I changed out the coil for that plug and it solved the problem. The transmission started puking fluid during a hard run. The dealer stated that there was catastrophic transmission failure and the vehicle was defective. The transmission still shifts perfect and acts normal, but only when you start off on a big steep hill is when it does it, otherwise it's always normal. The current mileage was 3,200 and failure mileage was 3,100. The driver side door, which was open, struck him from behind and knocked him down. I have an appointment to take it in for service, but I am concerned about the risks of having a collision, damaging property, or hurting someone--including myself if I end up hitting something.
If it was mine I'd drop the pan and have a look. It was down to about 50% of the 650 original cranking amps. The current mileage is 1,540 and failure mileage was 1,536. I have an appointment to take it in for service, but I am concerned about the risks of having a collision, damaging property, or hurting someone--including myself if I end up hitting something. Before it would do it almost every time on a hill. I was able to pull out my left leg easily resulting in just a few cuts, scrapes and partial black and blue spots.
He also stated that the vehicle shifts out of gear and locks when placed in reverse. Replaced it with an 850 and trans runs like a champ. Each time I stepped on the brake with both feet to try to keep the vehicle from moving but it continued to lunge ahead anyway. The dealer was unable to determine the cause of failure. The boat trailer jacknifed to the right of the vehicle. Okay, maybe I jumped the gun. After hauling a boat out of water, the consumer stated he moved the electronic switch from 4L to 2hi, which would be the normal driving position applied the brake and shifted the console shifter to park.
The vehicle stalled while driving 20 mph. As soon as they were done the transmission has acted a little strange. This was the original battery and had lasted me over 6 years. I'll drop the pan in a few days and look. So far, when it has occurred, I was fortunate not to be in heavy traffic or tight quarters! I even had skid marks trying to stop it when this happened in reverse. I have 89000 miles on it now so I'm thinking about a complete tune up with all new coils, plugs and wires. I hope this can be remedied once and for all.
If it was mine I'd drop the pan and have a look. When I got home I asked a Ford mechanic and he said it was the coil. Looks like I'm gonna have to have someone run a diagnostics and check. Thanks for this discussion guys! I'm due for a service now. .
I had to go buy a new filter and change it in a parking lot. When the contact depressed the brake pedal, the vehicle shut off. Man, they're proud of that thing aren't they. It's too much of a coincidence that it started happening after the filter and fluid change. I have a 2007 Ford F-150, 5. However, the engine was still running. I used one before a trip.
After changing the battery, I was not able to duplicate the bumping in the trans that night. Okay, maybe I jumped the gun. This time it's intermittent and I can't get a code to show up. I had a coil go out before and it does the same thing. The contact believes the failure was due to the transmission. So far, when it has occurred, I was fortunate not to be in heavy traffic or tight quarters! I was caught by the door and dragged along until the door threw me to the ground, injuring my back. I don't know what's causing it though.
I was having the exact same symptoms when starting up a hill at low rpm. The truck came to rest on both of my legs. The consumer stated the mechanic informed him unless you move the vehicle forward until you hear a click then the vehicle will remain in neutral. The current mileage was 2,100 and failure mileage was 344. I bet that's what happened. He exited the vehicle and noticed that it was beginning to move.
Before it would do it almost every time on a hill. I will add that before the last trans service, I remember the shifting being hard and it went away. I once purchased some transmission filters for my 4R100 from a salvage sale. No it seem to do it only after gently applying accelerator on slight inclines. My truck only has 94k miles and I rarely pull anything but a small trailer. I took it into the dealer.
