Cold air blowing out of the front vents now is great. The contact stated that while driving 65 mph, the engine caught on fire. The technician diagnosed that the transmission solenoid was defective and needed to be replaced. He said it was being ordered on fri and fixed on sat. The failure mileage was 233,577. The codes are P2106 and P2135. It would good if you could check for fuel and spark.
A police report was not filed. Please contact me as soon as possible in regards to handling this problem. I think it's total crap I have to pay for a kit and find someone who will follow the proper refit procedures and pay them when Ford is well aware of this issue and should be forced into a recall retro fit. It's a piece of crap! This is an ongoing problem and has happend during highway high speed driving. The driver and passenger sustained whiplash. I am a single mother of two small children, I do not have the money to fix this or buy another vehicle. Nov 28, 2012 As per your problem mentioned.
Had 69K miles at purchase. I contacted Ford customer support line and was transferred to my local dealer. I checked online and there was over 10,000 complaints made. Its main drawbacks were an unrefined V6 engine and unimpressive performance on our off-road course. Instead he fixed it so I can select between defrost and floor vents only no mid vent.
Also, the plastic panel just below the window on the tailgate cracked after a few years and wasn't covered under warranty. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure the failure 78,000. The diagnosis was of course my transmission. The transmission is hazardous and can disengage from loss of pressure while driving. I'm told the solenoid pac the od bands are to blame all three times. Mechanic said it would be expensive to fix, because would have to remove entire dash. I went online to carcomplaints.
Brought it to the dealer multiple times to be fixed. See if you can locate the small black vacuum line that goes inside the vehicle on the passenger side near the heater core. I was lucky to have a place to pull over safely. First time 2006 second 2010 this 2013. These complaints have been noted for years. That is the first thing a mechanic is supposed to check in this situation.
I have it to several mechanics and the Ford dealership, but they all say there isn't a problem. Shop ran diagnostic test and codes p0732, p0735 and p0775. I took it to my mechanic twice, found nothing wrong. Many people with the same problem. The contact stated that while driving 40 mph the transmission failed.
The dealer wouldn't repair it because they said it was out of warranty. I have choosen to not replace anything and it has been almost two years and everything in that department seems to be fine. Cooler blew, fluid drained out, couldn't check it. It's all I have and I must drive it to work each day! Serious safety issue, as you may press on gas thinking you're in reverse, and then accelerate!! Then the battery gauge rapidly dropped into the red zone. Probably a ground wire, but where is the wiring diagram? The contact took the vehicle to the dealer for a diagnostic test. Was intermittent at first, but is now constant. With this last failure they have given me to options rebuild again or put in a new transmission.
We then took it to another mechanic and they could not diagnose using the computer either. At 4:00 pm hasn't been looked at yet. The contact restarted the vehicle and the vehicle functioned properly. At times it's very difficult to put into reverse and when I put in reverse the vehicle jerks or lunges into gear. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure.
Ford does not know what the problem is. The contact stated that while driving, there was an abnormal increase in engine rpms yet the vehicle would not accelerate. Felt like truck was going to stall out. My Explorer transmission just stopped working going down the highway, almost got hit by a truck. The car would just shut off while driving. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the shift solenoid needed to be replace.
Spark plugs had never been replaced or removed since new. The contact then depressed the brake pedal and everything seized before stalling. Also, my radio goes louder when I turn it down. We have had an excellent record with this Ford Explorer! Electrical issues: Another issue I have is with the electrical. Check out free battery charging and engine diagnostic testing while you are in store. Put new solenoid block, problem still there. At times it hesitates to go into reverse and then clunks into the gear.
