Most likely the synchro dog springs are worn or need to be replaced. The synchro dog springs align the shift forks in the center to prevent the shift forks and synchros from ove shifting and actually rubbing against the gears, thereby causing them to wear out prematurely. Often times when the tranny is rebuilt this is something overlooked and the shifter forks premature failing is a result of the worn springs. As the forks tend to rest either slightly forward or slightly back. You can continue replacing the forks every few months or the next time the forks need replacing pop the tranny out and preform some minor surgery, or have a quality tranny mechanic do it.
Ford F150 5 speed tranny M5R2 Actually built by Mazada or toyota and is a light duty transmission used in the f150 and t-bird, and mustangs. From 1992 to current. The M5R2 is a top loader transmission and depending the application depends upon the location of the shifter housing. F150 is a true top loader as compared to the stang, bird or mazada trucks. The shifter is located to the back of the tranny tail housing. Hope this helps.

Nov 29, 2012 (10:22 am)
I have a 2003 F150 4-6 automatic, which my son was driving at first it would not go in drive, after trying a couple of times he got it to go in drive then it would not go over about 30 to 35 mph and did not shift. I was told to change the filter and fluid first, I have done that and it still will not go over 30 to 35 mph and seems to not even try to shift. Anyone have any possible suggestions on what the problem could be.

My transmission worked great unitl I pulled the motor and tranny out to replace seals and gaskets. I also power washed the engine and tranny. I put the engine and tranny back in, double checked all the plugs and grounds. I can put the tranny into reverse, 1st and 2nd it works, but it will not shift on its own. Any ideas out there on what could be wrong?

When the transmission goes, it is designed to go into the lowest gear and stay there. I had the same thing, although it was not the entire transmission. It was a part and wound up costing me $300. I was lucky. You are not going to help it with a fluid change. It may be done for, but hopefully not.

Mine is a 1992 F-150, I have all gears, it just won't shift on its own. What was the part you had to buy?

Probably shift solenoid pack. If any electronic faults, it goes to failsafe

Our F150 is our yard truck. It has lived it's life on the road, and has now been "put out to pasture".
The problems we are facing now is when we shift the truck into any position. PRND21, they all go forward. Surprisingly when you get in nuetral, the truck "smooths out". There is no neutral or reverse, any ideas???
Yes, we checked the transmission fluid.
#601 of 613 F 250 transmission
Dec 30, 2012 (7:42 am)
We just bought a used 1997 F 250 plow truck. Today was our first time using it. We were backing up and I noticed a line of rust colored drips. It appears that a cap of some kind was knocked off and all the transmission fluid ran out. The guy at Napa said there is no cap there. But my husband looked under and definetlynsaw where a metal cap would go. A anyone know if this is true, what it is called? And any other advise.
