1996 f150 transmission

I just rebuilt the engine in my truck and when i got it all put back together the engine works great but the transmission acts like it doesnt wont to go into drive. Reverse works great but when you put it in drive you can feel the transmission catch but when you hit the gas it doesnt respond. If i sit there and give it gas it will eventually go, what could it be? Btw I had the transmission rebuilt about 50k ago. Oh yeah its an automatic w/ a 302 5.0 engine

Transmission will not shift into reverse

Sounds like the shop didn't do their job right. Call them and take it back if you paid to have it rebuilt. It should not be your problem to solve it. Work should be guaranteed, and if it isn't, you should take matter up in civil court.

My ford F150 won't shift from 2nd to 3rd. Does anyone know what could be the issue?

Usually the transmission needs to be rebuilt in that situation. It's a very common problem if that's the famous automatic overdrive transmsission. AOD I have had three trucks that have done that. It usually starts by shuttering when it shifts and than finally goes out. Sometimes the Lucas transmission treatment gives you a little more time, but it sounds too late for yours. From what I understand (mechanic told me) that when the overdrive goes out, it takes third gear with it. If you drive in hilly areas, that overdrive is shifting in and out all the time as you go up and down hills and wears it out. My Dad had that hapen on his F150 and he replaced his transmission with a junk yard transmission that turned out to have the same problem. I had that transmission replaced with a Jasper rebuilt and it worked great. I think it was $1300 for the rebuilt trans with the old one core trade in. I think when 3rd gear goes out, you can only go about 45mph without over reving the engine. I saw that same problem with a Ford Crown vic with that same transmission and 302 engine that my neighbor had.
Did your third gear just go out all of a sudden or were you getting like a shuttering or kind of a grinding sound when it shifted?

I have a 302 ford engine in a f 150 it sounds fine idling but it loses power bad when you try to go anywhere this motor was just installed it sat for 2or 3 years , was supposed to have been rebuilt it is a...

i would make sure that the fuel filter is in good working order, also on carbuertor engines, they have a accelerator pump built in, could be acting up, or egr valve. i would hook up a code tester to the aldl link, and see if it has stored any problem codes, if so , check them out.

New engine for '92 Camry wagon?

a new engine is $25-35,000 dollars(if Toyota even has them) The rebuilt engines are very good. 3 yrs-unlimited miles on repairs/replace engine. Get a name brand engine like Jasper or Atk or BulletProof or Gopher. These ARE Toyota engines rebuilt(sometime better than original) The transmission has evidently been a great one(mine has 185,000 miles).<p>
You've done great on this car. But to replace engine and transmission; you looking labor and parts:$7-8,000. If you fix it, it will last forever, and you'll know it's good.<p>
Or you could buy a certified used Toyota, and buy an extended warranty.<p>
The only other thing is to buy new-$20-25,000 for a new Camary v/6 ( I don't know if they even make the wagon anymore)<p>
I hope this has helped. Good Luck with whatever you decide.

Transmission neutralizes when taking off in drive.

That's probably why it's lurching. It's try to shift down. The valve body is a reasonable suspect. Was the balve body yorgued? Are the ck balls in the proper circuits? If the valve body has any loose bolts, the gaskets need to be replaced again. Good luc

Ford f150 2001 vibration in tranny od but only on load or when giving just a little throttle"if i give more throttle it acts great or if i turn off od it works great , why?

I had a very similar problem with my f150 lariat, and what solved the problem was: I took it to a mechanic and had the transmission fluid and filter changed.
