You may want to look into this: http://www.fordservoboretransmissionfixsolution.com is where you can get a fix for your transmission if the OD light is flashing or Check Engine light is on. If you get Codes for your trans like PO 775 or PO 745, it is most likely the servo bores. This place gets you a 200.00 fix that you can do in your driveway in 2 hours. It fixed my 03 2 weeks ago and is now doing fine! Ford originally replaced my transmission case at 36,000 miles for this problem. Now it happened again at 148,000. Puts more mileage on a nice vehicle!

I just had my transmission rebuilt on my 2003 ford explorer xlt 4.0L 4x4, installed it and it will not shift. The transmission wire harness broke from the solenoid pack at the tail when removing the transmission. Repleced wire harness from the dealer with Vin number from my SUV (another dealer said it couldn't be done this way, that I needed the code off the harness. tag was missing) Replaced solenoid pack with a rebuilt unit. Replaced Torque converter with a remanufactored one. Dropped transmission again and sent it back to transmission shop. Tested out fine. Transmission still will not shift. What else should I do?

2007 Mecury Mountaineer V6 AWD
Problems began at 65,000 miles.
Hard shift from Park to Reverse - Sometimes.
Grinding action from 2nd to 3rd upshift - Always.
Hard Thump from 2nd to 1st downshift - Always.
Said didn't know but could update software for $100. Went with it but did not work.
Said to rebuild it.
AAMCO - Free diagnostic check, said they needed to do more and would cost about $200. Said could be external, solenoid pac possibly.
Local Transmission Shop
Test Drove and diagnostics; Said to rebuild. Also said Transfer Case is cracked.
I read and watched videos, trying to convince myself there must be something that can be done. So, I tried the fluid flush and even the shop that performed the jobs said I'd be rolling the dice, they said they have only know fluid flushes to solve these probelems very rarely. But, I went for it because I had to. They added Shutter Guard treatment. Still same issues. $180
We will never own another Ford product ever. Nor will anyone in my family and I will do my best to inform others to never consider Ford products when purchasing.
This is how you kill a brand. Not by the hard work of the many who build it, those on the factory floor or assembly line. Doesnt matter where its built either, its the corporate attitude and negligence at the top of the company structure. Look, it hasn't been about the vehicle in a long, long time at Ford. Its just something to sell for profit. Nothing more. They should get into the toilet paper business because all they produce is pure crap.

My 1994 is doing the same thing out of no where! the o/d light flashes withing the first few blocks of driving. Now this morning I got back from dropping kids off and it wont go into park! i had to put is in N and use emergency brake!! All of the shops and internet are saying what you posted.. So you're thinking that there is no hope, and need a new or rebuilt transmission to hopefully solve problem?

One may not be related to the other, but your transmission needs service - the parking pin has broken, and that will need fixing anyway.

It sure could. I would have the fluid and filter changed, and see if that loosens it up. No doubt, you have a clogged valve body.
