See my entry #4 above. I had the same problem with my 2005. took it to dealer and they said the gear set was shot and advised me not to drive it off the lot until they checked it out the next day!! They ended up installing a whole new transmission for $1400, after Ford discounted it from $3000 since the truck was only 9,000 miles ot of warranty. Since the 2006's have that 100,000 mile warranty on the drive train, sounds like they are balking on replacing the transmission early instead of later.

(That should've been 90 and 93 F1450s I used to have, not 96).
The E4OD did have an OD switch on the shifter tip. The AOD selections went P-R-N-OD-D-1, the E4OD was P-R-N-D-2-1 and the tip switch controlled OD off/on.

This 93 has the OD switch on the shifter, I looked at the trannny and notice there is a sticking indicating that it is a remanufactered tranny, no date, there is a wiring harness connected to the shifted at the tranny with several wires, I suppose for bacup lite and saftey start, but is there also a OD wire in that harness???

Just had my 2002, F150 with 60000 miles lose the "Sun Gear" (weld broke) this in turn destroyed the clutches, Torque converter, and Overdrive. All total a bill for $2,100 for a new Transmission. Not sure if this is a common problem with this Trans, Just trying to get some feed back before I write a letter to Ford about it. Any help would be grateful
#14 of 613 Another Tranny Problem

91 F-150 5.0 L with the larger OD tranny. Dec 05 had tran rebuilt. Last week started shifting rough. Took back to shop. Mech installed a new solenoid pack in tran. Yesterday drove 20 miles home no problem till I turned last corner onto my road. BAM!, it started again. Mech said smietimes electrical issues can cause rhe part to malfunction. Could I have some sort of wiring problem elsewhere that would cause this.

I have been going threw all the elec. plug in on my 93, it seems to work part time but still takes about 10 min. to start shifting into D and OD. I have been cleaning and adding the elec. grease. I am wondering if maybe the TPS may have something to do with it, I'm going to change mine and see if it helps.
#16 of 613 vibration problem,2006 f150
Nov 01, 2006 (1:58 pm)
my 2006 f150 has had a vibration during acceleration.i have had it back to the dealer 3 times.They said it is normal.I find it hard to believe they would invest in quiet steel and not worry about vibrations.It is like a buzzing more than a grinding.It is not acceptable to me that the 2 vehicle's i just sold,a honda with 150,000miles and nissan pickup with 85,000 miles were smoother than my brand new truck.And the dealers response to this problem was IT IS WHAT IT IS.It is the last ford and american vehicle i will ever own!Good job FORD another lost customer.

Don't take one dealer's word for it. If you are unhappy, try a different dealer.
#18 of 613 '99 F-150 transmission problem
Nov 09, 2006 (9:25 pm)
I've had my F-150 (4X2) for a while with 120K miles. I mainted it pretty well with all the scheduled maintenance. But, I found out a few months ago that the radiator fluid was flooded with pink transmission fluid. My machanic said his never seen it before. I replaced the radiator and flushed both the radiator and transmission (this took more than 6 tries at the dealer over a 3 day period). They warned that there might be transmission damange and told me to keep an eye on it. This seemed to have fixed it for couple of months.
Now I find that the transmission is very rough and it hesitates for upto 5 seconds from 1st to 2nd, which makes the truck loose power dramatically. I'm afraid to take it in to hear that the transmission needs to be replaced. Everything else seems to be fine. There is no 'funny' noise or feel when the car is idle or is in high gear.
Does anyone have any ideas of what I might expect to hear and what my options are if I need to replace the transmission? I don't want to take it to a dealer as the labor rate is high, but it's too big to trust it to my local mechanic. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

First you need to find a different mechanic if the one you have been using has never seen an internal leak in the radiator between the cooling system and the transmission cooler. Granted this is not a very common problem but certainly not unheard of either.
My preference would be to ask friends,co-worker, etc for a recommendation for a independent shop that specializes in transmissions. It sounds as if your transmission is on its last legs.
