Buti just tore it down today to find out it broke the key on the crankshaft holding the cam gears and now it has 10 out of 16 valves bent and gouges taken out of a couple of the pistons. For that matter, what is in a Marauder? I did learn, which was no surprise, that Ford would make a running change on some element of the engine which precluded the ability to put the updated piece on an older engine. There … are two separate wiring harnesses under the hood, one for the Engine Management System, one for the electrical assesories lights etc. Any engine requires that the engineers make design choices from among myriad, and often competing, priorities and requirements. The came back to me 3 different times with really crazy problems like; transmission fluid in the radiator how can transmission fluid get into the radiator??? I do need to replace the front shocks but the air ride rear suspension works like a charm.
Times have changed as the aftermarket has caught up with demand. I bet few people here know that. Ford called its C4 the Cruise-O-Matic while Mercury called its C4 the Merc-O-Matic. How the hell could he know that? In 1998, due to durability concerns, the intermediate one-way roller clutch was replaced with a mechanical diode providing extra holding capacity and longer service. I took it to JiffyLube to have the oil changed after putting 7192 miles on it, I know I should have done it sooner.
My thought was the same as yours on pulling a 4000 lb trailer. And after careful consideration and checking for issues. Do you even know what a chevy 350 vs a vortec 350 is? I do lots of short distance driving so only have about 225,000 kms on it. Why was their no room growth in displacement? I always coat the threads with anti-seize goo. I love Ford V8s, long live the 4. Once I modified the airbox and added dual exhaust with low-restriction turbo mufflers, I could roast its mushy Michelin touring tires at will.
I recommend around 5000 miles. The 1964—1966 C4 was known as the Dual-Range Cruise-O-Matic due to its dual-range shift pattern, which included two driving ranges based on shifter position. I had the Marquis less than a month when it would be running fine down the road and momentarily it would almost stop, the temp gage would peg out and a warning signal would sound and then immediately start running fine again. Cores can be purchased and rebuilt to suit the needs of a specific vehicle for much less than a comparably rebuilt modern overdrive automatic transmission with electronic controls. Anybody ever run into that problem, or was this just one of those days at the dealership? We have a service truck at work with only 160k on it and it has shot out 8 of the 10 already. It is my daily driver. The castings are reclaimed and remanufactured but aside from that we install all new parts valves,seats, guides all new to prevent any problems.
I had them do nothing, just left. Geez; in the old days, medium sized trucks used six cylinders smaller than that, with half the hp. Stude had a weight problem while the Ford had a girth issue. Numerous advancements came with this new transmission, most notably its transmission control module that has near complete control over the functions of the mechanical aspects of the transmission. F-150 forums are full of people disappointed with the perfomance, economy, and resale of their 4.
See related questions for more info about catch-all questions. The project was shelved with a design that lacked a dampener in the torque converter but after the project was revisited a dampener ultimately made its way into the final design. It still got into more time and dealing with differences to place one where the other was. Never touched the motor or trany aside from tune ups and regular maintenance. Reply a little late here. I have a couple Of buddies that have the 5.
Answer 2 A grey plastic plug with a large screwdriver slot in it locate … d on the top of the transmission box when unscrewed and removed reveals a small dipstick attached to the underside of the plastic plug. While these modifications can be done to 4R75W transmission, the results are not as dramatic as some of the details of the J-Mod bigger holes in the separator plate and gasket were done to the transmission in its design. The Transmission also contains the rear end drive assembly. Some of the expedtions come with a reuseable gasket, if yours has this it will be stamped in the pan that the gasket is re-useable. The 90s were the turning point where making the same result done better, as was the general engineering philosophy of the post-malaise era, was beginning to wear thin and people began demanding measureable improvements to go with them again. The transmission dipstick on a 1999 Corvette is on top of the transmission.
I will say though, the 4. That shows where the bigger compromise in the design probably is. Hence daewoo is no longer sold in usa. Our blocks are 50 state emissions legal certified. Sorry for the venting, just wanted to share the problem with the Marquis. As indicated above, I have the head and 2 piece plug combination mentioned above. Now almost 15 years have passed! Tip: Don't use pronouns such as he, she, it, them, their, his, her, its, and so forth in your question.
The source of the problem is a unique plug design that is made with a 2-piece shell, which often separates, leaving the lower portion of the spark plug stuck deep in the engine. At age 61 I still enjoy that sound! This causes the engine to flare up and then down again as the clutch cannot hold back the power of the engine. He turned his nose up at it. And no the mustangs is a 3v version not a 2v version. These improvements allowed the 4R75W to handle more power while being more efficient and economical. Instead, it used a redesigned valve body offering a P-R-N-D-2-1 shift pattern known as Select-Shift. For one model year only—1964—the C4 had a five-bolt bellhousing for V-8s only.
