Took my truck to a shop to have the problem diagnosed. They replaced the wire harness connector going to the coil pack because it was corroded and letting water enter the connector. Cost $300. While inspecting the coil pack male ends they noticed one pin broken. Said I need a new coil pack at cost of $775 counting labor.
This tranny was overhauled about three years ago. It has been working pretty good even with the lite on. If I press the OD button it will shift back and forth to over drive normally. Two days ago
I noticed a vibration when I speed up in any gear. The shop believes its caused from bad U joints.


My question. Is there any difference in coil packs as long as it is for a 1992 F250? Does any one have a part number or source of supply
Any comments or suggestions is appreciated.

A diesel with a coil pack??? Do you mean the transmission solenoids?

They bent you over on that broken pin. The dealership where I worked had a huge bin of new terminals in every size ever used by Ford so we could replace any single pin in any connector. You can buy a bag of one size on Amazon or eBay, if you know how to describe/search for it. The point is - they could have fixed it for a $2 part and a couple of minutes' labor. If they already did that work, I hope you kept the old one.

Yes, U-joints commonly cause acceleration vibration. Shift to NEUTRAL, set the e-brake, chock at least one tire fore&aft, and crawl under to inspect it yourself. If you let it go, it can become this:

Assuming your truck has the E4OD (I think the only electronic automatic in '92), then yes: all E4ODs from '89 up to ~'96 use the same valve body & solenoids. Click this & read the TSBs in the caption:

The pins are on the solenoid body, not the connector. It's not a simple job to take apart the plastic on the solenoid body and replace a pin. In fact, I doubt it could be done. So no, they didn't bend him over, and no, it couldn't be fixed for a $2 part and a few minutes labor. The solenoid body needed to be replaced.

Check on ebay, lots of coil packs. Amazon also has them. Get creative.

Thanks Steve
Going to replace U joints and solenoid pack ASAP

PS We lived in Bartlett for 4 years during my Military time.

OK I see a lot of other vehicles with transmission connector pin problems, so I must have been thinking of one of them. Probably a BMW/Land Rover... Sorry for the confusion.
