What the? 01 E40D help
Well, not sure what's up here. Came home from work yestorday. There's a highway crossing that needs a bit of humpf to get across. Something didn't feel right. Then at other stop signs, it isn't shifting from 1st to 2nd. Doesn't happend all the time. Figured I had some time to check it out. Today went for a long trip. Now is happening allot, 80% of the time, and now the OD light is flashing. Other shifts are now being effected. Feels like a slight clutch vibration from 1st to 2nd. Other gear shift transitions fine, but some times delayed. Very slow take off, still happends, hard take offs, still happends. But as said, both at about 80% of the time. Was just serviced at dealer in Feb.
Only change's in the time I've had it back from the shop is did Ford AIS and CCV mods two weeks ago. About a month and half ago, put the banks power pack chip back in (they say 105hp).
1- Did I hurt it by taking off to hard to often?
2- As some know, I was in a big front end hit last year. Trans cooler smashed and leaked. Do not see any fluid leaks. Checked fluid, looks clean and full. Could something have happend to the trans at inpact and very hard stop?
P.S. Trans gauge has not worked sence hit. I think it's wiring, but?
At a loss here. Have ScanGauge II, and no codes shown / saved. Will go to Ford Monday, but a bit hurting for the weekend, and want to know what others think or know about this condition.
