#229 of 606 1995 Ford F250 E40D Transmission Problems
Aug 04, 2008 (2:12 pm)
I have a 1995 Ford F250 Super Duty with a E40D transmission. Last week I was pulling my 32ft trailer up a mountain pass when the transmission went into a down shift mode untill all I had was engine RPM/throttle when you hit the gas. I wasn't pushing it. I was doing about 50MPH up the highway and I had my overdrive turned off at the time. Needless to say it cost me $1000 cash to have my trailer and truck towed back to my house which was about 110 miles away. I went to check out my truck today and I do have reverse but I have no forward gears to move the truck, just engine RPM/Throttle. Any ideas would be great as yes I know that this is a complicated transmission. Thanks in adavance for all your help.

#234 of 606 2000 F-350 4x4 Superduty Automatic Transmission problem
Aug 26, 2008 (4:12 pm)
Help! Transmission just recently started to show these problems: occasionally when starting the truck and putting transmission into drive there's nothing there (it's like it is in Neutral), 2nd is the same. The trick to getting 2nd & Drive working and moving forward is to put truck into 1st gear and drive slowly forward and then shift into 2nd then into Drive to engage transmission. This method has worked everytime regardless of temperature, duration of how long the truck had been running or shut down, etc. Now there is a new problem: the method of putting truck into 1st gear and then to Drive is no longer working. 1st gear seems to be slipping (or what I believe to be slipping) and doesn't engage. If I gas it at this point and go to 3000 rpm and then back off, it will slowly engage into 1st and then again I can shift into 2nd and then Drive. Reverse has always worked fine. Any ideas?

Not sure how long it's been doing that but you are lucky you have been able to do that more than 10 miles. Unless it's low on Oil the tranny is probably shot. Have to check Dwayne here in Denver to see what shipping is up too and if the price has changed much, but a Rebuild with new Torgue Converter and shipping is around 2600 to 2800 depending on where you are at. 2 main things you need to pull it yourself is a good long Ext for the top bolts of the tranny and a tranny jack, with the way these new ones are my ATV jack works better than the regular tranny jack, for me anyways it does.
#236 of 606 Truck will not come out of park

Replaced starter that was bad. Now will crank fine but will not go into gear. I have tried disconnecting the negative cable to battery and somebody also told me that if the brake lights did not work it may be the switch but they work fine. It will just not come out of park. HELP !!! Ford F250 XLT 4WD 5.4L

Here's the easy way. Just call Ford in the morning and tell them what it is doing, I was trying to find the part you need but for the love of god I can not think of it. If the Parts person doesn't know just ask the Service Department. If they won't tell you the part you need email back and I will find it for you. I would look more for it now but it's 11PM and I just got done working on the GF's car and a little tired, lol.
