Re: HELP!! With tranny

i have no idea what is causing you problems but it definetly needs to be taken to a dealer for service and possibly a rebuild.
did you ever get any codes flashed at you when this thing acts up?
is it an electronic shift trans?
sounds sorta like a stuck valve or shorted selinoid.

Re: HELP!! With tranny

yes there is a linkage on the side of the tranny that is connected to your shift lever.
it also controls when the backup lights come on as far as i know.
does your backup lights come on when the shifter is in reverse ?
if not then there is the problem.

Re: HELP!! With tranny

Re: HELP!! With tranny

It sounds like the linkage is gone, but it could be even more......but without digging into it I would not be able to tell you anything more. Seeing that you have a 99 I would say you have the 5R55E , which is just a bigger A4LD that has been updated as a 5 speed and beefed up a tad.

I would also assume that you have just fallen out of warranty, that is if you have the 3yr/36k. A replacement is around 1900 with a 400 core from Ford. I rebuilt would be a little less. A rebuild would be a little cheaper. Since you have the issues as above I would only assume that there is other issues within the tranny itself that will need to be addressed.

If you do go and get a shop to rebuild it first and foremost, do not let a shop do a soft parts fix only. This being clutches, servos, and bands. This will almost ensure that you will have another repair needed right after the 1-year warranty is out. Other things you want to have replaced are: forward one-way clutch, overdrive drum (stamped tin, replace if out of round or heat damaged), pump (use Ford only, rebuilds are prone to failure), and the converter the one with the improved lock-up clutch and brazed fins.
