Re: e40d help NEEDED!

Unhook both batts for a couple mins to reset the codes. Then hook them back up & take it for a drive & see if you can pickup when the light comes on. Mine would come on going up a hill or getting into it to speed up. Going up a hill I could watch the tach bounce about 50rpm then the light would come on. My converter was done, replaced the converter & so far so good.

Re: e40d help NEEDED!

I wouldn't do that. I would read the codes first. Then you'll have a good starting place to find out what's wrong.

Re: e40d help NEEDED!

Have to go to the dealer or trans shop. I never got around to getting codes pulled on mine since I couldn't track down anyone local I did it the hard way. If you can count the times it blinks it will tell you the code. PM RacerX he knows how to do it on the older trucks.

You can buy an OBDI code reader for under $30 at most parts stores, Wally World, Kmart, etc.

Re: e40d help NEEDED!

ok heres exactly wat its doing, it will move around fine and everything until you accelerate it past first gear(which it wont shift until a higher rpm, way higher than normal) and then the OD light comes on and it blinks in a constant on-off-on-off, no pattern what so ever, then in reverse it wants to stall out like the torque is tryin to lock up(and thats not even moving at all)

i guess im goin to just have the code read, thats the only thing i can figure

Re: e40d help NEEDED!

The E4OD has 4 gears, the converter lockup feels like a gear by itself.

Re: e40d help NEEDED!

ya lost me there, it locking up feels as if you would be slipping out a clutch while holding the brake, it is alway pulling the rpms down as it "locks up"
