reverse..air so I pulled the pan and valve body and put air..leaked…

Customer Question
I rebuilt my 4r100 and...
I rebuilt my 4r100 and the frist time I put it back it had first and reverse nothing else. Well I had forgot to pressure check it with air so I pulled the pan and valve body and put air and one of the bolt with a hole leaked. If yout had it up side down come back from the front pass the one bolt by its self it was the one on the left.
So pulled it out and took it apart did some research and it is an oil passage they said!! Then looked over the valve body the frist and second valve body was stuck.
Got it back together and now I get second but when the oil is really cold and now I have trouble with reverse I have to give it a lot of rpm to get it to back or shift to second. Frist is fine now it has codes of p0781 and p0782 so I ohm the solenoid pack and the pressure one is to be @ 3 to 5 ohms it is @ 9 maybe that is my problem? Well let me know what u think I really need the help! Thanks [email protected]

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
