Did you use the updated main control gaskets?
Is the trans full of fluid?
Did you remove all the debris from the old gasket?

We need some more info, 3.0? 4.0? 5R55? 5R44? 4X2? 4X4?

i took out old gaskets and brought them to tranny shop they matched them up exactly.

yes i put 5qts new fluid back.

yes i cleaned out it was pretty clean tranny was worked on befor going by the new gasket that was in tranny not a ford gasket.

Sounds maybe the gear selector in the VB was not in the correct spot when you installed it compaired to the shifter.

4r44e should be the trans for the 3.0. Wasn't aware these had the same problems as the pre-03-04 5r44e and 5r55e. Valve body separator gasket, solenoids and I would update to a Sonnax spring (and possibly a shift kit while you are in there). If your clutches aren't going, then you should be good to go.

If you have 3.0, it should be 4r44e or a 5r44e depending on the production date.
