Transmission Noises

I have a 2013 5.0 automatic with the stock 3.15 gears and I have started having what I believe to be transmission issues. I don't know if it is the transmission, the torque converter, or the rear end starting to go out.

I have brought it to my local Ford and a local transmission shop, and according to Murphy's Law, the car never acts up, even when I take a technician along for a ride to try and troubleshoot the car.

I have experienced my first to second gear shift taking a lot longer than normal and when I am in sport mode, whenever I tell it to shift to fourth from third, it will slip for a second or two before it "finds" fourth gear.

So, I have started tossing a camera underneath my car in hopes that I can catch the noise during a cold startup in the morning. My first video is a short one, and I will keep recording until I can seem to pinpoint the noise and capture a much better "noise."

The link to the clip I have recorded You can definitely hear, if you listen, right around the three second mark as the rpm's are ramping back down from a cold start, a grinding noise.

I have a 2014 gt auto, I experience similar issues. Do you use manual mode frequently? I find that when I use manual mode for a bit, than switch to drive it starts acting up. Could be the computer reacts off of your manual shifting pattern.

I have the same issue going into manual mode and into 6th gear quickly, I'll put my pedal down to accelerate, and it will slowly, or barely accelerate, same thing for braking and accelerating back to speed, I've found that sometimes mine works normal again if I tap the gas and then go normally

Yes, I use the sport mode almost all of the time.

I have a feeling it just might have something to do with the fact that I made about six or seven passes at a 1/4 mile track with full blown racing slicks, while having stock suspension and driveshaft.

That much traction from a dig should be really hard on a car.

Well with the auto you shouldn't be using slicks. You want to use drag radials.

On a manual car you want to use a slick because a drag radial will shock the rear too much with a clutch dump. On an auto car you don't have that problem so you want to use a drag radial as it will be faster with less rolling resistance.
