Hard/delayed/erratic shifting E4OD

I happen to have a neighbor who is head of the service department as well as a master certified Ford tech of 15+ years. I had some issues with my trans and some hard/delayed/erratic shifting. He got online and went to Fords version of Alldata and got me all the diagnostic procedures for checking the trans fluid temp sensor since I was throwing a P0713 code. Did all the tests, checked out to be the sensor, replaced it this afternoon and it's all back to normal now.

It's not all that complicated to do but you do have to drop the trans pan and removing the solenoid body makes it easier since you can do it on the bench. No special tools and it's a plug and go procedure. Also I have the part number for the sensor if anyone needs it and it is not as expensive as I thought it was going to be coming from the dealership, $18 out the door. Do not let anyone tell you you have to replace the entire soleniod body as I was told by a number of trans shops as well as some other Ford techs and some people online.

BTW this was for the truck in my sig.

My truck has been doing something similar. I have been getting a delayed 1-2 sometimes. It does not do it all the time. I did drop my pan and found more friction material in the bottom then I would have like to see . Any thoughts?

If you're getting the shifting problems and an OD light you more than likely have an internal problem (clutches or burnt converter) If you don't have the ability to read the trans codes take it somewhere, but you're prob looking at a rebuild....

Sorry for the bad news
