Video showing how to install a new solenoid on a 1995 Ford F 150 Flare side v8 engine automatic transmission

I have a 1995 Ford F 150 Flare side 8 cylinders dual gas tanks. It was cranking and running fine, but then all of a sudden it wouldn't crank at all, we used the screwdriver test and it cranked, so we bought a new solenoid and installed it . Only now the lights and stereo will come on, but I dont think we have it wired back right, and we didn't take a picture of where all the wires go. Also someone before us installed an Alpine stereo in the truck, so I'm sure some of those wires go to the stereo, but we don't even know where the starter is located. So as you can see we are not mechanics. LOL

Take the carburetors apart and either rebuild them or clean them thoroughly.

I have a Ford F 150 2007 v8 it needs a automatic transmission will a 2005 Ford F 150 transmission be compatible

I wouldn't be installing a used trans,
if that is why your asking

Rebuild yours

No reason to need a trans on a 7 to 8 year old vehicle

I would guess you never change the fluid every 2 to 3 years

Most Ford Transmissions have known problems, brand new,
& they are well know by the shops that rebuild them

So get it rebuilt & do all the updates or suffer the same fate
every 70 to 100,000 miles

You would have to ask a trans shop or have a dealer run some
number off the unit, to answer that

If you see different wiring, etc, then,no,unless it can be switched
over to the 2005 unit.

Is the other trans from the same motor & same type vehicle

These things are all computer controlled,you can't just assume
you can mix & match from one year to the next

1995 t-bird v8. Starter will not crank, clicking noise coming from possible relay behind right headlamp. Battery is good and lights are bright no dimming when key is turned

The Ford V-8 they use in both Crown Vic and T-Bird are good for losing the solenoid to the starter. Replace that first before looking for a new starter.

Will the six cylinder auto work behind the V8? We are talking ED.

yes a transmission should bolt up to the v8 as long as it's stays a small block and not a big block , i'm sure the tranny bolt pattern will bolt on a small block or a v6 /but the v6 transmission wont last long on a v8 :) gl on your project..
