From a standstill 1st gear slipping. Performed ATF flush with 12 quarts Toyota T-IV ATF from CarQuest @$5.40/qt. Since car was doing same at 25k miles, FoMoCo factory ATF is a no-no. Now tranny is a very smo-o-o-oth opera-a-a-t-o-o-or :)
Had intermittent shuddering and sounds as if I had a flat tire. It usually happened when in stop and go traffic at 20MPH. These sounds would go away. The Ford Dealer was a joke and a waste of time. Fixed by local shop. Drivetrain replaced.
Whine developed over last few months. Dealer initially uspected axle bearing. Replaced and found not to be cause. Dealer then found TSB and replaced centre axle (AWD) and this cured it.
Blew transmission. Dealer advised it was first one in Canada. Took 1 week to diagnose - Ford authorized R&R of complete transmission. 2 weeks to ship transmission (nearest one in Memphis) and a few days to R&R. Lincoln warranty covered rental car.
Buzz sound from under car, noticeable at low speed, rear driveshaft for AWD replaced.
Rear drive shaft assembly replaced.
Low growling sound, apparently was a bearing in the driveshaft, replaced under warranty.
Known issue of Aisin transmission valve body sometimes failing after 20,000 miles. Issue and repair covered in a TSB. Problem was verified by the Tech, parts were ordered and car repaired under Warranty and returned the next day.
Power Take-Off Assembly (provides drive to rear wheels on AWD vehicle)
Car was 3 Qtr low on transmission fluid. Transmission unit is a sealed unit. We've never had the transmission serviced. Dealer is telling us we need a new transmission. Very disappointed considering miles. Feel lube was low out of facto

Driveshaft support bearing failure. Support bearing repair requires complete driveshat replacement. New updated driveshaft was installed.
