#26 of 608 1996 F250 4x4 transmission and speedometer trouble
Dec 28, 2006 (2:01 pm)
I have a 1996 F250 4x4 with an E4OD transmission. Recently, the speedometer stopped working and the OD light started to blink. According to posts that a found at several Ford forums, this usually occurs when the ABS speed sensor fails. Even though the ABS light didn't come on, I replaced the ABS speed sensor (located on the differential). This hasn't fixed the problem. Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this problem? The transmission was recently rebuilt (less than 11k miles) and the torque converter was replaced at that time. I have checked all the fuses (all ok), and scanning with an OBD II scanner has not turned up any codes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looking at buying a 1989 F250 4x4 - 302 AOD. Tranny seems to work fine, but has a slight whine that starts in 3rd gear, but almost entirely disappears in 4th. Were these transmissions known for any kind of whine, and is there anything else I should look for???

I'm having the exact same problem with my 2006 F-150 and can't get it to happen for the dealer when I take it in for service. I have tried driving it differently to see if I can make it repeat without success. However, I am noticing that the frequency of occurrence is increasing. The problem is strange especially since the truck has less than 17,000 miles. If I get any results with my dealer I'll post back.

#33 of 608 Ford F-Series: Transmission Filter Replacement
Feb 04, 2007 (10:06 am)
I am in the middle of replacing the ATF filter/fluid on my 2004 FX4. This is the first fluid filter change for the tryck. I've done this many times with my old vehicle. But, this time I ran into something new. When I pulled the pan off there was a circular/spherical yellowish piece of plastic with a small O-ring around it laying in the bottom of the pan. Does anyone have any clue what this thing is? I've looked and looked but can't for the life of me find where it would have come from. Is it part of the original Ford filter? Can someone help me out here?
#34 of 608 2003 250 Transmission anomolies
Feb 07, 2007 (9:26 am)
My 2003 F-250 6.o Diesel 5 speed automatic pulls a 30 ft, 8000 lb trailer beautifully except in Arkansas. No kidding! When we get to a stretch of road that has regular intervals of bumps the truck seems to develop a certain harmonic rocking motion which is followed by a sudden and severe surging of the transmission. It is enough to cause a sore neck and great stress. The transmission checks out as ok at the dealership. Any ideas?
#35 of 608 '05 F150 delay in Overdrive(O.D.) shift when cold?
Feb 20, 2007 (11:52 am)
05 F150 FX4, Anyone experience this when cold(32 degrees or colder)have not had vehicle in warmer conditions yet), the tranny takes 1.2 miles to shift into over drive? Scenario, pull out of commuter lot onto highway with 15% grade, keep RPM's around 2200, and it takes over a mile or 1.2-1.4 miles to shift into O.D. I have also tried on a level highway surface with same results. I normally cruise at around 65mph(1800 RPM's)to 70 mph. I have hit 75mph, and it shifted. However, when I backed it down to 65 the idle shot back up to 2200 RPM's? What gives?
