Re: 1994 F250 transmission problem - hard shift
I would definitely go the 1.05-1.10vdc and the minimum of the 3.83-4.3vdc & see if the shifting improves before speding the $35-$65 for a new one. Me When I started having problems with the tranny again, I couldn't remember how old that fipl was so, I replaced it as cheap insurance/preventative maint. & kept the previous one as emergency spare in truck toolbox. Your Sears DVOM should tell you it's accuracy specs, or you can look them up online to know what to expect from it, then take some reference voltages to see.
I realize what we're talking about are minimal voltage changes, but, if every thing else is set right, those few 0.xxVDC makes a heck of difference in how firmly & how well at least how my E40D shifts (your mileage/experiences may vary [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img])
'91 F350 CC,7.3NA w/K&N,E40D(rebuilt--way too many times), 2WD,3.55 rear end,new IP,new u-joints & carrier bearing, new rotors, new calipers, new drums & hdware, added Auburn limited slip unit (2/8/05)w/valvoline synth 80-90w, new batt.cables,new window motors,new radiator & hoses, 500K, (new injectors)+ mi (now 678K miles)& still Truck'n. If I can fix it, it ain't broke, I'd rather do it myself.(yes, I add,stanadyne, lucas or power sytems fuel additive in every tank, w/maybe 1-2x year full big bottle dose split between both tanks). New tires & pretty wheels, front end rebuild 3/17/05. Bilsteins added 6/12/05. New motor mounts & valve cover gaskets (9/06.)Future hopes finally fixing my electric door locks & adding remote entry/alarm system.
