Let me know what the dealer says. I am once again at this time taking my vehicle in repeatedly and hoping that on that day someone will experience the same things which I am speaking of, just like they did in the beginning of this problem. Has done this since I rolled off of the lot. Vehicle has a non-serviceable transmission cooler. A car almost ran into the back of my truck before my truck slammed into gear and I was able to accelerate.
I contacted Ford's complaint and customer service departments. After about 5 months the issues slowly started to show themselves again. Each time I have gone to the service department they are looking for codes and the problem is not producing any codes. This improved the performance of the vehicle. On April 1st I was traveling around an off ramp from a major highway to merge into traffic on a major interstate and when I attempted to accelerate and merge into traffic and to my surprise the truck was in neutral. Suddenly the truck just speeded up out of control!!!.
They said they could not get it to duplicate the problem. After arriving at destination, stopped at store. After it was discovered the service department tore down the transmission and replaced parts and this did not resolve it. After arriving at stop sign, stopped when restarted, the engine accelerated brakes would not stop the vehicle. Had to quickly put transmission into neutral to avoid truck moving into the road and hitting other vehicles. They told me to drive it until it gets worse and then bring it back. Our discount used 2008 Ford F-150 transmissions come directly from a dependable network of modern junk yards.
Well 2 months and 3500 miles later still doing it and no call. I was almost involved in an accident because this brand new truck does not shift properly and Ford does not think it is important enough to investigate more and to fix the problem. I didn't know what to think about that. Despite the fact that I have bought 7 Ford trucks in the past - 6 of them at this particular dealership , they were not willing to work with me on a deal for trading in my truck. I quickly threw the gear in nuetral and turned off the key. Buying a used 2008 Ford F-150 transmission from a non-reliable dealer is an unnecessary risk.
I put my foot on the brakes and the truck would not stop!! They told me that I had gotten 47,000 miles out of my truck before this problem occurred , and that I could probably get another 47,000 miles out of it before it does it again!!! On about 12 to 15 occasions the transmission has shifted into neutral when I am traveling between 15 to 30 miles an hour. After about 1000 miles I noticed that the engine appeared to stall when accelerating uphiill changing gears and that the rpm's would rev during city driving. A month later Ford acknowledged the issue existed and as dealers to hold off on repair attempts until engineering did mre research. Slips in and out of gear at around 15-30 mph. This recurred 4 or five times when stopping at stop light, stop sign and stopping at motel. After coasting for a few seconds and I attempt to accelerate is when I realize the truck is in neutral because the rpms go up and the truck does not accelerate.
The truck is unsafe to drive and could cause me or my wife and children to be involved in an accident. I have a copy of this from the oasis on my vehicle. They denied my request for assistance in this matter as they claim thier analysis does not indicate any evidence of a manufacturing or design defect. I took the truck into the Ford dealership for diagnosis and repair. Buy a recycled 2008 Ford F-150 transmission and save thousands of dollars. I went to the Ford dealership where I purchased my truck to try to trade in my truck for another vehicle. As soon as I did this, the brakes skidded on and my truck just barely stopped before hitting the car in front of me!! After I let off the gas pedal the truck will then slam into gear.
Just wondering if any one else has had the same issues with ford. Drove about 60 miles on freeway. Vehicle has a non-serviceable transmission cooler. Vehicle has a non-serviceable transmission cooler. A month later the attempted a download of information to unit.
I have been in contact with several people to get this resolved. Now it has become a safety issue because when i was turning off of a highway i became stuck in an on coming traffic lane for a second. Took truck into dealer and they are inspecting for problems. Took to ford service, they told me that engineering knows of this and as soon as there is a reprogram ready they will call me. Check also our 2008 Ford F-150 manual transmission catalog. I have taken my Ford back to the dealer two times to have it fixed and they say they can not fix it because it does not happen all the time. This has an automatic transmission.
The next morning this recurred when stopping at motel office. Had to quickly put transmission into neutral to avoid hitting other vehicles. I applied the brakes , and again the truck would not stop!!!! The problem is intermittent and I had to go to the service department several times to attempt to prove the issue exist. I have reported it to Ford customer relations center and they say they can not fix it until it happens more frequently and then they can duplicate the occurrence. This recurred twice when stopping at stop light and stop sign.
I did not realize just how much danger they were putting me in until April 1, 2008 because the truck had not ever shifted into neutral while I was coasting around an off ramp and attempting to merge into traffic. Please call for customer service and availability at 1-877-866-8372 ex. When restarted, when preparing to enter road, the engine accelerated to about 4,000 rpms when it should have been at idle. I am in constant fear of this occurring again!!! We sell only high quality used Ford F-150 automatic transmissions, with 1-3 years warranty and free shipping. I had just taken my foot off of the brakes my foot was still resting on top of the brakes and I was coasting to a stop. Brakes would not stop the vehicle.
