5R55W - 5R55E
New guy here, fantastic amount of information here. I have a 03 Explorer with 150k on a 5R55W. It has the 2-3 flare issue. The plan was to replace it with a rebuild but if I can diagnose the fault I might just try a repair. So far, the pan is off and it's clean aside from some clutch...
I've always been irked that the transmission on Ford products defaults to Overdrive being activated. Since it's not a good idea to let your transmission be hunting back and forth between direct and overdrive while you drive around town, I try and remember to shut it off. However, I usually...

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...
The A4LD Rebuild Diary:
Ok, if you go back far enough you will see where I was attempting some time ago to figure out a "near bullet proof" A4LD rebuild. Time, and other things got in my way, but now with 205K on my stock 92 A4LD, I figured it was time to get serious about rebuilding it. Then I hit on an idea.... why...

Well finally, eh? we are going to put this puppy back together. We've rebuilt parts fit parts, and now it's time to put the guts back in and button it up. The transmission case is mounted to the engine stand once again. I'll start by putting in the reverse drum.. over my new race, and...

This is a current work in progress, so be patient if you think this is incomplete â€“ I agree it is at this point. First Iâ€™ll start off with a little bit of history of why I started this project and why it could be useful and interesting to others. I have a â€™92 Eddie Bauer that I have...

Hey guys, A little less than a year ago I converted the 1991 Ex to Manual, ditching the old A4LD. The U join-t had spit a cap doing about 70 mph, and the jolt of the trunnion hitting the driveshaft cracked the back of the A4LD case/ 4x4 housing exstension. At this point I swapped in an M5OD...

I have recently noticed on the board that a lot of people are having a hard time figuring out driveshaft and u-joint problems. The symptoms of driveshaft and u-joint failure/weakness are sometimes hard to find and takes a well expierenced person to know what to look for. I wanted to type up a...
