    I have a 96 f250 with 7.3 and e4od. I found an e4od from a 97 e350 with 7.3 and f7up-ta forge mark. Will it fit my f250? Any help is appreciated!

    Hello I have a question about my E4OD transmission I'd like to ask you. I swapped an E4OD from a 1996 or 1997 F250 4x4 into my 1997 F350 4x4. Both run the 7.3 powerstroke motor. I've noticed that the truck goes through the gears and gets to 4th at about 35ish mph and stays there from then on. If I hit the pedal to pass someone at speed the truck goes into neutral. Also, when running at 60-70 mph the truck is in 4th gear running about 2100-2200 rpms, that is very high I believe. Do you have any ideas as to what the problem could be, perhaps the newer transmission has different gearing? Any help or thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    hey mark just got done testing those wires on the 2 sensors on the top of the trans they both tested good. i also unplugged the harness on the passenger side right next to the heat sheild and when i unplugged it i noticed what looked liked tranny oil,is this normal? now that i check the wires and both sensors are new what else could be throwing the OSS and TSS codes and the OSS circut failure code? i am stuck. in the mean time my batteries took a #### and now i have to replace them also. AAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    good morning mark from the west coast. thanks for the info on that swap questoin i asked but pretty sure im not going to that. im going to focus on thir 4r100 and try to make it a pullin beast. i had it rebuilt about 5 yrs ago and had a TC built for it by a company called DP products. the tranny shop said that i had all steel planet gears in it and he put a shift kit in it. not sure about the valve body do you recomend one that might make a inprovment. ever since i had the work done it seems it shifts into OD way to soon. and i dont know about stall speed or how it even works. so i guess what im asking is how and what do i need to do to make this tranny a towing beast. thanks again for all your input.

    Good morning Mark, I have a 1997 Ford 7.3 with the E40D Transmission. My overdrive light just started blinking and I had the codes pulled. There were 2 codes, P0603 and P1728. Is there any info you can provide me on what I should do next?
    Thanks for any help in advance.
