    For Sale Attn: A4LD Trans Gurus and Tool Collectors!

    A few years ago I acquired an A4LD pump housing cutter tool from a small town auto shop that went out of business with some other stuff. The tool has sat on a shelf since then because I don't deal with Automatic transmissions as all my Explorers are manuals. So up for sale is a tool to bore for...

    Pulling the A4lD tranny on my 91 explorer.

    Last week I was cursing at 55mph in 4th gear with my explorer. Stopped at a red light and it died in gear. Runs in park and neutral but lurches and dies when thrown into gear. Had it towed to a shop which didn't even look at it for a week so I gave up and had it towed home. I will be pulling the...

    Transmission swap

    I have a 1993 Explorer, 4x4, auto transmission. Today my transmission blew, was wondering whether I should put another a4ld in, or if there was a practical swap that I could do. 250k on the Explorer, I was quoted $1250 (cdn) for rebuilt beefed up a4ld, is ther another trani that I could consider?

    1994 a4ld failure

    Good afternoon guys. I've got a 1994 Explorer XLT who's transmission failed about a month ago. The backstory is it overheated in August and lost a bunch of fluid but ran fine after a top-off until November. In late November a trans cooling line leaked right before the intercooler. I repaired...

    Hi all, I just purchased an a 91 explorer. unfortunately it will not shift into its either 4th or OD gear. Yes, there are other threads on this just saying to replace solenoid but I believe this explorer is stuck in 4x4. Does anyone know if being in 4 wheel limits the transmission to 1-3...

    AL4D blown front seal and no O/D problem

    At the end of last week I noticed that my o/d did not seem to be working. I attributed it to the fact that on the road I was on my speed was varying to much due to traffic. This past Saturday I was heading out to meet some friends to go do some ice fishing and realized that since I had the...

    A4LD governor.

    Would someone give me a description of the function and operation of the governor in the A4LD? My 93 Explorer A4LD doesn't shift when the transmission is cold. (Common problem, I have found.) I recently did a soft rebuild of the transmission during which I replaced the seals, valve body, OD and...

    91 Explorer - Trans Won't Shift

    The other morning I was driving home and went to pass someone, gently pushed the pedal down to get it to kick into passing gear and it did. About 2 seconds later it sounded like it completely slipped out of gears and the RPM's skyrocketed. I immediately let off the gas as soon as i realized...

    Hey all, I have a '94 4X4 with the A4 in it. It has started to give me some sort of transmission issue, and I'm prepping for a new one. I was at a stop light yesterday (following a friend to the mechanic, ironically) and as I started to let it creep forward in drive, it felt like I hit the...

    A4LD issues - Squealing coming from below the EX while in D, but none in N or P.

    Title sums it up really. I recently had my brother swap out the governor, totally fixed the hard 1-2 shift. But recently there's been a squeal that started off faint, but over the past 2 weeks it's gotten quite loud. It's very loud while I've got it in DRIVE, with my foot on the brake (at...
