just replaced it a week ago06 ford explorer xlt 5r55s 2wheel dr
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 11 months ago

This transmission is known for concerns with all gears and shifts except 1st and 4th. There are 2 bands that are used. Overdrive band is engaged for 2nd and 5th. Intermediate band is used for 3rd gear. These bands are applied by a steel servos that moves in and out in the aluminum case to apply and release the bands. Since these bands get worked alot and often abused from not engaging and releasing in time. This results in the servo working a groove into the case causing the servo to stick closed or open or in the middle thus affecting the band tension and the shift and gear. Your issue is the overdrive band. An overhaul is needed so the bands can be replaced and the servo bores reamed out and bushing installed to fix and resolve this concern.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

i just put a remaned trans in it they said they did all the updates
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 11 months ago

I did read that you just replaced the transmission. I have no clue where you bought your trans, what there skills are or what they actually did to the transmission. Did you purchase this remanufactured transmission from Ford? Does it have a warranty? Have they tried to fix it? Are there codes stored?

There are no codes stored the only thing I did see is that the torque converter disengaged due to slippage aside from that the transmission was purchased from powertrain solutions it has a three-year warranty he has gone to forward their transmission person said he cannot figure out what's wrong with it unless he takes it out of the car and does a diagnosis that specific way and one and charge me $800
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 11 months ago

That is the problem when dealing with aftermarket companies. There warranty is just not in the consumers favor. Yes a Ford remanufactured transmission is more expensive but the warranty is superior. They will tow it and fix it for free parts and labor. Since there are no solenoid codes I am 100% sure the band or servo or servo bore is at fault. This is not the first time I have fixed this concern nor dealt with an aftermarket rebuild done poor. From 02-07 90% of my paychecks at the dealer were from the Ford explorer transmission and rear axle. I have 3 lifts and 3 flat stalls and would have SUVs stacked up and waiting for these repairs.

I am sorry you are in this situation.
