Things are going like the old Hee Haw song, "Gloom despair and agony on me..." 78k miles and trans seems to slip when at slow speeds during acceleration. Lost my job and really can't afford mechanic. Did have the transmission fluid changed, still slips. Any suggestions? Yes, i'm looking for work and no not as a mechanic.

I have a 2002 F150 4.6L V-8 with over 160,000 miles in it. It is having trouble with accelerating. Unless I'm going downhill, I'm lucky to get it to go over 35MPH. It also does not want to go uphill. I tried starting it off in 1st, then shifting to 2nd, then to Drive which worked pretty normally until I put it in drive when it just seemed like it didn't want to shift into 3rd. I have actually had the pedal to the floor going uphill and not much response, not even higher RPMS. It has an automatic transmission and I have had the transmission fluid checked (it was clean and at the appropriate level). Also had the components on the underside and under the hood checked out and all looked good visually. It had been having trouble prior to this for a couple of months with up shifting on the interstate at about 70MPH and has had a coolant leak for about a month or so in a hose near the heater core. Anybody have any ideas?

You might try adding a bottle of transfer case stop slip fluid. It's designed specially for transfer cases and is a blue fluid in a small (about 2 ounces) bottle. worked great in my tranny.

Well got a new Ford F-150, FXW w/Ecoboost engine. Problem with it shifting out of first to second gear and on stopping, engine shutters. Took to dealer, theres a TSB out on the vehicle and they are replacing the transmission clutch. This is the new 6 speed automatic clutch Ford raved about so much. Other than that, very happy with this vehicle.

It is most likely a clutch problem often linked to the master clutch a quick temp fix is press the clutch in and see if it pops back and then check your clutch fluid. This can occur in cold weather or if parked on a hill and fluid drained away from clutch.

Mine just did the same thing this afternoon. My truck is a 4x2, i had it sent to the Ford dealership I trust. I wil let you know what they tell me tomorrow. I think it is a linkage issue. My truck has never had any transmission sounds prior to this, its just a hard time staying in gear on the console selection.

Jul 21, 2011 (5:22 am)
The transmission problem started at around 83000 miles on the speedometer. Transmission slips in and out of overdrive at around 45 to 50 miles an hour. Just yesterday had the transmission flushed by Ford dealership ($179.00) but problem still persists. If I turn off the overdrive (button on console) problem goes away because the OD gear does'nt shift in.
Ford Dealership representative said this F-150 does not have a filter to replace, is this true?
Would it make a difference to replace filter?
Truck is no longer under warranty, so would anyone know what this repair would cost?
Would there have to be complete replacement of the transmission?
Thank you for the replys.
