    I am new to this forum so I may be commiting a significant social error. If so please forgive me...however, I have a 2006 F-150, 5.4L engine, 3.54 axle, supercab with trailer towing package. A few weeks ago while slowly accelerating up a hill I noticed the transmission trying to downshift out of overdrive in an almost stuttering fashion. Almost like it couldn't decide if it should shift or not. It had done this several times but only at the times where there is a slow acceleration. On normal acceleration onto highways it appears to shift fine and only acts weird around the 45 mph range. I notice your shop is in north Georgia and I would like to stop by and see if you can diagnose the problem. Can this be done? Where is your shop located? Thanks for the help.

    Good morning, jk080, need your thoughts on a problem with engine knock. Sent this to pawpaw:

    Hello, pawpaw, long time no see. Trucks been doing OK until I replaced the engine. Would appreciate it if you would visit this link and provide your thoughts.


    I'm stumped and if I wish to try a different motor, I only have 4 weeks left on the warranty.

    Definitely isn't spark knock and lifters are all new. Hmmm. Thoughts?

    hi jk080 im a new user i have explorer but my question is in reference to an old post on an 2006 focus. You posted the diagram of the vavle body and solenoids. My focus shudders and shuts off while i brake. i was told the convertor is locking up. I drop the pan the fliud was low but good color not burnt no metal or debris in the pan. i added fluid and no change. i was told this tranny dosent have tcc lock up solenoid, but one or more of the solenoid in that diagram should control that. and if not do you think i need a new converter on2006 focus with 90k by the way the code is a p0741

    Hey JK I haven't been around for a while. Been out making some more money to throw at my truck. It isn't back together because I saw it needed more attention than I was able to give it. I want to thank you for your help, and will probably have a couple of more questions for you in the near future. I did do a couple of good fixes as I dove back under it this past weekend check it out here. http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/12...l#post13418637

    You appear to be the person in the know when it comes to transmissions and it's probably wrong of me to ask if you wouldn't mind having a look at my "post".
    2005 F150 4.6 auto transmission after rebuild
    I've expressed myself politely to the transmission repair shop and after the second time the glassed over. Each time (almost daily) when I'm at my regular service shop I bitch about there being something wrong with my F150 they are listening but are at a loss due to the lack of any trouble codes. Not everything has a sensor and I'm not about to stand back and through parts at it. Right now I'm thinking Edge 15051 Evolution programer. Would you have an idea? Thanks Robert in London Canada

    Thank you so much for sharing your insight, this "weak reverse" issue was driving me nuts... Do you know that feeling when you're driving your truck and you know something isn't right, and you just can't take it out of your head?.

    Where in North GA you at? I might throw you some business your way. My OD is not working on my 03 Expedition Eddie Bauer. Everything else works fine

    First off let me say that I have read several of your posts and though you would be the person that could help me with a problem I'm having with a 06 fx4 5.4 litre I just bought. When i test drove it it ran great but today I noticed it seemed to be shifting funny from 2-3 and 3-4 on light acceleration, like it was going into neutral. Well since the person I purchased it from said it had a transmission warranty on it I took it to the local dealer to find out this has been an on going problem to the extent that its had 3 new transmissions installed,they even removed the trans. from my truck and installed it into another truck where it performed perfectly,all the pressures checked out with no codes. They suggest trying a new PCM, so I'm trying to do some research before I spend another grand on it. I should also add that when you turn off the OD it shifts out fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
