Well I bought this truck over a year ago and I knew the trani wouldnt last long. Its a 92 F150 4x4 with a 302. I made my offer to the dealer and told him I knew it had trani issues. He accepted the offer and I got a decent deal on it considering it has a rebuilt jasper motor.

Anyhow I helped a fellow arfcommer move today and when we got to his new place an hour and half away I noticed going from drive to reverse and visa versa it didnt want to engage right away. So I go home and get off at my exit to turn right and it wont budge! It just revved but I was able to barely turn into the vacant gas station right off of the exit.

I got it parked and noticed lots of trani fluid leaking out of the bellhousing. I put what fluid I had left in it and drive it down the road to where I work to park it till I came up with a game plan. I guess Im going to try to drive it to a friends not far away after I put more fluid in it. Then I'll pull it and have it rebuilt.

I know these transmissions were notorius for problems when they first came out. There are fixes for those problems now but I dont think its ever been serviced.

Oh well. Its a good truck though.

Is it an E4OD? I say get it to a tranny shop and get it rebuilt. Or find a new tranny. You are going to pay out the ass if you want a new/reman tranny, they aint cheap.

I cant remember what kind of trani it is. All I remember reading about them is they had some issues when they first came out. No way Im paying someone to pull it and install after its rebuilt.
