Ford: Have a 2006 Ford Explorer XLT v6...the transmission appears

This answer was rated:

Have a 2006 Ford Explorer XLT v6...the transmission appears to have a stutter when it shifts from 3rd to 4th and when it shifts from 4th to 5th/OD. It does not do it all the time and seems to appear more when driving on the highway. (i.e.when looking to accelerate faster.) Is this a torque converter issue or the signs of a more major issue?

Steve :

Welcome and thanks for your question. My name isXXXXX will do whatever I can to answer your questions!

Steve :

The most common problem for this concern is


may have overdrive band or intermediate band failures due to servo pin case bore wear causing reduced apply pressure.

Steve :

Unfortunately to repair this is going to require some major work on your trans. You will need to remove your trans and preform some modifications to the trans it does not happen again and require an overhaul or rebuild and the overdrive band or intermediate band have excessive wear or burned/damaged band friction material, the cause excessive servo pin case bore wear.

Customer:

does this require a trans rebuild to fix?

Customer:

the trans does have over 230k on it

Steve :

Unfortunately it is going to require a overhaul or replacement.

Steve :

do you have any other questions on your concern?

Customer:

not at this time...thank you
