Remanufactured Ford Police Interceptor Transmissions 


Who would have thought that the Ford Crown Victoria would become the most recognized police car in the United States? Nevertheless, the Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor became synonymous with law enforcement and taxicabs for many years. Later on, the Ford Taurus Police Interceptor and Ford Explorer Police Interceptor took its place as a rearview mirror icon. Of course Ford Police Interceptor transmission problems can still happen with the 4R75E, 4R70W and 6F50 transmissions. So let’s see if installing a remanufactured Ford Police Interceptor transmission is your best option. 


Common Ford Police Interceptor 4R75E / 4R70W Transmission Problems  


Slipping, Erratic Shifting, Harsh Forward or Reverse Gear Engagement: Some of the most common 4R75E / 4R70W / 6F50 transmission problems are slipping between gears, erratic up or down shifts, or a hard slam when the 4R75E / 4R70W / 6F50 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  

2005 – 2006 Ford Crown Victoria 

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 Police Interceptor Transmission Problems 


Solution A: Buy a Used Ford Police Interceptor Transmission  

Going to the local junkyard and picking up a used Ford Police Interceptor 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 Police Interceptor Transmission 

Getting a rebuilt Ford Police Interceptor transmission would probably seem like a better idea. However, a lot of mechanics and transmission shops will only rebuild your Ford Police Interceptor 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 Police Interceptor 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 Police Interceptor transmission 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.
