  1. Hi everyone, I have 2014 Transit Connect XL 2.5L that I bought used with 45K miles on it. I have never taken it to the dealer for repairs cause it has rebuilt title . Now that it has 96K miles on it and I finally got ahold of forscan I would like to see if I can Update my PCM/TCM calibrations to the newest version? I have a hard shifting 3 to 4 gears (6f35 tranny) since I bought it and my goal is to try to get rid of it and maybe upgrading calibrations will help?! Please help thanks in advance
  2. Vehicles Affected: Nearly 370 model-year 2014 Ford Transit Connect vans manufactured between March 1, 2014, and May 15, 2014 The Problem: The affected vehicles may have a brake reservoir cap that does not have the required text advising owners which brake fluid the vehicle uses. This could result in someone adding the wrong brake fluid, causing damage to the brake system seals and, in turn, brake fluid leaks; this could lengthen stopping distances and increase the risk of a crash. The Fix: Ford notified owners on July 14, and dealers will replace the brake reservoir cap with the correct one for free. What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Ford at 800-392-3673, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.

    On the way!

    Hi all! Been stalking for a bit and last night I took the leap! 2015 FTC LWB that I bought and is being sent from Reno Nevada to Tacoma Washington! It will be a slow transformation but I am excited to get started. I do a lot of hiking and backpacking and sometimes sleep in my Kia Rondo, so this will be luxury to me! More to come.... and thanks to all who share!

  5. Glasspacks on my 51 Ford Coupe flathead 8 sounded wonderful. My 55 Chevy V8 sounded great. My 57 Chevy 283 sounded awesome. Even my Olds Cutless 6 sounded good with a deep rumble. Now I'm wondering if my 2012 Connect 4 banger could possibly have a rich deep muffler sound? I'm wondering what talented muffler guy has figured that one out yet, or, am I doomed to the rice burner bumble bee sound?
  6. does anyone know if there rear seats the transit connect wagon are removable or retractable? if so... -- do rear seats "disappear" into the floor, or do they fold against the side walls?-- what is the width between the walls, above the rear wheel wells?-- what is the depth of the cargo area, from the inside of the back door to the top of the 2nd row of seats, while seats are still in the upright position?-- are interior cargo dimensions different between older version (ie.: 2010) and the better looking "facelifted" version (ie.: 2017)?-- is there an option for windowless back doors? maybe hatchback? -- is it possible for manufacturer to replace window glass with panels in the rear and side-rear of the vehicle, the way they normally do when converting passenger vans to cargo vans, after import to the US?and while we're at it, my actual preference is the transit custom, which is only sold as close as mexico. is it possible to get one in the US?
  7. does anyone know if there is a "crew" version (2nd row of seats and windows behind driver, with cargo area and windowless panels behind that) of the transit connect? if so...-- what is the width between the walls, above the rear wheel wells?-- what is the depth of the cargo area, from the inside of the back door to the top of the 2nd row of seats, while seats are still in the upright position?-- are interior cargo dimensions different between older version (ie.: 2010) and the better looking "facelifted" version (ie.: 2017)?-- what is the interior like in the 2nd row passenger area? seats comfortable or purely for utility? insulated for sound, or just bare metal?-- is there an option for windowless back doors? maybe hatchback?and while we're at it, my actual preference is the transit custom, which is only sold as close as mexico. is it possible to get one in the US?

  9. The reason I'm here once again, is because I'm always searching for new things & new products. In this instance, I've been speaking with FlowMaster Mufflers (the only one that was willing to speak with me) Here's what we've been talking about. Upon the purchase of the van, I wasn't pleased with the bad forward tilted & too low resonator. Flowmaster thinks they can help with this by swapping one of their oval mufflers. It's unclear which model muffler they're referring to. However, if this interested you as much as it does me.. Send your comments and support toBrandon ( brandon.janssen@dpbrands.com ) via Flowmaster in an effort to get this muffler tested or even installed on your TC. GL Update: July 20th 6:00 AM EST Just got another email from Brandon via Flowmaster, he feels that the Super HP2 (shorty) can be used as a replacement resonator & their DBX used as the muffler for the 2014 - Current Transit Connect. However, I sent him this pic, showing how the TC's exhaust system is set up. Not sure he's aware of how the muffler is resting sideways under the van.. Question: Is this something you'd be willing to try on your TC?.. comment below. The search for a performance muffler continues...
  10. We still have these factory wheels and tires and I've contacted several bloggers & UTZ potato chips in an effort to get what ever I can for these wheels. Bloggers like Tiny Van Travels and Tessa Mendez But just so happen Iw as at the store the other morning where I spotted a Ford Transit Connect UTZ delivery van.. I sent word to UTZ in an effort to see if they needed these factory wheels/tires. The UTZ rep was very helpful and sent word to their maintenance department. As of yet I've not heard back from any of these possible candidates. So here's what I'm willing to do. If you live near MD/PA/VA/DE/WV We're willing to sell these at $400.00 or if you have a blog site which document your North American travels, we'll sell them to you at a reduced price of just $275.00 just as long as you connect with on one (or more) of our travel community/pages and meet us on the road for the exchange. Our next exchange could take place as soon as this weekend, we might be looking at a short trip to North Carolina. The only other exchange would take place the 1st or 2nd week in Sept at or near the MD/PA line. To schedule an exchange, connect with one of our travel profiles and of course forward your blog site for verification.
  11. Although I'm a bit late on this topic, I wanted to share a few things we've done to the van. Currently most of the things we've done to the van are mere personalizations and nothing more. Later a few more heavier or more involved additions could be added soon. Most of you are aware that we've added the 16x7 Sparco wheels w/ 215/55/16 Maxxis Tires: Next, we've added the K&N Air Filter with it's Larger Warning label. Then, I was given a small sample of red reflective vinyl and for months I thought about what would be the best way to use this on or in the van. Rather proud of this, Created a recovery hook marking location, seeing how we'll be purchasing the Ford Escape Recovery Hook via Amazon.com and We'll have the hook forwarded to Bone Head Performance, PA for them to filter the hook into "red" powder coating. I would offer to make a couple more of these marking triangles for you, but I'm running low on the reflective vinyl and have one more area to fulfill. Added these on a whim, but I should have thought more carefully about where these reflective squares should have been added. Perhaps I should have added them on the lift gates inner lip (inside when the gate is up) this could have been seen from a few blocks away if the lift gate was open. I'll have to see if I have more of the reflective vinyl left to make those additions. Lastly, and I've yet to get an image of this because I've not had a chance to lay on the ground to place the reflective triangles at each molded jack point located on both sides of the van's rocker panels. if you've never noticed these before might be a good idea to mark them somehow as to know it's location in times of an emergency. Not only am I marking these jack location for my benefit, but for my wife's benefit. Just good to know there are quick points to jack the van if needed. Small things can make a big difference.. Post your images of things you've done to your Connect.
  12. Soon after the purchase of the 2015 transit Connect we opted to remove the factory scissor jack and replace it with a 2 ton floor jack. Removing the factory jack from the rear (driver side) cubbyhole.. it's never been used but don't include the factory tire iron, seeing how the tire iron has a fitted key as to lower the spare tire. I'm not sure if an allen or torque set/socket would fit in this location. Otherwise, make an offer on this scissor jack w/o the tire iron, unless I can locate the correct sized allen / torque set.

  13. Welp gentleman, it's been 1 year & 21,000 miles alter and we still love the van, But as many of you know, I'm still not pleased with the tire size selection and I'll just have to deal with it until this can be corrected in about 45K miles. The van has seen a few small/short trip here and there. it's been kept on a routine service scheduled but we've switched from one dealership to another. Reason for the switch, was that I hasn't please with the mechanic they kept assigning the van to and each time, the mechanic never added the correct level of oil, leaving it was short of the crosshatching on the dip stick. The van is still way more comfortable than I would have ever imagined and handles perfectly.

    Ford Gets Back in the Minivan Game

    Ford Gets Back in the Minivan Game Phil LeBeau / CNBC 2014 Ford Transit Connect Let’s get something straight. As much as Ford Motor may not want to admit it, the new Transit Connect Wagon is basically a minivan. Whether you call it a wagon, minivan or people mover (yes, Ford has used that term), what matters is whether the Transit Connect Wagon actually connects with buyers. It is not like the typical minivan, which could open it up to a wider variety of potential customers beyond the traditional minivan buyers — families in suburban America.' READ MORE HERE
  15. My work recently purchased a second hand 2011 Transit Connect (Gas-Powered US Model) with approximately 70K miles. It has blown the transmission after something like 6 months and < 10k miles traveled (the Ford tech pulled the transmission oil pan and it was filled with metal shavings). I would like to purchase a replacement transmission and potentially install it myself. I have the following questions: There are seperate parts listings for "From 1/17/11" and "Thru 1/16/11" - what is the difference? According to what I've read the transmission should be this transmission - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_4F27E_transmission Is there a model year difference? In that same train of thought, it seems that the Ford Focus 03-11 uses the same transmission, are they completely interchangeable? The powertrains seem to be vastly similar. Finally, is there anything I can do to extend the transmission life on this vehicle? It seems as if the engine/transmission were designed for fairly low loads and light usage, but we're using it as a work van to carry tools/ladders (nothing super-heavy, but non-trivial amount of weight and drag from roof-rack ladders). I briefly considered a manual transmission swap, but would a transmission cooler help? Thanks in advance.
  16. Hello All, I am a Fleet Manager at Villa Ford located in Orange Ca. It has come to my attention that it has been very difficult to locate CNG transit connects. At this time I have several (35+) units of 2012 dedicated cng transit connects on my lot that are ready for purchase. I just recentley sold a T/C to a gentelman that flew out here from San Jose to purchase one from me because he couldn't find any local dealers that could/would help him. He was very pleased with his new CNG T/C. It was he that told me about these different forums and thought it would be good to let people know that I have so many units ready for purchase. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you. D

  20. Ford Introduces New Seven-Passenger People Mover with a Difference: Transit Connect Wagon First to Exceed 30 MPG Ford brings the compact Transit Connect Wagon to market, a vehicle so unique it is a revolution in seven-passenger transportation Transit Connect Wagon expected to deliver at least 5 mpg better fuel economy on the highway and 2 mpg better in the city than a seven-seat Toyota Sienna minivan, and more cargo space and passenger seating than Mazda5, yet hauls a heavier payload than a Toyota Tacoma Double Cab pickup or Dodge Grand Caravan Anticipating up to 30 mpg-plus on the highway with EcoBoost® power, Transit Connect Wagon offers a choice of two fuel-efficient four-cylinder engines, two wheelbase lengths and three series models – XL, XLT and range-topping Titanium Transit Connect Wagon takes adaptability to a new level with the convenience of sliding side doors, fold-flat second- and third-row seating, a 1,200-pound-plus payload, and choice of a rear liftgate or symmetrical, side-hinged cargo doors SOUNDBITES: 2014 Transit Connect Wagon FORD TRANSIT CONNECT FORUM – Ford, the most fuel-efficient full-line manufacturer, introduces the first seven-passenger people mover expected to break the 30 mpg-plus highway barrier with the all-new Transit Connect Wagon, which drives like a car, has the flexibility of a utility and can haul the payload of a full-size pickup. “Transit Connect Wagon gives young families and people on the go the fun-to-drive and efficient vehicle they’ve been looking for,” said Mark Fields, Ford’s President of The Americas. “It’s an all-new, smaller seven-seater that has better mileage than larger vans and creates a segment of its own. Customers also will love the unique combination of style, adaptability and affordability this wagon brings.” Transit Connect Wagon is offered in two wheelbase lengths, in five- and seven-passenger configurations, and in XL, XLT and Titanium series levels. No other wagon in the market today offers the convenience of fold-flat seating, at least a 1,200-pound payload and more than 100 cubic feet of cargo space. When properly equipped, this versatile wagon is approved to tow up to 2,000 pounds, 500 pounds more than a four-cylinder Toyota Highlander SUV. Have it your way Transit Connect Wagon offers customers a choice between two fuel-efficient four-cylinder engines – a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an optional 1.6-liter EcoBoost® that is estimated to deliver 30 mpg-plus on the highway. This powertrain makes Transit Connect Wagon the gas mileage leader among seven-passenger vehicles. Both engines come mated to a convenient six-speed automatic transmission, geared for around-town responsiveness and low-rpm highway cruising. Transit Connect Wagon is available in a wide variety of configurations and series levels, offering unexpected features in a high-value package with low operating costs.

Transit Connect Wagon’s global design includes premium cues throughout such as available full body-color exterior accents with jewel-like chrome trim and high-gloss interior trim pieces. A range of seating surfaces, from luxurious leather, comfortable cloth and heavy-duty vinyl, is available to suit the specific needs of a wide variety of potential customers. Commercial-strength DNA in a family versatility vehicle Transit Connect Wagon’s work-hard/play-hard nature is reflected in cargo-carrying capacity and room for up to seven comfortably seated passengers, wrapped in a high-strength body engineered to rigorous global commercial vehicle durability standards. The all-new Transit Connect Wagon builds on the foundation of reliability and durability established by the current Transit Connect compact van. Introduced in North America in 2009, Transit Connect has become the must-have vehicle for small business proprietors, thanks to its unmatched combination of payload and cargo capacities, adaptability, fuel efficiency, maneuverability and overall ease of driving. Transit Connect was recognized as an innovative “white space” vehicle – literally carving out a new category in the market – by the automotive industry press corps when it was named North American Truck of the Year in January 2010 at the North American International Auto Show. Now selling at a pace of 35,000 units per year, Transit Connect has become a favorite of small businesses, corporate fleets, taxi operators and a few individualistic owners who find its combination of a car-like ride and the cargo capacity of a van just right for their personal use. “The all-new Transit Connect Wagon will expand the personal-use audience for this versatile nameplate by offering up to seven-passenger capacity across three rows of seating in a fully trimmed interior,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford vice president of Global Engineering, Global Product Development. “It has an extensive selection of comfort, convenience and connectivity options, and a full complement of safety features – making it a modern, family-friendly alternative to oversized minivans.” All Transit Connect Wagon models feature first-row frontal, pelvis and side airbags, with first-, second- and third-row side curtain airbags in long-wheelbase models. Short-wheelbase versions get first- and second-row side curtain airbags. Ford’s award-winning MyKey® programmable ignition key enables restricting maximum vehicle speed and audio system volume, bringing additional peace of mind to both parents and fleet administrators alike. Click to download PDF. Transit Connect Wagon even offers a child observation mirror so parents can keep track of children safely belted in second- and third-row seats. Infinite adaptability Inside, the Transit Connect Wagon package is a rolling showcase for adaptability in hauling both people and cargo. From its 60/40 three-passenger second-row bench seat through fold-flat second- and third-row seating with third-row independent fore-and-aft sliding capability, Transit Connect Wagon quickly adapts to accommodate multiple combinations of people and cargo. Also available is an electric windshield defroster, making short work of icy windshields in wintry conditions and when parking Transit Connect Wagon on the street. The versatile Transit Connect Wagon offers far better fuel efficiency than traditional minivans, compact-car-like maneuverability and handling, combined with unprecedented payload and cargo capabilities. Look for Transit Connect Wagon to appear in North American Ford dealerships in the fourth quarter of 2013.
