Question about Ford Freestar

1 Answer

I was driving today in my 2004 Ford Freestar van when all of a sudden the transmission stopped being engaged. I pulled over, no problem with the moter, but it would not slip back into drive reverse etc. No warning lights or anything- just a quiet whine when i pressed on the accelerator. what is the problem? Does this mean a new transmission? Only 70,000 k's on the van...

I have seen a problem with torque convertors on these vehicles, they will just all the sudden neutral out and that is it no noise no codes nothing... alot of times depending on the failure of the convertor just the convertor can be changed.... what usually happens is the splines inside of the convertor sheer off and once a new convertor is put in everything is back to normal.

My auto transmission for a Ford 2004 Escape with 2WD only engages in reverse. When problem suddenly showed up i was able to drive car in front drive by engaging 1 or 2. stopped car and all forward mov


I would have it towed to a different shop for a second opinion.
To start at the beginning, if it works in reverse but not drive the linkage is working.
When you put the transmission in low or second you are bypassing most of the sensors and valves. You put it in first or second gear and it stays there.
It could be a long list of things from the valve body to the pump to a solenoid or sensor.
There is a good chance the problem could be fixed without needing an overhaul.
You never take a knife to a gunfight, so you wouldn't have anybody but a transmission shop work on a transmission.
When they recommend an overhaul, they are pulling your trans out and replacing it with someone's rebuilt out of the crate. No worries on their part.

2006 freestar will not go into any gear. all gears give the apperance of neutral except park.


This is a recall just like the 2005 Freestars. Your Freestar more and likely has a defective torque converter and worn out splines in your transmission. This is a life threatening recall and Ford inc has been looking at it as a casual recall. Get this to your Ford dealer today and have them fix it at no charge to you. Problem solved.

All you need is a 13mm boxed end wrench. The tensioner pulley is the one all the way on the bottom towards the rear of the van. You can reach it under the van. Slide under the van in front of the passenger front tire and you will wee the pulley. Put the wrench on the bolt and pull towards you to release the tension on the belt.
