In addition, transmission is making a clanking noise. Also when tuck down shifts when going up hill it seems to hit a dead space in the transmission. I understand many others have had this issue. The vehicle was taken to the dealership four times, and they would like to fix the vehicle, but they contacted Ford. This is too major of a bump to not cause damage or problems later on. The dealership was going to tear the vehicle apart to see what was wrong with it because they test drove it as well and noticed the problem.
Vehicle has a non-serviceable transmission cooler. The problem started the night he purchased the vehicle. Talked to Ford dealer here and he said if the grinding noise happens again bring it in while it is happening so a mechanic can go for a ride. Vehicle has a non-serviceable transmission cooler.

The contact was driving 60 mph uphill when the engine became hesitant and the transmission would not downshift properly. On the way home transmission slipped and surged forward. Was told this is all normal by Ford reps. Please call for customer service and availability at 1-877-866-8372 ex. Old part will be made available.

Unexpected failure of transmission caused by, as dealer stated, a degradation of a bearing which came loose and became lodged in side of the transmission. Update: The transmission overdrive clip had broken when it started whining 2 years prior to the making of this video. He continued to contact the dealership and Ford.
Last Friday 8-05-05 they changed out the complete gear shift thinking that was the problem and have the same problem on that Saturday 8-06-05 and again 8-07-05,8-08-05 in which I returned to Ford. The vehicle was taken in last week, and they kept it for a week, and they stated they could not find anything wrong with it. The failure and current mileage was 83,189. The problem is it is very sporadic and probably won't happen when there is a mechanic in the truck. The vehicle was not repaired. You can put your foot on the brake all day long and try to push the button in to move the gear and nothing happens.
. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for inspection and the manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. No harsh weather conditions experienced. Especially noticeable in city traffic, whenever I slow down and then accelerate, there is a at least one or more bumps or jerks seeming to come from the transmission or drive train. I have been experiencing trouble with the truck not wanting to come out of park.
Have you ever heard of a car company giving away something unless there was a serious problem with this vehicle. This seems to be a very serious safety issue. Dealership and the manufacturer kept telling him to call the other. Truck was always dealership serviced and maintained as recommended. It felt like cruise control kicked in. I have done some research and have found over 6,000 cases of customers with same issue no towing, proper maintenance intervals and documentation, etc.
The contact test drove a 1999 model and drove it the same places where she experienced the problem, and that vehicle did not experience the same problem. The problem creates a rather loud noise and has greatly concerned me. This is a 2005 F-150 4. Also, would not disengage from 4hi, had to stop and start a few times to get it to disengage. I have been to the dealership 4 times in the past month trying to resolve the problem.
