Replaced my valve body gasket on my Ford Explorer today. Problems shifting, had to manually drop into 1st to take off. Couldn’t go over 72 mph with it slipping. Overdrive acting up. I’d been babying this problem for several years, and it was getting worse.
Looking at the worn out disintegrating gasket – it’s amazing it worked at all.
Tested two 5 mile stretches at 80+ mph, multiple crisp launches.
It’s awesome how YouTube provides guidance on so much stuff. Definitely how I learned how to do THIS repair.
Kuddos to explorerforum.com for the information to diagnosis the problem and the solution.
