Trans. Engagement problem

I've been noticing lately that when I put my truck in reverse or drive it has about a 1-2 second delay and then goes into gear pretty hard (kinda jerks the truck). No lights flashing and the fluid looks great. Seems to be getting worse but it shifts perfect all the time. Only have then issue when removing from park to reverse or drive. Truck has 85k on the clock. I have been running the stock tune also and that is the tune that has been in it since before the problem started. Wondering if there could be a solenoid problem? Thanks for the input.

Here is a TSB I've found that describes my problem. Anyone had this issue?

Harsh or Delayed Forward or Reverse Engagement:


This could be caused by a sticking line pressure control (PC-A) solenoid. Typically the line pressure will be fluctuatiing wildly (up to 500 PSI!). To service, replace the line pressure control solenoid with P/N 4C3Z-7G383-AA. Broadcast Message 1586


This repair will require removing the solenoid harness, so a new harness sealing o-ring will need to be installed. In some cases the solenoid body will need to be removed from the trans to remove the harness and solenoid. In this case the solenoid body gasket will be needed as well. Note: Do not loosen the 10mm head bolts on the solenoid body. Only loosen the 8mm head bolts.

I actually went through this. 1st problem tranny started leaking, crack in the case cause by the snap ring, snap ring failed causing just about failure of the transmission, but right about the same time, ive noticed delays in shift from park to revers or drive, only right after starting the truck warm or cold. Had the issue serviced with the snap ring- new case, shift kit and a clutch kit. Still had the issue with delay in shifting. Didnt have the transmission work done at Ford, this shop doesnt know what is causing the delay, but what you posted right there sounds about right. Although, it hasnt been doing it that often anymore, sometimes even rarely. I dont know if line pressure equaled out because of the shift kit, which that is why it was installed. If its getting worse I would go with the message and replace that solenoid. I might go in the same route too because ive had the same exact symptoms as you. You also may want to check to make sure teh 2 problems Ive had arent linked, that it may cause the reverse snap ring to fail.

I know the had a recall or TSB for a problem with the early Torqshift. Don't remember what the exact problem was but I had my VIN ran and was told that my trans. wasn't one of the affected ones. Doesn't mean that there isn't a problem now though. Thanks for the info. I'll check it out. Other than the delay, I don't have any other issues.

Ya wish I was part of the recal, got an 05 that was out of the date range. It does sound like a line pressure problem, maybe that TSB is the way to go. But ya, if you figure it out, part from bringing it to ford or not, pass on the info!
