#273 of 606 transmission
Dec 29, 2008 (9:51 pm)
Ok I have a 2001 Ford F150 4x2 6 cyl. automatic transmission. I went to take off one morning and it reved up to about 4000 RPM's before I could get it to move. I check the tranny fluid and it was completly dry. I filled that back up and realised that I had a leak in one of my lines. Got that fixed but it still wont move in drive, first or second. I have reverse perfectly fine. Someone said to try and rock it while I had someone put into drive to see if we could get the valve unstuck (if that is even the problem), someone else to me to put a bottle of lucas tranny fluid in it so see if that would help. Anyone have any options? I dont want to trade it in right now bc i would get nothing for it with the tranny problem. Any advace would be great!
#274 of 606 Ford E 150 Van trans problem
Jan 03, 2009 (8:53 am)
my 2000 ford van with 228,000 started having trans problems that I would describe as electrical in nature, the van rolling along in drive or overdrive will drop down to 2nd gear, the speedometer will drop to zero ( even when I'm going 60 mph etc) and then if I turn the ignition key off and back on quickley the trns will come back and work OK for a while. Shift solenoid P0750 and P 0755 (solenoid a and b ) and U 1039 (speedometer) fault codes will appear. It's happening more and more to the point of every minute +/- I checked all electrical connections to trans and brightened and used contact (electrlitic grease) on these, I saw that a cam sensor may cause eratic trans problems the trans is strong and when staying in gear it functions fine your thought please
#275 of 606 Need a Ford Guru

Got a 2004 F150 Super Crew that has about 80K on it. Started to develop a intermittent vibration problem. It usually happens at speeds between 45 and 50. Sounds like Iím running over a series of tiny speed bumps and it just last about 1-2 seconds, however; there is no vibration in the steering wheel. It feels as if it originates in the center of the vehicle and only appears if I slightly accelerate. Need a Ford guruís help here. Thanks for your feed-back.

This is exactly what my truck has been doing for three days now. Did you figure out what was wrong with it and how much did it cost?

Mudrun, Believe it or not, it turned out to be the stick itself. Running out of thoughts, I actually loosened the bolt that holds the stick on, started driving, and pulled the stick off--the noise went away, came back when stick was replaced. I tried some fixes on the stick, but ended up buying a new one for 100 bucks. If your truck is under warranty, try to get it fixed there first before messing up the stick like I did. There is some 'natural' bearing noise, but I'd say 80% is gone now, definitely the noise that seemed to come right into the cab. Chris

After I posted my issue, I spoke with a friend and he told me that it looks like a transmission issue. He told me to monitor the RPM gauge during the vibrations. Sure enough, the RPMs jump from 1,400 to about 2,200. It's the over-drive not engaging correctly. Aamco, here I come!

#280 of 606 1994 ford f350 transmisson won't come out of park
Jan 14, 2009 (7:36 am)
The automatic transmisson won't come out of park! The brake light switch is working. Is there a solenoid that has to be energized when the ignition key is turn on or the engine starts that allow the shift level moved from the park position?
#281 of 606 F-150 5.4L Auto Tranny
Jan 14, 2009 (12:15 pm)
I have a 2004 F-150 that just turned over 100k miles, and there is a distinct whine from the tranny starting at 25 MPH and lasts until the OD kicks in. A friend of mine says it's the thrust bearing. There has been a mild vibration ever since I had it (bought new) but it seems to be getting worse. Any thoughts from anyone?
#282 of 606 2004 F150 Lariat - need help -transmission?
Jan 19, 2009 (2:27 pm)
I have taken my vehicle in for the third time now for transmission related problems. The first time, they identified a blown seal (I believe). The second time a speed sensor was replaced. I am still having problems while in 4WH. When I am parking the car or starting out of a stopped condition, the vehicle will jump and sound like it is stalling. It is also very difficult to steer while in the same circumstance.
Any help/info is appreciated.
