Automatic transmission problems

Hello everyone. I really hope someone will be able to help me with my transmission problem. I'm driving a 2011 GT premium with auto. There are a couple of mods on it and i will list them later just in case. The problem began about 3 days ago while driving about 20 mph or so. I had to pass a bicycle and accelerated a bit. Suddenly it felt like the car stalled and the rear wheels looked up. I shifted the car to neutral and pulled over. After turning the car off and back on everything went back to normal. Today I stopped for gas and when I took off something felt off. The car was in D but didn't move when I took my foot of the break. I gave it a little gas and it started moving. As soon as I lifted my foot of the gas the rear looked up again. I shifted in first and suddenly everything is fine. Does anyone have any ideas? The car has the following mods: Boss 302 intake, stainless steel headers and exhaust, 4.2 gear ratio and a 93 sct tune.
Thanks for your help.

He has had an account since 2011.... I don't think he is a troll.... If he happens to be then he is once heck of a committed troll!

Seems he has a confirmed status of: No troll!

I have a manual (Crunchy MT-82) in mine so I can't help much... Not that I could anyways...

Well excuse me. I made the assumption based on the fact that since he has been a member since 2011 and has only made 8 posts I stand corrected.
Try the shift relay pack.

Ok well excuse my language but what the f.... ist that supposed to mean "a troll"? Maybe because I'm from Germany I got a different understanding of what this Forum used to be about but insulting people is not helping a bit thelastsumurai. Judging by your name I guess you drive a Nissan. Anyway I have done a bit of research and there have been some issues with the 6R80 transmission. Unfortunately I couldn't find any information about a similar problem like mine. So if anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate it.

OH $HI* I'm very sorry. I didn't see that you from Europe. A troll is a person that comes onto forums and ask weird/disruptive questions. Again I am very sorry....
I know your probably not in warranty but it may be worth it to have ford diagnose it.
By the description you gave it may very well be your shift pack (relays)

My battery went dead and my auto tranny went bonkers. It was stuck in 2nd gear only. Had to disconnect battery for a while and it somehow reset itself.

Unfortunately no change. Still the same problem after disconnecting the battery. But what is even stranger is that there are no error codes listed.

I have a feeling long term these new cars are going to be a nightmare electrically. I have a lot of vehicles. My daily driver, 15 AWD fusion sat for about 9 days, while mostly driving the stang through a long stretch of really nice weather.

The fusion then had a dead batt (I keep batt tenders on everything else, so usually not a problem and 9 days is pretty short to kill a batt, without doing something stupid like leaving lights on, etc..) .

Jumping it, it then came back fine battery wise. Out of no where I come up to the car parked in a lot later that day and the left rear window was halfway down. I raised it back up, but then it lowered itself and raised itself back up halfway again. I tried all kinds of stuff and even went through the manual to see if something like a kidsafe mode got enabled. I'm thinking great, this will probably happen during some monster rain storm.

I then proceeded to activate that window up and down several times and then disconnecting/reconnecting the battery while the window was moving. As with the trans on my stang, something finally reset itself and it has been good ever since.

Obviously you can not disconnect battery while driving, but I guess if it is still happening, at least you can reproduce it for a dealer.

I wish they had an electrical/electronics only for extended warrantee. I want to mod my car after 3 year warrantee, but I'd love to have the electronic stuff covered for 8 years.

The battery in our Edge Sport recently died. It's a 2013 and had 14,000 miles on it.

Well I have to say that I love my car very much but the quality is definitely something where there is a lot of room for improvement. There are things or problems that just shouldn't happen to a car with in the first 5 years and I had my share. Especially since Ford is giving me no warranty at all over here. Yes I know the car was never sold here but what does that have to do with things that shouldn't be break. I give you one example. I had my car for about a year and both my power seats stopped working. When I was back in the US i went to the dealer where I bought the car and told them about the issue. I even offered to send them the old engines if they would get me the new ones. Answer was "we need the car here in oder to do that" since Ford is asking about $1400 just for the engines I keep my seats like they are. Back to the transmission problems. I will see a specialist next week and see what he will tell me. I will definitely post the results as soon as possible. Thanks for all the advice guys.

Truer words were never spoken.. That's why I upgrade cars every two/three years.

I haven't seen any ads for copperhead repair yet.
I don't really want to give up my '14. I think they are the best looking Mustangs for the last 40 years. I may trade my '11 for a 2016 GT500, I think that will be a sweet DD. Not the GT350 I don't live on the track, and I think that it will be an expensive car to maintain.

Hello everyone. Like promised here the results of my transmission problem. The tester showed a problem with the solenoid C. The problem now ist that nobody over here knows anything about the car or it's transmission. Does anyone know where I can get this solenoid thing or give me a part number so that I can see if any company will ship to Germany. Thanks guys.

I have a similar issue every now and again. It's like the transmission attempts to shift and I just heard and clunk and feel a big jerk. It's happened a couple times at low speeds either coming to an intersection or nearing a stop slowing down. Has also done what yours does where I go to pull out of a parking lot or whatever and it's like it stays in 2nd gear but then kicks out of it and is fine. Very strange but figured maybe it was a fluke. How did they come to the conclusion it was a solenoid and Where's it located? Do you have to drop the transmission?

No you don't have to drop transmission. Just the transmission oil pan. I had this issue with with 11GT, and after the shift pack changes all was fine.
Of cousre that doesn't mean for sure that this is the problem with the OP issue. I believe there is a TSB on that. I'll try to find it.

TSB 11-11-11.

My car was manufactured after the cutoff date mentioned in the TSB so don't be concerned about it.

Hey guys. I want to thank all of you for trying to help me. Here is a quick update on what's going on. I talked to a ford service rep and they told me that my car was still under powertrain warranty (3 day left 😂). So I took the car to a dealer with a special contract with ford usa. Right now they try to get my car fixed under warranty. Unfortunately ford Germany is sending some dude from headquarters to look at my car. Since the performance parts are still on the car I fear that they will try to tell me that warranty will not cover the repair. I returned my car to the stock tune just in case the will try to read the computer. This brings me to a new questions. If they start the car with the stock tune will it damage the engine? I tried it for about 5 sec and the engine was running horrible. Oh and also the pulled the oil pan from the transmission and said the oil was burned and that there where some metal flakes in the pan. Not sure what that is supposed to mean. Thanks again guys.

The parts should be pulled off if you switch to the stock tune. Also, it won't matter, they will know it has been tuned, the ECU resets the key cycles or something.

Well then I guess I sh.... out of luck because the car is not driveable and it's sitting in the dealership. Plus it would take about 6 or so hours to ripp everything apart and I doubt they will let me do it there. There wad just not enough time because the warranty expired 1 day after taking it into the dealer. By the way my car has this tsb 11-11-11. Does anyone know if this could have caused the problem? Thanks for the information last samurai. The best part is that the ford dealer didn't even know that this tsb existed. He just found out because I told him to look it up.

Heck, for what ford might hit you for, might be worth having a "built" trans done locally since your warantee is toast across the board and ford probably won't even warantee the new trans unless you go back to stock (which would be more labor for them to put you back to stock).

or if you can find cheap shipping.................

This is a ****ty situation and a good lesson in not purchasing a car that's not supported in your part of the world. The auto on this car is next door to bulletprooof from most reports but, there's always a few.

If Ford won't help you, or can't because nobody has the knowledge base locally to fix this, best to have it towed home, then evaluate your options. Hopefully you have space to store it for a bit, that can be a at a bit of a premium anywhere on the conEU.

Well I keep you guys updated on the situation. I won't be able to afford the repair at the dealership. They are asking 8500 Euro to replace the transmission. Thats insane. Maybe the guy who comes by has a heart and says lets repair under warranty (hope dies last right 😄). The problem is that non one over here is fixing things anymore. All the mechanics do now a days is replacing. Plan B is definitely finding someone who will and can fix the transmission. The only problem then would be the parts. Since I don't know what is broken I can not order anything. Shipping takes forever and since I live somewhat on the countryside I will have to buy another car.

Yep....this would be a ****ty situation if you were stateside. It's magnified gigantically by your being in Germany.

This is going to cost you a boatload of money no matter what, unless Ford has a change of heart here and helps you out. This is unlikely as it's a non-resident to that market vehicle, they've likely got no one with training to diagnose or repair and parts are made of unobtainium.

You may want to contact one of the auto trans builders in the states and see what building one would cost, have it shipped over and install it yourself or at a local shop. Auto trans install is pretty straightforward. Exedy or Power by the Hour do this work, as do many others. Conversely, you could get a rebuild kit and have at it. From the looks of it, it's like rebuilding a motorcycle clutch 6 times over.

Here's a rebuild kit:

My car was manufactured after the cutoff date mentioned in the TSB so don't be concerned about it.
Does anyone know where to find the date? I would like to know if mine falls under it.

Hi guys. It's been a while since my last post but I wanted to inform that Ford replaced my transmission for free. Unfortunately they didn't look into the old transmission to tell me what caused the problem but since I didn't have to pay a cent I'm happy. It took about 3 months but since it was a pretty cold winter anyway I didn't miss my car that much. But it sure feels good having it back. Thanks again for your support.

Good news!

They rebuilt the mt82 on my last 5.0 when it randomly imploded....that was some hard negotiations too but, like for you, they did eventually put it to rights.

Good luck with the renewed ride!

Hello everyone, I have a problem regarding my '07 V6 transmission, The O/D light has come on after driving it for about 15 minutes on city streets, and comes on right away if I get on the highway, my question is can you diagnose the problem adequately by getting the error code, or do you have to get into the trans to find the problem. The reason I ask is I paid $500 to service it a month ago and now this!

I'm glad you got your stang back but I thought you should know that your transmission is built under license from ZF and is the same as used in rear wheel drive BMW's and Audi's since 2000. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_6R_transmission
