This is a manual transmission, correct?

You are doing a 5-3 shift to slow down or accelerate?

If slowing down, are you too aggressive on the clutch release?

Its not jerking, it's a squawk.

You need to have the truck inspected at a trans shop or Ford.

Try to avoid the 5-3 for now.

5k miles only problem is im from overseas
Ford Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

Yes, I see you are from the Phillipines.

And you have no Ford dealers over there?

That does make it difficult.

I don't think I can help you further.

I will opt out now, perhaps another tech can help you.

I wish you well.

Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question. You may receive a request from the website for a phone call. I am not currently set up for phone calls at this time.

This squawk/harshness is caused by the overdrive clutch friction discs. Usually adding two bottles of Motorcraft® 6R ATF Additive XL-16 takes care of it, but not always. We have had to replace the discs on a few of them to cure it. This requires removal and disassembly of the transmission. You need to allow several hundred miles of driving after adding the additive to see if it worked or not.

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 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.

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
