Customer Question
2001 Ford 4x4 F150...

2001 Ford 4x4 F150. At about 1500 rpm the transmission will surge, like it is trying to shift. With more rpm about 2000 it will stop surging

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?

Transmission was traded out about 40,000 miles ago. There are no leaks.

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

I had it to a good repair garage but they found nothing.

Hello, are there any warning lights on or codes stored? Is the transmission fluid level full and does it seem or smell burnt? At what speed does this happen, on take off or at a higher gear but lower rpm? The shop couldnt verify the problem?

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.

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.
