This upgrade kit specifically addresses the pressure control issues that causes the broken band, along with a slew of other issues as well. The one company that has always stood alone from the rest is GotTransmissions. I'll see what the servos look like tomorrow. I'll find out more in the next couple days. It was almost too easy to install. Since 1995 there have been many valve body, plate or solenoid changes. Scott Mine in my ranger seems to shutter i guess.
Kick-down valve may be stuck or spring missing. This wear can be found on a hydraulic test bench or with the Wet Air Test in Figure 6. When I drove it home I noticed a little shutter when it shifted. Inspect the center support sleeve, sealing rings and direct drum sleeve for cracks. I still have a fluid level check to do and repair a couple broken off bolts at the trans crossmember. It was like the clutches were completely gone! I have a thread on home made tools. The strut appears to be magnetic so I may be able with a magnetic pickup to let off some slack on the adjustment side without having the band strut servo side falling out of position.
I'm past the point of return now anyway. What I'm not sure of is, can the servo pistons be removed without the band struts falling off. This one was the hardest to remove. There's somewhere around 45,000 since the last work was done it. I have had the truck for less than a week and have experienced no real slippage or hard shifting but I have seen the postings all over the net about the 5r55e transmission and various problems with blown valve body gaskets, bad servo, speed sensors and bore hole issues. I have a delay shift into forward and reverse. There is an easy and inexpensive way to check your solenoids to see if they are bad.
If it sticks, the coast clutch will not apply. The Reverse Servo when installed correctly needs to be seated against a pin. Although is the most affordable company I have ever done business with, it is not the price that really draws me to them, it is the quality, and that is the most important paradigm. Besides the plug and retainer issues, bore wear, as illustrated in the product announcements in this catalog and indicated by the arrows in Figure 4, add to the complaints. The was released in 1995 in the 2. Check out our new website layout! They are committed to providing the most up to date transmissions and good used transmissions with low mileage.
Unfortunately it snowed last night so I'm up in the air about what I can get done tomorrow. I decided to check all the fluid levels - shifted through the gears - switched to 4W high - switched to 4W low - no indicator light. Towing over the maximum recommended max load or staying into the throttle hard going up a steep hill on a hot day will cause the transmission to overheat. Look for bore wear at the forward modulation valve 37947-11K This valve controls the servo apply rate. It has the 2-3 flare issue. I hope you continue to produce these kits in the future. Chances are that your reverse band broke, which would require transmission removal and dis-assembly.
Thanks in advance to all that respond. The valve body applies fluid to push the servo against the band. I dropped the pan down and had a look, filthy fluid as I expected, and a few chunks of metal. Backing off the anchor strut band adjustment a bit will help get the servo cover back in. I had an issue with the original product which was most likely my fault.
We have completely redesigned the website to give it a more modern appeal. Because this transmission was widely used the changes of you running across a damaged one is pretty high. This L pin falls out of position easily. The truck belongs to a friend and he plans on keeping it for a long time. I lost overdrive completely 2 weeks ago.
The exposed o-ring cross sections are under very little force, around 2-3 pounds. The transmission has never worked so good. To illustrate the problem, this picture shows the floor pan with the transmission mount removed and the trans lowered to where the drive shaft is resting at the crossmember. If I could find a cheap fix I could get him by for a while. Unfortunately, the thread showing the homemade one won't show the pictures for some reason. It seems like the shaft is made of 2 different materials? Still good info for sure but what if anything else has been corrected or improved since then? If the engine stalls forward and reverse, look for blown gaskets, a worn pressure regulator bore which you can replace with and then pump or converter issues.
