6R140 Automatic Transmission Lubricant Passage Repair

 

PROGRAM TERMS

This program will be in effect through May 31, 2014.  There is no mileage limit for this program.

 

URGENCY / EXPIRATION DATE

This Customer Satisfaction Program has an expiration date of May 31, 2014 to encourage dealers and customers to have this service performed as soon as possible.

We recommend dealers utilize their FSA VIN list name and address (available on November 25, 2013) to contact customers with affected vehicles.  This will help minimize the number of vehicles that exhibit symptoms of noise and vibration and may require a more extensive repair.

 

AFFECTED VEHICLES

Certain 2014 model year F-Super Duty 2-wheel drive 137” wheelbase vehicles with an Automatic

Transmission built at the Kentucky Truck Assembly Plant from July 15, 2013 through October 16, 2013.  Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS.  In addition, for a list of vehicles assigned to your dealership, visit https://web.fsavinlists.dealerconnection.com.  This information will be available on November 19, 2013.

 

REASON FOR THIS PROGRAM

In the affected vehicles, a passage in the transmission case that directs transmission fluid to the bushing for the driveshaft slip yoke was not manufactured correctly.  A lack of fluid at the driveshaft slip yoke bushing will result in noise, vibration, and premature wear of the extension housing bushing and driveshaft slip yoke.

 

SERVICE ACTION

Before demonstrating or delivering any of the vehicles involved in this program, dealers are to repair the transmission as directed in the technical information, Attachment III.  This service must be performed on all affected vehicles at no charge to the vehicle owner.

 

OWNER NOTIFICATION MAILING SCHEDULE

Owner Letters are expected to be mailed the week of December 2, 2013.  Dealers should repair any affected vehicles that arrive at their dealerships, whether or not the customer has received a letter.

ATTACHMENT III

CERTAIN 2014 MODEL YEAR 2-WHEEL DRIVE 137” WHEELBASE F-SUPER DUTY VEHICLES — 6R140 AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION LUBRICANT PASSAGE REPAIR

 

OVERVIEW

In all of the affected vehicles, a passage in the transmission case that directs transmission fluid to the bushing for the driveshaft slip yoke was not completed. A lack of fl uid at the driveshaft slip yoke bushing will result in noise, vibration, and premature wear of the extension housing bushing and driveshaft slip yoke.

 

SERVICE PROCEDURE

  1. With the vehicle in NEUTRAL, position it on a hoist. For additional information, refer to Workshop Manual (WSM) Section 100-02.
  2. Temporarily support the transmission with a suitable heavy duty transmission jack.
    • Place the jack so the fl uid pan does not support the weight of the transmission.
  3. NOTE: If the extension housing does not require replacement, inspect the O-ring seal and replace only if damaged.

Remove the transmission extension housing. For additional information, refer to WSM Section 307-01B.

  1. If vehicle mileage is 20 km (12 mi) or less, visually inspect the driveshaft slip yoke journal for
    discoloration and/or bushing material transfer. See Figure 1.

    • If discoloration and/or bushing material transfer is evident, proceed to Step 3b.
    • If discoloration and/or bushing material transfer is not evident proceed to Step 4.
  2. If Vehicle mileage is 21 km (13 mi) or more, or if discoloration and/or bushing material transfer is evident, discard the extension housing and replace the driveshaft slip yoke and universal joint. For additional information, refer to WSM Section 205-01. Once completed, proceed to Step 4.

DRIVESHAFT SLIP YOKE JOURNALFIGURE 1

 

  1. NOTICE: When supporting the transmission output shaft, use a rubber pad or block of wood to prevent damage to the shaft.

Support the rear of the transmission output shaft with a jack stand and remove the transmission jack that was positioned in Step 2.

  1. On vehicles equipped with a gasoline engine, remove the exhaust Y-Pipe. For additional information, refer to WSM Section 309-00.
  2. Remove the fl uid pan, gasket, and fi lter. For additional information refer to WSM Section 307-01B.
  3. Disconnect the seven solenoid electrical connectors, Transmission Fluid Temperature (TFT) Sensor, Output Shaft Speed (OSS) sensor, and Turbine Shaft Speed (TSS) sensor. Position the wiring harness aside. See Figure 2.

SOLENOID ELECTRICAL CONNECTORSFIGURE 2

 

  1. NOTICE: Do not bend the manual valve rod clip when removing the manual valve rod. If the manual valve rod clip is bent back to remove the manual valve rod instead of sliding it off, the manual valve rod clip will become permanently distorted causing total loss of transmission control or transmission failure. If the manual valve rod clip is bent, install a new manual valve rod clip.

Remove the manual valve rod. Pull the manual valve rod clip tab out of the Transmission Range (TR) sensor, slide the manual valve rod clip off of the manual valve rod and remove the manual valve rod from the TR sensor and the manual valve. See Figure 3.
