As I mentioned yesterday, had second opinion on trans this morning. They test drive it, computer hooked up. And nothing found. They called original trans shop who did repair and had long conversation. Here what they said: ford told them to remove two clutch actuators to check inside for oil or debri.
PratoN, you should try this.
It's big enough opening to see SEAL damage; so the couldn't see anything wrong. They pulled starter out(just like I thought), couldn't find any. Last thing they did, split whole thing out. Found little (very small amount) of metal dust on the clutch. So they replaced it. At this point they been on the phone with ford for an hour and couldn't agree on anything. As of right now another appointment will be on Fri at the dealer for further investigation.
Guy at the shop feels like ford will do oil update/replacement. Will keep you guys posted.
Have a great Thanksgiving!!!
