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?
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.
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.
That VIN is not valid, please re enter carefully. It should be 17 digits long
Sorry no open recalls. Was worth checking. Best of luck with the repairs!
