SECTION 307-01: Automatic Transaxle/Transmission
2000 F-Super Duty/Excursion/Motorhome Chassis Workshop Manual
Procedure revision date: 01/29/2003
|Silicone Brake Caliper Grease and Dielectric Compound|
NOTE: If the transmission has been disassembled to replace worn or damaged parts, and the valves in the main control valve body stick repeatedly from foreign material, the torque converter must be removed and cleaned by using a suitable torque converter/fluid cooler cleaner.
NOTE: All gasoline vehicles will have new adaptive shift strategies. Whenever the vehicle's battery has been disconnected for any type of service or repair the strategy parameters that are stored in the keep alive memory (KAM) will be lost. The strategy will start to relearn once the battery is reconnected and the vehicle is driven. This is a temporary condition and will return to normal operating condition once the powertrain control module (PCM) relearns all the parameters from the driving conditions. There is no set time frame for this process. If this concern is present during downshifts or converter clutch apply, it is not the fault of the shift strategy and will require diagnosis as outlined in the workshop manual.
The customer needs to be notified that they may experience slightly different upshifts either soft or firm and that this is a temporary condition and will eventually return to normal operating condition.
NOTE: Do not discard the fluid pan gasket unless damaged. This is a reusable gasket.Remove the transmission fluid pan and gasket.
CAUTION: If the seal remains in the pump bore, remove it carefully with a small screwdriver so as not to scratch or damage the aluminum bore.
NOTE: After removal, discard the filter and seal assembly.Remove the filter and seal assembly by carefully pulling and rotating the filter as necessary.
CAUTION: Prevent the front of the valve body separator plate from sagging and displacing the check balls.If the valve body separator plate is not being serviced:
CAUTION: The steel electronic pressure control (EPC) check ball is spring-loaded under the valve body separator plate.
NOTE: If the valve body separator plates are not to be serviced, proceed to installation procedure.Remove the valve body separator plate reinforcement.
CAUTION: Using the incorrect gaskets can cause damage to the transmission.
NOTE: Refer to parts catalog for correct gasket usage.
NOTE: If the valve body separator plate was not removed, proceed to Step 6.
NOTE: Apply a light film of petroleum jelly to the valve body separator plate prior to assembling the new gaskets.Assemble the new gaskets to the valve body separator plate.
NOTE: Apply a small amount of petroleum jelly to each check ball prior to positioning them on the valve body separator plate.Install eight rubber and one steel EPC check balls.
|1||—||EPC steel check ball|
NOTE: Apply petroleum jelly to the EPC check ball spring prior to installing it into the case.Install the EPC check ball spring.
NOTE: The word UP stamped on the separator plate reinforcement, must be visible when installed.Install the separator plate reinforcement plate.
NOTE: Prior to installing the solenoid body assembly, coat the case connector bore with silicone grease.Install the solenoid body assembly.
CAUTION: Do not reuse the old filter and seal assembly.
CAUTION: Make sure that the pump bore is clean and the old filter seal has been removed.
NOTE: Prior to installation, lightly lubricate the fluid filter seal with clean automatic transmission fluid.Install a new filter and seal assembly by pressing it into place.
NOTE: Do not discard the gasket unless damaged. This is a reusable gasket.
NOTE: Apply a light coat of petroleum jelly to hold the gasket to the fluid pan.Position the gasket onto the clean fluid pan. Make sure the magnet is positioned over the dimple in the fluid pan.
CAUTION: Mixing the 4x2-style and 4x4-style transmission fluid filters and transmission pan assembly components can cause transmission damage.Install the correct pan with gasket for this application. Alternately tighten the bolts.
