Have you ever felt the subtle anxiety of transmission issues lurking in the background as you're cruising in your 2018-2020 Ford F150? If you're nodding your head in agreement, you're certainly not alone. In today's blog, we'll be discussing the intricacies of F150 transmissions, spotlighting a common headache – the infamous CDF drum leak. However, we're not just here to address this issue. We're here to introduce a dynamic solution that will redefine your entire driving experience with the all-new BD Diesel Transmission Packages. These High-Performance Transmission Kits not only eliminate the familiar problems associated with the F150 transmissions, but offer improved performance and longevity for your custom truck build.

2018-2020 F150 BD Diesel Transmission Packages

It's no secret that the factory-installed transmission equipped on your 2018-2020 F150 is prone to leakage caused by the CDF drum. When the CDF drum develops a leak, the transmission fluid rapidly escapes from the drum's housing which leads to a ton costly hassles down the road. Fortunately, BD Diesel has the solution with their complete lineup of Transmission Packages for the 2018-2020 F150s. To start out, we'll be checking out the BD Diesel 4WD 3.5L Transmission Package; however, it is important to note that this is product is available for more than just one F150 configuration. You can find the transmission that's designed for your F150 model in the tagged products down below. The BD Diesel 10R80 RoadMaster Transmissions feature a redesigned CDF drum equipped with a unique retaining feature that prevents the sleeve failure commonly seen on OEM units. This ensures consistent operation of the transmission, avoiding issues like erratic shifting, overheating, leaks, and more. That's not all, the RoadMaster Transmissions also come standard with a modified valve body which increases line pressure by roughly 30%, helping further optimize the shifting performance of the system. This provides firmer engagement of the clutches, seamless transition between gears, and a reduced chance of gear slippage even when you're out pushing things to the limit.

The BD Diesel Transmission Packages don't just stop at improved performance either. Each 10R80 RoadMaster comes equipped with brand-new clutches and steels to ensure a high level of quality, reliability, and consistent performance each time you set off for adventure. You'll also benefit from the deep sump transmission oil pan equipped on each BD Diesel Transmission, providing 2 extra quarts of fluid capacity over the factory system to help regulate operating temperatures. Finally, an easy-to-reach drain plug allows for simple flushing of the fluid, making your maintenance processes a breeze. You'll even be able to add a temperature sensor to keep tabs on the transmission's performance if you so desire.
