Band adjustment will affect shift quality but not timing.A throttle pressure adjustment may be needed to correct this problem.The cable coming from transmission is located on the passenger side and is pulled by the throttle linkage.there is a locking tap that will release the cable housing and allow it to slide back and fourth.You will need to move it towards the the front of engine to decrease throttle pressure and make shifts earlier.If this has no effect you have a throttle valve stuck in the valve body inside tranmission and this indicates that thereis damage since this tranmission is not prone to sticking valves.Good luck!

No reverse after i park my 1962 ford automatic


Fluid level and a dirty filter are the first things to check, then a band adjustment is next on the list. as the pan needs to come off to change the filter adjst the bands at the same time. the tea levels in the bottom of the oil pan will tell you in there are more serious issues inside.

2002 Ford Explorer 5R55W transmission had intermediate band and servo piston replaced. Shifted OK for 1-2 months, then developed 2-3 shift flare. Servo bores then rebushed. Helped, but still has...


Band adjustment is very sensitive on these units, I set both adjustments at one turn. This is a 4 speed trans that has been converted to a 5 speed by turning on the od unit ( 1-2 shift ) in first gear.the 2-3 shift is busy because the od band is coming off causing the od unit to transfer back to 1:1 and the intermediate band is coming on . I have found that if the overdrive band is to loose it will release to fast causing a flare on the 2-3 shift bot not really affecting the 4-5 (overdrive) shift. So break both band adjustments loose and tighten the adjustment screw down and back off 1 turn the tighten jam nuts. Also the fluid level should be checked with the transmission warm ( 100 f , not hot, not cold) and the fluid should stream out of the check tube. Transgo makes a really nice vb kit that i use that will help these symptoms.

Band adjustments for a 5r55e


You'll never be able to get your hand in between the floor pan and trans,so forget it.

You bring the band down tight and the back off 1 1/2 turns,only when rebuilding or reassembling it. If the band wears to the point you need adjustment,your in big trouble. Also,if you go the wrong way with the screw and the band falls off,your really in a serious crisis and may have to pull trans.

Transmission overhauled, however, band overadjusted


Bands are not adjustable. Why do you think it's a band issue? The band only comes on during manual second gear, not second gear while in drive. It sounds like a check ball was inadvertently left out of the valve body during reassembly.

Try changing the automatic transmission fluid and the transmission filter. There are also bands on the transmission that can be adjusted. You will need to buy the service manual at your local auto parts store to get the exact specifications for adjusting the bands.

Jeep grand cherokee revs for to high before changing gear


Message:
My 2002 Dakota has been somewhat confused about shifting as well. It showed a code P1762. I dropped the pan to install a new fluid filter and fluid-(use only ATF+3 or ATF+4). Since the pan was off I decided to adjust the bands. The front band controls the 2nd gear cluster. The rear band controls the 3rd gear cluster and reverse. For a 2-3 shift, the transmission shifts back to 1st gear with the front band while the rear band engages 3rd gear. If the front band does not release the 2nd gear clutches before the third gear clutches engage, the transmission binds, which shortens the life of the transmission clutches. If the front band releases too early in the shift, the engine will overspeed (sounds and feels like a slip) during the 2-3 shift.
The front band adjusting screw is on the driver's side above the shift linkage. The rear band is inside the fluid pan near the filter.
1. Loosen band adjusting screw locknut. Then back locknut off 3-5 turns. Be sure adjusting screw turns freely in case. Apply lubricant to screw
threads if necessary. The front band adjuster is on the outside of the transmission and the locknut requires a 3/4" wrench.

2. Using Inch Pound Torque Wrench C-3380-A, a 3-in. extension and appropriate Torx� socket (T-40), tighten adjusting screw to 72 in-lb. CAUTION: If Adapter C-3705 (from SPX Miller) is needed to reach the adjusting screw, tighten the screw to only 47-50 in. lbs. torque.

3. Back off adjusting screw the number of turns listed below for your transmission.

4. Hold adjusting screw in place and tighten lock-nut to:

41 N�m (30 ft. lbs.) for the front band
34 N�m (25 ft. lbs.) for the rear band
The adjustment screw inside the case is a square head bolt. You will need a 1/4 square head socket to fit your torque wrench.

I just replaced the solenoid with the recommended transducer and all is fine now. The transducer cost me about $50 at a nearby dealership.
