Post # 6 in this thread has the link to the other thread.
Does anyone knoww the exact method to adjust the bands with the transmission on the car? I have some difficulty with my reverse
Post # 1 explains how to adjust the bands. Reverse is not adjustable like the other 2 bands.
Ok thats fine thankx....but what could be the problem with my reverse...when i engage it the reverse is slow to engage and when i back up the engine surge s a little bit. it have less power than supposed
It might be a good idea to start a thread with a list of transmission issues in the transmission section. Follow the advice in post # 22.
This link from Autozone has information on adjusting the bands, and linkages on many Ford transmissions: http://www.autozone.com/az/cds/en_us/0900823d/80/14/ed/23/0900823d8014ed23/repairInfoPages.htm
hey brooklynbay do you think that if i don't got the tools to do the band seting od out i need to know if i can do this with out that tool am going to rebuilding it soon am reading thing here to see what i need to do thank for the info
A torque wrench is recommended for adjusting the bands, and setting the torque on the valve body bolts. Harbor Freight has them, and they are not that expensive. Watch their sales since their prices keep changing.
ya i just buy one like 3 week ago and it was 20 bucks and i got the reblut kit for the transmission and more tool you think i mite need ?
Good post. By the way... when adjusting the intermediate band the cable and lever will be in the way of ANY torque socket wrench. It has to be removed. No ifs, ands, or buts. PB Blaster may be needed for the two nuts. Once that is done there is a plastic bracket through which a plastic arrow fastener protrudes. Be careful with it. I need to add some pictures of my 4R55E to show each adjustment knob.
Then I smelled fuel, saw the fuel leakage at the bottom of the tank, and figured I had bigger things to deal with.
