    A ford tech expert emailed me that its not my coils ... or it would "bang" he said he may be hydraulic or the solenoid oack in the transmission...

    I go to my ford dealership for car service... but they do not seem to have the problem correctly diagnosed ..

    Thanks for your input ... guess you are not loacl to Orange County CA?

    This is his reply verbatim-- PS I heard that India has more children on the "Honor Role" than we have people in the US...

    "From your description, it seems like it is a transmission concern because if you had a coil concern, it would be missing. If it's "banging" going into drive, then into reverse, you may have a hydraulic concern with the solenoid pack inside the transmission. There also may be a callibration update for this concern. There is an adaptive learn strategy for shift timing and feel, but that usually is when the battery is disconnected or loses power. The PCM relearns the adaptive strategies. The cost of repair depends on what is found with diagnosis. This is all assuming the transmission from your description is the cause. If you don't want to go back to the dealer, I am sure there are other trans repair facilities that can perform the needed diagnostics. "

I would not charge any thing more since i have to remove them to test them any way so instead of instaling the old ones i would be putting the nw onew in but it depends on whom you are working with

My 2002 Ford Explorer wont crank!

I'm assuming the coilpack got wet!! Check if there is any power to the coil before changing. If thats fine, replace the coil. If there is no power, check your electrical circuit for the coil. Hopefully this helps
