ford e4od transmission.

im having a little trouble with my 96 f250. truck has a 460 with 98k miles. the problem im having is it wont shift automatically i have to go first second drive then press the over drive. if i put it in drive it will run first gear but wont shift. if i put it in drive with od on it will just barely creep forward no matter the amount of throttle. ive been told numerous things that could be wrong but i want to see if it is something more simple before i get a complete rebuild. thanks in advance.

Re: ford e4od transmission.

Since you can manually shift it, and you didn't indicate that it's slipping, I'm wondering if your electronic pressure control solenoid is faulty, but I'm not sure how to test it. Not even sure if it's accessible without opening the tranny.

thats what im thinking also because it will shift fine manually but the problem is my exhaust is welded on so i have to drop the tranny to get to the solenoid

Re: ford e4od transmission.

Is there room for a band clamp if you cut the pipe?

i would have to put a sleeve or flare the pipe. i may hve fixed my problem. i was wiggling some wires and put a diff battery in it now it shifts in drive but i just took it around my field so i couldnt see if 3rd or over drive was shifting.

it all works good but if i turn over drive off or what ever default start up its in its like it hits neutral. other than tha it seems to shift good cruising or if i kick it down it doesnt shift hard or delay. im going to take it to the tranny shop though tues to see what codes they can pull.
