We had the same problem! Let your dealer know there is a TSB out for the transmission. The mechanic at our dealership (after numerous attempts of trying to re-create the problem weren't sucessful) decided to see if there was a TSB issued...and of course there was so he then UPDATED our computer chip software that regulates the tranny...took it home and of course it continued it after we left the dealer...took it back and the tech said they have to try to correct the smaller problem first so then he said the whole chip would have to be replaced...which costs Ford about $1100.00 and now the 2007 Expo runs like a champ...so have your mechanic check that out especially if it is still under warranty...

Thanks so much for your post...saved me TONS of time and aggravation with dealer. Once I said there was a TSB, they knew I was an informed consumer! They performed an upload program into my Expedition EL and so far so good. Transmission tech said that he has seen quite a few of these and only a few require the new part from Ford. My tech said if it continues, the next step will be to replace the part. I'm crossing my fingers!

I was just wanting to know if anyone can tell me if there is a TSB on the 2004 Expediton tranny? I have one that just went out at 40,000 miles. I am not sure about you guys but I am not happy with my ford right now or Ford Motor company for that matter. I guess since people don't die from tranny problems, Ford will never recall them. Help me please.

An owner may have more details but you can check for summary TSB and recall info with the Edmunds Maintenance Guide.

I have a 98 expedition 4.6l. Last winter I discovered that when I try to put in into 4 high or low it isn't engaging. The lights on the dash are lighting up as they should but the system is not engaging. I am being told it is problably the transfer case shifting motor. I wanted some more advice before I replace...Help..

We just bought a 2004 with 28,000 miles 5 wks ago. It's now back at the dealer for transmission problems (both upshift and downshift) and we're waiting to hear from the Ford rep. At first they couldn't duplicate the problem (sound familiar?) but we insisted that it is much worse than the slight clunk as referenced in the service bulletin. I can't imagine the clunk and hard shift on ice; you would think they would see this as a safety issue. Not picking it up until it's fixed! After reading this forum I guess we are in for a battle.

Ours did not start with a clunk and hard shift, we now realize that it started months ago with just a strange sound. We are suppose to get ours back today, make sure that you do not pick it up until the transmission is changed. We were told there was nothing wrong with ours when it was still under warranty. Now that the warranty has run out it is costing us $2600 to have it replaced with a Jasper Rebuilt transmission. This transmission has a 100,000 mile warranty something >FORD WONT GIVE US. We do love our truck but not sure that keeping it is the right thing to do.

t case shifting motor is a good guess, but it really needs to be diagnosed. Many transmission shops also work on t cases, I would ck there.

My 99 Expedition started doing the same thing. The blinking has been intermitent. It usually starts blinking when I hit 45MPH. I had the fluid drained/flushed and still get it. Today, I drove it to see if maybe it just needed to warm up more and drove for more than 20 miles without the light blinking and took it up to 70MPH and no blinking. Upon entering my neighborhood it started blinking again. Any ideas? I took it to the dealer and AAXXX, they both said the tranny needs rebuilding. It drives and shifts fine.
