Again I pulled the truck over and shut it off, started it up and turn overdrive off. The contact had a friend with the same vehicle which was taken to the dealer twice and determined that it was the natural characteristics of the engine. My truck was jerking when it went in to overdrive. I pulled over shut the truck off and started back on my way. I was going about 45 mph. Here is a thread about it. When i get to cruising above 40 mph approx.
The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who diagnosed that the spark plugs needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired but the failure recurred. I lost 4th gear, but had 1st, 2nd, 3rd. For the rest use the standard Ford rated tranny fluid. I have been very careful to make sure I push the overdrive off button each time I start the vehicle up to make sure I dont hurt anything more than I already have.
Symptoms: - Shifted fine from other gears. I pulled over shut the truck off and started back on my way. I was same as you. Took it in with my research and sure enough, had a bad coil. It happened again just recently 110,000 miles. I am no tranny expert, but it has been described to me as a little clip that holds the overdrive servo together and sometimes it has the tendency to break.
Definetly take it somewhere professional and have codes pulled, preferably a trans shop who know how to inspect the transmission controls solenoids and valves to determine what's at fault. Take it out of overdrive, worked fine. The vehicle was not repaired. I accelerated through first gear and second gear, and once it was going to shift into third the rpm gauge just shot up again and no power to rear wheels. It would run fine when overdrive was off thought it was the tranny staring to slip.
I signed the paperwork and went home with the truck. I accelerated through first gear and second gear, and once it was going to shift into third the rpm gauge just shot up again and no power to rear wheels. As soon as I found out how I was lied to by the dealership I return the truck as soon as possible. I took it to Ford 3 times, 3 different ones, had techs drive it and test it. Went up and down gears fine. The service manager had the same vehicle with the same problems.
It's weird but these transmissions should be run a little low. The contact depressed the accelerator to the floorboard while attempting to pass a vehicle, but there was a loss of power, along with a 2 second delay prior to the passing gear activation. . Any ideas about what this might be? The approximate failure mileage was 92,000. The problem occurred only during acceleration and in overdrive. Hi, This happened to my 2001 F-150 5. This time I had absolutely no problems, it runs perfectly fine.
Hey Guys, I am having some sort of transmission issue. I shift it to 2, then back to D and it works fine. Does anyone know what I could be experiencing here? When out of overdrive, the passing gear activated instantly in 3rd gear. The problem started when it had about 75,000 miles. I have been very careful to make sure I push the overdrive off button each time I start the vehicle up to make sure I dont hurt anything more than I already have.
There are no codes being thown or any signs of a problem. Sounds like the direct clutch, but if it's working fine now, could be a solenoid or valve body issue. I just want to know if any others have had this same experience. How I fixed my truck's problem: - First, caveat: Of course this may or may not be the same problem with your truck. Now how do they expect me to pay for the truck if I don't even have it. Good luck, let us know. My truck was Ford certified so I got it fixed with only the 100 dollar deductable.
I scanned the truck but the scanner I have is a cheapo Actron and I dont think it reads trans codes. When I go to the bottom of the hill I hit the gas and the rpm gauge just went up, no power to rear wheels. Have your shop check the coils. On the 2006 truck I worked on recently, the internal splines on the direct clutch drum for the stub shaft stripped. What year, what engine, what transmission and how many miles? I had to drive about 10 miles.
