Harsh shifting Trans, missing Rev matches, and occasional hesitation. Also radio volume increasing with no driver input. Supposedly dealer performed PCM software update and reflash of My Ford touch software. Volume:fixed, Trans: not fixed
Various parts needed to be replaced inside transmission due to slippage in first three gears. Problem was aggravated by the cold weather.
Slips between 1st and 2nd gear, Left it at dealer for a few days and If the computer does not give error code or check engine light they cannot do anything about it. It is obvious that it slips and sounds different between 1st and 2nd gear.
when shifting from forward to reverse (or vice versa), clack or click sound from front wheels. Sounds similar to pads sliding around in caliper, but is NOT that. Found TSB 13-5-24 on blue oval forum. Needs thrust washers on half shafts.
There is a "squish, squish, squish" rhythmic noise coming from the drivers side, noticeable coasting at 10mph with the window down. Sounds like is coming from driver front wheel.
rhythmic noise from drivers side still there
Clicking noise from front left while turning. Dealer diagnosed as differential problem. Differential replaced, but problem returned within a day of picking up the car.
Clicking noise remained after differential replacement. Dealer found TSB for CV axle replacement. Driver side CV axle replaced.
Clicking noise when putting into drive. Replaced thrust washers in transmission. There was a TSB for this repair
would get stuck in 2nd gear. 2-3 shift hard.
Transmission valve malformed and popping when put into reverse.
Half shaft TSB
Replaced defective part
TSB performed for CV click with thrust washer. Took dealer "forever" to source parts on common repair.
Reported problem in April 2014 continued....When cold, car would jerk when shifting 4 to 5th...Vista Ford of Oxnard took tranny out and replaced a solenoid assembly...Was a Technical Service Bulletin......
Problem still present even after Fourth of July repair..Vista Ford of Oxnard rebuilt tranny, meaning replaced valve body and clutches and flushed cooler lines due to debris.....
Ice had gotten into the fuel filler neck and triggered check engine light. Dealer melted ice and cleared codes. No real way to prevent in future as this is a design flaw.
PCM needed to be replaced because it died.
Transmission is leaking. Dealer claims that it is just "seeping" and not dripping and thus there is "no problem". They consider the huge wet spot on the panel to be "normal". They ignored the Ford TSB about this issue.
Transmission seal seeping.
Clicking noise from front half-shafts - fixed as part of TSB for both left and right side
Transmission seal leak (eCVT) . Known issue for
some hybrids, repaired under warranty.
Vibration in drivetrain at 89 t0 80 km car is with ford Engineering had problem with this at 269 km when car has new been fighting for two years. need help. Update: replaced driveshaft with updated part.
same vibration in drivetrain and transmission slipping and banging, everthing but the engine was changed still have the samr problem.
same on going problem with transmission slipping and vibration in drivetrain. axle replaced, was making a noise
axle and steady bearing on going problem with this car, still have transmission vibration.
after another attempt, transmission slipping and big loud bang from drivetrain. happened on the highway. doesn't seem safe.
vibration in drivetrain. transmission, brakes, trans slipping and banging engine
Had transmission rebuilt again and driveshaft replaced again.
SUM: WHEN NEW, VEHICLE EXHIBITED HARSH SHIFTS FROM 1-2. GRADUALLY WORSENED AND CAME TO INCLUDE A SOFT 2-3 SHIFT AND A METALLIC FRICTION NOISE IN LOWER GEARS BY 1000MI. STARTING AROUND 7000MI, VEHICLE STARTED TO SHIFT ERRATICALLY IN TRAFFC
Harsh shift 1-2, slipping and flaring 2-3 and 3-4 despite application of TSB 12-3-7 Failure of valve body due to worn regulator valve bore. Total rebuild with replacement of all clutches, gaskets, and seals, including foward, reverse, overdrive clutches and final drive seal. Vehicle in shop for 21+ days.
Further work up for harsh 1-2 shift, now only when cold. Vehicle pressured tested and passed. PCM update applied. 50 percent improvement.
Continued harsh 1-2, flared 2-3, and other shift quality issues.
Transmission operation was very displeasing. Hard shifting, hunting for gear, gear hopping when stopped in gear, so on. Taken to dealer, supposedly the TCM was updated to the latest software (TSB). Issues continue, but to a much lower degree.
Odd shifting habits and other strange transmission behavior. Changed fluid again with a different type just prior to accident which took car out of my possession.
Front right axel
Firmware update to improve shift quality.
Transmission slipped between 2nd and 3rd. Software update.
Transmission slips in change from 2 to 3 when cold. Told this is normal by dealer.
Car made grinding noise when turning right. Replaced the driver's side CV axle myself (after watching YouTube video).
Replaced rear seal transmission
Black and burned transmission fluid requiring flushing
Transmission replaced but didn't solve problem: slipping while going uphill, hard shifting. New transmission removed twice, replaced valve body, solenoid, and PCM, still didn't solve problem. Hav refused offer to replace trans again, want buyback.
I finally agreed to allow Ford to install yet another transmission. This one at least appears to have resolved the issue.
The transmission slammed into reverse. I have had and apparently continue to have problems with my transmission.
I was getting some random, intermittent shift-slippage that would have led me to take the car in for service had I not traded it in.
Transmission started slipping upon heavy acceleration, took into Ford dealer who were not easy to deal with.... Next day they said they were replacing valve body - common failure among 6F35 transmission.
Car came back with a transmission whine upon running at full operating temperature. Transmission fluid level was also found too high, but that did not relate to the whine, car still has to go back.
Transmission is still acting up, hasn't been right since 1-2010, dealer cannot fix it.
Car is a lemon - faulty transmission since January 2010
Transmission was slipping severely and "whining". Car went in for transmission overhaul and after a week problems are just as bad again.
Transmission whining, very obvious and everyone BUT Ford dealer acknowledges it.
Transmission failing to shift on highway. Severe slipping and banging. Failure to reset to 1st gear at stops when coming off highway
Recall to recalibrate Throttle Body Sensor.
My 2010 Fusion was leaking transmission fluid, turns out the left axle seal was bad and they had to replace the whole unit.
hard shifting, re programmed software.
Overdrive piston in transmission problem - replaced under warranty along with ancillary parts. Basically a significant transmission service/rebuild. Problem was missing gears during acceleration.
codes p0753,p0219,slipping in 4th and 5th gear; remove transmission and overhaul unit; transmission fluid leaked allover my drive way returned to dealer for further repairs
transmission acting weird @below 5km/h in stop and go traffic when engine is hot.
Transmission hard shifting. Reflashed computer, and fixed shifting problem. However, it was leaking transmission fluid. Ended up replacing the half shaft (under warranty), as it was cracked.
TSB installed to correct transmission "flairing" when cold. TSB was successful.
Complete transmission replacement; covered under warranty.
Engine check light. Dealer said error was for transmission and firmware update fixed it.
Brought in with harsh shifting after adding 1.5 quarts of fluid. They couldn't find a leak and advised that the fluid was badly burnt. They also changed other fluids during this visit
Transmission leak found. Replaced drivers axle seal
Transmission lines were rusted and leaking in 2 location. New transmission lines installed.
Driver side bushing and seal replaced..Was leaking trans fluid....
Took car for oil change; shop noted tranny fluid leak and no fluid. Went to AAMCO; fluid gone, needed new gears,torque cvtr,axle,bushing and half case: $3100. Known problem:TSB-14-005. Vehicle 3 mo out of warranty. Ford: "Too bad for you."
Half Shaft Transmission Fluid Leak
Recently noticed a leak under the car and my RPMs jumping as I accelerate. Turns out my axle seal needs to be replaced and transmission fluid is leaking. According to the service mgr (and what I read on the internet), Ford is aware of it.
Transmission shifted hard on occasion. Car would fail to downshift gradually as I coasted to a stop, leaving me with no torque, then would slam down into gear.
Transmission fluid leaking; installed joint and stub shaft, replaced axle bushing and seal. In my view it seemed to be a factory defect and not a usual maintenance repair. Dealer did not want approach Ford for partial reimbursement.
Intermittent transmission problem. Jumps out of gear at high speeds (around 70 mph). Dealer not able to replicate. Third time in for repair.
Experienced hard shifting from 1-2 and 2-3. Shift flare from 3-4 at times. Reprogrammed PCM as per 3 TSBs. Repair seemed to help the issue, but not completely resolve it. Returned from ~1,000mi round trip. Hard shifts and shift flaring returned. Took to dealer, was notified that transmission would have to be replaced. Overdrive clutch and others burnt up. Fluid was black. Replacing torque converter & trans.
Transmission problems - clunking noise/feel when changing gears. Shop could not replicate nor did codes show anything wrong so nothing was done.
Transmission would clunk when slowing down and started shuddering when accelerating or decelerating. Dealer could find nothing wrong. It had this problem since 25,000 but became more and more frequent.
Took it in for harsh 2-3 shift and intermittent RPM flare between same shift. Was told could not duplicate.
Took back to dealer a few days later after voicing displeasure with last repair trip. They kept the car for 4 days and still told me they couldn't duplicate the problem. Less than pleased with Ford and this troublesome 6F35 transmission.
Replaced leaking axle seal as instructed by TSB
Right front axle seal leaking. Removed RF wheel. Disassembled front end, left lower ball joints intact. Removed axle. Removed and replaced seal. Reassembled front end. Replaced axle nut and torqued to spec. Topped up trans oil.
harsh shifting, trouble finding the right gear
Continued Harsh Shifting/Skipping, lack of power
Occasional "flare" (momentary increase in rpms as if missing a shift with a std. trans.). This didn't happen very often though.
transmission fluid leak was detected when I went in for an oil change. There is a TSB on this, leak on left side, and some parts were replaced.
The transmission was shifting from 3 to 4 harshly. The dealer reprogrammed the automatic transmission and that seems to have worked.
I lost almost all transmission fluid. The indication was a burnt smell in the car. Was able to take the car to the dealer. They change tubes running from the transmission to radiator and did flushing transmission for 800$. Transmission saved
Lemon car all the way around. Had been noticing problems with the transmission when first bought car and under warranty. 2,000mi out of warr and transmission blew. Ford would not honor their part. We paid...they don't care. Will never buy Ford again.
there is a steel shaft that transfers torque with fords AWD system. this part has now been replaced # times approx every 50000km
Coudy transmission fluid. Occassional harsh shift. Per Ford TSB internal transmission component changed and PCM reprogrammed. Car was driving OK when dropped off, but the transmission fluid was very dirty.
AWD car, half shaft joint went, had to replace shaft.
Light noise while car was in motion got much louder - carrier bearing on rear driveshaft had failed due to an imbalanced driveshaft (TSB issued but wasn't fixed by prev. owner). Repair was to replace entire driveshaft assembly.
Failed transfer case was causing loud grinding noise. Needed replacement.
Transmission abruptly downshifts at time. Dealer could not find anything wrong.
CV boots have been cracked for about 30k miles. Finally replaced them. They were NOT making any noise.
Passenger CV axle boot torn
Engine diagnostic indicated I needed to replace a sensor in the transmission; a Ford Tech said I should just flush the transmission fluid and replace the filter. Replaced the transmission fluid and filter.
Had recurring engine code P0772 shift solenoid E stuck on. Ford mechanic said transmission fluid flush usually solved problem; not so. I replaced the E solenoid, did another fluid flush and replaced transmission filter.
Upon starting the car, the gear shifter would not come out of park. This was accompanied by a strange combination of lights on the instrument cluster. Car would run, everything seemed to work, but it would not leave park. Email 2-8-2007: another trip where didn't fix transmission issue; two others where not actually written up, just disconnect and reconnect battery. See above See above
