Up shifting CLUNK on a shaft drive motorcycle is caused by all the drive line slop. Don't tap the shifter with your foot when you shift. Try putting gentle pressure on the lever with your foot, then pull the clutch and shift the gear. This technique should eliminate the CLUNK.

1997 f150 4x4 5.4 e4od transmission shifts hard after driving on highway 3 miles if i shut off key restart it will work ok for another 3 miles


Usually bad "solenoid pack" inside automatic trans. Although, you usually also get a slight hesitation followed by a "clunk" when switching from forward to reverse. Also possibly computer programming error. If it has "adaptive" shifting (i.e. "computer learns your driving pattern and shifts accordingly"), you can have Ford change the programming to a standard shift pattern. (It's a wonderful difference in transmission performance).

Transmission shifts between overdrive and third at


When the trans is cold it will shift almost normal as of now. If you keep driving it it will eventually slip when its cold. This is caused by worn out clutch plates
Your trans needs to be overhauled with a clutch rebuild kit

Transmission sometimes shifts hard into next gear.


I would check the transmission and engine mounts but also it may be time for a transmission fluid change. It has a service interval just like oil. 50000 miles

Error code po113


the error P0113 still comes up even after a new sensor was installed and the transmission shifts very hard. Found a break in one of the wires to the sensor. Soldered it back to gether. Found that the engine has a limit to the rpm when rev-ing in neutral.
Thanks
