  1. NOTICE: The torque converter is heavy. Be careful not to drop it or damage will result.

    NOTICE: Only thread the bolts 6 to 8 turns or do not exceed 12 mm (0.472 in) into the torque converter. If the bolts are threaded too far, damage to the torque converter clutch surface can occur causing torque converter failure.

    Ford Taurus. Automatic Transmission

  1. NOTICE: Do not use water-based cleaners or mineral spirits to clean or flush the torque converter or transmission damage will occur. Use only clean transmission fluid designated for the transmission and torque converter being serviced.

    Clean and inspect the torque converter for damage.

    1. Inspect the sealing surface for a groove worn from the seal. Install a new torque converter if necessary.
    1. A new or remanufactured torque converter must be installed if one or more of the following statements is true:
      • A torque converter malfunction has been determined based on complete diagnostic procedures.
      • The torque converter stud or studs, impeller hub or bushing are damaged.
      • The torque converter exhibits external discoloration (due to overheating).
      • There is evidence of transmission assembly or fluid contamination due to the following transmission or converter failure modes.
        • Major metallic failure
        • Multiple clutch plates or band failures
        • Sufficient component wear which results in metallic contamination
        • Water or antifreeze contamination
    1. If none of the above conditions are present, continue with the following fluid inspection.
    1. Pour a small amount of transmission fluid from the torque converter onto an absorbent white tissue or through a paper filter.
    1. Examine the fluid for contaminants. The fluid must be free of metallic contaminants.
    1. NOTICE: Do not use water-based cleaners or mineral spirits to clean or flush the torque converter or transmission damage will occur.

      If the fluid passed inspection:

    • drain the remaining fluid from the torque converter.
    • using only the recommended transmission fluid, add 1.9L (2 qt) of clean fluid into the converter and agitate by hand.
    • thoroughly drain the fluid.
  1. NOTE: Note the location of the studbolts for assembly.

    Ford Taurus. Automatic Transmission

  1. Measure the depth of the low/reverse clutch pressure plate where the tab fits into the gap of the low OWC snap ring and directly across from it. If the pressure plate is seated correctly, the depth should be the same. If the depths are different, rotate the snap ring so that the gap fits around the tab on the pressure plate. Measure the length or distance.

  1. Using a straightedge and the Depth Micrometer 303-D075 (D92P-4201-A), measure and record as measurement A, the distance from the transmission case deck surface to the low/reverse pressure plate. Measure the length or distance.

    Ford Taurus. Automatic Transmission

  1. Using the same straightedge and the Depth Micrometer 303-D075 (D92P-4201-A), measure and record as measurement B, the distance from the low/reverse clutch piston to the cover assembly deck surface. Measure the length or distance.

    Ford Taurus. Automatic Transmission

  1. Subtract measurement B from measurement A and add 1.6 mm (0.062 in), to compensate for the thickness of the gasket, to get the low/reverse clutch clearance. The clearance should be between 0.83 mm (0.032 in) and 2.43 mm (0.095 in). If the clearance is out of range, check the low/reverse clutch pack for correct installation. If the low/reverse clutch pack is correctly installed, install a new low/reverse clutch pack.

  1. Subtract measurement B from measurement A and add 1.6 mm (0.062 in), to compensate for the thickness of the gasket, to get the intermediate clutch clearance. The clearance should be between 0.99 mm (0.038 in) and 2.56 mm (0.1 in). If the clearance is out of range, check the intermediate clutch pack for correct installation. If the intermediate clutch pack is correctly installed, install a new intermediate clutch pack.

  1. Position the overdrive/direct clutch assembly in the cover assembly, install the Dial Indicator Gauge with Holding Fixture 100-002 (TOOL-4201-C) plunger on the overdrive clutch pressure plate. Apply 483 kPa (70 psi) of air pressure to the overdrive clutch piston port while recording the clutch pack clearance on the Dial Indicator. The clearance should be between 1.13 mm (0.044 in) and 2.28 mm (0.089 in). If the clearance is out of range, check the overdrive clutch pack for correct installation. If the overdrive clutch pack is correctly installed, install a new overdrive clutch pack. Measure the length or distance.

  1. Position the Dial Indicator Gauge with Holding Fixture 100-002 (TOOL-4201-C) on the direct clutch pressure plate. Apply 483 kPa (70 psi) of air pressure to the direct clutch piston port while recording the clutch pack clearance on the Dial Indicator. The clearance should be between 0.98 mm (0.038 in) and 2.34 mm (0.092 in). If the clearance is out of range, check the direct clutch pack for correct installation. If the direct clutch pack is correctly installed, install a new direct clutch pack. Measure the length or distance.

  1. NOTICE: Remove the valves by tapping the valve body on the palm of the hand to slide the valves out of the bores. It may be necessary to remove the valves and springs using a pick. If it is necessary to use a pick, use extreme caution to prevent damaging the valves or valve bores. If necessary, disassemble parts of the main control valve body in small groups. Take special care when handling the main control components, since they are the most precise and delicate parts of the transmission. Neatly arrange the parts as they are removed to avoid mixing similar pieces.

    NOTE: Do not stone or polish any valves. If the valves do not move freely, install a new assembly.

    Remove the individual valves and springs from the main control valve body and lower valve body by removing the retaining clips. See the Valve Body and Lower Valve Body illustrations at the beginning of this procedure for valve and spring locations. Clean valves, springs, main control valve body and lower valve body.
