Hi 1st thanks for your time ! I have a 2003 for explorer XLT , I took it to a repair shop for a check up of my transmission
. It wasn't knocking hard or losing trans oil ,but I needed to let it warm up before I drive it and it had a smell of burning oil ! It been in the repair shop for the last month ! They rebuilt the transmission ,but when the two times I went to pick it up it drove for a 1hour or two and had to be towed back to the shop ! It will drive for a few then either knock hard or start smoking then it will disengage and the truck wont move! They change the Torque converter , trans pump, several times after the rebuild! The last thing the tried was change the pump because the said some how the pump wasn't flush with the input shaft completely or gear and strips the teeth! The pump wasn't long enough for the gear and the oil is not circulating through the system! Right now there at a lost! Any suggestion what they can try ? I already asked them if they tried looking back at the valve body valves, servo bore's, flow control valve, clutch packs ! Getting ready to tow it to another shop ! Again any assistance will be appreciated !
JA: Have you ever replaced the gaskets? Maybe the hoses?
Customer: Don't think they have tried to change the hoses yet or the gaskets ! I guess that will be next thing to try !
JA: Are you fixing your Explorer yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No its at a Transmission repair shop ,which states this is their 1st problem in years with this issue!
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No that's it! Thanks !
