Why my have ford F 150 4.2L HAVE LOSS reverse drive lately. my automatic transmission 4R70W. I've tried the ff: adjust linkage under the driver side but no fix; i've cleaned transmission oil filter and...

there is a reverse solenoid separate to the others. you may get a serious problem by the use of diesel as that fuel is still in the converter and will affect the transmission oil especially when the oil is the fault codes to find what is wrong.

Need to know how to change a clutch disc on 90 ford f150

  1. Remove the Old Clutch
    • 1Remove the exterior parts (those that are not in the engine compartment) to include the floor shifter inside the cab of your F-150 and the exhaust pipe
    • 2Remove interior parts--those parts that are under the hood. This includes the starter, which is attached to the transmission bell-housing. Disconnect the drive-shaft of your F-150 and the hose for your truck's hydraulic slave cylinder.

    • 3Remove the transmission from your F-150. Using a metric socket set, undo the transmission cross-member and bolts, which will allow you to remove the transmission from the truck. You should have plenty of room to work underneath your F-150, as these are tall trucks. In some cases, especially if your truck is lowered, consider using a lift or a jack to raise your truck off the ground for easy access to all components.
    • 4Remove the pressure plate and the worn clutch disk from the transmission.
    • 5Inspect the flywheel. If the clutch flywheel shows significant amounts of wear or is damaged in any way, you should replace it. Reusing a damaged flywheel can cause your new clutch to fail.
    Install the New Clutch
    • 6Install your new clutch disk and pressure plate. You'll need to use the clutch alignment tool, which should come as part of your clutch kit. If your clutch kit doesn't include this tool, you can buy it at an auto partsicon1.png store or any Ford dealership.
    • 7Replace the transmission back into your F-150. Remember to reconnect the transmission cross-member and all bolts.
    • 8Reconnect all interior parts--including the starter, drive-shaft and the hose for the hydraulic slave cylinder. Don't forget to bleed the slave cylinder when you attach the hose.
    • 9Reconnect the exterior parts, which includes the exhaust pipe and the gearshift inside the cab.
    • 10Drive your F-150 slowly in a controlled environment. This will ensure that the new clutch is installed properly and is in good working condition

My 1989 ford f-150 rwd will go in reverse but will not go forward. I took it to someone and they said it was my clutch. but others are telling me its the synchronizer or transmission. when i put it in...

What do you mean it "kinda budge" when you hold the gas down all let off the clutch? To get better answers ask better questions ...When you put it in drive, you mean put it in first gear? Does the clutch slip when you take off or give it gas while you are driving? Will the transmission shift through all the forward gears?

The transmission will not operate in reverse or

hey, im not a professional but ive dealt with crappy a4ld's for about two years. just from what youve said it sounds to me like youre pump may have gone. it happened on my first one. if you remove the bellhousing it is directly behind it. there are 6 or so bolts. a new one can be purchased at cobra transmissions, however if the pump seems intact it could be a million other things. if i were you and you have some know how, buy a stick shift ranger and swap it out. its really not hard. if you have any questions email me at good luck

I have a 2001 ford f250 powerstroke diesel was driving and transmision started to slip drove about 3 miles and now wont move forward at all but reverse works fine

Some of the Ford transmissions actually have an aluminum gear which will go out somewhere around 150 to 200 thousand miles. OR it could be really low on transmission fluid.

Manual transmission won't shift into reverse

Your reverse gear is worn down, unfortunately, you will have to get your reverse gear replaced, if the forward gears are working properly. if not, a new transmission (or rebuilt) will be necessary.

Transmission malfunction error

You will prob have to take it to a ford dealer and have them reset the trans comp. Sometimes the trans comp is set with a specific vin or serial num for the tranny and will need to be reset to read the new one.
