The biggest issue Ford faced was making the TorqShift able to stand up to the diesel's torque. By - October 2, 2009 Replacing two older transmissions in all 2011 production Ford Super Duty trucks will be the 6R140 heavy-duty TorqShift six-speed automatic transmission. The Lepelletier powerflow design has been around for a long time, but it's not typically found in diesels due to their massive torque.

Though transmission problems can result in an expensive replacement, the issue may involve a simpler repair. By using a proprietary powder-metal compound in the planetary gear carrier, Ford was able to beef up the system enough to handle the burly diesel engine. If you haven't heard, has two new V-8 engines coming, a 6.
While this may seem expensive to some, it is a necessity here at SunCoast. This transmission has also been matched with the new 6. SunCoast goes a step further and replaces every pump with one of our custom calibrated new Ford Rotorcraft pump, not a reman one from China. This transmission problem is attributed to a transmission fluid leak reported in anot Produced from 1995 to 2000, the Ford Contour--a compact four-door sedan--has a host of problems with its model-year entries. So the transmission uses just five clutch sets to achieve six forward gears. I chose to use 2. ModelsThe reports of transmission problems in the Ford Fusion span all years of manufactured models.
Main Transmission ProblemThe most common problem with the Ford Contour's transmission is the failure of the flex plate on the four-speed automatic transmission. This process while expensive, promotes lubrication and longevity. This new proprietary SunCoast clutch pack is exclusively designed for our patented clutch hub. For an official fluid change the truck transmission is to be hooked up to a shop's fluid changing machine which pre-heats the incoming fluid and meters the fluid going in precisely with the fluid exiting. The varying engine types are all susceptible to the common malfunctions.
When Ford released the 6. Essentially a sealed container with a diaphragm between two chambers, one of which takes in the old fluid, and displaces the new heated fluid forcing it into the transmission. Run it for 10-20-30 miles. Certain repair procedures may be done at home, while others must be done by professionals. First and foremost, Ford opted to incorporate a robust one-piece bell housing design for the all new 6R140 Torqshift transmission. The TorqShift design in fact has six forward ratios, but only five are advertised, with the 'hidden' gear only used in extreme cold weather. This signifies a transmission fluid leak caused by a broken gasket or bearing leak.
The new Ford 6R140 Torqshift transmission is the most robust transmission Ford has yet to build. Unless I can drain it 99% like I can on an old schooler trans. A search online led to a number of fragments of instructions on how to accomplish the change without the specialized equipment, but no complete sets of directions, so I pieced it together and decided to post up here with the scheme I used. Shift timing can be the difference between bind up and flare. To accomplish this with a minimum of danger of burning myself with hot oil I got a ready. A different kind of transmission specifically developed to help use the high low-end force created by the new diesel powerplant. It also utilizes an alternate 4th gear, overdrive on 2nd gear of the 3-speed automatic component 0.
So how do you build a transmission that's good for both? It is only available at SunCoast. If your trans has over 100K on the original fluid and its dirty you may want to do this X2 so 4 casses and 2 filters with in X miles or find a heated transmission flusher. This new clutch hub damper allows for clean, crisp, and silent gear exchange. The TorqShift 1st to 5th gear ratios are 3. The new 6R140 from from Ford is definitely one of the most exciting drivetrains on the market today. To drain the outgoing fluid I installed a valve on the fluid return line when I put in a transmission filter. The extra capacity in the clutch pack along with the higher friction coefficient provides unmatched performance that cannot be matched by anything else on the planet.
BackgroundLate generation transmissions for the Ford F-150 are the 6R80E 6-speed automatic and the Automatic OverDrive electronic 4R70W and 4R75E 4-speed transmissions. As we tested our different friction materials and manufactures we saw a pattern develop. No more frustrating and fruitless time spent in the owner' s manual. The new 6R140 was released to replaced the previous Torqshift unit, which was the 5R110. There is a filter support in the pan to support the bottom. The key difference is that Hard Coat Anodizing provides a surface that is not only more wear resistant but also has a much smoother and harder surface than standard anodizing. We have seen our competitors simply settle for a clutch that has less friction coefficient allowing slip to occur during the shift.
Ford has also designed this with a certain torque limit in mind that most certainly did not have deletes, larger chargers, and aftermarket tuners involved. Why go to all this trouble? SunCoast has also seen pre-mature internal pump wear with these 6R140 units. Often, these problems are similar and resolved easily. Come along as we show you how to maintain your transmission fluid on 6R140 equipped vehicles. To help do this a graduated container to store the waste fluid is needed. It has no drain for the torque-converter chamber over half the fluid , requiring the fluid be expelled by the cooling lines, which are blocked by an internal thermostat.
