I've got over 8200 miles on my EL, and no sign of leakage.

My guess is that the fitting was over torqued at the factory or a case that may have been misformed due to an air pocket in the molding process. I have also seen fittings cross-threaded causing the case to crack. I could keep going with possibilities, but I think you get the picture.

The end result of the leak was the transmission being replaced because they could not get a case


..Now this week I will drop the Expy off to have the bands and other parts replaced in the 2nd transmission because of a squealing sound @ 20- 30 Mph. Love the truck ,but you gotta wonder

berry1234 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
So you had a new tranny put in at 400 miles, and the replacement has to be replaced too? Wow, I wonder what a tranny costs.

Berry1234, I couldn't tell you what the transmission costs , but I am pretty sure that Ford did not make any money on my expy. I will say this ,I picked it up after the latest overhaul and it runs great , it shifts smoother then it ever did ,and does not hang up in a gear or slip . It runs like a 40K+ SUV should , I guess the question is; will it last .Which I hope it does . I would like 150K at least out of this expy before it starts breaking on a regular basis,however for that to happen it would needs to stop breaking now

Well here we go again ... 12000 +K later. Today the bands and clutches were replaced for the 2nd time ,however this time they changing a shaft. Ford would not provide the use of a loaner car nor would Ford pay for a rental so I had to rent one . The service manager did tell the shop to get the job done in one day which they did .Still love the truck but I quit wondering about the transmission reliability.I do not have any problem with the dealership or any of it's staff , every one there is as professional as the day is long

that sure is good customer service!! I had the same issue, my truck was in the shop probably for a total of 2-3 weeks getting fixed and ford refused to provide me a loaner car. Nothing beats paying 40K for a new truck and then dropping another 3 to 400 dollars on renting a piece of **** car to drive around. Especially when you are 6'6. Hell if I had wanted that I would have kept my lemon of an explorer. I do not plan on buying another Ford anytime soon. Two piece of **** vehicles in a row. Wife warned me on the second go, and now she refuses to let me look at another. we go my wife a land rover lr3 and it is a dream to drive. The quality is so far above what my expedition is. It is super quiet, rides smoother, has more off road capability, and even has more pickup and go (we opted for the V8). Next go round I will most likely be getting a truck and I cant stand how the new f150s look.
