Basically the "problem" is my stupidity I guess.....

Here is what happened:

(this was all done with transmission in the truck, working underneath)

The solenoid pack went out on my transmission and I bought a new pack.
While removing the solenoid pack I damaged the gasket under it so it had to be replaced.

I removed the solenoid pack, the 2 valve bodies and the sheet metal separator plate.

There is a gasket on each side of the steel plate and the "top" gasket stayed in place holding in most check balls (that I assume are in there).

When dropping the steel plate there were 3 check balls on it, 2 nylon & 1 steel ball.

I installed the new gasket and bolted everything back together and all was good........

Till clean-up.

I find a small blue spring under the truck during clean-up and have no idea where it fell out of.

I am hoping/guessing it goes above one of the check balls but not sure which one. (I would guess the steel one?)

Does anyone know where the spring may have came from?

The truck drove fine if you put it in drive and shifted through all gears properly but if you put it in low gear manually it would just....well I am not sure what it was doing to be honest.
It felt like it was trying to go forward and reverse at the same time but went nowhere.

Now the truck seems to start out in 2nd gear once it warms up.
The first 2-3 miles it starts in first and operates normally but after 3 miles or so it feels like it's starting in 2nd gear and then shifts normally after that.

If I can't fix this then the truck is getting sold as is but I would like to fix it and get more money out of it (going towards a diesel truck).

Any Idea's??

The spring is about 1/8" in diameter and 3/4" long if that helps at all.

Ok..

I guess nobody knows anything that would help me, I appreciate everyone reading the question though.

I stumbled across Racer X's e4od rebuild post on here and thought he may be able to help as he seems to know the tranny inside and out.

It was worth a try.

Thanks anyways.

I'll check back daily to see if anyone knows anything.

Thanks

Thanks for the info Track speeder.

Although I am not that knowledgeable about the transmission and am not sure what your talking about.

Are you talking about the steel check ball that came down with the steel separator plate? When I dropped the steel plate there was a steel check ball and 2 nylon balls..... You think it goes above the steel ball or are you talking about another spot?

Track speeder.....

I found a large blown apart schematic of the E4od and found the parts you mentioned and it is where I thought. The schematic shows the spring above the steel check ball so it confirmed that is where I thought it probably went.

Thanks VERY much for your help and soon as I get some time I will pull it back apart and replace the spring. Thank you again.
