    Thank you! Is this a big job? Can I drop the pan and replace myself? Do they say a valve replacement kit? Sorry for all the questions.

    Hoping you can help me out. I have a 2000 f250 7.3 4r100 trans. I have an issue with shifting from 2nd to 3rd. When you first start the truck and the trans is cold, it shifts fine. Once the engine and trans get up to normal operating temp, the truck hangs in 2nd and wont shift into 3rd. I have to play with the gas pedal or even borderline redline the engine in order to get it to shift into 3rd. Sometimes doing both of those things wont shift it into 3rd. Any advice? thanks in advance and much appreciate all your efforts on this forum.


    Best..... Jay

    Trans shop found a part number on it. His book which he shared with me listed it as only used in 03 and 04.


    I called Ford and they could not confirm that, he only knew the part was active thru 2010. Also showed it was a discontinued part.


    They (Tousley ) found a dealer that has a few (4), so I am getting something in the mail I hope.

    The parts guy at Tousely has not been able to find a number on it. I will continue looking.


    Thanks for the parts link.

    If you have any data, ?

    Forward clutch orifice, next to last section in the removal guide link below. Small - maybe a little over 1" dia stamped metal piece. Said to fall out when removing solenoid body.

    Looks like this was not there or I lost it.

    And the (2)small tubes shown as 307-456 are not there either ? (These can be seen when clicking onto photo of trans assembly lube holding orifice in place for reassembly)

    Is it needed in my model year (2005)? Any idea on Ford part number or a source.

    Thanks for your swift response(s).

    Looking like it might be up to a week before I can get back to working on the truck.

    Thanks again for your direction

    Got it apart, found 2 or 3 tablespoons of metal debris in pan - as much as maybe 1/4" long and pencil lead in diameter.

    Put back together with the 2 solenoids TP filter and 8 .5 quarts fluid.

    Does no engage till about 2000 - 2200 RPMS, did not take out of driveway.

    Also getting P0720 code now.

    Any suggestions.

    Thanks

    Thanks, I will replace solenoids, external filter, fluid.

    Have internal filter here also if contaminated.

    Fluid was last changed less then 10k miles.

    I have a chart showing those pressures.

    Thank you very much.
