Customer Question
My transmission shudders and...

My transmission shudders and sometimes hesitates. Will Ford fix this problem at no cost?

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your transmission fluid last checked?

Recently. It was fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2013 Fiesta.

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

No. I don't work on cars. I took it to my Ford Dealer and they replaced a part, which did not fix the problem.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Yes, the Ford dealer will fix your vehicle as long as it is still under warranty. The repair will be no cost to you unless there is a deductible.

You now will see a rating scale a row of yellow stars from bad to excellent, because I have posted my 1st full/partial answer. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris
