Title: 1999 Bounder transmission problem
Post by: anshood on October 02, 2017, 09:36:36 AM
I noticed my Ford F53  1999 Bounder motorhome transmision slow to get going and sort of stalling and when accelerating somewhat of a jerking motion .After shifting to 2nd gear does fine. Just slow jerking start.
Any suggestions.

Have you checked tranny fluid level? And has it ever been changed since 1999?  Probably small odds this is the problem, but its an easy place to start.

I suspect you have  a Ford 4EOD transmission, I had one in a 1990's van once that had a similar issue, changing the transmission fluid and transmission filter would solve the problem for 25,000 - 30,000 miles then it would come back.  I would change them out again and the problem would go away.  I did that 3 or 4 times before selling it.

p.s. google says the 4EOD was beefed up and renamed the 4R100 to match Fords newer transmission naming scheme in '97

I plan changing fluid and start there.
Thanks for the info.
