1990 bronco code 62

I recently took my Bronco to the dealer to do a diagnostic and it pulled several codes all are now fixed except for a code 62 which I was told was "excessive convertor slip". Should I worry about this or not? I have a 1990 F/S Bronco 4x4 351 w/AOD or EOD (i've seen it both ways auto w/OD) VERY new to the Ford scene born and raised on the bowtie (sorry)Any help or advise would be helpful. OH--Trans has been rebuilt about 2yrs ago from previous owner (no paperwork) shifts perfect and no slipping.

Re: 1990 bronco code 62

Your transmission is the E4OD. The AOD is a manual overdrive...as opposed to the electronic overdrive on the E4OD.

Yes, code 62 is excessive converter slippage or a torque converter clutch error. That's usually a sign that it's time to replace the torque converter. It requires removing the transmission and transfer case which isn't the easiest of jobs on the Bronco because of their weight but it's not that bad. If you don't feel like doing the job yourself I would recommend taking it to a reputable tranny shop in your area and let them do the work for you. Labor will be the biggest cost of the job.

Re: 1990 bronco code 62

There should be no problem driving it for awhile as is and it's not something you need to fix before you drive it again. It may effect your off-the-line power as well as your fuel economy but other than that there shouldn't be any adverse affects for now. Just keep in mind that it should be taken care of when you have the time/money to get it done.

If in doubt, call a tranny shop in your area and talk to them for a couple of minutes. They're usually glad to offer suggestions over the phone for absolutely no charge.
