Our 5R55S Transmission Upgrades

The solenoid pack, commonly responsible for electrical shift related issues in this family, has been completely remanufactured in-house, including disassembly, cleaning, and testing independently.

To prevent overdrive planet failure due to lack of lubrication and to increase durability, the planets have been rebuilt and TIG welded.

To combat erratic shifting due to high wear, the servo and servo pin have been realigned and modified using inhouse custom tooling and bushings.

The completely remanufactured pump, with a new pump cover bushing machined in place and a new flow control valve, has been assembled in a custom alignment fixture to provide consistent internal pressures, improved lubrication, and eliminate noise, slipping, and delayed engagement.

To prevent torque converter vibration and damage, we’re provided, installed, and aligned a flex plate adapter.

The pump also features a custom-spec front stator bushing and a new rear bushing to better support the input shaft and improve lubrication control.

Fully tested on our custom-built, custom-programmed dynamometers with Synthetec ATF, the 5R55S/W is cold-, hot-, load-, and road-tested.

Every transmission is cold-and hot-tested using a proprietary dynamometer testing program that includes fully synthetic automatic transmission fluid and a filtration system.

5R55S Frequently Asked Questions

Initially featured in the 2003 Ford Thunderbird, the 5R55S transmission provided a high-performance option for the car, with the SelectShift providing manual-shifting performance in an automatic transmission. With five gears, it featured advanced options in performance and fuel efficiency as the first five-speed automatic used by a domestic manufacturer.

The 5R55 series of five-speed automatic transmissions were mechanically similar but had a range of different features based on the different models. The W model had a wide shift and was used in trucks and SUVs, while the S model featured a synchronic shift and was used in performance cars.

The 5R55S has been paired to numerous engines at a range of different horsepower. There have been issues with turbochargers or superchargers causing problems, but in non-turbo engines, That being said, field reports mention topping out between 450-500 horsepower, though some non-OEM transmissions for sale claim numbers closer to 1000.

Find the T-30 plug on the drain pan and remove it without removing the drain plug. Install the filling nipple, place a 3/8” hose on it, then use a suction gun to fill the transmission. Remove the hose and allow the engine to idle 5-10 minutes to auto-correct to the appropriate level.

5R55S History & Information

The 5R55 transmission lineup includes a series of four transmissions that are very similar mechanically but have different features to work with a wider range of vehicles from luxury to off-road performance. The line was started with the Ford C3 transmission class, which has branched into a number of strong, effective transmission options. The C3 transmission was developed and implemented in the early 1970s as a lightweight three-speed automatic for small cars such as the Ford Pinto and performance cars such as the Ford Mustang and Ford Thunderbird.

It was succeeded initially by the A4LD, which added overdrive gear. This was quickly followed by the 4R44E, 4R55E, and 5R44E in the middle of the 1990s, which allowed the transmission to be used in 4WD platforms with an updated tail shaft housing, as well as the more traditional rear-wheel drivetrain. However, it didn't take long for Ford to eye up the 5-speed automatic transmissions coming out of the import market. This resulted in the launch of the 5R55 transmission lineup, which consisted of the 5R55S, 5R55W, 5R55N, and 5R55E transmissions. The name of each transmission refers to the number of gears first, that it's primarily a rear-wheel-drive second, the 550 lb-ft of torque handling capability third, and the specific model last. The first model, 5R55E, refers to the electronic shifting controls as compared to more traditional hydraulic options, the 5R55N for nonsynchronous, the 5R55S for synchronous, and the 5R55W for wide.

This lineup started with the 5R55E, which featured more precise computer controls to handle the additional forward gear. The 5R55N was built for luxury car lineups, including the Jaguar S-Type and Lincoln LS. The 5R55S appeared in performance car lineups, including the Ford Thunderbird and Ford Mustang, providing options for a paddle or similar manual-style shifting options with Ford's SelectShift feature. The 5R55W featured a wide shift for off-road vehicles such as the Ford Explorer, Mercury Mountaineer, Lincoln Aviator, and Ford Ranger versus the S's synchronic shift by adding a different overdrive planet gear ratio. This transmission is commonly mounted to the BW4418 transfer case.

The length of time that the transmission has been in service is a good indicator that it will perform well and has only a few problems, a bonus if you're having to change the transmission on your existing vehicle. A longitudinally-mounted transmission, the 5R55 does well with a transmission cooler to help keep it operating at cooler temperatures, a worthy upgrade if you've already got the transmission pulled anyway. Gear ratios will vary in the second and fifth gears, with a respective lineup of 3.22, 2.41, and 2.29, 1.54, 1.0 and 0.75, and 0.71 going from first to fifth in the W and S models respectively.
