Thank you so much for your information. The delearship is working on the problem. I have been driving a 2008 model Expedition, same style and let me tell you there is a huge difference in the way the automobile drives and handles itself from the 2007. I am throughly upset at the fact I was sold a defective vehicle at top dollar price.
It is a shame Ford was not more upfront with me, even when bringing the vehicle back for the 5th time they tried to tell me that they were waiting for Ford to send out a TSB. It wasn't until I told them that I was blogging on the net and had downloaded other buyers complaints for the same problem and new there was an existing TSB for this problem. Only then did they take me serious.
Thanks again for the information I will keep this as my secret weapon incase the problem is not corrected.

I am having problems with the transmission on my truck and every thing I have been reading has happed to me. I took my truck in three times to the Ford place and they said that no CODES came up and nothing wrong with it. But when I drive it from a stop it will not go into 2nd and I have to pull over and turn the truck off and start it to go on my way this has happed 5 times all at different times. And when I pull out of the drive way the tiers spins back . And now it is making a wining noise. NEED HELP!!!
By the way it only has 26300 miles on it and I never pull anything with it.

Call the Ford customer service number in the owners manual. Tell them this is a dangerous situation and you have tried to inform your dealer and they are ignoring you. Be persistent but unemotional. If you can, video the truck acting up. Tell Ford you are aware of many TSB's for this transmission. If none of this gets you any response, look up your states lemon law and file the paper work. This wakes up Ford on a lot of cases. It doesn't cost anything and it doesn't take long.

Thanks , I hope that Ford fixes the problems that people are having with the Expedition EL . People spend a lot of money for a new car and I do not have a money tree growing in my back yard. I hope to hear from other people if Ford did fix the problem or did they get a new truck and if so , how did you do it.
I will file paper work for the lemon law in S.A Texas.

I just experienced the same symptoms today and believe it would be something in the transfer case. What was the problem with your gearbox?

I have a 2003 Expedition that I bought brand new. I have had it serviced at the dealer since then for all major services. I have 60,000 miles on it.
The O/D (Overdrive) light started blinking. I manually pused the overdirve button and was able to shift the car in and out of overdrive, so it was working.
When I tool the Expedition in for the 60,000 mile service I told them the O/D light had been blinking for a couple weeks. When they checked the codes they said it was a sensor on the transmission. Then they called back and explained that when they opened up the transmission they found metal chunks that were fairly large. They tore apart the transmission and replaced the torque converter and 4 clutch bands (I think that is what the said). They said the front clutch was burned up?
I paid $1200 and picked the car up. Within a few miles.....guess what? The O/D light started blinking again. I called back and they said bring it in the next week. I did and now they found that the PCM is bad. What is interesting is that the same codes showed up the second time. The new PCM is covered under the 8/80k warranty.
Now I have asked the dealer to consider that the damages that I paid for before were caused by the failed PCM. He disagreed (no surprise) and said that he has never seen a PCM cause transmission problems. Is that true? Can I get them to pay for part of the transmission repair? I think you call that "consequential damages" ? or something like that.

Well John that is a hard question to answer because only the dealer knows what the codes were before and after. The only way a pcm can damage a transmission is not commanding sufficient line pressure rise causing clutches and bands to slip under throttle. other than that i can't see the pcm being the culprit. but Only they know what happened.
#54 of 263 2004 Expedition problem
Feb 13, 2008 (7:18 pm)
I have a 2004 Expedition with 40,000 miles. The vehicle just underwent a routine service which included a transmission "service". Two weeks later the transmission starts slipping in drive (but not reverse). I take it back to Ford and was told the transmission is bad. When diagnosing the problem, I'm told the "forward clutch seal" went bad and will need to be replaced. The price quote I'm given is $500 for the "part" and $2200 total for labor. Is there such a "part"? If so, is this a reasonable price to fix the transmission?

Yikes, for that price you could get your tranny rebuilt! I might get a second opinion.
