    The tranny can be fixed. http://www.lincolnvscadillac.com/forum/showthread.php?80761-5R55-Repairs The AC is probably a bad fill valve.

    Wow. That video is overkill. You just need to replace the servos. There's no reason to sleeve.

    5R55 Repairs

    I'm not aware of the fix. I used the first revision and I'm going strong after 50k. I do not think the rev issue you're seeing, Joe, is related to the servos. However, this is the internet and there are armies of people willing to tell me I'm wrong. My first thought is the spring in the valve...

    Whoops. Solenoid only should be close to $1000. The part from a dealer is going to be $400 and another $100 in fluid - $500 is too low.

    Pics or it didn't happen. And I've gotten to be quite good at diagnosing 5r55's over the internet; the friction lines are bullet-proof.

    The trans did not need to be replaced and the problems that you had with your original will return with this one. Only the solenoid problem was fixed; a $300 part. The servos and spring are just as weak as they ever were.

    You'll need some frinkin' huge extensions. That's about it. I eyeballed the .030". You're creating a seating channel for the viton rings to sit on the pistons. I could do this job in about four hours now; with no complications. You should plan a full weekend. The exhaust will cause problems.

    1. That's a countersink bit. You want .030" relief and you want something in the 80° range. 2. I would hate to hear of any man dropping his balls. Good luck doing it in the car; it's well worth the removal. Your clutch spring will fall out and also the rubber valve on top of it. It's in one of...
