Question about 1991 Ford F150

3 Answers

Hi, I have a 1988 27 ft glendale sterling motohome with a 460 engine. The tranny slips going up hill towing a 3500 lb boat and only gets up to 30 mph or so on flat hwy. I took off the boat and the motorhome seemed allot better. Atf smells burned! There is a pretty good sounding rattle coming from the doghouse when under load (ie: when I put the excellerator down somewhat) Is the tranny shot? Thx Craig Langley,Canada

Yeah i would say the tranny is shot. chances are the fluid was old and you burned the gears inside. in the future have an extra tranny cooler installed. this will keep the fluid temp down. hope this helps. rate this please... thanks

Fords have weak and short life trannies anyhow, get a shift kit put in when you have it rebuilt, it'll shift harder but that means the clutches aren't slipping to make it shift smoother and burn out quicker, the manufactures design the trans for smoother shifting to intentially burn the transmission out faster.

Yes I am sorry to say the trans is as we say TOAST, the burnt fluid and slippage is a dead give-away, after you have it overhauled to avoid further burn out insist they use synthetic fluid when they refill the new trans, also have the largest most efficient trans fluid cooler you can fit in the area in front of the radiator, B&M brand make very good coolers, many auto parts stores sell them, but the price on the internet is much lower, shop around, don't pay more than $5.00 a quart for the synthetic fluid either. If you follow these suggestions you will greatly extend the life of yopur new trans.

Transmissions on a Ford F250 with a 460


You more than likely have the E4OD tranny in the truck. These transmissions are very prone to failure and problems. They are very expensive to rebuild and or replace if only using an exchange unit already rebuilt. I have rebuilt many E4OD trannys and would not recomend that particular tranny. Average exchange rate for a rebuilt is anywhere form $ 2800.00 to $3500.00. If you are considering buying this truck look for a manual tranny version instead.

Head bolt torque specs needed for 96 tbird 3.8


Head bolts are torque to yeild so you MUST use new bolts.
Tighten cylinder head retaining bolts in numerical sequence in three steps as follows:
  1. 20 Nm (15 lb-ft).
  1. 40 Nm (30 lb-ft).
  1. 50 Nm (37 lb-ft)
Loosen retaining bolts one at a time two to three revolutions and retighten as follows:

Long bolts:
  • Tighten to 40-50 Nm (30-37 lb-ft).
  • Rotate an additional 175-185 degrees.
  • Go to next bolt in sequence.
Short Bolts:
  • Tighten to 20-30 Nm (15-22 lb-ft).
  • Rotate an additional 175-185 degrees.
  • Go to next bolt in sequence.
Here is a pic of the sequence
