Everything worked fine no...

Everything worked fine no noise or slipping through the gears until a couple of days ago when the truck seemed to be locked up when pulling away from stops or backing up. Now I am being told the transmission is shot.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has this ever happened before?

113,000km plenty of fluid

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2017 FX2 f150. up until now no issues. I have had the truck since 66,000km

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I do not know how to do it myself. I did have my mechanic drive the truck for a couple of days because when this first happened this past Sunday I immediately took it to him. He could not find an issue with it until Wednesday when it finally stopped working altogether

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nothing I can think of

I have not heard back from him today, he had the truck towed to a Mr Transmission

ok, the reason I ask is if it is the torque converter that failed, it is an emission piece that has a 5 yr 50k warranty. you may get some help from warranty on this.

as far as needing a trans, yes. the converter circulates metal throughout the transmission contaminating the valve body and other components.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

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.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

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.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
