While Driving At Approx. 55-65 Mph In A Heavy Rain The Transmission Suddenly Quit Pulling. It Was As If The Transmission Were Shifted Into Neutral. By Turning The Overdrive Off I Was Able To Make It Home In Second Gear. I Took The Truck To Satcher Motors For Repair. They Reported That The Third And Fourth Gears Had Went Out. This Truck Has Never Pulled A Boat Or Trailer And Has Never Hauled Any Heavy Loads. This Would Seem To Me To Be A Factory Defect. I Contacted ford And Talked To Them Twice But They Offered No Assistance. The Repair Bill Was $1322.80. I Believe This To Be A Factory Defect, As I Have Heard Of Other People Having Trouble With ford Transmissions. I Believe ford Should Be Made To Repair Or Replace These Defective Transmissions At Their Expence. *ak

The Problem Started With The Transmission Slipping And The Door Ajar Chime Continuously Chimes. We Took The Truck To A Local ford Dealership, Don Davis ford 1901 N. Collins Arlington, Texas 76101 Number 817-461-1000. We Informed The Dealership Of The Trucks Problems And The Next Day They Called To Tell Us That The Door Chime Had Been Fixed But That The Transmission Needed To Be Flushed According To The Manufacturers Suggestion. We Stated That If This Would Fix The Problem To Go Ahead And Proceed. About 3 Weeks Later Billy Was On The Highway Towards Home When The Transmission In The Truck Failed He Had To Push The Truck Off The Highway And Walk To Get Help. We Took The Truck This Time To Another ford Dealer, Westway ford 801 W Airport Freeway Irving, Texas 972-256-5551, This Dealership Found The Transmission Fluid To Be Burnt. The Fluid Smelled Burnt But Was Still Red In Color Also They Found Metal Fragments In The Fluid And The Transmission Filter Was Not Changed Out At The Time The “delux Flush” Was Performed By The Previous Dealership. Hence: If The Flush Was Necessary Then Why Would`nt The Filter Change Out Be? According To Don Davis ford, ford Recommends The Flush But Not The Filter To Be Changed And They Were Going By The Manufacturers Suggestions. We Have Contacted ford But Their Only Response Is “if You Had Purchased The Truck New Then We Would Have Covered The Transmission Being Replaced” . Great Huh? As Far As The Door Ajar Chime We Still Have That Problem And It Has Become A Nusance Due To The Fact That No ford Dealership Has Been Able To Make The Repair Or Advised Us On How To Disconnect The Silly Chime Buzzer. Your Response And Or Comments Would Be Greatly Appreciated. Sincerely, Debbie Holsomback

Vehicle Was Bought In 2/01 And Had Approx One Week When It Stalled Everytime It Decelerated. Dealership (e-z Way Auto Sales) Took Vehicle Back And Replaced Pcm At No Charge To Us. In 01/02 It Started Hesitating As If It Were Slipping Out Of Gear. Does Not Do All The Time-just Unexpectedly.had Transmission Flushed (80$-01/31/01). Still Sputtering–replaced Fuel Filter And Air Filter Over The Course Of 2 Months–problem Was Not Major And Did Not Happen All The Time-just When You Least Expected It. Then In March It Just Stalled While My Girlfriend Was Driving It And Daughter Was In The Backseat At 60mph! Took To Local Mechanic And They Could Not Receive A Diagnostic Code-finally After Two Weeks Of Driving It To See If They Could Make It Sputter Or Stall It Happened And They Receive A Code For A Egr Valve Which Was Fuel Related–did Not Fix, Cost 105$–took Back To Them And They Kept An Additional 2 Weeks And Said They Gave Up–could Not Diagnose. Took To Local ford Dealer(tri-county ford 05/02) And They Had 3 Days Before It Happened Again. Replaced Pfe Sensor (192$-p0401) Which I Am Told Is The One Which Controls The Valve That Was Replaced. Did Not Fix-returned To ford Dealer(05/02) And They Had A Few More Days And Received Another Code(p0605) And Was Told My Pcm Needed Replacing. When I Told The Tech It Was Just Done A Little Over A Year Ago He Said It Was Probably A Junked Part. E-z Way Will Not Fix. They Said That The Warranty Was Expired And It Was Up To ford. ford Will Not Replace Part, Have Already Been That Route. Said If It Had Been Repaired At A Certified ford Dealer The Whole Time Maybe They Could Help And All Parts Have 12mth Warranty. E-z Way Offered 200$ Toward The Part But Only If We Take It To The Place That Originally Replaced The Part(which Happens To Be Operated By The Owner Of E-z Ways Brother). But No One Will Guarantee That This Will Fix Our Problem. Also, Vehicle Was Sold To Us Without 2 Major Safety Recalls Being Repaired.*ak

Transmission Failure, Truck Has 112000 Miles And The Tranny Would Not Shift To 3rd Gear, The Fluid And Filter Has Been Change 5 Times More Than Recommended By Manufacturer, I Also Had Aamco Install A Larger Transmission Cooler. What Happened To The Tranny Is The C Clamp That Locks The Main Drive In The Transmission Came Off, And Destroyed The Od Drum And Gears I Have Always Kept My Vehicles Well Maintained And At A Cost Of $1,900.56 I Feel That ford Should Re Imburse Me For This , The Truck Has Never Hauled Any Heavy Loads Or Pulling A Trailer With Anything Heavier Than A Riding Lawnmower. I Have A 1970 ford Truck That Is A Better Truck Than My 1997. I Could Only Imagine What Would Happen To A New Truck If Driven Like The Commercials They Produce. I Have Always Been A ford Man But They Are Changing My Mind Quickly. This Truck Has Never Been Abused. It’s Absurd That A Possibly $5.00 Part Could Cause Me Almost 2 Grand.
