I have to stop and put it in park and then back in drive. I live in Oakville, Ontario, canada currently 5000kms owned this truck 11 weeks now and has been at dealer ship total of 3 weeks. It is obvious that such thing must be repaired immediately. Thought it was just a problem with my truck but now that all this with Toyota is coming out I thought I should report this. Now have 117,000 miles, While having the oil changed a year ago mechanic noticed transmission was leaking fluid. I will keep everyone posted. I also get the shuddering on the highway as well.
Once you are in three times, I would certainly look into a lemon law attorney. There is a reference in the Vehicle Owner Guide, under Driving and Automatic Transmission. Anyone else in Alaska or Oregon having the same issue? When driving at approximately 35-40 mph and once the overdrive has kicked in, if you easily press the accelerator the transmission will shudder and act like it is trying to downshift. They wanted to install recorder that I would press if issue occurs. I was told there was a problem with the throttle cable. Always had a clunk when taking off and stopping, never better than 15. The service guys also told me that they are not allowed to give me that info, too.

When they're all caught up with customer work, the manager will typically keep them busy cleaning the shop or repairing equipment. Start with the radiator and a transmission flush. . I was told the dealer had a software upgrade that would take care of the issue; it did not. Always verify the customer concern. I have had Dodge trucks for 40 years and never had that issue.
I apply the brakes, and squeeze the shift lever, but it is stuck. Not so happy with the Ford choice of a retirement traveling vehicle now. Still did not fix the problem. I have a 2010 F-150 xlt that does this shit!!! Nov 23, 2012 I have that exact same truck and transmission and My Transmission did the exact same thing about a year ago and there was some kind of snap ring inside the transmission that broke. It literally scares passengers in my truck.
Something must be done by Ford. Last time the dealer decided to change fluid and filter. I took it to the dealer last week and they said it needed a computer software update. If you are above 45mph that is given time and deceleration to not go back to speed where third gear would be allowed to operate. The truck has been setting for 2 years. Then I started noticing a thump as the transmission changed gears. You'd want them to keep the same concentration on your truck too so they don't overlook an important detail.

Our trailer does not overload the truck, it is designed for half tons. I am really concerned now that I am reading all of these related issues and I think mine may be one of these lemons. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I called corporate and they are feeding me the same story. I was told initially that ford was aware of the problem and was working on a solution in November. It was driving ok minus the hard shifting until I hit 28,000 miles then the transmission sprung a big leak.
Dealers say that I was the only one with major issue. Now I have 200,000 miles on my truck and I have to replace the transmission again. There is a loud clicking nois efrom in the dash when i turn on the heating system at start up. I have had 6 transmissions installed and working on number 7. Not 1 of the issues has been rectified!!!! I think we can help. I am experiencing the above listed trans problems as well as the shuddering rear differential on slow moving turns. Sadly, I owe to much on the stupid thing to get rid of it too.
Both incidents happened with the vehicle in drive and moving forward at a very moderate rate in a parking lot. Many vehicles have under 100,000 miles.
