Do you have the check engine light on?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Just OD light

Does the OD light stay on solid or flash ?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
It stays on but pushing in the shifter turns it off/on

Ok. That means there are no transmssion codes present. If there was a problem with transmission electronics there will be a check engin elight on or o'd light will flash. The symptom you are experiencing is usually caused by a clogged transmission filter or low transmission fluid.

The transmission shop I need a new tranny or complete breakdown to find issues. They said transmission fluid burnt. I was assured this is a reputable company .
Did they find any metal shavings in the fluid?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
They did not mention it but I don’t know for sure. They said something was broken.
Sorry about the wait. If there was a component broken the service engine soon light will come on and it will not shift fine once warmed. If there is metal particles present along with burned fluid then there is a possibility of a worn transmission

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
