#421 of 607 Re: 2005 F150 Tranny, PCM, Throttle Actuator, or Throttle Position Sensor? [transpo1]
Mar 02, 2010 (6:04 am)
After I went and paid $120 for a throttle pos. sensor which didn't work I talked to the service manager at Ford down here in NC, and I told him what happened. He immediately said it was internal tranny failure, I didn't want to believe it but went and found a tranny at a salvage yard w/13000 miles on it. Swapped them out and guess what, for once someone at Ford was right. Not sure what went inside but was definitely the tranny. I must warn anyone with this model truck, if you ever have to remove the starter, good luck because the top 3rd bolt you can't see or even get to with a socket, thanks Ford engineers...that was the hardest part of the whole job.

While driving at any speed in any gear the transmission seems to go to neutral motor revs up ,it then shifts back into gear. This sometimes happens almost continusily other times very seldom. Fluid and filter have been changed. Any ideas anyone?

Mar 11, 2010 (12:59 pm)
Hi everyone, I am new to the forum but impressed with the community posts.
My issue is:
My 1999 f-150 XL (2x4, 4.2) manual transmission is stuck. When parked and not running I can shift into any and all of the gears.
Once it is running I can't shift into any gear, the stick refuses to engage.
I have tried rocking it back and forth, and I can start the motor in gear with the clutch engaged (only tried reverse) but once running it refuses to shift.
I would prefer to avoid the mechanic if possible and do it myself.
Any suggestions or possible ideas about what it is?

Did the Clutch start slipping before this happen ? If not check the Oil in the Clutch Slave Sleeve Master Res.It should be on the Firewall where the Push Rod comes through. Also look at the bottom where it goes in to see if it's leaking oil or may have came out.

Thanks for the prompt response Cowboy9...
There was no clutch slipping before this began, the vehicle was driven yesterday with absolutely no issues.
I'll post the results of my check in a bit.

OK, so I cant see a leak, and I can't tell if the clutch fluid is at an appropriate level. The reservoir states to 'fill to the step'...however I don't know what the 'step' is. Do they refer to the base level of the container? Is there another indicator in that fluid reservoir?
Regardless, there is some clutch fluid in there.
What is interesting is that if I pump the Clutch then I shift gears briefly. I presume this indicates that there is a leak somewhere and there is insufficient fluid pressure? Does this sound reasonable?

I think cowboy9 got it right, I had the same problem. If you remove the cap, there should be a rubber sleeve under the cap. Pull the cap out and push the closed end (was on the bottom) of the sleeve back into the opening (towards the top), (as fluid leaks out the rubber sleeve takes up the space to maintain pressure on the hydraulic clutch fluid system). If you look in the reservoir (without the sleeve) with a light, you can see the "step", which is actually a line that was molded into the ID of the reservoir, about an inch and a half from the top. If you fill to that line with brake fluid, your clutch should work fine until it leaks out again. Good Luck
