I would include them in my letter. I took it to the dealership and the first time I dropped it off, they couldn't recreate the problem. The real problems came when I would be traveling at highway speeds in 6th gear and accelerate up a hill. I know I put a lot of miles on a car but this is ridiculous. If you service your car regularly you may try changing one at a time as they go soft and swollen.
Ford Focus Problems With Valve Seats The valve seats failed, dropped into the engine and destroyed it. Ford better own up to their error. Dealer lubed connecting shafts and put 2 clamps on the shafts. In fact, the new transmission has no cast-iron parts whatsoever. But recently the transmission has been going into limp mode which i have also noticed that the throttle tends to feel like its sticking on intial acceleration after trans has locked into 3rd Apart from that love my ford , but if someone could please let me know where i can locate the fault codes to download that would be fantastic. Unfair to the consumer who put their faith in a Ford product.
So far the car is running good. These numbers are key to knowing which transmission you have and what parts should be used. The tight ratios keep the engine closer to peak power during full-throttle acceleration and, according to Norris, provide for smoother operation when towing a trailer, a matter of some importance in the F-150 world. This was covered by Warranty, but I am very worried it will happen again based on everything I've read. I noticed the usual suspects radio showing low battery, needs jumping and battery light on and off in January and went straight to the shop. Bronco Grave-yard is yet another source. General Motors further developed the 200 into a 200-4R with overdrive, and from there the all-new 700-R4 purpose-built automatic overdrive.
We have been in the shop at least four times for the same chattering and scraping transmission problem described by others. Here are the dipstick tube A and cooler line B ports. Hoot noise came back one week later. No cost to me to fix the seal as it was their error. Part of the weight reduction comes from an aluminum stator support, a formerly cast-iron part. The Fix… Normally you would eliminate the water and oil cooling system and fit an external air to oil cooling unit. The 3-4 shift accumulator was phased out in the 1989 model year due to leak issues.
Coupled with the electronic throttle strategy, the transmission computes the output torque required to maintain the vehicle speed, and chooses the correct gear and converter state accordingly. My wife and kids could have been killed because of a sudden loss of power while the transmission failed to shift into high gear. This vehicle has been regularly serviced at the Ford dealership as prescribed since day 1. I will never trust ford again. The clutches in an automatic transmission are hydraulically actuated and controlled, so the new transmission relies on two special pumps to provide the necessary hydraulic muscle. Determined the actuators themselves on both the left and right side of the vehicle were at fault.
It took two weeks - mostly while corporate Ford argued with the local Ford dealer as to whether they should 'fix' or 'replace'. The 4F27E is a strengthened 4-speed automatic and only some of the internals were updated. It seems like they are just putting in the same transmission which will error again due to the defect in the model build. They did not even check transmission to see exactly what happened!!!! If your happy to try your luck with your original unit stripped and rebuilt it will save you some big bucks but may effect you warranty. What's more, an extend warranty with no assurances of functional parts simply delays an inevitable cost to owners of these vehicles. By the way, my 1980 Lincoln blew an engine at 88K.
Try not to drive slow, because it will shutter when you gain speed 4. When the second oil cri-sis arrived in 1979, it brought with it increased fuel-economy standards imposed by the federal government. Can anyone give me some advise please?

Remove driveshaft and install new seal 29032 km Took truck in to the dealer for oil change and tire rotation. If either of these two sensors falls out of alignment or experiences electrical issues, it impacts the operation of the entire transmission. The new 10-speed drops that to about 4.
