boombots My dealer did not have to replicate symptoms. Mine only did bad things after long drives (hrs) or miles of stop and go. They ran some diagnostics and timed the shifts and said it needed clutches just from that. Also took it apart and did the rear main seal too...

Dynamech Thanks for the advice guys. I'm now thinking this is probably more closely related to the TCM issue. I found the paperwork talking about warranty extension for the seals but I'm trying to locate the details for the emission defect warranty.

continuing my posts on the TCM thread...

aaaron & dynamech, if you can't get help from the dealer, try to seek out Meagan the Ford rep here. She has worked tirelessly to escalate more cases than I can remember.

I've attached the only items that show up for recalls when I log into my ford owner account but I also know that I've received other TSB's and notices by mail that I'll have to dig through my records and see if I can find tonight.

I think you may find relevant posts by doing a forum search for the word bogging and then see the thread names for what applies to transmission as a subject.

This happened to me when changing lanes at highway speeds and also doing left hand turns from a stop on warm days.

- Occasionally when merging onto the highway, the vehicle will go into neutral (simulates fully depressed clutch and full throttle). I have to let go of the pedal for a few seconds and back on to then accelerate normally
I get this when i hammer it to pass cars on the highway... Scares my wife when she hears the thing scream but we are not going faster...

evoamac So the dealership didn't want to do it. I called Ford Manufacture Customer Relation department, and they talked to the dealer, and they replaced my clutch asy, as well as cylinder asy. just got the car back, super smooth now. don't know how long it's gonna last though. Because on the receipt it didn't say anything about replace the input shaft seal. I don't know if it is include in the Asy kit.

Thanks for getting back to me. Please send me a private message with your VIN, updated mileage, best daytime phone, full name, and dealer name/location. I'll look into this further.

They kept the car today, I have no idea what they are going to do. Are they telling me the truth? The tranny jerks so bad, sometime it wouldn't shift right in the middle of a intersection, which is a serious safety issue now. I don't know what to do.
Have you heard back from your dealer since this post? Please let me know, along with your mileage. I want to look into some additional assistance.

Anyway, mention it to the girl, she said theyw il look at it. I wasn't expecting much but she called back saying they need to order parts in so I can come pick it up for now and they will call when they are in.

After hearing all the horror stories of people's dealerships here, it's nice to get some decent response from the one I go to (Metro Ford Calgary).

Anywho, I'll update here to see what rev I get.
Glad to hear things are going well. If you need me, I'll be here.
