94 explorer transmission modulator question

I need to replace the modulator valve on my transmission for
my 94 EB 4x4 Explorer.

Can anyone share their experience with this. I have read the
articles in the glue webpages which were kind of negative.

I have 165k and the modulator needs to be replaced for sure and I just
wanted to be informed before I tackled this project.

Thanks,

Sam in Raleigh,N.C.

As I recall from what I read the main things are..

- it's hard to get to
- there is a pin/pintle/rod inside it that you want to make sure you
don't let fall out as you take it out. I'm not sure if it will come
out as you take the mod out or if it sticks in the bore of the tranny
but just be careful that you are ready to catch anything that comes
loose.

I had mine done at a garage so I'm not speaking from experience but
other then being hard to get to (you'll have to remove the heat shield
assuming someone didn't already remove it and throw it out like my
shop did. I made them pay for a new one.) and it's still pretty tight
looking between the tranny and the exhaust system.

I also have not done it personally but someone here posted how they did it
perhaps a couple of years ago. They removed the seats to reveal an access
panel. Remove the panel and the modulator is easily accessible. As Ashton
pointed out there is a pin in the middle (so I've read) that you must be
very careful not to lose or damage.

I thought I had it bookmarked but I can't seem to find the post right now.
Perhaps a Google search will reveal it.

Re: 94 explorer transmission modulator question

Thanks to everyone for posting replies. I am still trying to gather
information that will help me to be precise as I can when I perform
the modulator replacement this week or next.
Please if anyone has any input on this with experience or strong ideas
please post a reply.

I really appreciate the groups help over the years.

Well i found the easiest way to replace the modulator instead of
dropping
the cats. it took me 45 mins to do the whole job..
all you have to do is,


- Remove both pasenger and driver seats
- Remove Center console (if you have it)
- Pull back the carpet so that the Transmission tunnel (hump) in the
floor
is completely exposed
- You will then see a silver access panel in the center of the "hump"
- remove the access cover, and look down and to the right, there it is
- Remove the Heatshield (10mm bolt)
- Disconnect the vacuum line
- Remove the modulator bracket (also 10mm bolt)
- Then the modulator just pulls out of the tranny
****** DONT LOSE THE SILVER PIN IN THE CENTER OF THE MODULATOR!!
REPLACEMENTS DO NOT INCLUDE THIS AND IT IS CRUCIAL TO TRANNY
OPERATION******
- After transferring the pin to the new mod. simply push it into the
tranny until it clicks in place, then install the bracket, heat
shield,
access panel, carpet and seats , and you are all set.. much easier
than
dropping the exhaust system (ive done it that way too)



Have fun.
