Hi,
First off will it try to start if you spray some starting fluid, or carb cleaner into it?

Quick question while I have you I've put 2 New transmissions in my Ford and neither of them lasted more than a day because they build to much pressure and pour atf out of the bell housing would you know anything about that
Ford Mechanic: Virtual Wrench, Ford Mechanic replied 3 years ago
Hi,
Did you put a new torque converter in when you replaced the trans?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Yes both times
Ford Mechanic: Virtual Wrench, Ford Mechanic replied 3 years ago
The only thing that i have seen happen is the converter gets a groove worn in the part that goes thru the front pump seal and you have to put a "speedy sleeve" on it.
Anytime i have seen any leaking from too much internal pressure is when it comes out the top of the trans vent tube. Thats the FIRST place and excess pressure would leak so i suspect either the converter shaft is worn or someone is not installing the front pump seal correctly.

Ok thanks
Ford Mechanic: Virtual Wrench, Ford Mechanic replied 3 years ago
You are welcome.
I sure have put a lot of those sleeves on and they work great even if you think the converter shaft looks good!

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.
