The Ford 5R110 transmission has been known to strip the splines out on the intermediate shaft in even stock applications. With the Ford 5R110 transmission being such a long unit, over time the torsional flexing distorts the case, and the center support can sag and become displaced. It complicates the repair process, and increases the cost of its implementation. Some trucks will have a plastic dummy plug installed in place of a switch. This gearbox is used in cars with the engine capacity up to 6 liters. It will also minimize shifts and maximize the available torque. Problems with the valve body are typical for this transmission.
We recommend upgrading the input shaft for any customer towing or racing their truck. It is also a well know fact that the intermediate shaft on these will fracture and sheer completely causing catastrophic failure within the unit. In this application, it is only used as a plug with remaining 4 holes cast over. Ford's 5R110 Torqshift transmission's fluid lines and a larger stock transmission oil cooler help keep the transmission fluid temp in the normal even during extremly heavy duty applications. The center support on a transmission is a critical component that could make the difference between success or failure. The adaptive control shift function monitors the performance over its lifetime and adjusts shift times in real time to assure consistency and to compensate for wear.
We recommend either just picking up five plugs so that you are guaranteed to have the quantity you need or dropping the pan first and looking prior to ordering. The 5R110 transmission relies on the center support to also apply fluid feed to the direct and forward clutches. The strengthened design is one of the main peculiarities of this transmission. In addition, transmission repair specialists often have to perform a complex procedure of cleaning oil supply channels in the valve body. The center support acts as a stabilizer, just as our lower back and abdominal muscles support us. It had been produced for 10 years before being replaced by the fully automatic 6 speed transmission.
Today many companies still sell these altered solenoids to try to correct a direct clutch issue. These units are built to the most stringent tolerances by one expert technician from beginning to end, and each unit is signed by the technician when finished. The aeromet input shaft is much stronger than the Vascomax material. This shaft is manufactured using 300m steel that has been heat treated for increased strength and reliability. Control units, sensors and cables of this transmission are extremely sensitive to frequent changes of temperature, and they get out of order quite early. Both are good options but the best option for you depends on the transmission problem, the year, make and model of vehicle, the mileage and the vehicle value. Buying a used 5R110W transmission may save you money.
This transmission turned out to be quite popular. With the center support now being corrected, we move your attention to the most problematic area of the 5R110, the direct clutch. The 5 forward ratios are: 3. We have alleviated this with our new no walk center support. Used transmissions, since there is no way to know how many miles are on them, may fail at any time. In the 5R110 the direct clutch pack has been the topic of so many discussions. R emanufactured transmissions carry a longer, 3 year, nationwide warranty with additional upgrades while a rebuilt unit generally carries up to a 1 or 2 year warranty and upgrades vary from shop to shop.
A Master Kit with four Alto G3 Power Packs and Kolene steels are included for more holding power. This transmission was mainly intended for all-wheel drive pick-ups and powerful off-road vehicles produced by Ford. The direct clutch pack is constantly subjected to conditions that can prematurely wear. This transmission was later replaced with the much larger and more robust 6R140 when the 6. We will let you know if we do.
The Torqshift also utilizes an optional 4th gear, which is 1. The Torqshift design, in fact, has a total of six forward gears ratios, however only 5 are advertised. Unlike our competition, we do not leave optional upgraded parts out when we build our units. There are over 10 different variations of the 5R110W so we have over 10 different part numbers! In the beginning we modified the direct clutch solenoid. New to the 5R110 is the transmissions TorqShift adpative shift function, which monitors the TorqShift's performance over its lifetime, and adjusts the 5R110 transmissions shift pressures in real time to ensure consistent shift feel for the driver and compensate for wear.
A sheer break typically occurs with excessive power or the rapid loading and unloading of the transmission. In the SunCoast Category 4 5R110 transmission rebuild kit we upgrade the intermediate shaft to a precision machined billet steel shaft. Even with the use of special equipment, it may be quite problematic to determine the source of the problem on the first try. Product Description Ford Rebuilt 5R110W Signature Series Transmission The Revmax 5R110W Signature Series performance automatic transmission. Fits the following Ford applications: 2004-2008 E-350 Superduty — 5 Spd 6. What are you looking for? As for the Intermediate, we recommend this for customers who will be doing boosted launches or towing heavy.
