HI,

Ok, I read your last Q&A.

I assume you still need the torque sequence and specs correct?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
How could you guess? Yes you are correct. The information I was given does not match my car at all.

HI,

Ok, because they stick removal and installation directions together, I am uploading the full set. Just skip down to the installation which gives every torque spec and sequence for you.

It looks like the other expert gave for a 42 trans and yours is a 6F50 transmission

Take a look at them and if you have a question or need some clarification, let me know

This information looks much better. Thank You. Now I just hope to be able to get the correct sensor on the output side. O'Reilly seems to have a hard time with this as well.

HI,

You are welcome. They may need to order from Ford. The speed sensors are integrated into the solenoid body, part 7Z369 and not sold or replaced separately

What Customers are Saying:

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
