I had a problem of my 96 A/T killing as soon as I put it into anything other than park or neutral. I thought that the torque converter clutch may be the culpret so I put a new Torque Converter in. I now have Reverse and First but still kills as soon as put into Second or Drive??? Hoping someone out there can throw me a life vest as I am spent!:whiteflag

yo;
Was it scanned for DTCs?
do the KOEO = Key On Engine Off portion first
& Remember to have engine @ Normal Operating Temperature before doing the KEY ON ENGINE RUNNING (KOER) portion
Some possibilities:
Engine Stall During Transmission Engagement TSB 97-24-23 for 96 Bronco, 96-97 Vans & F Series, 97 Expedition, 98 Navigator, 96-97 F-53 Motorhome; "...Some vehicles may stall when the transmission is placed into gear. This may be caused by the transmission fluid filter becoming detached and/or loose..."

Filter Clip Alternative; "... have seen many threads and received many pm's as of late speaking of the stay-put filter clip used to keep the filters from falling out of the pump in the e4od. there is an alternative to using this clip. it is more expensive but also has more benefits than just using this clip. you can get a trans pan from a 03 super-duty truck. this pan has little humps in the bottom to but up against the bottom of the filter and this keeps the filter from falling down. this pan also has a drain plug and extra capacity for 1.5 more qts of fluid. this pan also allows you to use the much better elastomer gasket. it is reusable and virtually leak-proof. much better than the cork design. it does require the use of a 4x4 filter..."

No, wasn't scanned yet. just put the transmission back in yesterday and working today. Just thought that maybe someone else had experienced similar situation and could help me out. Could the filter really cause this and if I never touched the filter in the removal and replacement why would some of the symptoms go away and not have remained the same?

ok, Get it scanned somewhere for free. Post any Codes found here or do a Google on it or use the Search Function in my broncolinks.com site; type in just the P Number Code. Sometimes you need to try using an O (OH) or 0 (ZERO) if the code has that circle in it; such as P1023.

It's happened before to others here

; I've just spent over 23 hours tracking down a loose connection in my PSOM/E4OD/4WABS/PCM circuit. I'd lose my PSOM and get a ruff downshift from OD to First w/a similar drop in speed. Happened only over big bumps. So that was hard to duplicate while under da Bronco.

yo, Ok &
When you go there, make sure engine is still @ normal operating temperature so they can da KEY ON ENGINE RUNNING (KOER) portion; If there is a delay in getting it done when you go there; heat it back up again.

Shut off all accessories. Lights, etc.
Have em do the KOEO = Key On Engine Off portion first

Then the KEY ON ENGINE RUNNING (KOER) portion

He has a 96. Should be OBDII.. Makes code pulling easy if you can buy/borrow a reader.
