#242 of 262 Transmission of my 2008 Expedition fixed
Feb 13, 2013 (1:34 pm)
Manhattan Ford , where I service my Ford expedition and where I purchased it in 2008, finally was able to convince Ford to replace my car's transmission. The car finally does not bang when downshifting from second to first gear when coming to a stop. Seems all other repairs, software updateds etc. never worked. I am grateful to the staff of Manhattan Ford for being presistant for all this time (the car had been looked at more than 5 times over a year) and finally resolving the issue.
#244 of 262 2003 Expedition Trans Trouble at 128K miles
May 25, 2013 (10:35 am)
At 128 K miles the transmission is jerking at around 50mph. While I was test driving it I rounded a left curve at 50 mph and the transmission lost tourque as if the transmission was placed in nuetral. The engine reved to 4K rpm's and I released the accelerator pedal. The car passed through the curve and the transmission again attached to the engine.
The skipping symtoms at 50 mph are similar to the same jerking caused by bad coils or sparkplugs but those have been recently replaced and the problem persists. I'd appreciate any Ideas as to cause and repair.

BTW the onboard computer reported no problems when checked by a technician.

Has the tranny been serviced regularly?

Yes! We service it at the recommended intervals. The present fluid is at the correct level and looks and smells brand new.

Check your TV cable (throttle valve) they get gummed up over time.
Right were the TV connects to tranny, you will have a steel rod at end of cable, also attached to a return spring. If that rod is dirty it won't slide in and out of the sleeve like it should, that can cause high rpm shifts, and down shifts because the cable is not kicking back down when it should. So it will delay at the throttle body at engine causing high rpm. That wouldn't throw a code that I know of. Take a rag and spray cleaner wipe that rod down. Its free, its worth a try, it may be that simple. Good luck

I was going to suggest a change along with shift additive, but if it has been done at 30k intervals it is likely to not help too much.

I bought a 1998 ford Expo XLT when ever i drive with the overdrive light off ( which means its in over drive) it slips around 40 or 50 miles and when i turn overdrive light on which means the overdrive is off it rides perfect any suggestions on what would cause that .I no that the engine is rebuilt.
#251 of 262 2010 Ford Expedition XLT Shifts Hard
Jun 17, 2013 (2:56 pm)
My husband and I just bought a 2010 Expedition XLT at a government auction. We really like the vehicle but I am concerned because at times, particularly when climbing hills, it seems to shift really rough. My husband thinks this shuttering upon shifting is normal for this vehicle, but I'm not so sure. Is it a normal or a problem? If it is a problem, what is the most likely cause. Thank you!
