    Remanufactured Ford Crown Victoria Transmissions 


    The panther body Ford Crown Victoria is one of the most popular full-size American cars on the road today. You can put a ton of miles on these cars, and with proper maintenance, they will keep going for years. However, transmission problems the 4R75E or 4R70W could sideline this iconic sedan. But installing a remanufactured Ford Crown Victoria transmission might help you keep it on the road for many more years. So let’s see if that’s your best option. 


    Common Ford Crown Victoria 4R75E / 4R70W Transmissions Problems  


    Slipping, Erratic Shifting, Harsh Forward or Reverse Gear Engagement: Some of the most common 4R75E / 4R75W transmission problems are slipping between gears, erratic up or down shifts, or a hard slam when the 4R75E / 4R75W transmission engages Drive or Reverse. There are a number of design flaws in this transmission, and any one of them could be causing these symptoms. 

    Another common problem is overheating. This happens when the moving parts inside the transmission are creating more friction heat than the ATF can remove. The most common cause of this condition is towing heavy loads, driving in stop/go traffic, or on mountain roads where the transmission has to shift a lot. 


    TCC Application in 2nd Gear – 4R75E Transmission  

    2005 – 2006 Ford Crown Victoria – 2005 – 2006 Ford E-150 – 2005 – 2006 Ford E-250 – 2005 – 2006 Ford Expedition – 2005 – 2006 Ford F-150 – 2005 – 2006 Mercury Grand Marquis – 2005 – 2006 Lincoln Town Car – 2005 – 2006 Lincoln Mark LT 

    Problem – A lack of power after the 1-2 shift can be caused by an un-commanded torque converter clutch application / TCC apply. The P0742 and/or P1742 DTCs may also be stored. 

    Solution  The #7 check ball inside of the valve body may have worn down to an incorrect size, allowing the torque converter clutch to apply after the 1-2 shift. Replacement of this check ball may solve the problem. 


    Slipping in All Forward Gears – 4R75E Transmission  

    2005 – 2006 Ford 4R75E Transmission 

    Problem – Many 2005 – 2006 Ford vehicles equipped with the 4R75E transmission, may experience excessive slipping in all forward gears. Metal shavings may also be present in the transmission fluid. 

    Solution  Replace forward clutch drum and update ECU with program 06B06 


    How to Solve Ford Crown Victoria Transmission Problems 


    Solution A: Buy a Used Ford Crown Victoria Transmission  

    Going to the local junkyard and picking up a used Ford Crown Victoria transmission might seem like the cheapest and fastest option. But you need to consider the fact that you don’t know what the actual shape of the internal components are. It could very well be on the verge of transmission problems of its own, which would leave you in the exact same predicament that you’re in now. And that 30 – 90 day junkyard warranty probably won’t cover labor charges to install the replacement transmission if something goes wrong. 


    Solution B: Buy a Rebuilt Ford Crown Victoria Transmission  

    Getting a rebuilt Ford Crown Victoria transmission would probably seem like a better idea. However, a lot of mechanics and transmission shops will only rebuild your Ford Crown Victoria transmission back to its original factory specifications. Which means that all of those factory design flaws are still going to be inplay. And that rebuilt transmission warranty might only be good at certain shops, which could do you no good if you have transmission problems while you’re traveling. 


    Solution C: Buy a Remanufactured Ford Crown Victoria Transmission  

    If you want to get the most service life out of your little luxury SUV as possible, then you really should consider a remanufactured Ford Crown Victoria 78transmission from Street Smart Transmission. Each one is completely disassembled and re-remanufactured, so nothing is left to chance. Theyre also modified to correct the factory design flaws, which will greatly extend the service life. Plus, you get a 3-Year/Unlimited Mile Nationwide Warranty. This will cover parts and labor charges at any licensed repair shop in the Continental United States, giving you a lot more flexibility and coverage.
