5r55e

  1. 5r55e won’t shift past 2nd

    02 4.0 4x4. At first I had no drive or reverse (went out on me going down the road), got home slowly, did a fluid and filter change, now I have drive and reverse back but won’t shift past 2nd gear. It’s like it drops out of 2nd to shift and just hits a an almost neutral, it goes but with no...
  2. 5r55e odd problem

    I have a 2003 ranger xlt 4x4. I had the 5r55e rebuilt by a long time tranny shop last summer. This is what it does, it seems to work ok but at times with cruise on it acts like it shift in and out of gear until you floor it to pass someone. It then instantly jumps to 5500rpm like it kicks out of...

    2001 4.0 4x4 possible trans problem?

    On the way to work the other day, I started to get a pretty major shudder in the driveline. I've since noticed that it will only do it right after it has shifted gears and it's low in the RPM range, while you're applying more throttle to try to accelerate. It's a major shudder and will rock you...
  4. O/D issue 5R55E

    Hey there folks, I have been reading every post about this issue for hours and none of them addressed my issue or they did not have a complete thread. I have a 2000 Ranger 4x4, 4.0 V6 (V.I.N. 1FTYR11X6YPA36711). According to all that I have found, it should be the 5R55E. When I got it (used)...
  5. transmission interchange

    I put a good 5r55e transmission from a 97 explorer 4.0 4x2 into my 97 ranger 4.0 4x2. It won't shift.Only has 1st and reverse. Seems like it must be something electronic because it worked fine in the explorer. Anyone know if the electronics are different and can anything be done about it?
  6. 5R55E Delayed upshift under heavy throttle

I bought a ranger for my first vehicle ten years ago and it is still my daily drive today. I recently picked up another ranger from a female aquantance whos mechanic duped her...

  9. 5r55e

    While i am getting ready to work on my transmission, I am gathering my data as well as reading all of the information in these news groups. I am going for the valve body gasket and probably the solenoids. (EPC) But like I said I'm still investigating. Symptom: Does not shift from 2-3 unless I...
  10. 5R55E TCC won't lockup and hard 1-2 shift

    So here’s my problem - I have a 1997 Ranger 177,000 miles, 4X4, 4.0L, with a 5R55E transmission. It has been throwing code P1744 and once threw code P0756. The problem has been getting worse but for a while if I was in OD and I had to slow down and the transmission downshifted it wouldn’t lock...

    5R55E Buzz when cold

    Hello, My transmission makes a buzzing, almost a cavitation, noise at start up in the mornings and after it has sat for a few hours. It seems to be worse when the ambient temperature is low (40's). The sound is temporarily muted as I move the shifter from P to R to D. This noise goes away...

    Tranny Conversions

    We all know that the newer ranger trannies become pieces of abstract art in most high power situations, right? I'm no expert on transmissions, but I do know many people love their 4.0 SOHC engines, and it is just sad that we have to leave this platform due to the weak link that sits behind it. I...
  13. 5R55E Shifting Problem

    I have a 2002 Ranger 4.0 Extended cab with 47k miles and the 5R55E 5 speed transmission. I don't want to rebuild the whole trans. When the truck is cold and you first take off in drive 1-2 shift is delayed, seems like it holds on to 1st gear too long, but does shift into 2nd. When it warms...

    How Much Pressure is too much pressure?

    I am driving an 01 Ranger with the 5r55e tranny, and I am tuning for more power. The only real question I have is how much shift pressure is too much? I'd hate to be halfway down the track and it shifts so hard it breaks stuff. Is this a realistic concern? I wish I could say how many psi over...

  16. Explorer 1995 4R55E to 5R55E Swap - No Lockup

    Hello! I really need help! I changed my old 4R55E wich broke a band to a 5R55E from a 1997 Explorer. The tranny was just rebuild. Lockup failed to engage immediatly when I took the car for a test drive. What happens is that when I pass a certain speed (80km/h) lockup should engage but instead...
  17. transmission problems in 5R55E

    Hi so I did an engine swap on a 2005 ford ranger 4.0 and every thing went smoothly. And now it will start but it will not move when i put it in gear and I have checked to see if the shift linkage moves and it does but nothing more happens? And so I was wondering if any one out there had the same...
