The PCM is the main computer on most Fords
It does have powertrain functions, such as your
There is no fixing a PCM,they are cleaned ,tested & repaired,
in a factory, in the aftermarket parts supply chain
There is no changing a transmission
You either remove the trans & rebuild it or
you install a factory reman
You never,never--- install a used salvage yard trans
PCM's hardly ever fail. There is only about a 3%
chance of that.
Given your vehicles transaxle history,I would say it
is shot & needs to come out & do as I mentioned above
The freestar & whatever it was called before,has the worst
transaxle failure rate bar none in the industry
May want to get away from the all to popular van type vehicles
All the vans for the last 30 years fail early & many times
Transaxles in general are not good at all,even changing the
fluids often,unfortunately rear drive is almost gone,that is the
way to go,but who wants a big heavy suv
Water won't be an issue for the PCM
If & I don't know you have an asian trans in there with a
module on the trans ,then water may be a problem
I would hope you mechanic is at a trans shop,as anywhere
else I don't think your in the correct place to diagnose the issues
If you think about your question,you want someone to tell your
professional mechanic, how to do their job ,as your not going
to work on it yourself.
We only can offer so much,mostly guesses,as you need
any product to road test & do some testing
