    2001 5.4L F150

    Hiya folks,
    My kid just picked up a 2001 F150 5.4L for cheap. We were driving today and I could feel the trans slipping a little. I'd like to go into the computer and increase the pressures if possible. Being a GM guy(been programming GM stuff since the early 90's and just about everything the aftermarket has to offer as well), I have very little experience with ford programming and that was back in A9L eec4 stuff using an add on chip and programmer from sct I think. Long gone from a break in and 3 laptops stolen. :(
    I've been doing a little reading tonight over at moates and a couple other links. It looks like he has a cheap adaptor to plug into the computer. Is there such thing as a cheap software package so I can adjust a few things regarding the transmission stuff? I'm not looking to do any power programming nor real-time like the quarterhorse. I do have a burn2 so if anyone here can offer any advice of the cheapest way I can accomplish this hardware/software wise, it would be greatly appreciated. Again, this isn't a hot rod, just trying to help my kid avoid a new transmission for a while so he can save up for the inevitable.

    Looks like I need the FA adaptor from moates and the FE cable to make life a bit easier. Does the FA adaptor stay on the vehicle or is that just the interface that will program the stock ecu?

    not to talk you out of tuning it, but doesn't that AOD thing have adjustable clutch bands? they might never have been touched. might want to do a fluid change, clean the crap out the valve body, and adjust the bands if it has any. shouldn't take more than an hour.

    Thanks for the reply, I know absolutely nothing about ford trans so I will ask one of my customers that owns a trans shop.

    Pretty sure the ECM will look for the shift to be completed in a certain amount of time, if it doesnt see it it will try and increase the shift pressure itself until it either maxes out giving a hard jolting shift time it reaches maximum amount it can. also when do you feel it slipping I know alot of 4r70 had problems with convertor lockup shudder I had a 98 F150 that had that problem.
