#183 of 243 Expedition transmission problems 2006
May 08, 2011 (2:35 pm)
I have a 2006 ford expedition eddie bauer and when taking off it feels like it is missing a gear, then when slowing down it downshifts hard. I have replaced the spark plugs, changed the oil and filter, replaced the transmission oil filter since it has 60k miles on it. This was the original filter because the dipstick plug was still in the pan when I dropped it. I put the correct transmission fluid per the man. specifications. I cannot see the transmission going bad with only 60k miles on it. Is there some kind of sensor or vacuum line that I can check?

Hello!! I just bought a 2007 Expediton EL 4x4 in January 2011. I am now having the same issues that you have in this post. Have you found anything else out about this? What was the issue?

I have the same problem on my 2005 XLT. At 40-45 it shudders, if I force it to downshift then it moves into the next gear as expected. Also, drove with overdrive turned off and problem goes away, so makes me think its something to do with the overdrive.

May 24, 2011 (2:34 pm)
Each year as it gets hot I notice that my Expy runs very hard and sluggish. It is almost as if the truck was switched into 4Xlow (exaggerated) and it sounds like a large commercial truck in terms of engine rev and noise. Very noticeable difference from winter experience.
In the winter, no problem, the truck is normal. Having the AC on/off does not influence the problem and the temp gauge indicates no difference in temp from summer running or winter. Always runs smack in the middle of temp gauge.
I live in AZ so it does get very hot here but it just seems the vehicle is working so much harder than it has to. Any ideas if this may be related to the tranny?

I'm having the exact same problem that a few people already described in the post. I have a 2004 Expedition XLT with 128,000 miles on it and just started to experience this problem as well. Like everyone else, seems to only be happening in Overdrive. Please let me know if you've found any info about the problem and how to fix it. Thanks.

My brother, who drives a 2006 Super Crew and had the same problem, suggested I take my Expedition to Autozone and have them check the ignition coil packs. One or two of them could be misfiring. This translates into clunking and jerking when accelerating.
I plan to to take it to Autozone and have them check my coil packs for free when I have the time. They also, apparrently have them for half the price of the dealer.

I have experienced the same jerking problem with my 2005 Expedition. I took it to my local Ford Dealer who stated: It's PROBABLY the "special" spark plugs and "special" wire. They announced a whooping $821 price tag to replace the plugs and wires. They say it is a slight intermittent misfire that causes the jerking. I bet you can guess what I told them to do with their "special" plugs and wires.

By special if they mean specific to your truck, they are correct. There are three parts to the plug system - wires, COPS, and plugs. Four parts if you count the rubber boot over the COP. A COP from the dealer is around $90. You can buy a set of 8 on ebay for less than that. From what you got quoted, it is more likely a plug change and just wires when in fact it is the COPS and boots on the COPS that go bad. You should use the Motorcraft plugs. If by chance you break a plug doing it yourself you will have wished you paid the $800. Especially if you break #4 or #8. There is a reason Ford suggests a tool for taking out the remanants of broken plugs.
