Transmission Problem

1999 e350, 5.4 AT

Because of slightly deformed pan bolt holes I had a leaking pan gasket. I desided to buy a new pan online. I changed the pan, gasket, filter and replaced the fluid I lost. The transmission did sit open for a few days while the pan was being shipped. I received everything, installed the new filter, gasket, pan and filled with appropriate trans fluid. Started the vehicle to move it and nothing happens. When you shift into gear the vehicle does nothing. You don't get the typical sound/movement as if the transmission is shifting into gear.

fluid level appears to be good and I've been told there may be air in the lines....that the pump may need to be primed.

I need some help here.

Thanks, Jeff

Re: Transmission Problem

How much fluid did you put back in? There is a drain on the torque convertors on that year. If it's drained too, it takes about 10 qt.s of fluid.
