Yes it should be the same as long as it is the same tranny, (E4OD, C6, ect.) and if they are both 2wheel, or both 4wd.

By the way, trannis go out in old GM's as well!

Don't forget the newer 1/2 ton Dodges too!!

I found that tranny from the Bronco, doing some surfing.

I will ask the guy about it later tonight.

John's Auto has one for 600.00 more that comes with

a one year warranty, (They will install a different

one if it goes bad)

We deal a lot with Johns. Although there have been a few intense conversations over the years on the integrity of the items we have received, they have always taken care of us in the end!!

Dragged it back from Isle. Got to looking at a few

things. First off, the tranny will not hold the truck

when in Park. It can still roll freely. Secondly, if

I start the motor and move the gear shift to drive,

there is a slight pull on the motor, but I cannot shift back into park while it's running. Sounds like the flywheel is

moving. We are guessing the chain in the transfer is

the culprit. I have heard a rattling while the truck was

running, but wrote it off to old age/condition. It

was most likely the chain rattling around in the

tansfer case. Much easier fix I hope......

It is 17 years old!!!!!! I lost a tranny on a 4 year old Hyundai once- that was $1800!!!

Sorry, I actually drive a GM, but am a Ford guy at heart!

I bought it used from a buddy. It had a recent rebuilt

tranny (2K installed), so I was hoping it was good for a while

at least. Maybe the "rebuild" was done on a Friday!!!!!

See if there is warranty on the rebuild. Most places atleast have a 12 month, 12,000 mile warranty.

Good point. We looked at it last night,and have a theory.

It's the E4OD model. This is an electronic controlled

transmission. The failure sympton was: strange noise

at the lifting of the throttle. As long as you kept

the rpms up and moving, it ran fine. (It sounded like

the torque converter wasn't staying locked up,or synced)

It would only do this ocassionally,and always at

the slowing of the vehicle.Then went it went out

coming home (slowing to 30MPH in Isle, it went to no

lock-up at all).

Our theory is that something within the electronics is

not working. The central on board computer manages

the following functions: gear selection,gear change

harshness, torque converter lock-up, and coast control.

It does this by an internal solnoid body. This assembly

consists of 5 solnoids. We think one of these is bad,

sometimes not releasing (strange mashing noise) and

now not engaging (current condition).

Of course this is only a theory!! The whole thing could

be fried. I am hoping the force is with us on this one.

Gotta pull some harnesses and take some readings with

my tri-corder tonight. Geeez, it's a crazy world down

here. And I quote from the starfleet manual....

"The E4OD transmission is fully automatic,electronically

controlled, four speed unit with locking torque converter"

I'd rather be fishing, Beam me out Scotty..............

Is the fluid burnt? Does it smell like it got hot? Is it full? If it smells hot, or burnt it is not a electronic problem, if it looks clean, smells clean, then there is a good chance it is electronic, or a seal leak.

I had a 89 f150 that had a new transmission put in it right before I bought it. It worked great until one day she made a pop noise and I lost everything. I had a transmission guy look at and found that the torque converter just barely touched the pump dogs and should have been shimmed to fit better, after a pump and torque converter it ran perfect.

Fluid is nice and red, and there are no leaks.

The truck used to be a daily driver, but now

I only use it for the occaisional tow rig

or ATV hauler. It might even be the cable

harness or connector?? Many tech logs have that

listed as also a cause for failure...

I think at this point, it would be wise to bring it in to a shop and have in diagnosed professionally, it could save you a lot of money replacing good parts.

    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?    
    • Gotta let youse guys carry on wid something!!! 
    • so why did you say it then!!!!
    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
