    It is the right trans , i think i might have hooked up the transfer case shift lever in a different gear then when i took it apart. the trans was definitely in neutral when hooked back up. i will recheck the mounts.

    three of the x member bolts were loose and the flex plate nuts loose on the torque converter .the clunking noise is gone. I styill have not driven the bronco and have only gone through the gears once. when i tried to shut the engine off in neutral it would not turn off. as i tried to put into park it made a winding down type of noise then it turned off . The transfer case shift lever is not hooked up to the linkage right now, would this cause these things to happen?
    thanks Steve

    YOUR ENGINE IDLING TOO HIGH OR DIESELING DUE TO CARBON BUILT UP GLOWS ON VALVES AND PISTON HEAD CAUSING IGNITION TO LEFT OVER FUEL IN CYLINDERS OR BY LEAKING FUEL INJECTORS.THIS WILL KEEP ENGINE RUNNING WHEN YOU TURN IT OFF. BUY A CAN OF SEA FOAM IT WILLCLEAN FUEL INJECTORS AND CLEAN CARBON OUT OF ENGINE OR YOUR HEADS HAS TO BE REMOVED TO CLEAN CARBON OFF VALVE HEADS USING A ELECTRIC DRILL WITH WIRE BRUSH WHEEL ATTACHMENT.

    the trans was in nuetral, but battery was connected. what about the transfer case what position should the shift lever be in? I wanted to shut the engine off when it was clunking it was in neutral but would not shut off, i had to put it in park and it made a winding down type noise when putting it in park, then it shut off. The truck has not been driven and barely rtan since installing the trans

Heard a clunk while driving diesel ford excursion now when drive and reverse don't work....any ideas what problem is?


If it is a four wheel drive check your tail shaft or drive line by securing the vehicles front wheels jack up the rear tires and in park try to rotate the drive line if you can hear the transmission sound like it is going into gear the transfer case could be damaged! If not a four wheel drive pull the transmission dipstick and look to see if the fluid is dark red or metallic grayish color if so then you're clutch disks inside the tyranny have been worn out and it needs to be rebuilt!

Is the back up switch connected to the shifting linkage of the automatic transmission on my 1988 ford bronco II


If you have the C5 trans, here is the info:

C5 Transmission
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Remove the downshift linkage rod from the transmission downshift lever.
  4. Apply rust penetrant to the outer lever attaching nut to prevent breaking the inner lever shaft. Remove the transmission downshift outer lever attaching nut and lever.
  5. Remove the two neutral start switch retaining bolts.
  6. Disconnect the multiple wire connector.
  7. Remove the neutral start switch from the transmission.

To install:

  1. Install the neutral start switch on the transmission. Install the two retaining bolts.
  2. Adjust the neutral safety switch following the above procedure.
  3. Install the outer downshift lever and retaining nut, and tighten the nut. Install the downshift linkage rod with the retaining clips.
  4. Connect the wire multiple connector. Check the operation of the switch. The engine should start only with the transmission selector lever in N or P.

If it is the:
C3 And A4ld Transmissions
It's on the transmission....


// // 0) preLoad.src = ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_ImageArray[i]; } ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.lastIndex = 35; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.populateLog = theForm.elements['ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_PopulateLog']; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.treeViewID = 'ctl00$cphLeft$chRepairTreeNav$tvTOC'; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.name = 'ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data'; //]]> c17hydro_179.gif

What you have is an E4OD transmission and will work with all Ford small block engines (300, 302, 351) in F150,F250, F350 and full size Broncos from 1983-1993.

Looking for a diagram for a ford e4od transmission Im getting ready to do a rebuilt on my ford f250 1990 truck


Rebuilding an automatic transmission requires more than looking at a diagram. Check out faxonautoliterature. They have the original Ford service manual for your truck and it will have all the information that you will need to rebuild your trans properly. Hope this helps.

Clunk-clunk? Sounds like the flywheel broke. Maybe (if it's an automatic) the torque convertor came unbolted from the flywheel. I hope that I could help you. Best wishes.

1990 Ford Bronco makes noise when changing gears?


sounds like you have a universal joint issue.(the joints that attach the drive shaft at the transmission and the rear axle.) You are right in not driving it as the drive shaft could fall out.However if this noise just started to occur you should be able to drive it a short distance to a mechanic and save the tow cost. I personally have driven (although carefully) for several weeks before i was able to change a universal joint. There are also some other possibilities of things it could be so I would suggest you take it to a trusted pro to have it diagnosed.
hope this helps!
