Delayed engagement Archives - Transmission Digest
What We Do for a Buck

One of our accounts brought in a 2007 Ford F-450 with a 6.0 diesel engine and a 5R110W TorqShift transmission, complaining of a delayed engagement in reverse. The driver also complained that if he decided to accelerate hard just before coming to a stop, the transmission would neutralize and then engage harshly.

Morning Sickness – Well, Sort Of

At ATSG we have received several calls on the 5R55N/W/S transmission in the new Lincoln LS, Jaguar, Ford Explorer or Mountaineer concerning a complaint of delayed or no engagement. The condition occurs most often during first morning startup, under extreme cold-temperature conditions, and the transmission may engage if the throttle is snapped wide open.
