Transmission Fluid Cooler and Tubes
When internal wear or damage has occurred in the transmission, metal particles, clutch plate material or band material may have been carried into the torque converter (7902) and OTA fluid cooler. These contaminants are a major cause of recurring transmission troubles and must be removed from the system before the transmission is put back into service. Replace the OTA fluid cooler.
The OTA cooler must be replaced under the following conditions:
Evidence of transmission assembly or fluid contamination is found due to the following transmission or converter failure modes:
(*). major metallic failure.
(*). multiple clutches or clutch plate failures.
(*). sufficient component wear which results in metallic contamination.
Inspect cooler tubes and fittings for damage and leaks. Tighten fittings to specification. If leak persists, replace fittings and tubes as necessary.
After the fittings have been tightened to specification, add MERCON® V Automatic Transmission Fluid XT-5-QM or equivalent meeting Ford MERCON® V specification as necessary and check for fluid leaks.
Three Way Catalytic Converter (TWC)
THE NORMAL OPERATING TEMPERATURE OF THE EXHAUST SYSTEM IS VERY HIGH. NEVER WORK AROUND OR ATTEMPT TO SERVICE ANY PART OF THE EXHAUST SYSTEM UNTIL IT HAS COOLED. USE SPECIAL CARE WHEN WORKING AROUND THE THREE WAY CATALYTIC CONVERTER (TWC) (5E212). THESE UNITS HEAT TO A HIGH TEMPERATURE AFTER ONLY A SHORT PERIOD OF ENGINE OPERATION.
1. Raise vehicle. Refer to «Section 00-02».
2. Disconnect heated oxygen sensor electrical connectors.
3. Remove the retaining bolts at each three-way catalytic converter flange.
4. Remove the three-way catalytic converter to exhaust manifold retaining nuts.
5. Slide the exhaust inlet pipe (5246) rearward until the three way catalytic converters can be removed. It may be necessary to obtain sufficient clearance to separate the three way catalytic converter at exhaust manifold connection(s).
6. Discard exhaust converter outlet gaskets (5E241) and any damaged parts.
