Transmission Service with the 1524 Transmission Flusher
The number one reason for transmission failure is fluid breakdown. Over time, the automatic transmission fluid (ATF) becomes contaminated and loses its viscosity and the ability to lubricate the moving parts within the transmission. Conventional service methods of dropping the pan and changing the filter result in only about 30-40% of the total ATF in the transmission being drained out. That leaves 60-70% of the old ATF to be mixed with the new ATF introduced during service. Therefore, adequate lubrication is not achieved.

This conversion is not as easy as some people make out but can still be done by the back yard mechanic with some basic skills. You will need: Type 9 gearbox from a Sierra 1600 (about 1988-92) Bellhousing to suit the Pinto 2000 engine 20mm thick spacers to go in the cross member mounts (optional) Clutch, flywheel, pedal box, clutch cable, etc.
The cross member off the automatic transmission fits the Type 9 but needs to be lowered 20 mm otherwise the g/box will hit the underside of the transmission tunnel.

Whenever an automatic transmission is replaced, overhauled or individual components are replaced, use this procedure to clear Engine Control Module (ECM, SAE term: Powertrain Control Module, PCM) “Learned Values” to minimize subsequent performance concerns. CAUTION: Failure to follow the procedure below may lengthen the time to readjust the ECM “Learned Values,” potentially resulting in performance concerns.
The Aviator, which debuted last year, is (like the Mercury Mountaineer) based on the Explorer, Ford’s bestselling, mid-size 16-foot SUV. Although the Lincoln derivative is fundamentally the same as the others, there are a number of significant differences. Lincoln ditched the Explorer’s steering rack in favor of variable-assist and variable-ratio steering gear. The shocks and springs are also exclusive to the Aviator, and its interior is very much Lincoln, being swathed in fine leather, satin nickel, and burled walnut. The second row comes as either a three-passenger bench or with two outboard seats and a center console. There’s just one engine available, a 4.6-liter, DOHC 32-valve V-8 that produces 302 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. And the standard five-speed automatic transmission is the best Ford slushbox we’ve ever sampled. For 2004, a tire-pressure monitor is standard, and roll-stability control is optional.
Aside from styling changes, the 2006 WRX features 17 inch tires and a new engine. The old 2.0 litre turbo four-cylinder boxer engine has been replaced by a 2.5 litre turbo. The WRX comes in sedan and wagon versions. Automatic transmission isn’t available with the wagon.
Inside and trunk
Although the car rides low, getting in and out the front is easy; rear access is more awkward because the doors open so narrowly. The front seats are very comfortable and hold passengers in place well with their side-hugging lateral supports. Heavier passengers will feel a little cramped, however. The driver enjoys an excellent driving position.

P1711 Engine Torque Control Signal 1 Circuit Malfunction – With Automatic Transmission
Communication circuit between to the TCM is open or shorted to ground PCM connector is damaged (check pins for damage, and for moisture) TCM connector is damaged (check pins for damage, and for moisture)
Engine speed more than 500 rpm; system voltage over 8.0v, and the PCM detected an unexpected high voltage condition on the Engine Torque Control Signal 1 circuit. This code sets in 2 Trip(s). This code will turn on the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp)

ISSUE Some 2005-2007 Five Hundred. Montego, and 2006-2008 Fusion. Milan. 2006 Zephyr and 2007-2008 MKZ vehicles equipped with an Aisin automatic transmission may experience shift concerns when the vehicle mileage gets above 20.000 miles (32,200 km). Shifting concerns are generally noticed during passing maneuvers with transmission at temperatures greater than 212 “F (100 -C) operating temperatures. Symptoms may be present during downshift 5-3 at 35 MPH (56 km/h) and/or 4-3 at 20 MPH (32 km/h) with throttle opening at approximately 50% or greater and include:
The 2003 3.2 TL is a 4−door, 5−passenger luxury sedan, or sports sedan, available in 4 trims, ranging from the Sedan
to the Type−S w/ Navigation System. The 2003 3.2 TL’s closest competitors include the Audi A4, the Lincoln Town
Car, and the Volvo S80. Upon introduction, the Sedan is equipped with a standard 3.2−liter, V6, 225−horsepower
engine that achieves 19−mpg in the city and 29−mpg on the highway. The Type−S w/ Navigation System is equipped
with a standard 3.2−liter, V6, 260−horsepower engine that achieves 19−mpg in the city and 29−mpg on the highway.
A 5−speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard on both trims. The 2003 3.2 TL is a carryover from 2002.
The automatic driver positioner system has two features Memory storage function Entry exit function MEMORY STORAGE FUNCTION Two positions for the driver s seat accelerator and brake pedals and outside mirrors can be stored in the automatic driver positioner memory Follow these procedures to set driver preferences.
Preparing the Crankshaft and Convertor for Installation
• Always check the crankshaft pilot for burrs and out-of-round.
• Remove any rust with emery paper and lightly grease pocket receiving torque convertor pilot hub.
• Remove paint from the torque convertor’s crank pilot hub with emery paper.
• Before installation, pre-fit the torque convertor to the flex plate and into the back of the crankshaft. It should be a snug, even fit (not loose or binding).
• Slowly pour two quarts of automatic transmission fluid into the convertor.
• Check the flex plate for cracks or worn teeth.
• Replace the transmission front seal.
• Install the torque convertor on the front of the transmission.
• When installing the torque convertor into the transmission, you will feel it seat 3 times for the input shaft, shaft to stator, and oil pump notches.
