Hi, I have a 2007 Ford Edge FWD, 68000 miles. At 50K, I noticed hard shifting going from 1-2 gear. It was diagnosed as a faulty controller and replaced. Now it's happening again; I was told we need another controller ($1600+) to get rid of the problem. (A valve is sticking in the controller.) I am aware of the TSB on sensors and this apparently isn't part of the problem. I was also told that the car is safe to drive and this will NOT damage the transmission. Is this correct? Do I pony up the money and have the same problem in another 15K miles? Or do I drive it, hope it gets better, and ruin my transmission? THANKS!!! Also noteworthy: this problem immediately occurred the second time after replacing the battery. The techs tried reprogramming tranny, didn't help.

Seeing the original dealer twice, had the problem fixed once under warranty, now dealing with it out of warranty.

Hi Daniel, I'm Leslie. Thanks for your help. Need any additional info?
I have a tsb that deals with a recalibration
I believe this will help
I am bringing to yu now

There is a new calibration that will improve the low speed stop and go driving feel.ACTIONReprogram the PCM to the latest calibration using IDS release 57.14 and higher or 58.5 and higher.This new calibration is not included in the VCM 2008.9 DVD.

now dont listen to them if you have issue shifting it cvan cause clutch wear and damage
So get it checked out right away.
I was told the techs tried recalibrating and did a system upgrade, especially since the battery was just replaced. It isn't as violent when shifting, but still a noticeable jump. My main concern is will I harm it by not fixing the problem?
Yes it can harm it
make sure calibration was done right.
OK thanks. That was my next question; I am going to get a second opinion at another dealership for that reason. Is there any reason to expect Ford to pay for this since it was fixed once under warranty?
Yes if condition isnt fixed yet then they need to right it. if not call the 800 number for ford customer service they have to give it to you
thanks so much!
