    Hello Mark, Newbie here with an engine tranny swap question. Can I bolt a newer 2001 7.3 engine up to an OBS 1997 7.3 which has the E4OD tranny ? Or do I need the 2001 4R100 trany, T-case and complete truck wiring harness with it also? Thanks for your time and info.

    Hey Mark I have a quick question about the 7.3 4r100 with the ebrake on it. I know it has the same tailhousing as the 4x4 , but will it work in a 4x4 truck? It appears the VSS is located on the Ebrake. Thanks for your time.

    Mark, please let me know if you think after 15-20k miles on a new reman 4r100hd transmission in a 2001 f350 dually i should just change the fluid or also change the filter. just called our dealer and he said a new filter was not needed when i ask him to do both. i pull a 10,000 lb camper in the summer so i dont want any more transmission problems. Thank you for your time and advice,

    Battery was disconnected when the upgrades were made. Also cleared the memory again, by disconnecting the battery. It's still flaring. It seems 2-3 shift and 3-5 shift are flaring. Hoping it's just the solenoids (fingers crossed). Which solenoids would you recommend replacing/upgrading? EPC, Coast and Direct?

    Hey Mark, I'm new here at TheDieselStop. Looking for more information on an issue I'm having with my trucks transmission (5R110). What I know so far is that there is flaring 4-5 shifts, which I suspect is the solenoid but I also hear another sound coming from the transmission area. I just recently had APR headstuds, gaskets, IPR, glowplugs, EGR delete, and Oil cooler upgrade done. I'd hate to believe that it's the engine. It sounds like a rattling/vibarating sound through all gears including reverse and park. If I let the truck sit a while and turn it on, that sound is not present in till put it into drive or reverse and move a little it creates the sounds and persists to be there even in park. The sound and slight vibration remains in till I turn it the truck off and let it sit for a while. (note: sounds is there hot/warm or cold). Is there any information you can provide before I start this project?

    I have a question for you. If I drive truck with the tranny stuck in 3 or 4th and manually shift it will this damage it? The truck is located 3 hrs from my house at a garage that had it for 3 weeks and I want to get it out of there. If I drive it back home Id be more confident with the mechanic that would fix it ( if I couldnt figure it out myself)

    Hello Mark
    I am having an unusual issue with my 2009 V10 -auto trans.
    The cruise control will hold the transmission in a lower gear to hold speed downhill. Lately, I've noticed when I tap the brake,the transmission does not upshift. The cruise light goes off. If I turn the cruise off with the button,it shifts up.Any ideas?
    Thanks
