How's your Clutch? Sounds like it's slipping and is either badly in need of adjustment or needs to be rebuilt.
#4 of 606 2005 F150 transmission grinding noise
Sep 07, 2006 (5:55 am)
I have a 2005 F150 supercrew, 4.6L, automatic. 2 wheel drive with 45,000 miles. I just noticed a grinding noise coming from the transmission or differential when I start out from a stop. The noise seems to be in the lower gears only and returns when I slow down to a stop. Any ideas?
#5 of 606 F-250 Tranny problem
Sep 27, 2006 (7:48 pm)
I have a 93 F-250 4x4 Automatic. When you shift it to Drive it will go threw the gears till it gets to the overdrive, then it just acts like you shifted into neutral, if I push the button on the gear shift knob to turn the overdrive off it will go into gear then, as soon as you try the overdrive it will not go until it slows down to the lower gears. Once in awhile I can get it to work if I drive it for 15 or twenty minutes in drive , also the gas gauge won't work on the front tank when this happens.

Can anyone help with an answer. After a twenty minute highway drive, when slowing for off ramp the transmission makes a grinding sound and just before stopping it clunks down into first gear. I have had it back to the dealer and they have not been able to repair it because they cannot get the truck to repeat the noise. Does anyone have any sugestions as to what might be causing the problem.

You need to do more than just change the fluid - especially if it was done via the tube and not by dropping the pan. My 90 and 96 F150s (both 302 and AOD 4-speed automatic) were very cranky without a full transmissionservice - fluid, filter, band adjustment, pan gasket. If your truck didn't have an auxiliary transmission cooler, you may want to invest in one, as these trannies overheat.

Just wondering if you are having the same problem as I am having, with the OD, one guy tells me there is a elec. switch on the tranny that has to engage the OD, when I went to the Ford Parts store they said there is no such thing on the E4OD trans. but the other mecanic I talked to said he has replace a couple of them, and he bought the switch at the Ford store for about 47 bucks, anyone know what is what on this deal.

See my entry #4 above. I had the same problem with my 2005. took it to dealer and they said the gear set was shot and advised me not to drive it off the lot until they checked it out the next day!! They ended up installing a whole new transmission for $1400, after Ford discounted it from $3000 since the truck was only 9,000 miles ot of warranty. Since the 2006's have that 100,000 mile warranty on the drive train, sounds like they are balking on replacing the transmission early instead of later.
