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.,

The same thing happened to my 04 F150. Turns out it was the OD e clip on the end of the transmission. The transmission has to pbe pulled to put the new modified clip on.

okay cool that helps...but the mechanic says he's going to fix it no charge, and today he changes his mind and is trying to charge me for parts without labor and claims he's doing me a favor? Like really? People are such crooks? and he says its because the rear diff is bad but I've called and talked with several mechanics that say that's highly unlikely, I'm sure he's just trying to take advantage of me.

I have the same issue. Run-down of my issues since I've had the truck.
36,100 miles: transmission gave out. New transmission. Ford did a 50/50 split on price because it was only 100 miles.
77,000 miles: another transmission destroyed itself. New transmission, I was at my 3 year one month mark on the warranty and Corp. Ford told me they will not pay anything because I was out of warranty by a little less than a month. $3,200 later I have a new transmission.
82,000miles (3 months later): transmission is slipping in O/D at approx. 43 mph. Dealer and corporate will not admit there is an ongoing problem with the truck and will not stand by their product. This transmission is obviously under warranty but itís pointless to get it fixed if itís just going to burn up.
Best action: Call local Better Business Bureau Office and make a complaint. If they get enough complaints, they have to investigate it. Also they can help you get mediation between corporate. I personally will never buy Ford again. They cannot seem to stand by their product.

While I am driving my transmission slips into nuetral and the speedometer quits working and mileage also quits working any ideas what might cause this problem would really be helpful.

#544 of 608 1985 Ford F250 will not go into gear
Nov 02, 2011 (10:21 am)
I have an 85 F250 that had been sitting for about a year and a half. When i went to finally start it up i found a freeze plug had blown, so i replaced it. It started up just fine, held water, and after a few chokes and sputters it purred like an......old ford. Just one problem. It wont go into gear. It just seems to float right over the gears. When i parked it, it went into gear fine. The tail lights are work and it has tranny fluid. I really dont have the money to take it in. Anyone got any suggestions?
