Question about 1994 Ford F150 Styleside Supercab

1 Answer

94 F150 2-wheel drive 4-speed automatic, first thing in the AM, I put it in gear and I can?t feel it engage (forward or reverse). I flutter the gas a little bit, it slowly starts to move and in a few seconds we are off. The rest of the day, no problems, I put it in gear and you can feel it grab hold. What gives and thanks for your valuable time. Chuck Smith

This is not good. It can be as simple as low or dirty fluid or as bad as a wornout valve body. If you know a reputable shop I would try to change the trans filter and put in new fluid.
There are some models that have a check valve under the filter so I am not advising doing it yourself.
The torque converter is your pump and it can be sluggish with dirty fluid and low rpm as you describe.
The simple maintenance may be all you need. Good Luck.

Why would a vehicle in reverse move forward


The question is a little vague but I think I know what your referring to. All modern automatic transmissions have torque converters. This is the device that connects the engine to the transmission. All vehicle manufacturers like the trans to be nice and smooth shifting. That's great but it does come with some minor drawbacks. If you are facing slightly down hill and you put your car in reverse but do not step on the gas slightly I can guarantee that you will indeed roll forward. You can eliminate that issue by holding your left foot on the brake while you shift into reverse. Then, as soon as you feel the trans engage, gently depress the gas pedal with your right foot and it will eliminate that forward roll problem.

4 speed automatic Transaxle


If it was moving prior to this repair then most likely the axle isn't fully engaged. This would make all the power go to that wheel and render the vehicle motionless. Make sure you got the right axle and that it engages into the final drive.

The reverse gears are not working.if you put the reverse gears it will accelerate infront instead.what do i do?


It sounds like the reverse band broke. Typically with automatic transmission when you put the transmission in reverse a couple things happen. Usually, the forward clutch engages and the reverse band engages holding the reverse drum from turning, which causes the planetery gears to make the vehicle move backwards. If the band breaks there is nothing told hold that drum from turning and you have a forward gear. The bad news is the trany is going to have to come out to be repaired and usually the reverse drum is one of the first things to go into the trany, so it has to be completely disassembled. Take it to a transmission shop have them check it, hopefully it's something simpler.

1998 Jeep Wrangler - Looking for proper way to put into 4 wheel drive and take back out to 2 wheel drive. Unsure if vehicle is suppose to be reversed after engaging or unengaging.


Best way to attain engagement without any grinding etc. is to pull 4x4 lever into gear while rolling at low speed. You can also in an emergency, turn the engine off and engage, then re-start (when you have been in 2wd and have gotten stuck in mud and can't roll) When dis-engaging, generally it will shift out with no problem while moving, but if it does not, then you can back up about twenty feet and usually that will work. (still beats getting out and doing it manually at the hubs!!)

Not sure if the hubs are engaging?


Well, the best way is to place the vehicle on a hoist and raise all 4 wheels off the ground and put it in 4WD and see if all the wheels start turning.

Another way is to make a really sharp (slow) turn while the unit is in 4 wheel high or 4 wheel low on dry pavement. You should be able to feel the driveline wrap-up caused by the front wheels trying to grab during the hard turn.

4 Low should be easily distinguishable from 4 High as well as 2 Whl when you accelerate and it feels like the transmision is stuck in low gear and the engine starts screaming for mercy at high RPM and you are only doing 30 MPH.

1991 Ford F150 Jumps out of 4W drive sometimes in reverse


My 94 did the same thing. In a automatic, you have to come to a full stop, it usually grinds when in 4L ,And for the shifter, I had to look at mine, 2w is all the way forward to the dash, then 4H is toward you 1 click, and "N" is the next toward you, then 4L , you have to push the lever down and pull backwards. Always come to a full stop when changing gears and wait a few seconds before changing direction.

Noise when engaging 4wd


I have had this problem and it could be one of three things, first the truck has automatic locking hubs, lack of lubrication to these hubs could cause them to make exessive noise while engaging. also you could need to lubricate your universal joins on your forward drive shaft. lastly my problem was abs wheel sensor actuator in drivers front hub had (internal part of hub looks like a large gear with teeth) had broken a gear off causing the hub to get wear in it making it clunk while engaging the four wheel drive.
