The yellow wrench is...

The yellow wrench is on and it's not shifting right - 2008 Mariner.

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

Original to car and no.

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

I am not fixing it myself. I am taking it to have transmission fluid changed today.

Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

Does it feel like it is missing second and fourth gears, revs out higher than normal in first then shifts to third?

I can't tell. It does take a long time to shift from 1st and that's when the power train light comes on.

Ok thanks, ***** ***** by a broken 2/4 band. Very common with this transmission. Repair requires transmission removal and disassembly to replace the band. Sorry for the bad news :(

If you can provide the VIN# ***** current mileage, I can check for open recalls for this concern on Ford's database.

Thanks. About how much should that cost me at AAMCO.

Around $1500 for just the band replacement, if you can get them to not sell you a full rebuild or replacement.

Should really check for recalls.
