|Tiger-Heli||Generally, the TSB means they fix it if it is still under warranty - but your car isn't.|

|DerbyCityGinger||Okay then no to solenoids. I went back a couple pages and saw there's a TSB on the transmission? Does that mean they will fix it like a recall? I bought it used about 4 years ago and it has 103,XXX miles on it, rebuilt at about 70-80k. The people who rebuilt the transmission welded the mount to the car...|

I disagree, have two at 180K and they still shift flawlessly. Haven't touched them at all other than fluid changes.
Many code readers won't pick up trans codes, need a dedicated reader to read them.
The 2-4 servo commonly breaks the piston to make issues like that and no solenoids on earth will fix that. Band could be cracked or worn as well to not fully apply tightly. Or direct clutch hub worn to leak pressure. All common issues on these.
Everybody always wants to change the solenoids, go on, change 'em all, many get no result at all there. There are literally 50 other things that could cause that.

About this solenoid fix.
My 2005 keeps slipping into third. Every time. It was rebuilt once when it was doing the problem in the very first post. Now third is not quite completely gone but it slips into it. I get the yellow O/D off light flashing, but every time a code is pulled I only have one code and it is not related (running lean).
Is this a solenoid problem? I know I'm not the only one who has had this exact same problem. This transmission is garbage.

|IfyAboutFords||I cant afford a mechanic but i do know how to replace solenoids. Is this a good course of action?|

|amc49||If you got only one gear you got more than just a sensor problem..........see a mech.|

I think my focus is stuck in 3rd gear. I can drive it like this but im scared itll burn up my transmission. It is an automatic. If its a sensor, which one do i need to get?

I cannot find any tsb online but it's a known fact that the 4F27E end cover wears funky to let either the direct drum or reverse or both leak at seal rings and they then tear up drums and clutch packs since not enough pressure to lock them up. I see bushing ride area and seal groove wear in the pics there.
Solenoids are the new pet buzz word used when anything happens with these trannies, actually they fail pretty rarely. Most are changed for no reason at all.
First gen cars use Mercon V not LV...................................

PS, the trans shop I visited the first time tried three different valve bodies and none of them (with new solenoids) fixed the issue. That doesn't account for the remanned one I tried before I brought them the car. It was an internal failure. Save the parts if you get a rebuild and post pictures. Always ask for the old parts before you pay.
LV is the fluid now recommended by Ford.
If anyone wants to try a remanned valve body I have one for sale on ebay for 125.00. Shoot me a pm. My new trans is working great and I dont need this remanned valve body anymore. I paid 330+.
