We pleaded with the service advisor at this dealership to investigate what could have caused the problems we were experiencing and they refused. New filter and fluid should be good to go! We have contacted Ford's customer service department in the past and were not at all satisfied with their handling of the situation. This continued to occur until I was able to get home. That's a warning for you! Ford refused to accept any responsibility for the faulty design, part, or repairs.

If the light blinks on and off then there should be a code tripped and will tell you what is wrong if you get it scanned.

This has the same effect of putting the truck in neutral when going down hill. The dealership prior to the fire said that if we were in fact having transmission problems that we would have seen the overdrive light on the shifter column flashing, this never occurred which leads us to believe that there may be a failure in the computer of this truck that they refused to find.
While driving at approximately 30 miles per hour, I experienced a sudden and immediate lost of power. I am retaining all of the failed parts for evidence. How many people have to be hurt, or potentially killed before Ford will issue a recall and stand behind their defective design? I had the vehicle towed to the local Ford dealership for a diagnostic evaluation. After several attempts, the vehicle shifted hard into 2nd gear and proceeded forward. Manufacturer was contacted, and stated that he needed to contact a dealer to see what was wrong with the vehicle. My second gear broke at 40,000 miles 4,000 miles past my warranty.
We have faught a hard fight with allstate insurance to get them to fix our truck properly to no avial. We were in a very bad section of town and there was no way in hell we were going to stop.

Was outside of 3 year warranyy but under 36,000 miles. Sure sounds very similar to what my issue was. Clearly this is defective engineering that impacts the drive train. Now we have a truck that has been at a dealership for almost 90 days and they have yet to find the cause of fire. The vehicle was serviced at least 3 times for this problem and was never solved.
We were fortunate to get ourselves and our small children out of the truck in time. He has seen them go with only 150,000! Thanks The other day, the transmission has been acting up on my 2001 7. Buy a recycled 2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty transmission and save thousands of dollars. ThanksI had a similar issue on the same year truck and it ended being the mechanical diode curse of the 4r100 transmission. In the morning I'm gonna change the tranny fluid and I hope it makes a difference but I know on diesels it's not that simple I would appreciate any suggestions. So we drove slowly to a relatives house that was closest to where we were.
It is that faulty, corrupted, disfunctional 4R100 transmission! The situation is that in July 2000 through March 2001 Ford changed the design of the one-way clutch from the sprag design in service since 1989 according to the dealer to the new mechanical diode. Not really anything to do with how you drive it! On August 20, 2006 I was traveling northbound highway 49 in auburn, California, from bell road. If you drop the pan and change the filter or fluid you will see the magnet is covered with small filings! The service dealer was not able to determine the nature of the failure. Transmission, gears, clutch, all those parts and pieces, do not do well with burnt fluids. We have incurred a drastic financial loss due to this and fear being put back in this vehichle knowing that it could happen again, becaus the initial cause of fire has not been found. In the morning I'm gonna change the tranny fluid and I hope it makes a difference but I know on diesels it's not that simple I would appreciate any suggestions.
The other day, the transmission has been acting up on my 2001 7.

But the transmission just feels weak now and doesn't have very much power behind It It's drivable and it shift but the shift points are very hard and they shift in high Rpms and the over drive indicator was blinking when the problem started but I hit the truck off and started it back up and it stopped. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what the problem is. This situation applied to 4r100 transmissions installed in 2001 e series, excursions, expeditions, f-150's, all f series super duty's, and navigators.
Your transmission has many moving components that allow the assembly of gears to transmit power from the engine to the driving axle. Am currently filing application for dispute settlement board. All they did was call the dealership and relay the same information we had already given them. You can see if your truck has the mechanical diode by determining the build date. I was fortunate not to be on a steep mountain grade or in rush hour traffic.
