Cd4e Meenan transmission
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

1989 Mazda MX-6 F2 Head Gasket Time Lapse
'89 mx6 I've owned since '00. The F2; not the F2T. The oil & water were
mixing through the head gasket, so I replaced it. I decided to record it
just to keep me from dragging my feet too much. Thanks for watching. Enjoy.
Rislone Tech Minute: Transmission Stop Slip with Leak Repair
Most transmission stop slips just thicken your transmission fluid, which is
the most complex fluid in your car. It has to reduce friction enough to
prevent wear and control temperature while at the same time allowing some
friction to prevent the internal clutch material from slipping. This same
fluid must operate at low and high temperature extremes.
Rislone Transmission Stop Slip with Leak Repair (p/n 4502) contains a
special blend of viscosity improvers, anti-wear friction modifiers and
extreme pressure performance additives to solve most transmission problems.
These additives reduce rough shifting and friction, while eliminating slip,
controlling temperature, and repairing shudder, chatter and whining. Use to
top off existing fluid or add a bottle when changing fluid.
