Ford Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 7 months ago

was there any debris in the pan when you changed the fluid and filter??

this transmission has many issues and was a real problem for ford. it had a high failure rate and was unreliable. they upgraded the unit late in the 90's/

most of the issues are internal such as clutch packs seizing and pistons failing.

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.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
