in the trans,with all of them in one unit. Not sure on yours.

The only way it will be expensive, is if you go to a dealer or get pitched some story by a shop, not able to diagnose, what is most likely a simple fix.

I was wondering what rpm should my tacometer be at when going 70 mph? it seems high and im not sure if transmission is dropping into the final gear. the overdrive doesnt work either, is it stuck in...


Cruising speed rpm should be roughly 2200 rpm If OD (lockup) is not engaging it will be running at about 3,000rpm.
If it was staying engaged, you would not have a problem at cruising speed but would be "lugging" when taking off from a standstill. OD should come on at about 45mph and the tach should show a drop in rpm.

How do you know if your torque converter is bad on Jeep wrangler


First check fluid. Make sure it's full and clean and does not smell burned (compare to another good car)
Converter failure is usually most obvious when trans shifts to OD. if shift is late or makes bang noise going in, you likely have a problem. to check lockup, after od engages, lightly touch brake, trans should momentarily shift out of od. Whining is usually due to low fluid. Also check transfer case and both differentials for proper level and leaks.

1994 F350 transmission intermittent problem


I had the same problem in my 96 f-350. The transmission has slipped recording a slip code in the transmission. You can pull the codes and get it. I shifts into a safe mode that increases the pressure inside your transmission as part od a fail safe. Plain and simple, you have to have the tranny rebuilt.
