Oops! I left my cell phone at home! Why didn't I ask my brotha-man to follow me out here? I think I drove out a little too far... Man, this sucks! Now wht do I do? :nogrinner

Take it in. If they can't (or won't) fix it then at least you tried. Trying is always better than giving up and quitting.

Unfortunately, this is the way things are done. In a perfect world they would just replace the whole thing but from a business standpoint you can see where it makes sense; if they replaced every major part without investigating the issue first they'd go broke.

So one of two things will happen; they check it over and replace it, or they fix it. If the repair doesn't solve it, then make them do it again.

Unfortunately it's the only way that they'll learn to make it right the first time ...

Thats sure one way for them not fixing. Besides good luck in trying to get it in reverse while moving forward

The bickering has subsided, but I'm sure those with opinions then still hold those opinions. I personally still think owners with more than 2 trans replacements are themselves the issue.

OP, I would definitely take it in as the whine is definitely not normal. Notchiness on the other hand is.

If people take the time to listen, instead of make ignorant comments like this... then they might think otherwise.

Tranny #1 - failed due to PP bolts backing out
Tranny #2 - Ford replaced @ 500 miles due to a supercharger whine
Tranny #3 - Failed to get into 6th when cold

How many of these were caused by the driver, me?

I don't mean to de-rail this thread... but there are issues with quality control here for certain.

OP, take it in and hope for the best.

The service manager called me and said that Ford will not replace the transmission without them using the Cost Cap tool. So that means tearing down the transmission and determining if it is cheaper to repair or replace.
What makes me nervous is if they tear it down and just repair it I have never had luck with repaired transmissions and am afraid I will be spending the next couple months trying to get things right.
Hello Grifftech,

I'd like to escalate this to the Customer Service Manager assigned to your area. Please PM me with your VIN, dealer, mileage, full name, and best daytime number so I can help.
