AOD Throttle Cable Fix and Adjust
FORD AOD Automatic Overdrive
Cable adjustment is clearly the most confusing and overlooked step involving proper installation of your automatic transmission.
In most cases, amateur (and many pro) installers simply leave this
critical cable either disconnected or improperly adjusted.
The result: clutch damage and ultimately total transmission destruction.
In some cases cable seems to be adjusted properly, however, pressure is incorrect …. and results in shift problems after driving for a few months.
Results: Fluid is dark & smells burnt. 3rd and 4th gear clutches are burnt and will cause erratic shifts or no 3 / 4 gears at all.
So, be sure from the start that cable is adjusted properly and shift points are where they should be.
If unit is returned for warranty repair, it is very easy for us to determine what caused failure.
We will work with you to repair unit at lowest cost possible, but it will not be repaired for free, nor will we cover any shipping cost, so please be careful to adjust TV properly!
