Its default position is on, so that is normal, in most cases just leave it alone everything will be fine for normal driving, the only time you want to turn off the overdrive is in hilly road conditions where your speeds are constantly changing from above 45 down to 30 or slower, back and forth, up and down. One thing to remember about these transmissions is they do require more maintance, so if you just acquired this unit I would service the trans right away then again every 20K down the road, and you might consider adding some LubeGuard for Ford transmissions during a service.

There may or may not be a screen in front of it, but there will be a wire running across the middle of the opening. If there is any dirt, oil, water on the MAF it will cause your issue and not set a code.
What you had going on with the EGR system was probably not related to this issue, but would affect your emissions. Jason answered 11 years ago. I owned an crown vic interceptor which had the exact problem. It would "stumble" sometimes at idle or like you said, pulling out. Normally I would gas it to overcome the stumbling up to 10mph or so.
I still had the problem. After further inspection of the throttle body, it seemed the catch where the diaphragm would stop the valve travel was gapped too much. Without applying gas pedal pressure the throttle body "should" maintain proper idle. For some reason our cars were notorious for stumbling. I know it sounds like jerry rigging but its effective.
But I always suspected one other thing, the coil packs. You have two of them, and I have heard sometimes they lose idle charge capacity which would produce improper spark, thus also creating the stumbling.

After market part not installed right by the past owner. I had it completely rebuilt at the transmission shop with the city PD contract. They can rebuild this trans in their sleep.
Sold car. The passengers side was leaking and scored the axle shaft. Replaced axle seal. Replaced trans assembley with rebuilt unit. Could have gotten a 3 year, unlimited mileage warranty with a remanufacturer but I found this out after the fact. Clutch material was in bottom of pan. Everything now great except for a soft shift going into lockup. Then it goes into neutral, whereupon frequent high reving of the engine is required to get it into the final shift.Transmission Fluid and Filter change.
This is a general procedure for changing the fluid and filter in your transmission, it is not intended to be all encompassing, but rather a general outline of what is involved.
You will need the following items:. ATF Mercon V is recomended. I use clear plastic. Removing the old fluid. Now run both hoses into the empty jug, and set it inside the right inner fender on top of the upper control arm. You are ready to start the engine and use the transmission to pump out the old fluid, and flush the system. Pay attention to witch hose the fluid comes out of so you can purge all the old fluid out when the job is nearly done.
Draining the converter. Now that the pan is empty, it is a perfect time to drain the converter, and service the filter if you are doing that.
Set the parking brake, chalk the rear wheels front and back sides, jack up the car under the large front cross-member, and place jack-stands securely under the vehicle on the frame.
It will hold between 6 and 8 qts. While the converter is draining, you can remove the pan bolts and pan from the transmission and service the filter. There will be a small quantity of ATF left in the pan, so use caution, but it will not be full.
Change the filter, and clean the pan throughly. Set the gasket on the pan lip, and using two bolts set the pan into position and hold it in place using one on either side at opposite corners, finger tight!
Now loosely install the remaining pan bolts into the transmission. Once all bolts are installed, working in a cris-cross pattern, torque the bolts to ft-lbs. Reinstall the torque converter drain plug, and torque to ft-lbs.The 4R70W automatic transmission in the Ford 4. And so, you may be asking yourself: How can I tell if my automatic transmission needs an overhaul?
How can I tell if it's just a shift solenoid that's bad?

One, the most common, is caused by some sort of electrical failure and which causes the vehicle's computer to command the automatic transmission to stay in 2nd gear no matter what the vehicle's speed.
Each one of the above conditions has a specific cause and in the next sections, we'll explore this a bit more in-depth. The 4R70W automatic transmission in your Ford car, pick-up or SUV is electronically controlled via several solenoids and sensors, all of which live inside the transmission well, all except the vehicle speed sensor.

I bought Ford victoria crown model from an individual on Dec.
It was police car. After I bought the car within a months time I hit another vehicle. I lost control and the brake didn't work. It didn't stop by hitting once, it was amazing hitting back again and again. My car or even the other car didn't have any body damage and after 1 hour I started driving and on my way home the same thing happened. I got out of the road but no accident.
I used the car for a taxi cab. Again I have another problem with this car. I had to take a customer to the airport and before I got there, smoke was coming out and I stopped the car in the airport garage. This time it became completely out of service and I had the vehicle towed to the garage. The result as the mechanic tested said the transmission is totally out of use and need another one. Again two months back while driving I lost control of the brake and stop out of the road.
Recently on Sunday Dec. While driving I couldn't control the brake and the vehicle accelerated on its own.
So, I hit the fence on the road and the vehicle was damaged. The vehicle was towed to the garage and when the mechanic tested he couldn't find anything, even he did a road test.
I was advised this vehicle is dangerous if I start driving. I can submit all my expenses which I paid for the maintenance if possible. Thanks to a friend who gave me information to check online if this vehicle model is recall. See all problems of the Ford Crown Victoria. Police interceptor lost all forward gears at highway speed in heavy traffic. Vehicle has cracked forward clutch cylinder. Vehicle was subject to satisfaction campaign 06b36 for a calibration update and subsequent warranty extension of mileage only for the forward clutch cylinder.
Transmission 4r70w, pkg-bl tag - 5w7pea. Transmission will not shift into overdrive. Failure occurred at 50, miles. Police package-TN. Car was put in park and after about 8 minutes, slipped into gear and moved forward. Between mph transmission will buckle and or shutter with no warning. Cause unknown. Dealer notified. When I entered my vehicle and started it I attempted to place the transmission into drive. The selector lever just hunted but could not find the proper gear.
It only takes a minute to sign up. I have an 07 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor.
It has around miles and ive had it a year. Lately it has started to die when I make a right hand turn. What I mean by that is my foot will be pressing the gas pedal but it doesn't seem to respond so I cannot accelerate through a right hand turn. It catches after the turn is complete and begins to rev up again. Its almost like the fuel pump cuts out or something but it doesn't run rough. Also another new problem that started at same time is car slipping out of gear when cold.
The selector is still on D but the transmission will slip and engine will rev in neutral for a couple seconds and then it starts to catch. That happens whenever it is cold now.
