Hello: I'm running into similar issues with a 2009 GT I just bought in August. The trans is louder then how I think it should sound. Bought it back to the dealer twice and the technician stated he hears something but wasn't ready to say anything was wrong. He did comment that he thought the sound was coming from the trans. He sent out an inquiry to Ford to see if there were any other complaints and supposedly Ford said no. After reading these posts that response sounds like alot of bull. I notice this problem more when the windows are up and it sounds like the noise is coming from the floor on the passenger side. For the first couple of weeks I drove it around with the windows always open to better hear the rumbling of the engine. Since it's been getting colder the windows have been up more and now it's more noticeable. Not a clunking sound but more like the gears get louder, especially in second gear. Get's louder when I accelerate and rpms go above 2,000. I love the car but this sure puts a damper on the whole purchase. I may just bring the car to my own mechanic who also installs transmissions to get his opinion.

I have an 05 mustang v6 automatic transmission. I've never had any problems out of it until the other night. I was stopped at a red light and pushed the gas to go and the RPM's jumped really high like to 5000. The engine reved really hard. At that point it wouldn't shift out of 1st gear. I rode in 1st to the nearest gas station and parked it. It will not go into reverse and it will not shift to neutral to be able to push it any where. Originally thought it would be out of transmission fluid and though I haven't had it checked recently (been told you have to check it from the underside of the car which is also where you fill it up) my car has not leaked any fluids, no lights have come on, nothing on my message board, and no problems while driving. I have no idea what could be wrong. Does anyone have any ideas before I get it towed to the dealership? I don't want to go in blind and get charged for something that might have nothing to do with the problem.

Go under your car and check your vacuum hoses and transmission modulator. since not knowing your car history or care, may I suggest replacing your vacuum hoses and transmission modulator anyway? Had similar problems years ago! Good luck!

the other day I started the car perfectly, waited a few minutes and left home.. I heard like the revolutions on my car went up but I thougth it was cold still. I stop in a sign and when I tried to go on it just didn't. couldn't go backwards or forward.. nothing but the engine still work
no lights came on to warn..
We checked the transmission fluid but it was good. I took it back to the dealer and they said it was the transmission, we changed it but the problem still.
can you tell me what it can be...
#75 of 153 Black tape in automatic transmission??
Jan 01, 2010 (8:34 pm)
Changed the automatic transmission fluid and filter in my 2005 Mustang today. Its the first time anyone but the factory has been in there. Looked OK except for one big surprise. There was a piece of black plastic tape in there sloshing around, about 5 inches long, an inch wide and kind of crinkled up like plastic does when has been hot. Has anyone else seen something like this? This kind of concerns me, and I changed the fluid/filter early at 60K vs 100K as it has started to 'think' a second or two longer than normal when moving to reverse.

That method doesn't change all of the fluid. It's recommended to use the dealer machines that suck out and replace the fluid using the cooler lines. This gets 95% of the fluid out including the torque converter whereas dropping the pan only gets about 2/3. There is no need to change the filter - if there's enough stuff to clog up the filter the tranny is already toast.
#77 of 153 YOUR NOISY TRANSMISSION ISSUE
Jan 06, 2010 (7:58 am)
Ford screwed us, but we fixed the problem. Ford knows of this issue and hides it.
The problem is the SAME as our 2005 GT where pitch went way up after 40mph and got lounder and whinnier the faster you went.....it it was a noisy ring and pinion set witih pinion and carrier bearings. Total cost $500. Could have been done under warranty but Ford kept saying..."that's the way it's supposed to sound."
Bull ____. Hope you don't have the same problem, but if you do it is a warranty issue.
