I can more then likely make you up a PDF and don't mind doing it. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll do my best to help. It will be easier if you can let me know the model and engine size but guessing it's a Ram (1500 - 3500) with a 5.9 and I believe the years for that tranny was the late 90's to about the mid 2000's.
The info is in the factory repair manuals, we do not have them because they are copy protected by Ford. You can buy the factory manuals hereused for a very reasonable price. You will need many special tools as well.
Hi, this is called a shift flare and is usually caused by a pressure problem inside the transmission. Line pressure comes from the internal pump in the transmission.When the pump pressure drops below the minium the problems become noticable. This problem requires the transmission to be dissasembled and rebuilt. I reccomend a quality transmission shop or a used transmission. The internal workings of an automatic transmission can be quite complicated and I dont suggest attempting this yourself. I dont even rebuild automatics myself only manuals. Let you fiance' know that he can pick my brain anytime but not all problems can be taken care of long distance.
Rebuilding automatic transmissions properly requires a lot of time, skill, training and experience to get it right. A beginner will have little success in making a lasting repair. I have known of experienced professionals fail to fix them properly. An exchange transmission would be the best option, although more expensive, as you should get a warranty and will be out of action for only a short time.
The transmission in your vehicle is a 4L30E model,manufactured by General Motors,and used in vehicles from BMW's to Cadillacs,Isuzu's and Honda's.The transmission is BASED on the old Chevette Turbo Hydramatic 180 model.The 4L30E is basically a TH180 with an overdrive unit added on.I rebuild transmissions for a living,and have seen the 4L30E over and over with the same failures,inherent weaknesses,and every transmission model has them,just in different areas.The 4L30E failures are nothing new,so don't despair.Hopefully the trans currently in your truck will be problem free.
