It's never worked, and that has never bothered me - up until it randomly jumped into 4Low last week. The valve body on the C-5 has several new valves and an added timing body where the filter would normally be found on the C-4. This will cause an internal leak that will result in a drop in the transmissions line pressure. Edit: Waste extra time as in going to the store to get the splicing stuff. You have to remove the front seats, and pull back the carpet. For the chevy fans who don't know better, Ranger's have the same rearend as the ford F-150.
The modulator is on the passenger's side of the transmission to the rear of the 2 servos. So I did have to figure the wiring out. The tranny fluid is milky but the radiator shows no sign of tranny fluid. I can put it in every gear, and they all work except drive and over drive. They differ from a rebuilt transmission in the fact that they are as good as a new transmission at a greatly reduced price and often include modifications and upgrades that make them much more durable. Underneath, I'd have to cut out the exhaust pipes, in addition to buying the tools to do that. However, I'm going to presume this is the problem and within the next few days try and see which way will be the best access to changing it.
I ran a bead of silicone around the hump access cover to prevent water from coming in the bolt clips on three of them were rusted and were not usable , placed the carpet back down, and installed the seats. Electronic tunes also modify the way the transmission shifts. My dealer told me that the high altitude was effecting the way the computer controlled transmission was shifting. Any suggestions will be helpful and appreciated. Hello - I recently bought a 1994 Ford Ranger 4x4 with 18,000 miles on it. Hello, Do you have any idea what would cause this transmission to do a slow downshift between 4 and 3 at highway speeds? The C-3's were said to be offered in 1983 and 1984 in the Rangers and from 1974 - 1987 in other Ford Products.
My truck is how I need her to be, finally. I'm not sure what they actually did. I will even try to take some pictures of the steps I take. To take just the motor off the transfer case, I'd have to cut 1-3 wires, as they're routed a very moronic way. The speed gears all run on needle bearings on the shafts. It's worked fine up until I left from work one morning. If so, there is a possibility you did not align it correctly with the alignment pins.
One of the most interesting upgrades available for this transmission is the off-road race package. That does not seem like too bad a thing, but will it possibly make the motor run less reliably, or make it harder to take off due to the decreased inertia? The torque converter from a C-4 will fit a C-5 so long as the spline count and shaft diameters are the same. Also, get references from the shop and call the people. I then connected the vacuum line and took it for a test drive. .
I didn't have to replace the vacuum modulator. All the one's I've heard sound like a thump. I hope that I have included all of the information without giving too much. I crawled under the truck and located the vacuum line that extends from the transmission Vacuum Modulator up to the engine's intake manifold. We will not process your order before verifying with you the engine information! This mod also allows the transmission to be used completely manually. Vacuum Modulator access Thanks BrooklynBay.
The transmission fluid is somehow getting into the engine's combustion chamber and burning off. Turn the engine over and check the runout of the converter hub. A 150 mile trip through steep hills will burn 1 quart of fluid. And I do have an analytical mind, I'm a Computer Technician. Prior to connecting the vacuum line to the vacuum modulator, I started the engine to pull through any remaining transmission fluid that was still in the vacuum line. Hope things turn out ok! The sound has yet to come back.
The rear cooler line is the cooler return line. I have done a quick look around of the tranny, and it appears to be ok. Photos Unfortunately, I didn't take any photographs. The only modification that I had the chance to do so far was to install the pedals, which required some cutting, and a little bit of welding. Heat is the biggest enemy of the automatic transmission. Once the engines get much higher than that depends on usage the main shafts will start bending. Change your fluid and filter every year, or every 12-15,000 miles if used hard.
I had to pull the motor off the xfer case duh. I lifted the modulator out with the pin facing up to prevent losing it. Are you getting a preadjusted modulator or an adjustable one? More information: I bought a 1987 Ranger 2. This has a light duty aluminum case and has a rectangular shape casting ribs with a large top cover. Question: I located a transmission vacuum modulator online. It has only one vacuum line connected to the engine.
