I have a 1992 Ford F-150 with an E4OD transmission. The only gear that I can drive in is reverse. What do I need to check before ruling the transmission is bad?

It sounds like you've already ruled that. My suggestion would be drain the fluid and check for metal flakes, if you have them, you more than likely had either a clutch pack worn to the point of disengaement, a stuck valve body, or a hub/sprag that has self destructed. If it is a stuck valve body, I would suggest an overhaul anyway. If the valve body got stuck, it did so because of a piece of debris. Where did the debris come from? You guessed it, from something broken in the trans.

I have a f250 97 Ford heavy-duty. Truck . MY. Transmission. What go in drive. But reverse. Still. Strong. 1gear got me home whats wrong. The pump


This truck uses the E4OD transmission. It is an electronically driven tranny that changes gears when it receives a signal to do so. It sounds to me that either your control module has failed or you have somehow damaged the wiring between the tranny and the module. Another possibility is the wiring has simply popped off if you were by chance 4 wheeling in some rough terrain with high ground clearance that could have possibly brushed along the underside of your vehicle.

I have a 94 Ford f150 that drives in first but revs high until it hits 2nd gear then drives normal is my tranny slipping


chances are that you have an E4OD transmission. It a good transmission, however it's electronically controlled (the E, in E4OD). What this means is that many things outside of the transmission itself can cause the transmission to act up. First thing's first... ensure that your fluid level is sufficient. Then, click the link below to read the thread about the E4OD diagnosis process. good luck.

My 92 Ford Taurus has had shifting probs for about 5yrs, but recently it wouldn't catch any gear to move forward, and severely "bucked" in reverse. Mechanic says it might be speed sensor,...


Some speed sensors will help the transmission know when to switch gears, but with some of the things you describe, sounds like after driving it that long, damage to the transmission has occured. Also, it could be a bad torque converter. There is also something called the transmission torque converter clutch solenoid, causes the car to buck and cut off. Hope this helps, any questions just contact me.

I have a 1990 f-250 w/ a 351w e4od i lost over drive had a friend of a friend fix it got the truck back and the trans slips in and out of gears before he fixed the over drive i had no problems with any...


It seems as though he has made an adjustment on the bands. I would recommend that you take it to someone who knows how to work on a transmission. If you don't then you are goning to soon be buying another one. The e4od is a good transmission, but it can only take so much before it gives.

Transmission made a loud pop then quit moving in drive. Truck still moves in reverse


An automatic transmission consists of a series of bands (gears) which is each gear within the transmission. You state that truck will move in reverse, but not in drive. The loud pop you heard was the forward gear band breaking. From this point you have two options...either have the transmission rebuilt or replaced.

E4OD Trans stays in OD no matter where the shifter position is.


Transmission Description The E4OD transmission is a fully automatic, electronically controlled, four-speed unit with a torque converter clutch. The main operating components of the E4OD transmission include a torque converter clutch, six multiple-disc friction clutches, one band, one sprag one-way clutch and two roller one-way clutches that provide for the desired function of three planetary gear sets. Transmission gear selection in the (D) range and converter clutch operation is controlled by the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650). Operating conditions are relayed to powertrain control module by various sensors throughout the vehicle. The powertrain control module compares these conditions with electronically stored parameters and logically determines how the transmission should operate. A torque converter (7902) couples the engine to the transmission gearset via the input shaft (7017) and the torque converter impeller hub. The impeller hub provides engine rpm to the positive displacement pump. The flow from the pump is proportional to engine rpm, and excess pump capacity is exhausted back to the pump inlet. The input shaft transfers power into the transmission gearset. The power input is controlled by the application of the torque converter clutch, which is scheduled through the powertrain control module. The application of the piston plate effectively replaces the hydraulic coupling between the converter cover and the turbine with a mechanical coupling between the converter cover and the turbine hub. This mechanical coupling helps improve fuel economy and wide-open throttle performance by eliminating converter slip. Transmission shift selection and torque converter clutch operation are controlled by the PCM. They are calibrated to provide the optimal transmission state. This state is commanded to the transmission solenoid body. In the (D) range, automatic operation of all four gears is possible. The transmission control switch, located on the vehicle's shift lever disables overdrive operation and enables automatic operation through the first three gears. Whenever the ignition switch is turned on, the vehicle will automatically provide overdrive operation regardless of the switch position the last time the vehicle was running. Manual gear selection is available in the 1 and 2 range. Second gear is commanded when the gearshift selector lever is in the 2 range and when downshifted into the 1 range at speeds above approximately 56 km/h (35 mph) (for diesel 48 km/h [30 mph]). First gear is commanded in the 1 range at start-ups and when downshifted into 1 range below approximately 56 km/h (35 mph) (for diesel 48 km/h [30 mph]). Any reference to intermediate brake drum or direct clutch cylinder are one and the same.

I think this is your problem:

Programmable Speedometer/Odometer Module (PSOM): Description: The programmable speedometer/odometer module receives input from the rear brake anti-lock sensor, which is mounted on the rear axle differential housing. The PSOM processes this input signal information and relays it to the powertrain control module and the speed control module. This signal tells the powertrain control module the vehicle speed in miles per hour (mph). Used as an input in determining shift scheduling and electronic pressure control. Symptoms: Harsh engagements, firm shift feel, abnormal shift schedule, unexpected downshifts may occur at closed throttle, abnormal torque converter clutch operation or engages only at wide-open throttle (WOT). May flash transmission control indicator lamp. Diagnostic Trouble Codes: 452, P0500, P1500, P1501, P0503

Transmision


That is a lot of miles on the tranny. Being a Ford it probably has the E4OD tranny. The E4OD has several clutch packs in side. Sounds as though your direct drive clutch pack has gone out. Also the torque converter has a lock up mechanisim in side which may have given up the ghost . This tranny has improved over the years from the origional version. But, this tranny needs frequent service if towing a heavy trailer. Once the fluid gets burned it needs to be changed immediately or problems will result if you let it go and try to change later. Just to purchase a rebuilt if it is a E4OD will be around $3400.00. If you want to rebuild it the parts cost for just a basic kit will be around $900.00 to do it correctly. There are many hard parts to check for tolerances internally. By hard parts I am referring to sun and planetary gears and what not. I hope this has helped. I have rebuilt many Ford trannys over the years and the E4OD can be problematic at times. The newer versions are more reliable.
