FORD 5R110W TorqShift

When the Park position is selected, there is no
powerflow through the transmission. The parking
pawl is engaged which locks the output shaft to the
transmission case. The engine can be started and the
ignition key can be removed.
When the Reverse position is selected, the vehicle
can be operated in a rearward direction at a reduced
gear ratio.
When the Neutral position is selected, there is no
powerflow through the transmission. The output
shaft is not held and is free to turn and the engine can
be started. This position can also be selected while
vehicle is moving, to restart the engine if that becomes
necessary.
The Overdrive position is the normal position
for most forward gear operations. The Overdrive
position provides automatic upshifts and downshifts,
apply and release of the converter clutch, and
maximum fuel economy during normal operation.
The 3rd Gear position provides third gear start
and hold, for improved traction on slippery roads.
This position can also be selected at any vehicle speed
for improved engine braking. Transmission will not
downshift if it will cause an engine overspeed
condition.
The 2nd Gear position provides second gear start
and hold, for improved traction on slippery roads.
This position can also be selected at any vehicle speed
for improved engine braking. If this position is
selected at higher speeds, the transmission will
downshift to the next lower gear, and will downshift
into second gear after the vehicle decelerates to a
vehicle speed that will not create an engine overspeed
condition.
The Manual Low Gear position provides 1st gear
operation only. This position can also be selected at
any vehicle speed to provide improved engine
braking for descending steep grades. If this position is
selected at higher speeds, the transmission will
downshift to the next lower gear, and will downshift
into first gear after the vehicle decelerates to a vehicle
speed that will not create an engine overspeed
condition.

There has also been added to the instrument cluster, a
transmission temperature gauge that we think is long
over-due, and should be on all vehicles.
