Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
we did as you said and got the oil changed without any problems.
it took 12 qts Mercon V 1 filter and 1 gasket but the vehicle is still doing the same thing. we don't know what to do next. thanks so much for your help my husband now knows that he can change the oil !! although he was afraid to do so....he said its a piece of cake. We will definately be using your services again.
I checked but did not find anything relevant.
You stated that you husband put 12 quarts in the transmission,that seems like a lot,as these transmission only hold 12.7 quarts when filled from completely dry and most of that is pumped into the torque convertor and cannot be drained out. Did your husband have the vehicle level or was the front end up on stands and the rear on the ground?
he said that he put some in with the front slightly tilted up but then decided to level her and that the dealer told him that she takes 15.7 qts thats why we bought 12qts. he did say that some drained back out.
he was also if the humming sound could be the wheel bearing ????
Thanks so much for your help, will definately keep you updated with what we find....maybe we can help someone else.
Ok,that sounds good.
Yes it is possible it could be a wheel bearing,but wheel brgs typically make more of a rumbling or grinding noise and change with speed.I would suggest you have it scanned for codes to see if there are any slipping clutch codes or sticking solenoids.
Just made an appointment with the dealer to have vehicle scanned on Monday. Please pray for me i KNOW IT'S GOING TO COST MY 2 LEGS AND AN ARM !!
i WILL BE IN TOUCH.
Okay.I will be here.
Hope it is nothing to serious.
I left the car at the Ford dealer yesterday from 8:30am until 6:00pm and was told that they had not found anything as yet because they were not finished with testing ?? one guy did say that they think my wheel bearings need replacing and that they would have to check to see if they had them in stock. as Monday's is my day off work they have agreed that I bring it back next Monday...... meanwhile I will get the bearings and have my husband put them in....... I will keep you updated.
