#526 of 613 2005 F 150 5.4 Triton Lariat SuperCrew Overdrive Gear Problem
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.

I have a 96 f150 4x4 AT O.D. recently had a fluid leak, fix it. Now there is a hesitation when shifting into drive B 4 it engages. seems to work fine other than that. I was advised that front clutch pack shot. Anyone know if this condition could last awhile of if its gonna die any day ?

MY TRANSMISSION SOUNDS AS IF IT DOES NOT SHIFT INTO EACH GEAR AT THE CORRECT ENG. RPM, DOES NOT SHIFT SMOOTH LIKE I WOULD EXPECT IT TO ALTHOUGH IT DOES SHIFT INTO EACH GEAR INCLUDING INTO OVERDRIVE, ALSO NOTICED THAT IN REVERSE IT WILL HARDLEY MOVE IF THERE IS A GRADE TO THE ROAD. ANY IDEAL AS TO WHAT THE PROBLEM MIGHT BE??? I THOUGHT THE CONVERTER IS GOING OUT.....THANKS

I have the same problem. At around 45mph I get this hickup from the transmission. I didn't notice if the Overdrive was on or off. I have to keep an eye on that and see if that is the problem. I had my transmission flushed at the dealership. And that didn't fix it either. I was hoping someone on this site had the same problem and figured out how to fix it. It isn't too much of a problem now, but I can imagine it getting worse.

sure, I wrote to Ford several times when my tranny failed at 28k miles. It was a few days past the 36 month warranty - I got them to pay half of the dealer cost for replacement, which is roughly twice what a private shop would charge. Seeing how far past the warranty date you are, your letter will likely fall on deaf ears.

i just had that problem and had my transmission rebuid. but the truck loss power on acceleration but according to the computer it runs fine, but i know my truck and i know i loss power, my guess is they used aftermarket parts and now im screwd. go to the dealer, its the best way to go if you want to get it done right. good luck

Sounds like the same problem I'm having. I have a 2007 F150 5.4 Lariat Supercrew with about 68,000 miles. Recently, seems to slip in and out of overdrive when I take foot off accelerator at around 50 mph. It makes kind of a clunking noise. Anyone know what the problem is and what it will take to fix it?

Yes, I am the one that posted a while back and flushing the transmission and changing the fluid really helped a great deal. Autoway Ford on 19 did the work for around $179.00 dollars plus tax and shop fees. If you get it done drive the truck and let the new fluid work in the transmission for a couple of days. I do not experience any of the problem "thank God" any more. Best of luck!

I have an 04 F150 5.4 Lariat SuperCrew and I had the same issue I was getting a bump when starting from a stop after i started the truck in the mornings, but after I wouldn't have that problem. Finally my transmission just went and I got the trans malfunction on the computer. After having the transmission rebuilt, I drove the truck for two days and on the second day I was driving and my truck lost power. The engine revved, but there was no acceleration. What ended up happening with your situation, I'm interested to know. My truck is currently being repaired again, and I should have it back by Friday. Do you know what could be causing the previous problem, so I can avoid having to rebuild another transmission? The shop I went to said something about the wheels were locking up causing the transmission to jam, but that just sounds wrong to me because i never felt my rear wheels lock. Also I spoke with other mechanics that said that sounds fishy. Sorry for the long post

After my 2005 F150 Transmission went with 80K miles, had it for a couple days and the same thing happened only this time the FORD dealership said I need a whole new engine. I asked why this truck would need a new engine with such low miles and easy driving, they said it was maintainance and my fault(oil change)
We changed the oil regularly and there was only 2000 miles since the most recent oil change. Of course Ford didnt want to help at all, but after much discussion and telling them they could have the truck, Ford said they would help with repair if when they opened up engine they could tell it was not an oil change issue. Guess what , they helped with the repair and would not/could not tell me why this engine failed. I feel it was a DEFECTIVE engine, otherwise they wouldnt have covered a penny of this repair. It was fishy when they said they couldnt determine why the engine failed and this model year engine has problems, just look on internet.,
