Re: Questions About E40D Transmission Issues and normal life span.
first thing i would do is check fluid level. when the fluid level is low it will hesitate to go into gear cold, and the torque converter will hang locked up when stopping.
as for life span, i have seen unmaintained and abused E4OD's blow at 30k miles, and very well maintained transmissions last over 600,000 miles.
owner of almost to many fords.
If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.
