Re: Transmission problem

First of all I don't believe that any vehicle lubricant is good for 150k except for some types of coolant. secondly is it auto or manual. From what you are saying it sounds auto

Re: Transmission problem

I think in large part its supposed to be them trying to make a "low maintenance vehicle" so I don't doubt they told you that. Best thing I can tell you to do is take it to the dealer and have them look at it

Have you checked your fluid level? Sometimes in an automatic transmission the fluid level can get low and that does make the transmission act up

I don't think the fluid level is low that was supposedly the reason why Ford dropped in the sealed transmission... to eliminate leaks. But I have an 07 auto and mine started doing this at 76000 miles. As far as Ford yeah they tell you the fluid is good for 150k miles but they don't tell you to replace the transmission screen every 50k miles. But in order to change the screen you have to flush the fluids :-\. Save yourself from a tranny disaster and get both screen and fluid changed regardless off your milage!
