Automatic Transmission problems of the 2002 Ford F-250
Four problems associated with automatic transmission have been reported for the 2002 Ford F-250.
Automatic Transmission problem #1
2002 Ford F-250 crew cab - transmission temperature gauge always registers hot, even if the truck has been sitting over night. Ford service bulletins says this is normal. If this is normal, what is the purpose of the gauge on the dash? how can I tell if my transmission is over heating when hauling a heavy load? the gauge is not reliable. Ford tells me the gauge will register if the transmission begins to over heat. Well it's registering even when the transmission is cold from sitting over night! how can I rely on this??? Ford tells me they will not replace the transmission if it is damaged from overheating. Well, I have no reliable way of telling if it is overheating. Why put a gauge on the dash only for show? why should I pay extra for something that serves absolutely no purpose if Ford said it was normal. The failure date was Wednesday, February 20, 2002.
Automatic Transmission problem #2
The vehicle involved is a 2002 Ford f250 super duty. I have a 2002 f250 super duty. When I come to a full stop, and then take off there is a feeling that something is slack in the drive train somewhere. You can feel a double bump kinda of feeling. When towing a trailer it is worse. The Ford dealer said some trucks do this and some do not, but they can not find the problem, which I believe they think it is a normal function. This problem occurred on March 4, 2003.
Automatic Transmission problem #3
The car involved is a 2002 Ford f250 super duty. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 1FTNW21S12_. I own a 2002 f250, 4x4, four door, off-road package, camper package, tow package, v-10, automatic tranny. When I first start the vehicle and place it in reverse, after about three seconds, I hear a loud "thump". Noise comes from a little right of center and in front of the dash. Dealer cannot duplicate. Problem happens about once every thirty starts. This started happening within a month of buying the vehicle new. This automatic transmission issue occurred Thu., Aug. 1, 2002.
Automatic Transmission problem #4
The car involved was a 2002 Ford f250 super duty. Transmission temperature gauge registers a temperature when transmission is cold. It registers the same if transmission is hot or cold. This automatic transmission problem happened on Wednesday, February 20, 2002.
