    The dealer said they did flash the computer when they did a service bullitin update.Problem happens when your on the highway and you kick it into passing gear it over revs and won't down shift until you take your foot completely off the gas pedal and when your driving in mountainous rdwys between 35/45mph it feels like the transmission is slipping or the vehicle is vibrating when you excelerate.I did check the fluid levels and all was ok.Thanks for the replies,if you have any other ideas please let me know

Erratic shifting on 2001 f150 pickup


How many miles on it? Do you mean overdrive? Over drive will clunk when shifting in cruise. Mine lasted 212,000 miles but I have heard of them going out after 120,000, depends how you drive. That Traney is good till it starts acting up then you will need a complete overhaul. I got it done for $1800. Do not go to a Ford dealer, they quoted me $3200.

This car is known to have a couple problems with the automatic transmission. One possibility is that the differential pin has come loose and his hitting on the inside of the transmission. This requires an overhaul, however it doesn't sound like your problem. This transmission is also known for having the valve body in the transmission wear out and cause erratic shifting. This could be your problem. It is still a fairly expensive repair, but does not require the transmission to be removed or overhauled. Hope this helps.
