  1. I am trying to see if there are any other hybrid Explorer owners out there and what your user experience has been. I have been so thoroughly underwhelmed by my purchase last year. Here have been a just a few of the many and seemingly unending issues this vehicle has had in my 18mos of ownership: *techs not properly trained on how to secure the oil pan after the oil change so it spews oil everywhere *sh**ty fuel economy. <24mpg combined despite eco mode every time I drive and I am not a lead foot and I brake well before the stop. *THE TRANSMISSION FAILED AND HAD YO BE COMPLETELY REPLACED AT JUST OVER A YEAR AND WITH 20k MILES ON IT!! (might be bitter for a while on that one) *there is no option to just have rear wheel drive. *3 safety recalls and no fix for any of them yet *sync just decides to not work sometimes like a teenager working at the ice cream shop *the engine hood flaps relentlessly whenever there is the slightest bit of wind. *upholstery was not tucked in and mindful of craftsmanship *ugh.
  2. Hi everyone. Thanks for reading this. I just got my hands on a 2011 MKT with 230K on it but it's solid...aside from a transmission/torque converter that needs to be rebuilt. Anyone here know how to decipher the tranie codes? Mine is AA5Z7000HRM and this model is currently on 'back-order'. Every parts org I search comes back with AA5P 7000 XX. Not sure which of these substitutes for my 'unique' unit. p.s. getting shudder and 'rumble strip' noises from the TC. Maybe just replace that? Thx, W
  3. Im looking to trade my ranger for an 02 f250 7.3 6 spd. it has the ZF S6-650 6 Speed 4WD trans. it currently does not have 3rd and 4th. couple questions. A. How hard is it to rebuild these? B. How hard is it to find a good one without ordering a reman online? im heavily considering both options but want a second opinion from people that are far more expierenced with fords than me. im willing to do the work to rebuild it but im also just fine with swapping it.
  4. I have a 2007 Explorer Eddie Bauer V6. It has 198,000 miles. The transmission seems to be slipping in 2nd and 3rd gear. gets up to 3000 rpm before it shifts. runs fine in 5th on highway. could this be torque convertor or something else /worse. My wife had her 2005 Free Star torque convertor replaced under recall. The explorer is not worth a whole lot with the amount of miles I have, so I m not going to spend a lot on it. any ideas?
  5. I have a 2016 Ford Fusion with the standard 2.5L engine. This is a pretty good car for my needs, except for one problem. When accelerating from a stop, there is a long delay between the time I press the accelerator pedal and the engine accelerates. It is especially bad when making a turn. For example, if I stopped at an intersection, waiting to make a left turn, when I pull out to actually turn there is no acceleration for around two full seconds. Two seconds may not sound like much to some people, but when you are in a busy intersection and there is a big SUV coming at you, it is long enough to make you nervous. Because of the delay, instinct causes me to push the pedal farther, which means that when the engine does decide to accelerate it pulls hard enough to bark the tires. I have talked to other Fusion owners who have the same problem, and I have talked to mechanics at the Ford dealership. I have heard that this is caused by the Driver Learning Transmission, the Curve Control system, or the transmission being designed for a more powerful engine but used on all engines. I am not aware of my model Fusion having a Learning Transmission or Curve Control System, and the transmission shift points are controlled by the computer, so I don't put a lot of faith in any of those theories. The common response is that nothing can be done about it and I just have to adapt my driving habits to suit the acceleration delay. None of the people saying that works in a busy traffic area like I do. Has anyone on the form encountered this problem? Has anyone found a solution? Thanks in advance, Rick
  6. Hello all, SCoville 619 from San Diego here. New member, and I am looking for a tech savvy forum on the 2003-2005 Lincoln Aviators. I have owned a 96 Thunderbird that was an impound magnet, but faaaaast, a 95 Mercury Cougar Xr7, with the most unusual plenum I had yet seen, and practically every...single... motor related issue found with the 4.6, EXCEPT the cracking of the plastic plenum as mine was cast aluminum. an 05 Montego, with a real bad pressure valve in the steering rack and my new purchase, a 2003 Aviator with the 4V 4.6L modular!...an auction purchase with 205k miles. ( during the inspection, I didn't press the info button on center console to switch from trip to mileage, thinking it a steal with the 166k miles listed). she has some problems and I am hoping to find solutions here. Please, if you can point me to threads regarding overdrive cutoff not responding, ( od off /buster light lit constantly on the dash), the old gear selector wont move with foot on brake, sereto schematics, and upgrading to SYNC from an 2003 model, tune up on a 4V, um... best suggestion for front suspension parts and bushings, and... what's up with the DVD? Thank you!
  7. Do we have confirmation on the engines and transmissions that will be used in the 2019 Focus? I assume it will have the 8 speed but you know what happens when you assume!
  8. The transmission issues with Ford are absolutely ridiculous. I just bought out the lease of my 2014 Ford Focus a month ago and now the car is stuck in the shop with transmission issues. I was driving to an important appointment (which I missed) when it just stopped moving forward and I lost all power. Anyone else have something similar happen? If so, what was wrong with your car/how much did it cost? It’s been at the dealership for a week and a half now and I still have no exact answer as to what is wrong. Apparently, just to diagnose the problem the whole transmission needs to be overhauled and the labor alone is around $2000!! That’s before I even know what’s wrong and know how much the part to fix it will cost. A year ago I heard about a transmission recall and had the clutch replaced, is there any way it could be related? If I had known that a car this new would have transmission issues I never would have bought it in the first place. The dealership can’t even work with me and give me a loaner car while the work is being completed. All I can hope is that we will figure out the issue and will have a car back soon! I used to think very highly of Ford vehicles but after this catastrophe and all the things I’ve been reading about all the transmission issues Ford cars have I don’t think my next car will be from Ford. I mean c’mon, it’s a 2014, I shouldn’t be having transmission issues! My 2001 Mitsubishi was more reliable than this and I would take that car back in a heartbeat at this point! If anyone has any advice or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated!
  9. I have 90K on my truck and have recently had my Transmission Flushed and now my truck is slamming into 2nd gear. There was NO issue before the service and I also had all 4 struts replaced and the differentials serviced as well. It has progressively gotten worse over the last few days and it is eased a little by taking the OD off. Also it isn't as bad with you roll slowly into 2nd gear. PLEASE HELP! Anyone had this problem. I love my truck and really can't afford a whole new Transmission over this...
  10. I added to much transmission fluid and tried to drain some out by pulling the drain plug and putting it back in when I think I've drained enough but the level on the dipstick has not seemed to have gone down any. I've done this twice now. Any idea what's happening?
