    Default 1994 Ford F-150 transmission problem

    when vehicle shifts gears there is hard thump as if that it has stayed
    between gears to long and let engine rev to much.One place says there is
    an electronic sensor that needs to be replaced.The Ford dealership says
    there is a valve in the valve body sticking.Also will shift smoothly if
    I let off gas. Any ideas or suggestions would be
    appreciated. thanks hlb

    Ford is most likely right. Either a valve or a small spring in the
    valvebody.

    The Ford E-4-OD trans is very tempermental on fluid
    Quality as well as age of the fluid. When I got certified by " ATRA' it
    was made perfectally clear that you should not go over 30,000 on the
    trans fluid with out a change and flush. The Filters seem to clog with
    the dirty fluid alone even with out the presence of any particulate
    mass. So Change your fluid regularly with a Quality Fluid and Filter
    and you should Get good service out of the truck.
