2004 F150 Transmission problem

I have an '04 FX4 and my transmission would shudder when down shifting... and now it simply will not shift into 3rd gear... I start off fine in drive then once i hit 3rd the truck winds up as if in neutral... For the time being I have been driving only using manual 1st & 2nd gear.

What could be my problem?

is it still under warranty? if so let them deal with it. the transmission is toast . the clutches are worn out or any number of things.

Happened with my 2004 F-150, it would shuder and "thump" really hard when downshifting. Ford said "There is no fix out for this problem yet, but we will inform you when we get one.." Some bull**** like that, Get them to put a whole new tranny in it. They offered me a new tranny but I declined and traded it in for a 2006 F-250 the next week.

The problem is in your head. You are making it up. These Fords dont have any problems, they came out of the factory perfect. My Ford hasnt had that problem, its the coolast!!111!!!!!11!!


Joking with ya, hope you get it fixed without hassle. Good luck.
