I recently bought an F150 3.7L, 6R80 transmission
. Sometimes when I start driving after stopping for a light or something the transmission doesn't want to shift. I shift it manually and it seems to clear up. It does not always give a trouble code, but one day I did get a 0720 code.
JA: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?
Customer: Sorry, the only light I mentioned was stopping for a traffic light, or stop sign and that is not the only time it does it, sometimes it does it after I have been parked outside a store, and start it to drive home.
JA: What year is your F150?
Customer: 2012, built 7/12 in Kansas City
JA: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Well, the Ford forum seemed to think it was a problem with the output speed sensor problem. I do not live near a Ford dealership, so I ordered a sensor online, #DY-1235-3L3Z-7M101-AA, giving them my VIN number to check if it was the right one. However when I took it to the local mechanic, he said it did not look anything like the one on my truck!
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I was going to ask about if I could add cruise control
to the truck, but I think I'd better concentrate on getting it to work right first!
