E4OD hunting

I have a 97 ford with the 7.3 4x4, the tranny was rebuild about a year ago with all upgraded parts and should be bulletproof. It sat for about 6 months, and now the tranny is hunting in the gears. Any ideas?

A speed switch can do similar things when it is goes out. Make you go in and out of over drive. Cheap and easy fix to try.

Automatic Transmission Parts, Makco Distributing, Inc.
Quantity in Basket: none
Code: D36410C
Price: $32.22

Speed Switch, E4OD Manual position lever, PRND21 Switch, 1997-UP

You can search images for the location of this switch - plenty of info on these, down on the side of the tranny.

I have had a few of these go out on me - bad luck I guess. Even at a tranny shop I do not think it would too much - there is not much labor to it.

Your fluid & filter are both good?

fluid level and condition is ok. The truck sat for about a year, not 6 months. I'm going to clean the above mentioned sensor, see how that goes.

It developped a new problem too, when changing gears Park is ok, going into Reverse is ok, you can feel the truck engage and try to move the truck, shifts into Neutrel fine, but when going into Drive there is no lurch of push feeling, but once you give it some throttle it sluggishly starts going.
