Steve - you might be surprised to know that Mark left Ford a few weeks ago and is now working for Getrag.

Wow! He went to the dark side (along with me).
Good to know. Thanks.
My LS will hit 110K in the next few weeks, & I'm planning a journey way north in July which should add another 6-7K.

"Mark left Ford a few weeks ago and is now working for Getrag."
A prime example of what is happening at Ford. THe good people who can get good work elsewhere have taken the buyouts. 70% of the rest dont have a good thing to say about the company. Any wonder pessimism rules?

I recently had this issue with my '01 LS. Mine would not shift into overdrive and the engine light and "E" appeared. The dealer changed the solenoid pack and the valve body. The solenoid pack replacement did not solve the problem as I went and drove the car after the solenoid pack was replaced. The valve body actually fixed the problem. Who knows for how long, as I am sure there is probably other wear in the transmission. The repairs were going to total about $1600.00 but since we had only recently purchased the car from the dealer and they sold it when it was new, they agreed to do the repairs for free. If we were going to pay the $1600.00, I would have replaced the entire transmission. I did not want to patch something for that amount of money and then later have to replace the entire transmission and total expenditures total around $4600.00. I have driven the car about 250 miles since the repair and everything is doing fine at this point.
