#5 - Transmission Noise problem of the 2004 Ford F-150
The car is a 2004 Ford f150. My F-150 supercrew has developed a problem with the drivetrain, primarily a loud grinding noise can be heard underneath the truck. The first time it occurred I thought my vehicle had run over some type of metallic object on the roadway. The noise went away after I merged onto a highway. Four days later I was operating on a city street when the same type noise occurred. The vehicle will not accelerate when the gas is depressed and the noise does not decrease when the gas is let off. Only after decreasing speed under 15 mph does the noise go away and the transmission feels like it slams out of gear just prior to that. An associate of mine who owns a 2005 F-150 with the exact same transmission experienced the same problem and recently had the transmission replaced under warranty. I contacted this dealer who informed me that they had replaced approximately 30 transmissions on 2004-2005 model years and the issue was a "known one". I would like to see Ford mandated to warranty the drivetrains in these trucks beyond the normal period. It was Jan. 28, 2007 when this transmission noise issue occurred.

#8 - Transmission Noise problem of the 2001 Ford F-150
The vehicle is a 2001 Ford F-150. The VIN of the car is 1FTRW08L91_. There aren't any real events leading to the failure. I took my truck into the local dealership (gary crossley Ford) to have the speed control recall work done. While there I asked to have a state inspection done as well. I was told by the service advisor that the lower ball joint were somewhat loose and would need replacing - so I had them do that as well as flush the transmission as well (this truck only had 62,000 miles on it). Following that it passed inspections - all was well. Not even one month later (possibly only 3 weeks) I tried backing from my parking spot at work and heard a *thunk* from the rear end. Not sure what it was I backed up more and heard it again. Put the truck in drive and there was a rubbing noise from underneath. I parked it and called a tow rig to take it back to the dealer. Upon hearing from them the following day I was told the carrier bearing in the rear end had "exploded" and I'd need to replace most everything in the rear end. Agreed to have the work done. Got a call a day later telling me that problem was fixed, but there was another - the *thunking* was still there and was likely the transmission. Had them check and sure enough, it needed to be replaced as well. Finding out that Ford was going to "cover" part of the transmission repair made me wonder if there weren't underlying problems that I was not, as an owner, alerted to. The truck never had a problem before these, and I've been very uncomfortable with it since. This transmission noise issue occurred Saturday, Feb. 17, 2007.
#9 - Transmission Noise problem of the 1999 Ford F-150
The car involved was a 1999 Ford f150. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 1FTRF18W4X_. I am on my second rear sliding window and it is leaking also. I am on my second transmission, and there is a clunking or slapping noise when you come to a stop. A Ford engineer says that this is normal or common on all new Ford pickup trucks. I disagree the truck did not make this sound when it was first new. They have tried 3 or 4 times to fix the popping noise in the dash and have not been able to get rid of it. This transmission noise problem happened on 12/08/1998.
