Hi Gloomis23,

I know multiple service visits can be frustrating, but I'd like to see what I can do to help. Please send me a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name. I'll get your case escalated and ensure that your regional customer service manager reaches out to you soon.

Let me know if you have any other questions,
Crystal

Shorty Long this seems to be the pattern...
1. experience issue your described
2. take it to dealer and have them run tests...no error codes
3. post about your experience here and then hear from ford employee on this board who will ask for info about your car
4. a ford rep will contact you and then possibly follow up with your dealer
5. if they feel it's warranted, they'll offer to hook up a "black box" to your transmission to try and find the problem
6. the great unknown...no one has got past step 5 as far as i know

There is a definate problem here and I too have been unable to get my dealer to fix it. It has happened to me on two occasions.
