Customer Question
My 2005 Ford F150's transmission...
My 2005 Ford F150's transmission has lost 2nd gear. It will go up to about 25 MPH and then it is like the transmission goes to neutral, the engine just revs up when it should shift, nothing is there. I can still drive in the low gears and reverse. This did not throw a code, is that normal? Guess it also means I need to rebuilt the transmission.

Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.

I will do my best to assist you

i would think your assumption is correct..

the problem seems to be the 2-4 band,,it is worn out or the servo seals have blown,

a common thing is the servo bore will wear on this transmission and will need to be re-sleeved.

sorry,but i do not see an easy fix for this one,the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced

thanks
