Transmission Repair - 4R44E Transmission Teardown Inspection
Here we see a teardown of a 4R44E transmission of a Mazda B3000 3.0 V6.
This unit is also on the Ford Ranger and Ford Explorer. Although the unit
changes in name, they're virtually the same unit as I explain in the video.
4R44E has 4 pinion planets on the front and rear. 4R55E and 5R55E have 6
pinion planets. 5R55E has an added speed sensor and reluctor on the output
shaft for an added signal for the computer to make a 5th gear. Most of the
parts are interchangeable between the 3 including valve body. The computer
is the one responsible to make this transmission shift 5 times. The added
gear is between 1st. and 2nd. applying the overdrive band to give you that
extra gear that some call it 2nd prime.
Transmission Repair - 4L60E Transmission Teardown Inspection
On this video we can see the disassembly of a 2006 4L60E transmission. The
most common failure on these units is 3rd. clutch burn up, the reaction sun
shell and the 2-4 band. Failure on these transmissions is not necessary the
way it is treated, rather is these common or pattern failures. Valve body
ware is also another issue and can be corrected installing a correction kit
of your choice.

98 Ford Ranger running like crap
I have a 1998 Ford Ranger 3.0 4x4 ext cab. I bought the truck from a guy
who believed it had a bad cylinder, but wasn't sure. He was tired of
putting money into it and his daughter and nephew beat the truck up. I
bought it for $500. I already have a 99 Ranger 3.0 ffv 4x4 ext cab, and
figure i could maybe use this crappy one for parts for my good truck.
Anyway, I want to try to get this truck running if possible. I have been
told it may be the following: Fuel injectors, 02 Oxygen sensor, EGR??
Valve/Sensor??, fuel filter, or something wrong with some vacuum lines.
Here is a video of the motor running. It took forever to get started, had
to jump it with my good truck. The motor seems to shake alot, wants to die,
have to give it alot of gas to keep it running, and seems like there's a
knock or ticking.
The Basic Parts of an Automatic Transmission (Part 1)
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
This is part one of my front wheel drive (FWD) automatic transmission
dissection video. In this video I cover the operation of clutches, bands,
accumulators, clutch drums, the oil pump, the valve body, valves, check
balls, seals and 'o' rings, as well as the construction and function of
many of the internal hard parts of an automatic transmission. To be honest
a rear wheel drive transmission isn't much different as many of the basic
components are the same. I guess what I'm saying is that you could use the
information in this video to have a basic understanding of a rear wheel
drive automatic transmission also. It is just a basic overview of the main
components. I don't get into theory and operation so much. Just the
general operation and identification of the parts. I may make more videos
on this topic based on the comments I get so feel free to ask questions and
perhaps I'll answer them in a future video on this topic. There will also
be a separate video on the parts and operation of the torque converter as
well. When that is posted I'll post links below to that video.

Trans & Clutch 1 - Remove Transmission
This is the first in a multi-video series regarding clutch tech. The
clutch itself is a simple mechanism, but it's buried deep in the engine, so
you can't just cover the clutch. First, you have to cover how to remove
the transmission to get to it.
This project started off strange, got kind-of not-good, and then took a
turn for the worst. The typical clutch job is not as difficult as the next
video will display, but it's good this happened to me because I film this
kind of crap. If for some asinine reason you encounter the kind of failure
I experienced, you'll know what to do after the next video. Clutch
assembly will be covered in a third video.
About the car:
You saw the other assembly video. You know when I put this thing together.
You know it doesn't come out to play when it's cloudy. I've had it on the
road less than an earl change. Freshly rebuilt TRE Stage 2.5 trans with a
brand new ACT 2600 and a sprung 6-puck (MB1-XTG6) on a stock flywheel.
This is Transmission #4.
Removal and Servicing of Clutch Master Cylinder to Slave Cylinder Connections
This video demonstrates the proper techniques for disconnecting and
connecting the clutch hydraulic line at the concentric slave cylinder.
These procedures apply to clutch hydraulics on various vehicles from the
Ford, GM, Chevrolet and Dodge families.

Transmission Repair - GM 4L60-E Transmission Re-Assembly (Rebuild)
On this video we go through the re assembly of a 4L60E Transmission. I
tried to make this video shorter for you so I skipped the bushing
installation and installing the bolts on the valve body. But you can go to
the teardown video for reference on where each bolt goes, since they're
different sizes. I will make a follow up video on bushing installation.
