If it is shifting fine, don't replace it. Get the bypass installed again - that's what saved your transmission when the OTW cooler plugged. Many people are under the misconception that the bypass...

My 2 cents - get a new radiator off Rockauto. They're only about $120. Get the one with the oil to water cooler. It is dramatically better at cooling the ATF than an oil to air cooler. Run your...

I run the filter on mine on the supply line, but canít see how it would matter. The reason most of us do that is the supply line is easily accessible and a rubber line whereas the return is metal. ...

I did my 03 with a pair from a 2011 to get the garage door opener. The power connection is different, so I had to get a pigtail from Tousley Ford. The screw mounting pattern is the same, but the...

Have you checked the engine oil level? May need to overfill it by a gallon and jack the rear of the truck up to check for a cracked pickup tube. It may just be that you introduced air into the...

Bleeding oil

99% of the time, the leak is an o-ring on one of the quick connect fittings. You need the special disconnect tool and new o-rings. Iíd recommend doing them all while youíre there.
