Hi, looking for a second...
Hi, looking for a second opinion. I have a 2014 Ford F150 2wd, 5.0 liter with a transmission 6r80 and showing code p0770 shift solenoid E malfunction permanent. it started with some jolts from 3rd to 4th once in a while. lately it gets stuck in the 3rd gear only and clunks when put in reverse or Drive. After it sits a while it runs normally again but not for long so it acts up on and off but often. truck has 67,000 mi.q: what is the a way to physically check if the harness is corroded? or can one find shorts other ways? it's intermittentq: how hard is it to change the shift solenoid E electrical harness? after reading online it seems this is a common problem

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

The most common cause for this code is build up of fine metal particles on the solenoid leadframe connector. This is a known concern. Ford has released a foam barrier that covers the leadframe to solenoid connections. To service, the valve body and leadframe are removed. I recommend replacing the leadframe connector assembly as there have been many issue with the integrated OSS and TSS sensors. The solenoid connectors are cleaned, leadframe connector replaced and foam barrier installed. You might want to replace the SSE also while you are in there. It will more than likely pass all testing since the concern is intermittent. See attachments for details. Part number for the foam barrier is FL3Z-14B167-A. This is an involved repair. Valve body remove and install is difficult, even for an experienced transmission tech.

since it does it intermittently, should I first try a trans filter change with the 4-5 qt replenished? not a flush
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
how many qt does it take to replenish if dropping the pan only?

You can try, Usually the fine metal sticks to the solenoid connectors because the solenoids have magnetic properties.

Here is the drain/fill procedure so you know what your getting into....

thx.1. what would be a decent price for a good shop to apply the foam barrier and have the ss replaced?
2. is there a decent chance that if i change filter and fluid the problem would be fixed? i understand this is an opinion only so I won't hold you liable no worries

In my opinion I don't think changing the fluid is going to take care of the issue.

Estimate for valve body r/r, replacing solenoid and foam barrier around $700
