did yours fall off? sounds like an internal issue.
well it was working, forward and reverse worked fine and then a couple of hours later i tried again and it just rolled like it was in neutral, i drained it and changed the filter, someone told me to check the linkage, i dont get why it would just stop working like it did and when i had the engine out we moved the tranny alot, jacking it up and such. i think i may have knocked it loose when i started the new engine, it shook a awful lot .

I can't tell you how to seat a torque converter on that transmission, it's probably very similar to my 4r100 but I don't want to give you bad info. Your pump is in the front of your transmission, you will have to use a slide hammer to get it out, it's not bad and with my 4r100 the cheap advance auto parts "bondo" brand dent puller threaded right up in it where as my expensive slide hammer wouldn't have worked without some welding.

I can check my book and see what it says, but you should be aware that it is not the same transmission.

try reseating the torque converter (if we can figure out how) but it's sounding worse and worse for your poor transmission man.

"The proper way to make sure the converter is seated properly is that the converter HAS to be pulled into the flexplate once tranny is bolted up. If it's not done this way, you risk damaging the converter and the pump."
- Sackman9975

this is what he told me before i asked him how to do it. i dont know what the flexplate is, but i know i didnt do this step. goober do you know what he is talking bout?

the flex plate is mounted to the back of the motor, its the big round thing with all kinds of teeth...some people mistake it for a fly wheel (that would be a manual trans) did you take your trans out?

The AOD flexplate (which is from the grand marquis) is different than the E4OD flexplate.

Did you swap these before the install?
