Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my nameis Scott, can you tell me about the slipping, what happens, what model and year?
Ok I see, some things we see when this happens is the overdrive band gets burnt, or the OD servo clip will break and fall into the valve body and jam a valve. Is the fluid full and not burnt smelling? Are you repairing this yourself? Have you checked for trouble codes?
Are you there??
If it is just the clip you can remove the valve body, retrieve the broken pieces, install a new clip and re engage the band with the servo, this must be done since removal of the servo will disengage the band.
Yes a overdrive problem. Any thing that runs the overdrive can be the cause, band, gears, hydraulic, ect, dropping the pan and valve body to inspect the clip is the first step, if its ok, than the transmission needs to come out and be overhauled.
The clip is the easiest fix if it is broken. If its not, then replacement or overhaul would be next.
Does this answer your question?
The super servo don't know much about it since we only use OEM parts, but the kit for 200 dollars is real cheap.
You couldn't even come close to touching Ford parts for 200 dollars.
