    Transmission swap

    I’ve got a 2013 Transit Connect that the transmission recently started acting up. It looks to need replacing so I’ve been looking for a transmission to put in it. I see that the Ford Focus has the same transmission so I was wondering if it’s a direct swap out. I can’t find much info online about it other than they share the same model number (4f27e). Is the gearing the same in them? If they are basically the same unit, will I have to tow it to a dealer to program something in the ECM? I have someone that can do the swap but he doesn’t have anyway to program anything into the computer if that’s required. I’ve seen on here people talking about putting a manual in the TC and while I would love that, I’m not looking for that involved of an install so I’m going to stick with an auto. Any insight to this would be greatly appreciated.
  2. I have a 2010 Ford Transit Connect XLT that came with a flower shop we bought last December. It has an automatic transmission, 2.0 gasoline engine and 112,000 miles on the car. The transmission fluid has never been changed. I called the dealer where it was purchased and he looked it up by VIN number and said I have the 150k miles transmission fluid in my model. I know a good deal about cars and personally I change my trans fluid every 60k miles, so I know it's a crap shoot to change this fluid at this mileage. The fluid is still red, not gritty and smells fine. Any advice on changing this fluid? I would do it myself with Ford fluid by taking off the trans line and letting the transmission pump out old fluid and then add new fluid in. That way there is no pressure on the system... i.e. not doing a power flush.

    Transmission failure

    Hi there! Recently, my car had transmission failure. It has less than 60000 but over the 5 year guarantee period by a month. My car was fixed by a 3rd party. I found out that Ford had issued earlier a technical service bulletin acknowledging that the 2010-2013 transit connect may exhibit an upshift flare or lack of 3rd and or 4th gear along with burnt automatic transmission fluid. They have a direct clutch repair kit available to address these concerns. I feel that Ford should have informed me of this issue so I can have it fixed before my guarantee was over. Also, the NTSA has recalled several 2013 models with the same transmission failure issue. Unfortunately, Transit Connect is not among them. Has anybody in this forum had the same problem with the transmission?

    Harsh Shift at Highway Speeds

    I am having a harsh shift from the transmission after driving for a short period of time at highway speeds and starting up an incline, the rpm's drop and the speeds drops, I will push on the gas feed to either speed up or to maintain speed and this is when the transmission down shifts, it is a hard thunk, and jerks a little, but there are times that the transmission down shift properly, nice and smooth.
  6. We replaced the original trans with an OEM trans. Is there a relearn process to complete? The trans is in "limp" mode, the speedo is not working and the code we're getting is PO720.
  7. 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.
