2006 Ford Explorer slipping when accelerated

Hi ,

As stated above, I have a Ford 2006 4x4 automatic Explorer with over 40,000 miles on it. Lately it feels like the suv is slipping whenever accelerated. I took it to a Ford dealership for repair and they changed the wheel bearing. I am still having the problem and now Ford is saying they have no idea what the problem could be. Can anyone offer a word of advice?

Change the auto transmission fluid and filter. Pay attention to the smell of the fluid. If it smells burnt, there is likely burned or worn clutches. You can compare the smell of the old fluid with the new fluid if you're a newbie. it also doesn't hurt to save a sample to share with an expert if you know one. Also pay close attention in the bottom of the pan for metal filings, fragments etc. A fine layer of black silt is usually normal. If the trans is burned out, there will be evidence in the pan. NEVER rev the engine to get an auto to go into gear, and avoid letting the transmission slip at all costs. Overhaul is a major job and very expensive. I don't know why they'd change wheel bearing on a slipping auto. Or why they couldn't diagnose it for you. Hope this helps.

It depends on whether or not the drive train is actually going in to 4x4 mode. If the 4x4 is working properly, I would think it is just burned out light bulbs and not an issue with the operation of the system.

Hi,
The first place to start may be to make sure the lug nuts are all tight on the wheels.
Then , if a ply separates within a radial tire it will give those symptoms, so I would recommend having a tire shop have a look.

Rear end slipping?


Differentials are direct-drive devices -- they cannot slip.

This really sounds like erratic shifting taking place right at the shift point. Gentle acceleration is the trickiest shift for an automatic. When accelerating harder, the transmission shifts more abruptly, which is a much easier shift to complete.

My 1998 ford explorer 4x4 while accelerating has a bumping feel


We had a 1997 Ford Explorer that did something very similar. We thought the transmission was going out, but it was the exhaust manifold gasket. Cost us a couple of hundred at the dealer to get it fixed, but that was a few years ago.

Check transmission


if you have over 40,000 miles on the car it may be due for a tune up and new drive belt
