This sound like it is almost certainly the the Automatic trans fluid filter is clogged. This filter needs to be replaced at regular intervals. Once the filter is clogged, when the oil gets hot it builds pressure and will not flow freely through the filter and or oil ports inside the transmission. And this could also be causing erratic shifting problems. if you have never had your transmission flushed, i would not recommend doing it now. A few drain and fills first. To read an article on when you should and should not flush your transmission, please visit my blog where i go in depth about adverse effects dirty transmission fluid can have.

Trans slips between 2nd and 3rd shift


MV could be the problem. Always work thru issue before buying ANY can of additive. Generally those things just mask the issue..not fix it. Change your fluid,and if that doesnt correct it,then take it in and have the tranny bands tightened. most shops do this relatively in expensively.

Hi there,

As your Auto transmission is fully electronic, it could be anything from faulty sensors sending incorrect signals to the trans computer, or faulty internal components. Your best bet is to have the trans computer scanned for 'fault codes' (as the computer monitors and retains all faults) by your local Ford dealership.

This process will identify the likely component/s which are causing this problem.

My guess is, there may be a problem with the 2nd clutch (yes that's right, automatics have internal clutches!), input and/or output shaft switches sending incorrect signals to the computer.

But, there could be so many other possibilities....so, I recommend you get the codes scanned and go from there.....

Transmissioon


is this truck an automatic or is it a standard im thinking its probably an automatic so if you use the shifter to manually start off in 1 then drive bring up the revs and then shift it into 2nd bring up revs then shift into drive and see what happens does it go into gear or does it stay in first still ? is it 4 wheel drive ? what size motor is in it ? there is a shift relay under the hood in the relay box you could replace it and it may shift for you if this doesnt help replace the speed sensor located on the tailstock of the transmission does the speedometer work while in first gear ? does the truck have plenty of transmission oil ? does the engine run smooth ? these questions will help me diagnose the problem easier with out actually physically being there, good luck and get back to me asap i'll do some reaserch ok bye for now
