Pump Assembly · Screws out of torque specifications · Tighten screws to specifications. Better grade clutches and bands, better converters with improved lock-up clutches and brazed fins stock converters were known for clutch failures, which takes out the entire trans , welded planetary cages, shift kits, and the ability to upgrade a non 4. It seems to be having trouble shifting into Drive when it's driven for the first time each day. The C-3's were said to be offered in 1983 and 1984 in the Rangers and from 1974 - 1987 in other Ford Products. The torque converter from a C-4 will fit a C-5 so long as the spline count and shaft diameters are the same.
Thanks for your quick response! It is similar in design to the 4R44E except that it has an increased maximum torque capacity of 550 lbs. By checking the bellhousing first you can avoid repeated front seal blowout. C-5's can be built just as strong as their C-4 counterparts, because they both use the same internal parts gear train, clutches, bands, servos, etc. If that is low,top it up and find the leak. Still confused why it works when it's warm and not when it's cold. Forward Clutch Assembly · Burnt, damaged, leaking check ball and cylinder; leaking piston seal rings · Carry out air pressure check.
Stumbled across this forum and thought maybe someone here could help. If you are having problems with the transmission in your Ranger, such as clunky shifting or hesitation, check the fluid level first - it is amazing how many drivers pay thousands of dollars for transmission work when a half quart of transmission fluid would have fixed the problem. The 4R55E is no exception. As far as I know, the radio does not cut out at all and none of the lights blink. Brian Donnelly I would run a computer scan real quick Brain.
It a real pain to do without a lift. These four and five-speed transmissions are used in four cylinder and V-6 applications primarily the Ranger and Explorer. Or, if he's turning a corner, all of a sudden it will lose power and he'll end up creeping around the corner until it re-engages. Thanks for your quick response! Do you think he should try dropping the pan to see if there's any metal? I flushed and drained the fluid and put a new filter and fluid in and it was fine after that. Tucson-girl, forward and reverse functions use different clutches that are controlled by various valves in the valve body. The idea is that the trans can lose all electronics and still be able to limp home. I tried reading through the threads to see if I could find a similar issue, but nothing seemed to match and a lot of your answers are Greek to me! The A4ld has a 2.
Well, I googled transmission range sensor and it sounds like a relatively easy part to replace. Here is an of a C-3. Can someone tell us if we are looking at a rebuild of the transmission or if there are other things we can check or have checked first? This automobile is still hard downshifting in low gear. Electronic tunes also modify the way the transmission shifts. Because of this the bore that the bushing fits into doesn't need to be in the center of the bellhousing, and in many cases it isn't. Your could have a bad bellhousing. We bought it in 2002 when it had 48,000 miles on it.
When the weather was hot 85+ it didn't seem to have a problem. Not sure if that would make a difference though. He backs out of the garage fine with no problems, then when he shifts into Drive it seems to take awhile 30-90 seconds? Perhaps someone could give me a simplified answer so I can at least take the truck to a shop and not feel like I'm totally in the dark. There are modifications and upgrades available to this transmission. He is very mechanically inclined installed our waterheater, fixed my oven, fixed our pool filter, etc. Adjust transmission shift cable as necessary. I would bet he could handle it.
Do you think he should try dropping the pan to see if there's any metal? If you're coming to a stop light behind traffic, it seems kind of dangerous because the downshift could kick out of gear and cause an accident. If the transmission fluid level in your Ranger is low, you need to add transmission fluid through the dipstick tube. This will remove the anodized finish and may result in further main control or transmission damage. It would just help if there was a bit of an explanation. Other things you want to have replaced are: forward one-way clutch always , overdrive drum stamped tin, replace if out of round or heat damaged , pump Ford only, rebuilds are prone to failure , and the converter get the better converter with the improved lock-up clutch and brazed fins. The ability to produce five forward gears is by improved software control.
Seven Common Problems With The Ford 4R55E Transmission Posted by on Friday, March 15th, 2013 The 4R55E is a four speed automatic transmission made by the Ford Corporation and was used in vehicles made between 1995 and 2001. Therefore no electronic problem will not cause a no forward movement issue. Second listing under Shift Linkage. The basics of forward movement is forward clutch applied and low one way clutch holding. The single solenoid originally on the 1985-1987 transmission only controls the torque converter lockup function. The 5R55E introduced adaptive shift control and sophisticated friction to friction shift ability.
Well, I googled transmission range sensor and it sounds like a relatively easy part to replace. The manual valve controls the reverse band and direct clutch through check balls and valves. If so, how does one go about doing that? Carry out line pressure and stall speed tests. . However, a slight amount of contact is acceptable. It also had a computer controlled torque converter lock-up.
