    How to: Repair Manual for 5R55W, 5R55S, and 5R55N Transmissions

    So I came across this today. Really great info with full color pictures. It's the full repair Manual. Also, it has all the OBD2 Codes at the end. I figured others on here would like to have this and I should share the file. I wasn't sure if I should post it under a different forum but I figured...

    ABS autobleed scan tool.

    Oh ok gotcha. I was just following the forscan directions. I thought you were supposed to bleed the ABS after you bled the brakes and that's why I thought that there was no need to bleed again after because the ABS bleed purged the air. My bad.

    ABS autobleed scan tool.

    Nope you dont have to bleed brakes after, at least it doesn't say anything about that. I'm not sure where the air goes but you definitely notice a difference. I've done it while doing a regular brake bleed and also have done it just running the ABS bleed procedure by itself. Sorry about the...

    ABS autobleed scan tool.

    I have the OBDlink MX+ that connects through BT to your phone and with Forscan you can do the ABS bleed. At least for my 02 you don't even have to get out of the driver's seat. It just tells you to press down and hold and release the brake pedal at certain times and you can hear and feel the ABS...

    Hey guys i got an 04 sporttrac nightmare

    Black smoke is usually due to too much fuel being burned and not enough air or in other words a really rich fuel condition. Probably what caused your cat to become clogged up. Could be due to bad o2 sensor or bad PCM or faulty fuel injector. But it's usually something that is causing there to be...

    Hey guys i got an 04 sporttrac nightmare

    Is the regulator built into the fuel pump module on that model? Sounds like you've already done a bunch of work trying to figure this out. What about your MAF sensor? One time I had that go out and the car would die sometimes on me. One time I used to have a cold air intake on the car and the...

    Hey guys i got an 04 sporttrac nightmare

    Do you have a check engine light? If so, do you have access to a code reader. It could also be your crankshaft sensor has gone out as well

    Hey guys i got an 04 sporttrac nightmare

    It could possibly be a fuel delivery problem. Failing fuel pump, clogged fuel filter or injectors. I would check there if it starts up but then dies like that. You can rent a pressure gauge from auto parts store and check fuel pressure too

    Stripped/Loose? Transmission Mount Bolts

    I thought of this but don’t think I can get a screw driver into. The stud goes up into the transmission mount itself. I was looking at the new one I have as a replacement and it goes into the mount where you can’t access the other end and is supposed to stay stationary. Here is a picture of the...

    Stripped/Loose? Transmission Mount Bolts

    So I recently changed my engine mounts on my Ex and being a genius didn’t do the transmission mount while I was at it and low and behold it needs changed just as badly and is contributing to the vibration/driving issues. I went to change it today and the two studs/bolts that stick down from the...

    Engine Jacking Position

    I don’t have a transmission jack is the problem and it’s not really in the budget right now. I was going to use a regular jack or a bottle jack with a couple blocks of wood. You have done the mounts on a 3rd gen? Do I need to end up dropping the front differential down to get access to the...

    Any idea what this bolt goes to?

    hey guys, sorry about the delayed response it’s been a crazy busy week and I kept meaning to get on here with an update but kept spacing it out. So as far as I can tell this rusted part of bolt/stud somehow managed to kick itself up onto my crossmember from somewhere else. The gas tank strap...

    Any idea what this bolt goes to?

    So I was underneath the car just giving a look over on everything while I was down there replacing u joint and right on the frame where the front gas tank strap is I found this extremely rusted broken off bolt head. It’s a weird head to the bolt...it’s completely round and almost looks like a...

    Need Motor Mount Help Badly

    Yeah I couldn’t find any good videos of the procedure being done on the V8 4x4 that doesn’t involve the engine actually being out. I did however get some detailed print outs from 2car pros of how to do it and it’s actually not horrible. A bit of a pain in the ass but I’m glad I talked to them...

What is the most likely reason for this? From what I can guess the fuel pressure regulator (which is...
