#1700 of 2180 problem with 1995 F-150 hole on bottem of concentric slave cylindar
Nov 25, 2005 (8:14 pm)
Hi, i have a 1995 ford f-150 truck A/T, V-8, 5.0L engine
I was under my truck and at the bottom of the transmission is a hole about the size of a half dollar. i think it used to have some sort of rubber plug/cap covering it, but it is no longer there. I can see inside the hole what appears to be the flywheel, if that helps you visualize where the hole is.
the truck runs fine and has transmission fluid in it. I think that cap/plug that is missing is not or was not holding fluid/oil.
What is that hole for, and most importantly what is that cap called or what do i tell the auto part store i need so i can replace it.
thanks very much. you can also email me at parkerduplexesaustin.rr.com
#1701 of 2180 Loud Noises
Nov 26, 2005 (5:16 am)
I have a 2004 F-150 and recently it started to make a grinding sound at intermittent times. It stops with a "clunk" as I come to a halt. I have taken it to a dealer and of course when they drove it, the noise did not occur. It seems to be eminating from the transmission area. Anyone with a similar problem?

Not sure what the title refers to, but what you're describing sounds like the drain at the bottom of the bellhousing. The bellhousing is a casting that connects the transmission to the rear of the engine and contains the torque converter (or flywheel and clutch in a manual transmission). If the transmission, torque converter, or rear crankshaft seal leak, then the fluid can escape through that hole, rather than build up inside.

It's not something you need to worry too much about, but if you want to replace it I'd drop by the Parts Dept. at your local Ford dealer. Just describe it as a fitting that goes at the bottom of the bellhousing. I doubt that it'll be more than a couple of bucks.

#1707 of 2180 Loud transmission noise
Nov 27, 2005 (6:42 am)
I have2004 F150 4X4 and had the same - loud grinding sound occur while traveling. When I stopped - there was a shifting sound and the noise stopped. The sound was very loud..I cannot imagine this being a minor problem. The truck trans. already vibrates/stutters a lot when accelerating. Any solutions to this. I am stationed in Germany and there are no dealers here. I will need good info to provide the mechanic. EW

The noise only occurs now and then but normally happens when I accelerate fast (normally on the onramp to a freeway) and sounds like I have just run something over that has hit the engine (a hard sounding clank). Sometimes I hear a fluttering sound in the engine above 60mph either with or without the clank noise. New noises are always disheartning especially after I have taken great care of my truck. The truck has 82000 miles.
Does anyone have an idea as to the problem(s)?
