Hello,this TSB 08-4-16 supersedes original TSB 08-3-8 as of feb 08. This tells of the problem Ford is having with the 6R60 6 speed automatic built prior to 11/28/07 and also those built prior to 5/4/06. Hope this helps. Thx.

We have a 2007 4x4 with the 4.9 V8. The trans now will shift in and out of gear randomly while driving. The dealer re programed the TCU but that did not fix the problem. Has anyone experienced this problem.
#11 of 18 Sport Trac Tranny slipping
Dec 27, 2010 (6:37 pm)
I have a 2003 Sport Trac with 98,000 miles, It has started to slip but only when the road is wet or snowy at first I thought it was the weather or road conditions.
Is there a way to check the transmission to see if the transmission is going bad without paying a lot of money? The transmission fluid was changed at 50 K and is clean looking and does not smell burned. It has new tries It does not seem to slip when the road is dry. It does not shift hard or race between shifts. It seems like it is just loosing traction with the road, Is that possible?
Thanks in advance.

I have a 08 sport trac V6 5 speed trans., had 21 miles on it new, I now have 78k its my only vehicle, started having transmission problems around 76k, no other problems with truck, I take care of my truck no abuse and tranny starts slipping, trying to figure what to do now.

I have an 2007 Sport Trac and just started having transmission problems. I have 79k miles on it. What did you have to do to fix yours? Thanks for any info you can provide.

Still have problems, have been told it's the shift package in transmission. A $400 part, not 100% sure it will fix the problem. Truck shifts great when I drive a bit faster when excelorating, slips when I get in slower traffic, plan on replacing part soon, put 20k miles after slipping started so far

#17 of 18 Sport trac Tranny problem
Jun 26, 2013 (5:39 pm)
I have a 2007 sport trac, one of the solenoid on the trans. has small crack on it. Slow shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. When down shift or coming to a stop feels like I got rear ended. My truck has been kept up very well. The transmission fluid has been changed as well. This is the only vech. that I own. I am self employed and I really love this truck, and would love to get it repaired, at a reasonable price, so if there is anyone out there that knows of someone I can take it to please message me.

#18 of 18 engine cuts off (sometimes) when come to a stop
Oct 16, 2013 (1:08 pm)
I have a 2005 explorer sport trac - 95K miles; Sometimes, when I come to a stop, the engine cuts off. If I try to start it in D, it cuts off again. I must put it in reverse, and drive backwards for a few feet, then put it in D and it will go. The check engine light comes on when this happens; however, when I have taken it to the Ford Dealership ( where I have an extended warranty) they say they cannot find anything wrong and nothng appears in the diagnostic report.
