I too have an 06 f150 4x4 super crew. I have 30 k on it and i have the ex warrente 75k, I have a hard shift to 2nd gear also a loud vibration comes from the tranny when under exceleration on top of that i recently towed a 2k lb trailer 200 mile and the tranny shook so hard i thought it was going to die on the side of the road. I brought it to ford and all they could tell me was DRIVE IT TIL IT BREAKS! Thats a NO GO in my book so i called ford an spoke with a JOE RICE or BRICE regional manenger for the customer satisfaction east and his choggie boy TREVOR, these two were horrible ambassador for the ford company and did nothing to correct the problem. They were very hard to work with and avoided any kind of customer care or resolution. If anything those two single handedly ruined any chance of me buying another ford again. To make it worse when I asked repeatedly for his supervisor or a survey form or web sight and JOE BRICE refused both and said i would have to take up a civil suite if if i wanted any resolution. I was also told that at my expense i would have to provide a trailer so the maint crew could replicate the complaint( tranny shutter while towing) witch i think is unacceptable. they claim to have fixed the hard shift but it is still very prominent. Please feel free to email me with any advice ANYONE! I hope this trickles down to ford and JOE and TREVOR are seriously looked at as ambassador for ford clearly a weak point in the company. davidcurtisayahoo.com

Aug 05, 2008 (3:47 pm)
I had my transmission rebuilt 2 years and 25k ago. Everything worked perfect until recently. There are no trouble signals. Sometimes when I down shift the revs go up past where they should (freewheel ?) and then drop down to where they should be in the lower gear. It is expecially bad when in top gear at highway speeds on grades. The revs will go up 500 rpm past where they should be (or more) and then it slams back into gear and then everything is fine. In regular driving it shifts perfectly and the fluid level is good with the color good and no burnt smell. One shop thinks it might be a sprag and the shop that rebuilt it thinks it might need another overhaul because of clutch wear. It should not be clutches as it only has 25k easy miles on a complete rebuild. It does not feel like slipping but like it is in neutral (or between gears for a split second) when this happens.

I second that. It can be slightly annoying but otherwise no big deal. The additivies should fix it.

What do you suggest for a HEAVY DUTY rebuild for a 2002 F-150 E40D 4x4 tranny? Will a Super Duty transmission work? I am an adult and I don't abuse the truck but I do haul loads occasionally and plow snow a few times in the winter. I am sick of having problems. Every shop seems to have a different idea of how to fix these.

Aug 04, 2008 (1:12 pm)
I have a 1995 Ford F250 Super Duty with a E40D transmission. Last week I was pulling my 32ft trailer up a mountain pass when the transmission went into a down shift mode untill all I had was engine RPM/throttle when you hit the gas. I wasn't pushing it. I was doing about 50MPH up the highway and I had my overdrive turned off at the time. Needless to say it cost me $1000 cash to have my trailer and truck towed back to my house which was about 110 miles away. I went to check out my truck today and I do have reverse but I have no forward gears to move the truck, just engine RPM/Throttle. Any ideas would be great as yes I know that this is a complicated transmission. Thanks in adavance for all your help.

#234 of 613 2000 F-350 4x4 Superduty Automatic Transmission problem
Aug 26, 2008 (3:12 pm)
Help! Transmission just recently started to show these problems: occasionally when starting the truck and putting transmission into drive there's nothing there (it's like it is in Neutral), 2nd is the same. The trick to getting 2nd & Drive working and moving forward is to put truck into 1st gear and drive slowly forward and then shift into 2nd then into Drive to engage transmission. This method has worked everytime regardless of temperature, duration of how long the truck had been running or shut down, etc. Now there is a new problem: the method of putting truck into 1st gear and then to Drive is no longer working. 1st gear seems to be slipping (or what I believe to be slipping) and doesn't engage. If I gas it at this point and go to 3000 rpm and then back off, it will slowly engage into 1st and then again I can shift into 2nd and then Drive. Reverse has always worked fine. Any ideas?
