This video is of a CD4E transaxle. This transmission is used in a variety of applications including Ford Escapes, Mercury Mariner ,Mazda Tributes, and a variety of passenger cars. The CD4E transmission is used because it is a compact design that fits many front wheel drive applications. The CD4E transmission has five sets of clutches, two sprags and one band. Many of the problems we see here at Meenan Transmission that occur with the CD4E transmissions are control related. This transmission has a control solenoid pack that contains multiple solenoids that control shift functions, pressure rise, and torque converter lock up functions. This solenoid pack can malfunction and this can cause some drivability concerns. It can also cause a malfunction indicator light to come on or the over drive light to blink. The other more common control related problem is with the pressure regulator section of the valve body. This occurs over time and can lead to a condition where line pressure can go beyond normal and acceptable levels. This over pressure condition can cause internal parts failure. This will likely require removal of the transmission and disassembly for full evaluation. Some of the parts that are prone for failure the forward/direct clutch drum and the overdrive band. When we rebuild CD4E at Meenan Transmissions we take all steps necessary to ensure that a repeat occurrence of these failures can't take place by performing control system modifications that address the route cause of the parts failure. CD4E transmissions after they are rebuilt and modified have proven to be a trouble free reliable transmission and can provide years of trouble free service.

Cloquet Automotive CD4E Transmission Rebuild (Part 1) - Identify and Clean
This video was recorded to provide people with a better look at what
exactly goes into a transmission overhaul/rebuild here at Cloquet
Automotive. The transmission being rebuilt is a CD4E out of a 2005 Ford
Escape with a 3.0L engin. Bruce explains steps along the way, and the 6
hour build is time lapsed into 3 watchable segments. Enjoy, and be sure
to check out Part 2 soon!
Debras 2003 Mazda Tribute transmission rebuild
The forward / direct drum broke at the snap ring groove. A common issue
with this trans. There is a valve body update to lower the pressure that is
applied to this snap ring. That failure lead to the rest of the damage in
Transmission Solenoid Testing (Ohms Law) - Transmission Repair
Transmission Solenoid Testing. Here I use Ohms Law for testing. I believe
that this is the only way to test your solenoids on or off the vehicle.
Remember that the solenoids fail under LOAD! So just Ohm testing on its own
is not really accurate. Other tests can be done, but if you just own a
VoltOhmeter, that should be all you would need to perform your testing.
Voltage drop testing is also accurate but you also need to put your
component under load.
Ohms Law, Learn it, make it your own.
Voltage Divided by Ohms equals Amps...
4L60E Transmission Teardown Inspection - Transmission Repair
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.
