Angry seems E40D's are c**p will any other tranny work?

I had the tranny sensor mod replaced last month and was running great. Went out to the gun range today and on the way back was going up incline on freeway ambient temp was around 80- 90 degrees and my OD light started blinking again like it did before I replaced the sensor mod and the tranny temp was at 170 and climbing to 171, 172 ect. also it was shifting hard but would shift into all gears. I spent $3600.00 on a rebuilt TC and tranny about 5500 miles ago and have just been towing my 5th wheel a little bit like 3000 miles. I been reading a lot of you have been having problems with the E40D also. I was told I could get a rebuilt from Ford with a 100000 mile warrenty for around $3000 installed but????? What's up with these trannys and is there a different one we can get for our trucks that would be more reliable then the E40D?

Get a Brian's Truck Shop (BTS)-built E4OD. Yes, they are not cheap, but you only have to spend the money once. Cheers!

Try the BPS. Barometric pressure sensor located under the dash.
Caused my hard shifting and was even better after changing speed sensor in rear end.

Never knew about the barometric pressure sensor, how important is it for shifting and performance?

The code my truck through says I have a clutch slipping. Don't know if it's in the imput or output. Suspect the TC but won't know for sure till the tranny is tore down.
