Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Sorry, I knew it was under the pan and I have TORX sockets.
Background info -- My '04 EB Explorer has the dreaded transmission problems of delayed shifting, hard shifts, etc.
I read online that the problem is related to the solenoid pack and it's relatively easy to replace. I can't find the Ford part number for a "Solenoid Pack" as my Ford factory service manuals don't list anything by that name.
Again, I know it's under the pan but I'm not sure exactly what it looks like, that why I asked how to replace it. I am also going to change the shift solenoid if you think that's a good idea. Thanks for your help.
Hello, I am John, a Ford dealer technician.
I hope I can help solve your problem quickly and accurately.
Click here for solonoid pack instructions. You are correct this can cause the issues you describe. The shift solonoids are all part of the solonoid pack. I believe the basic part number for the solonoid pack is 7g383. Your local ford dealer can get the rest from that number.
