Question about 1994 Ford Explorer Limited

1 Answer

I have a '94 Explorer auto trans, 100000 miles. I am replacing the transmission for the 4th time. They fly wheel would turn to get the torque converter out of the old one. Will turn with no trans in, but when I put the new trans in, it refuses to turn. Any ideas? This is new for us and we can't figure it out. The new trans has been check several time to make sure it is the right one. Everything lines up.

When I bolt the 2.4L to the automatic transmission the fly wheel will not turn

You must make sure that your torque converter is fully seated into your front pump or you will break your pump. You should feel three clunks as you work the converter into the pump and it should sit well inside of the bell housing when it is fully seated. Your best bet is to unbolt the trans and hope you haven't already cracked the pump by tightening up the motor. Make sure the converter is all the way in, and then bolt up the engine a little at a time evenly all of the way around.

Transmission engages but does not drive and makes a whineing noise when in park

Toyota 4 Runner has either auto transmission or manual transmission. If it is auto trans, it could be due to the following reasons:
1.Wrong grading and classification of transmission oil. (ATF Dexron II).
2. Clogged transmission filter. (Clean or replace)
3. Worn out clutch friction discs and pressure plates. (replace)
4. Broken fly wheel and/or torque converter. (replace)
5. Check transmission control knobs and switches for if they are at their actual position where they are supposed to be.

I am putting a 99 ford explorer tranny in a 98 explorer sport with the 4.0 sohc engine. the bolts match perfect and the torque converter from the 99 tranny lines up perfect with the fly wheel. when I go to...

The torque converter is not all the way in the transmission. Pull the transmission back out(unfortunately) and you will need to shake and wiggle while lightly pushing the torque converter into the transmission. Once it goes over the splines for the pump, you will know and the space between it and the transmission housing will be minimal.

1984 transmission wines in all gears 5 spd trans am 305 engine. How can i get the wine to go away?

If this vehicle is an automatic ....the whinning your hearing is the bearing on the oil pump in the torque converter. Time for a new transmission.
If its a stick the noise may be the throw out bearing of the clutch. Time for a new clutch.
If it is a stick and your replacing the clutch have the pilot bearing and input shaft (of transmission) bearing replaced, and if the fly wheel doesn't have any meat on it replace it.
