  1. NOTICE: Remove the valves by tapping the valve body on the palm of the hand to slide the valves out of the bores or by threading a 4-mm bolt into the valves and pulling them out. 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: The bypass valve is held in with a spring-loaded retainer. Be careful not to lose the retainer when removing it.

    Use a pick to remove the bypass valve retainer.
    General Equipment: Magnet, 4-mm bolt.

  1. NOTICE: Do not stone or polish any valves or damage to the valves can occur. If the valves do not move freely, install a new assembly.

    Clean the valves, springs and main control valve body.

  1. Compress the valve springs and remove the retainers with a magnet. Remove the individual valves and springs from the solenoid body by tapping it on the palm of the hand to slide the valves out of the bores.
    General Equipment: Magnet.

    Ford Taurus. Automatic Transmission

  1. NOTICE: Be careful not to bend or twist the solenoid body leadframe or the solenoid terminals when removing the leadframe or damage can occur to the leadframe or the solenoids.

    Lift straight up evenly.

    Ford Taurus. Automatic Transmission

  1. NOTICE: The solenoids are calibrated from the factory and are not all the same. Failure to mark the solenoids to the ports they were originally in can result in mixing the solenoids and can cause damage to the transmission or a harsh shift.

    Number the solenoids and the solenoid body to correspond with the ports from which the solenoids are located in the solenoid body.

  1. NOTICE: Be careful not to wash the numbers from the solenoids or the solenoid body. Failure to install the solenoids in the ports they were originally in can result in damage to the transmission or a harsh shift.

    NOTICE: Do not stone or polish any valves or damage to the valves can occur. If the valves do not move freely during assembly, install a new solenoid body.

    Clean and inspect the solenoid body, solenoids and valve assemblies for damage.

    Ford Taurus. Automatic Transmission

  1. Inspect the solenoid screens for debris that may restrict fluid flow through the screen.

    Ford Taurus. Automatic Transmission

  1. NOTICE: The solenoids are calibrated from the factory and are not all the same. Failure to install the solenoids in the ports they were originally in can result in damage to the transmission or a harsh shift.

    If new solenoid(s) are not being installed, position the solenoids in the solenoid body ports from which their numbers correspond.

    Ford Taurus. Automatic Transmission

  1. If installing a new VFS , determine the base part number of the solenoid(s). The TCC solenoid, SSA and SSC are all normally low pressure solenoids. The LPC solenoid, SSB and SSD are all normally high pressure solenoids. The SSE is not a VFS , it is an ON/OFF solenoid.

    Ford Taurus. Automatic Transmission

Ford Taurus. Automatic Transmission

  1. If installing new solenoids, note the color of the plastic nozzle and the large O-ring. High pressure solenoids, such as the LPC solenoid, SSB and SSD , have black plastic nozzles and orange O-rings. Low pressure solenoids, such as the TCC solenoid, SSA and SSC , have brown plastic nozzles and green O-rings. The solenoids can only be replaced with the same color solenoid.

    Ford Taurus. Automatic Transmission

  1. Determine the part number suffix by checking the solenoid service band number etched on the side of the solenoid. The band number is next to the two-dimensional matrix barcode on the side of the solenoid and will be a 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5. Determine the part number suffix and match the new solenoid base part number and suffix with the old solenoid.

      • 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.

    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.

  1. Position the plunger on the overdrive (4, 5, 6) clutch pressure plate. Apply 483 kPa (70 psi) of air pressure to the overdrive (4, 5, 6) clutch piston port while recording the clutch pack clearance on the Dial Indicator. The clearance should be between 0.950 mm (0.037 in) and 1.778 mm (0.07 in). If the clearance is out of range, check the overdrive (4, 5, 6) clutch pack for correct installation. If the overdrive (4, 5, 6) clutch pack is correctly installed, install a new overdrive (4, 5, 6) clutch pack.
