Tranny/rear end problem?

I have a 92 ford F-150 w/ 170K on it and a 5.0L V8 and electronic OD tranny. I have noticed that lately when coming to a stop the engine will bog down for some reason and die. I was wondering if this could possibly be a rear end or tranny problem. I hope not, as I just got the truck a couple months ago. Would appreciate any thoughts on the matter.

Re: Tranny/rear end problem?

sounds like the torque converter clutch could be the problem, when coming to a stop put it in first gear manually, that cancels out the converters clutch.

Do you think it would be an expensive fix? Possibly new torque converter or what?

i'm pretty sure you have to replace the whole valve body or least a solenoid pack thats in the tranny, part is expensive but its not a horrible job, can be done with the trans in the truck.

Re: Tranny/rear end problem?

I am actually leaning towards a dead power steer load sensor, or leaking diaphram in the brake booster.

Re: Tranny/rear end problem?

Is there a good way to narrow the problem down, or possibly eliminate the leaking diaphragm and power steer load sensor?

frown Re: Tranny/rear end problem?

It seems like when I roll up to a stop nice and easy, more often than not its ok, but when I come to somewhat of a quick stop, that when it bogs down and tries to die. Any further thoughts?

Re: Tranny/rear end problem?

It sounds like the transmission is out of adjustment and therefore not downshifting properly. Try downshifting it manually, as 390wagon recommended.

Re: Tranny/rear end problem?

right, but I don't want to have to do that forever. I would like to be able to fix it. IT also has a little problem with reverse. Sometimes when you shift into reverse, You have to wait a little before it actually has the power to reverse. IT could be only when the engine is cold and I'm backing out of the garage in the morning but not sure.

Re: Tranny/rear end problem?

Your transmission is fried. AODs are famous for going out in such a fashion.
The loss of first gear downshift is among the first signs. When you start losing reverse (eventually, it won't go at all), it's time to look for a new transmission.

(and make sure the throttle valve cable is adjusted properly, this time)
