Your vehicle isn't set up for the trans. It would also clunk and hang up in reverse. Can you say piece of junk. This is not my first Ford Explorer 4x4 and I have never experience any hesitations when the gears change in any vehicles I have ever driven or owned. You can not go by what they tell you. The failure mileage was approximately 100,000.
After researching this problem on the internet I have found that this transmission problem is very common with the 2004 Explorer model. We're here to help you find that perfect Transmission Assembly for your Ford Explorer. It had about 18,000 miles on it. While driving the transmission will slip from second to third gear. They replaced the tranny computer module the first time and said it was ok, Well I had the same problem again. I would appreciate a response or at least some good advice. I explained the shifting and acceleration problem in detail.
It wont fix her, just delays the inevitable. Ford has put bandaids on the problem until the warranty is up, then the consumer gets stuck. I'm now looking at Chevy barf I have to try something different. The gas cap was located behind the license plate and on every single Grenada, the spring on the license plate broke so they all drove around with their license plate facing the ground, wide open. So I did, because I need my truck. I paused and hit the gas again without changing gears and it reversed. When driving, the transmission shifts firmly and on time and theres no slipping.
We sell only high quality used Ford Explorer Sport Trac automatic transmissions, with 1-3 years warranty and free shipping. The auto 4x4 system is kind of a joke, it has auto 4x4, 4x4 high, 4x4 low options. When you put it in reverse it did nothing for a few seconds then jump into gear. Occurs daily on highway after letting off accelerator and coasting. I'm sure somone will have to die before its dealt with. The 1991 Lincoln town car 4.
Just do not ever buy a Ford again!. Dealer said this was normal in first time I complained. The approximate failure mileage was 49,000. If the tranny had gone first it would have gone to the bone yard. The 2002-2005 Explorer has a very well-established record of expensive transmission failure at under 100k miles.
It began shifting super hard when I would put it into reverse. On the third repair trip the problem returned before we ever got home. The manufacturer was contacted and they advised that there were no recalls for the vehicle. Finally it just stopped, wouldn't go into gear. It feels like the transmission slips into neutral, then clunks and grabs the next gear. Ford Explorers are the worst vehicles I've ever driven. I am on a fixed income.
I have babied this vehicle since I purchased it, this vehicle should have lasted another 10 years at least with the low mileage I put on it. My car has 45,000 miles and no where in my paperwork or my car manual does it state I would have to put and oil additive in my car by 45,000 miles. How about a little justice here for the consumer?. The dealer replaced the ring and pinion gear, axel seals, clutch pack and had to reprogram the 4 wheel drive computer. After reading online apparently it's a big problem with Explorers.
I have tried 4 times to get them to fix this but they keep saying its normal. After all, we are talking about an early 2000's Ford Explorer here, people. Now the transmission is starting to slip. When do you think an aftermarket company will start correcting some of these symptoms with a kit. It seems your agency should protect not just from injury, but from frauds and deception.
In addition, the contact stated that the driver and passenger side sun visor joints were failing sporadically and causing the visors to obstruct the contact's vision of the roadway. Took the vehicle several times back to dealership. When the contact shifted into reverse gear the vehicle would not move for approximately four to five minutes. The shop reported that there was no particulate or debris in the pan, so it is probably something internal. The only difference in the bolt pattern is the pocket for the starter it still bolts up, just can't get the original starter to fit in.
It lunges hard when put into reverse. In addition, the gears were slipping when shifting gears. Between the trans and all of the other adaptations, it's just not worth the money. Ford refuses to accept any responsibility for this even though every owner is experiencing this at the same mileage on the same model vehicle. The car has a new appointment with the dealer and I think they are going to replace the transmission.
