Only things is to have the proper tv kickdown cable, lokar makes one for good price and if you don't have proper shift linkage, lokar also makes what you need for that, just be sure the kick down cable is adjusted properly or you'll burn it up.

1988 ford van 6 cyl, is it a c6 transmission?

Hello tbone.
There were only two transmissions available in the E150 in 1988.
If your van is a 3 speed it is a c6.
But if an overdrive it is an AOD 4 speed.
Hope this helps you out.

If your overdrive light is flashing and the transmission is not shifting properly, you most likely have diagnostic codes stored in the tranmission control module. These codes relate to a specific sensor/solenoid/actuator and can help in diagnosing your problem. You will need a scan tool to read these codes. You should also check your transmission fluid level to see if it is at recommended level (engine at normal operating temp). The fluid should be red in color, if it is very dark or brown/black in color and has a burnt smell to it, your transmission has internal damage and will need to overhauled.
A qualified transmission shop (Aamco, Lee Miles, Gibralter, etc.) would be your best bet.

Hope this helps.
