Failure Date: 08/08/2011

2010 F-250 40k miles has been in and out of the shop since purchased 14 service repairs and 8 of the 14 repairs have been major, transmission was leaking and down shifting while on the highway, had to be repaired, cruise control went out while on the freeway and the truck lost all power while on a highly congested highway, it has had the same problem a few times now, defective instrument cluster fuel, speedometer. Egr valves went out and stalled in the middle of a intersection with a 30 foot trailer, which that happened twice, Ford says well this has never happened to any other vehicles that they have dealt with. This has reoccurred multiple times, which causes traffic congestion and could possibly result in major issues or accidents, truck was purchased to haul a trailer and we do not trust it at all since it has broke down so many times. When you press the accelerator loaded or unloaded it has a hesitation before it goes, sometimes it takes awhile to get up to speed, fuel injectors have been replaced also. When the cleaning exhaust system is on it starts to decelerate and you lose a good amount of power.

Failure Date: 02/10/2011

2004 Ford f250 6. 0 diesel. Started shuddering a bit while goind from park, drive to reverse. I found transmission fluid on my garage floor, took the truck to the dealer for repair. 4000 dollars to fix a hole in the transmission caused by identical circumstances involving Ford recall 05b27. The mechanic pulled the "oasis" report and found no recall for my vehicle based on the "VIN". I have contacted Ford with no satisfaction. I was advised to pay for the repair and maybe there will be a recall at a future date, at which point I would be reimbursed. Again, this defect is exactly the same as described in recall 05b27. There is no difference in what happened to my vehicle and what Ford tried to stem with the recall. It is an admitted engineering defect which should give cause for an expanded recall.

Alot of people have experienced this problem and there needs to be a recall on this transmission.

While towing our horse trailer the engine stopped running. It was towed to dealer and the engine problem was repaired under Ford warranty. They told me there was a problem with the transmission. The mechanic said this is a common failure and I should write in. As I understand it, there is a snap ring located in the transmission, for some unknown reason, this snap ring pops off , is then sucked between the top of the transmission case and a gear, which causes the transmission case to crack. The mechanic said the case is cracked on the top. He has seen many of these failures. Because I didn't buy the extended warranty, this repair will cost approx $4,500. 00. This truck has low mileage (41900 mi). I have been told this has been a common problem of Ford trucks from 2002 - 2005.

Failure Date: 08/20/2006

I purchased the Ford, F-250, diesel power stroke, 7. 3 liter, auto transmission in late 2000. On August 20, 2006 I was traveling northbound highway 49 in auburn, California, from bell road. At the light, I proceeded forward and noticed my vehicle remained in first gear, and would not shift. I tried several times to let my foot off of the throttle in order to reduce the rpms. After several attempts, the vehicle shifted hard into 2nd gear and proceeded forward. This continued to occur until I was able to get home. I took the truck to cottman transmission in placerville calif on 8-30-06, as according to future Ford, where I purchased the truck, the vehicle was out of warranty. After test driving the vehicle with a rep from cottman transmission, he determined 2nd gear was lost and there might be other problems. He also stated that rebuilding 2001 Ford f250 transmissions was a common procedure for them. He explained one of the design problems and failure points on the transmission. I called other transmission shops to confirm the representatively comments regarding the 2001 Fords. All concur that Ford build an under performing transmission on that make and year, and that this truck is a common rebuild for them. I believe that the performance of drive train components, such as transmissions, are of a safety concern. Failure of these components will have different effects based on the driving situation encountered during failure. I was fortunate not to be on a steep mountain grade or in rush hour traffic. The random failure of vehicle parts is unavoidable due to differing reasons, however, this transmission made since 2001 has been failing in most 2001 Fords. On the date of this complaint, I have had the transmission rebuild and have been advised there were more issues than simply 2nd gear. $3,000. 00 worth. I am retaining all of the failed parts for evidence. 76471 miles on the truck.

2003 F-250 sd 4x4 cc 5. 4 l gas auto transmission. When the truck is started it lurches forward. This has been happening for over a year now. Fords response is that this is normal. That is unacceptable. I have never had this happen with any other vehicle. This problem happens even though it is an automatic and is in park. It happens in both cold weather as well as warm.

First, I love my truck, but if I didn't have an extended warranty, it be down the road. Items either repaired or replaced all before 47k miles (now has 49k miles as of 10/2005) with all work being done at my local Ford dealership: automatic transmission was replaced once, and again required repair for broken pump. Rear end completely replaced. Auto front locking hubs replaced twice. Rear driveline was replaced. Air box broken and replaced. "super duty diesel" implies a really tough truck, but I baby mine - is that what I'm done wrong?.

Our 2003 Ford f250 diesel trucks transmission needs to be replaced after only 55,000 miles. We paid $40,000 for a truck that was supposed to be built to last and be a quality vehicle. We were told by the dealership that it came with a 100,000 mile power train warranty. Now that we are having problems with it, we are being told that a transmission is not considered power train on a diesel engine. This truck is almost new. We have only pulled a stock trailer with it a hand full of times. It is mostly used on the highway as our family vehicle. Ford is not standing beside it's vehicle. They want us to pay $3500. 00 to replace a part that should not have failed. My husband has talked to the Ford company directly who does not even have a record of us buying the truck. Why should they be able to manufacture garbage,change outrageous prices for it and then not take responsibility for it????is there anything we can do?.

Consumer states: they were traveling transmission went out. Took vehicle to the dealer, rebuilt transmission and got back on the road. Driving less than 1000 miles and the transmission went out again. Before being rebuilt the vehicle wouldn't shift into overdrive, and then after being rebuilt shifted hard and then everything went out. A new transmission was installed and now the vehicle runs properly.

Failure Date: 02/26/2005

Towing an empty horse trailer, when I started to experience the vehicle struggling to pull it. When I got home and was backing the trailer up, the drive went out on the vehicle, I was left with only reverse and drive 1. Now the dealership says they cannot find anything wrong with the transmission and it's going to cost around $900. 00 dollars for them to tear it apart and take a look. I do have extended warranty insurance, but they will not cover the cost of the tear down unless they do find something wrong, and looking at some of the other problems associated with the transmission I cannot afford to have them tear it down, find nothing wrong and put it back together again several times before they do find what's malfunctioned.
