Run it around to heat the engine up and shift thru all gears including Reverse. Pay particular attention to add-on wiring splices in the powertrain control module harness or transmission wiring harness, abnormal tire size or axle ratio changes. I am eternally grateful for your input. At this time, the converter, transmission cooler and cooler lines must be thoroughly flushed to remove any contamination Road Testing Vehicle Read Visual Inspection This inspection will identify modifications or additions to the vehicle operating system that may affect diagnosis. Actuator: Transmission Control Indicator Lamp.
Thanks for any help, Tom Thanks for your response Commander - I am only a weekend warrior wrencher but have suspected an electrical ghost from the start. M programmable, speedometer, odometer, module it part of the instrument cluster. The throttle position sensor detects the position of the throttle plate or lever and sends this information as a voltage signal to the powertrain control module. I personally will be swapping to tractor hydro fluid in my trans. We set out to build an E40D that was reliable, could withstand torque and most of all it had to be built at an industry low price. As soon as it go into gear now it stumbles and dies. I had to remove the filter to remove the valve body to change springs.
Erratic operation flashing may be due to a wiring concern. Symptoms: Harsh engagements, firm shift feel. I did take it fishing Sunday and we got two small snook and a couple of very nice trout.

Remove the transmission fluid pan to determine if the transmission fluid filter has dropped down or is not firmly seated in the pump bore. If a malfunction occurs in the throttle position sensor circuit, the powertrain control module will recognize that the throttle position sensor signal is out of specification. When the switch is pressed, a signal is sent to the powertrain control module. During vehicle operation, including normal and anti-lock braking, the anti-lock brake electronic control module monitors all electrical anti-lock functions and some hydraulic operations. No misses, hesitations and is shifting well although I haven't driven too far or have beaten on it yet I'm still spooked.

I use the mark on the stick, but not sure that it is the correct one as the hold down tab faces the wrong direction. Many input sensors provide information to the powertrain control module, which then controls the actuators that affect transmission operation.

She must have like the new fluid, after sitting at turn light today behind 6 fools that didn't realize it wasn't working! The transmission worked well in light duty applications, but was not well-designed to handle the towing needs of Powerstroke-equipped trucks. This is easy enough to fix. Any suggestions would be great.
