I put a 4BTAA in a dodge 1500. I used a A518 (46RH) trans out of a 91 D350. I have a cable hooked to the injection pump going down to the kick, and it pushs the kick down lever all the way back, but even at full throttle it will not kick down. Do I have to drop the pan and do some adjustments?

Also Ive been driving it sense Oct. last year with no problems other than it not kicking down. I live in South Jersey and we have had some pretty hot days lately and when my trans gets to about 195*F it puks trans fuild everwhere. In the winter I had it above 200 couple times and it didn't puk.

Any ideas would help thankyou.

It came out of and Ingersoll Rand Asphault roller.

I shift it into overdrive with a switch I put in the dash.

It downshifts but not as soon as I would like it to.

They has throttle pos. sensor back in 91 on them?

I thought that controlled the OD.

Thats what mine does. Thankyou I will just downshift manually I dont have a problem with that.

Do you think that it not downshifting and it puking the trans fluid can be related?

Have you heard of any type of anti foaming addtives?

I get my temp coming out of the pan.
I have an air to oil cooler in front of the radaitor. Yes it stock dipstick. There shouldnt be any water in ut. If there was it probably all gone now.

It has an engine oil cooler on the side of the block. cooled by water like the 5.9s

I calls for Dexron II but they don't make that any more and The guy at the parts store showed me the oil that replaces the Dexron II, It says what it replaces in the jug so I use that.

I know the first time that it puked it had too much fluid but not the other times.
