1999 Ford F-250 with transmission problems. Consumer had this problem repaired. She was then informed that there was a TSB that she never knew about. Ford is refusing to reimburse her for the repairs. The consumer stated the manufacturer was fully aware of the transmission problem, but failed to notify their customers. The problem was the fluid would overheat during severe duty and wear out the torque converter, which resulted in the radiator, cooler lines and hoses for the transmission to be replaced. The stabilizer bar link and battery were replaced.

Nothing has been done to my 2005 f250 superduty, under load it will not shift down automatically without depressing the foot feed. They have tried three times to correct this and know nothing. I am not going to keep it unless it is fixed. We were told Ford knows there is a problem with these trucks, but does not know the fix. What am I supposed to do on a $45,000. Vehicle?.

Automatic transmission started to slip out of gear while in drive. Would drive in 2nd gear only. While on a dealer test drive it lost reverse and was so bound up it couldn't be pushed in neutral. Needs new tranny $3,100. 00. Told that the sprag and torque converter are the weak links.
Shortly after my truck rolled over 106,000 it started making some very loud rattling sounds. After a few false starts with diagnosis, it was found that it had a bad torque converter and there is a TSB on the same subject dated 1999 (the same year as my truck) and the problem was recognized but not fixed at the factory, just told my mechanic to replace the part to the tune of $373 for the part and $275 labor. They said the replacement had a new design to keep the same problem from happening again. Why when in 1999 didn't they fix the problem to start with?.

Automatic transmission, torque-converter. I have a 2001 Ford F-250 super dudy pick-up truck, since 9 months after purchased I have had several problems regarding my transmission & drive shaft (already replaced it while under warrenty), with the transmission we had a problem down shifting, evey time we took it in they couldn't find the problem ( Ford dealer, they said theres nothing they can do), it has 90% of highway miles on it & 10% town miles. It is now 2004 it has 61000 miles & the torque-converter is sliping & shuttering, not alowing the fluid to pass through correctly & the transmission now has to be rebuilt, because Ford dealer said the couldn't find nothing wrong, so we took it for a second opinion & they found something, but while under warrenty the dealership could not !!!!!!! go figure, I guess thats how they make there money .
The module actavating the torque converter is engaging at idle, causing transmission to engage, and vehicle to surged forward without manually applying accelerator.

When driving 40 mph and above, letting off the accelerator pedal, the transmission goes in neutral. The torque converter locks and unlocks. This is a dangerous situation when towing a trailer.
