While driving on the freeway at 75mph a warning light came on saying transmission fault. The overdrive light was flashing. The truck continued to drive normally but the warning indicators kept going on. There were no codes when it was taken to the shop although the shop said they have a retaining clip that wears out and causes all the parts to shift. This resulted in having to replace the transmission. Ford needs to recall the defective parts. Many other f 150 owners have had the same problem. Transmission replacement cost more than I bought the truck for!.

My 2002 Ford f150 needed to have the transmission rebuilt. My overdrive light was blinking on and off and I later found out the entire transmission needed to be rebuilt. I've been reading online from several people who have had this same problem. It seems like Ford has some type of problem with this year. I don't understand why there can not be a recall in regards to this problem.
