Customer Question
real easy and idles perfect...
I have a 1995 ford bronco. 302, 5.0, e40d trans. It starts real easy and idles perfect. I put it in any gear and iy stalls out every time. it started doing this when i was at a stop light and when it turned green, i gave the gas pretty hard. I heard like a air bubble lose its air. It was medium sound. I then slowed down and the truck wanted to stall but i gave it gas and kept going. I then had to stop at a stop sign and it stalled out. It started right up but when i put it in gear, it stalled out. Its been doing that everytime since. Iv replaced a few sensors like, egr valve, iac, checked the vacuum lines, cleaned the mass air flow, and i put a new torque converter. No codes on the dtc. Its driving me nuts trying to get it running again. What do you guys think it is?

does it kinda feel like a manual transmission with the clutch let out when you put into gear?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It feels like normal when put into gear. It just jerks the whole truck and it stalls out.

It idles really good. No engine light on and no codes are displayed on code reader. The brakes feel fine.
Ford Mechanic: tims auto repair, mechanic replied 1 year ago

ok.

i would think that sense you did hear a hissing noise,,you first need to check all vacuum hoses/lines..but.

Ford Mechanic: tims auto repair, mechanic replied 1 year ago

from the way you explain,the problem may be the torqe converter ,,it may be staying locked up.this is why it dies when you put it into gear,,the converter may have no slippage

thanks

there isnt anything you can do with the converter to un lock it,,you will just need to replace it

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Ford Mechanic: tims auto repair, mechanic replied 1 year ago

the converter isnt likely to be new,it is likely to be rebuilt

Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

Overfill the transmission by 2 quarts, start it and see if it still stalls in gear. If it does not then pull the pan and check the filter. It probably has fallen out of the pump or has a large crack in it.

We did put more transmission fluid. It was still stalling out. Tomorrow i will drain it out and i will check the filter. Thanks. I will let you know how it goes.
Ford Mechanic: Kenny Z., Ford Senior Master Tech replied 1 year ago

Ok sounds good. You have to put a full 2 quarts to get it above the pump inlet, assuming it is full.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok kenny, the transmission fluid we over filled didn't do anything different. We then drained it and took a look at the filter. It was fine and in place. We put it back together and filled it with transmission fluid. The bronco started fine like usual and we let it idle for a few minutes. It sounded good. I put it into reverse and it almost stayed on but it stalled out. I started it up again and put it into drive. It stalled out right away. Tried it again in drive and it sputtered and i gave it gas and it took off. I went around the block a few times but i couldnt stop because it felt like it would stall out. When i got to my house, i stopped and it stalled out. I tried again but it stalled in gear. I put it in neutral with it on and got some momentum going foward and then put it in gear and it took off again. It changed gears like normal but came to a stop it stalled out. Anything you can say what the problem is?
Ford Mechanic: Kenny Z., Ford Senior Master Tech replied 1 year ago

Its going to be a stuck valve in the front pump, either a converter regulator valve or converter clutch control valve.

It could be the converter itself but that is very rare.

Was hoping you would get lucky and find the filter cracked or fallen out or somebody changed the filter and did not get the original filter o-ring out of the pump resulting in double o-ring in the pump. Seen that several times also. Usually overfilling by 2 quarts rules all those possibilities out because the high fluid level covers up the leak.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Is either of those valves complicated to replace? And do i replace both or start with one and then check it to see if it works?
Ford Mechanic: Kenny Z., Ford Senior Master Tech replied 1 year ago

Yes they are both difficult, the trans has to be removed, the front pump removed and disassembled. Should be performed by an experienced transmission technician. Once apart it should be no problem seeing which one is sticking. Not sure if parts available still for this trans. Click link below for an exploded view of the pump assembly.
