    Codes 0171 and 0174

    Getting codes 0171 and 0174 on my 1999 Ford Explorer with 4.0 V6 OHV with 136k miles. I cannot detect that the engine is running bad or any different than it has been. This appears to be a cold weather related issue as this same thing happened last fall and intermittently throughout the...

    How to: 5R55E Valve Body Rebuild Diary

    Just completed 5R55E valve body update Wanted to thank everyone on this forum for the info on these valve body updates. I would not have had the courage to try these mods without the guidance and pics provided here. My 1999 Explorer with 134K miles was having typical transmissions issues...

    How to: 5R55E Valve Body Rebuild Diary

    Reverse Servo Shaft End Play I am following the diary and rebuilding the Valve body on my 5R55E. While installing the new D-ring seals on the reverse servo I noticed some movement of the servo shaft in the piston. Not much (maybe 1/8") the shaft moves up and down in the piston. I am...

    valve body separator gaskets for 5R55E

    Thank you for the part number on the separator plate. I am wondering if there is anything else I should address while putting in the separator plate? The main problem with my transmission is the slow shift to reverse and "flaring" on the shift to 2nd and 3rd. I'm thinking specifically of the...

    valve body separator gaskets for 5R55E

    Would you happen to have a ford part number for the separator plate with the gaskets bonded to it? The Ford parts guy i talked with did not have a clue what i was talking about.

    valve body separator gaskets for 5R55E

    Updated: Went to my Ford dealer to get the bonded gaskets. The parts guy looked them up and claimed there is no such thing as bonded gaskets...or at least Ford does not have them. All he had listed was paper gaskets.

    valve body separator gaskets for 5R55E

    I have been searching for valve body separator gaskets for my 99 Ford Explorer with the 5R55E transmission. I have found several for sale but none of them appear to be the "bonded type". They look just to be the paper gasket. The part numbers I have been searching are F5TZ-7C155-A and...

    temperature gauge sending unit

    Haven't had a chance to research the problem any further yet, but I do know that when I grounded the "one wire" sensor connector (on the front of the engine by the thermostat on my 4.0 V-6) the temp gauge maxed out. And when I took the ground wire off, the gauge went back to zero.

    temperature gauge sending unit

    Ok, thanks budwich. The sensor that I changed out (the one at the front of the engine-by the thermostat housing) did have the one wire. I verified that it is the one that controls the gauge by grounding out the wire in the connector like you suggested and it did indeed send the gauge all the...

    temperature gauge sending unit

    My temperature gauge is not working so yesterday I replaced a temperature sending unit located out by the thermostat housing. Of course this did not start the gauge working. So I searched the forum some more last night and found out there are two different coolant temperature sending units on...

    coolant temperature sensor

    Just replaced the one on my 1999 explorer with the 4.0 v6 OHV motor. Got the sensor out by removing the hose off of the thermostat housing which then gave me enough clearance to use an 18mm deepwell socket with a rachet and extension. This did not solve my problem however, which was that the...

    Has anybody ever used the bolt-on helper springs to deal with the rear end sag?
