After i changed the...

After i changed the transmission oil sometimes on cold start in drive at idle it sometimes loses drive and when i accelerate by about 500 rpm the box engages again and i have no more problem

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the gaskets? Maybe the hoses?

Did the trans gasket and the ring on the filter. was going ok before i changed oil

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2003 BA

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing yet. i re checked the oil level with ute level and motor off.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Thats all i am chasing at the moment.

hELLO WHY DID YOU CHANGE FLUID IN THE FIRST PLACE?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Because it’s travelled 120000 km pulling close to 2 tonne almost it’s life since 2003
I thought it would be the right thing to do ok.

o​k sorry I hd to ask....sometimes servicing an older transmission can backfire. one never knows. if the filter had been clogged and now the problem fixed you would be feeling great. It has happened to me too. so all you can do is try. if n o improvement noticed after servicing its time to pull the transmission and overhaul. do ck all connections ck for codes nd fuses but if fluid was real nasty then you probably need a transmission

My thoughts are the converter is draining off and when I engage drive it seems like there is not enough oil in the converter to get full pressure until I rev the engine to 2500 rpm on and off then is ok.
Is there a check valve visible when looking at the box with cover off and filter exposed.

can you get a pressure gauge? or find a scanner to see what pressure is? is pump putting out? thats what we need to ck next

yes what is pressure

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.

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.
