Install the pan and than add oil. Once you are on the work bench you can remove the three bolts that hold the separator gasket on. Let the truck warm up and cycle the gears before you drive! Go ahead and put the new separator plate on and install the 3 bolts. On the right is the apply lever end, on the left the adjusting bolt end. It was the first 5-speed electronically controlled transmission in an American vehicle. What this modification does for you, is give you an automatic with all of the advantages of a manual. The 5R55S, minus the SelectShift feature, was used in models of the Ford Mustang from 2005 until 2010.
The transmission has no 3 rd or 4 th gear: If the 2 — 3 shift valve spring is missing, or someone has installed it wrong, you will lose 3 rd and 4 th gear. Bordeaux Automatic Transmission's first product was the C3 3-speed automatic transmission for the. Next reinstall the manual detent return spring and make sure ur valve is installed correctly: Now you should be ready to plug the wires back in on the solenoids. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. C5 — The C5 is essentially a C4, but with a lock-up clutch in the torque converter to improve highway fuel economy. This will result in an internal leak that will cause a drop in the transmission line pressure.
This results in no 4th in a 4R or no 2nd and 5th in the 5R unit. The A4ld has a 2. This transmission is almost identical to the C-4 except only for a few minor differences. Mostly specific difference between 5R55W wide shift and 5R55S synchronic shift is a different overdrive planet gear ratio. All variants are fundamentally similar to each other in design but differ in things such as specialized controls, gear ratios, or other elements based on the needs of the specific application the transmission is intended for. Make very sure that you are keeping all parts clean and installing clean bolts. Below is a picture of the wires attached: In this photo you can see the gold bolt which holds a bracket on.
The final appearance of this transmission was in the 1989. In newer versions, plugs are anodized and cannot be altered. I'll see about doing a photo post of the process, or if someone wants to save me the time and effort. Here is an of a C-3. There was a huge chunk of old gasket stuck in one of the galleries of my transmission. You will want to torque to 71 inch pounds for the first trip around, and then up to 97 I did 95 on the second round.
The two major versions of this new transmission were the 4R44E and 4R55E. March 2015 The Ford C3 transmission and its descendants are a family of light-duty longitudinal built by the. The reading on a properly working solenoid should be around 20 — 30 ohms. Loss of certain gears can occur due to issues in at least two other circuits. The facility opened in 1973 and was shortly followed by an expansion, the Bordeaux Transaxle Plant, in 1976 to focus on automatic transmissions for front-wheel drive Fords. The second one is the intermediate band. At this point you should be able to see where the gasket is blown out like mine below.
The transmissions are fundamentally similar in design, varying only in the durability of key components based on the type of duty they were to be used for. The 5R55E featured more precise computer controls necessary to accommodate the additional forward gear and introduced with a sophisticated friction-to-friction shift ability. The facility opened in 1973 and was shortly followed by an expansion, the Bordeaux Transaxle Plant, in 1976 to focus on automatic transmissions for front-wheel drive Fords. The 2003 Thunderbird switched to the 5R55S and featured the option of Ford's SelectShift, which allowed drivers to mimic shifting like a manual transmission without a clutch. Below are pictures of how and where to install it.
I would just recommend reusing the old gasket. Here is the photo showing the torque pattern but it will show you where all 23 bolts plus the one for the filter are. Below is the torque pattern: Now you can reinstall the reverse servo and cover. Since 1995 there have been many valve body, plate or solenoid changes. This L pin falls out of position easily. The lock-up mechanism is designed to engage at various predetermined speeds of the converter resulting in improved driveline efficiency and fuel economy.
It covers everything from parts identification, exploded views, home specs, wiring harness locations, routing, electrical diagrams, internal planetary components, how to disassemble a transmission, how to rebuild the individual components, torque specs, valve body identification, extension housing overviews and much, much more. The 5R55E, though mechanically similar to the 4-speed 4R55E, was a new breed of electronically controlled automatic transmission with an additional forward gear. Loss of solenoid oil due to end plug leakage can cause no Reverse, and loss or 3rd or 4th and can be repaired with. If the bushing needs to be replaced, you need to make sure the replacement bushing will fit in the center of the bellhousing. That is located mid way into the transmission.
