Tranny Slipage 2012 Transit Connect

Recommended Posts

My son recently told me that his 2012 Transit Connect transmission was slipping.  He changed the fluid and it helped but did not solve the issue.  Question:  Not being an mechanic, who would you take the vehicle to for service, Ford or other.

Better Business Bureau.

Ford will be best, and cost the most.

Aftermarket shops will save you money ... but check them out with the BBB before committing.

 

If you have an AAMCO near you ... they've done well for me in the past.

Thanks Mike, I appreciate your thoughts and recommendation.    The problem seems to be in third.  When he is going uphill and the van needs to downshift into second, it tends to slam in.  I know that there are transmission mechanics on this forum and was hoping also to get a better understanding of the level of repair needed and possible costs. At this point i'm thinking of using Ford.  He is needing to get back on the road from Missouri to Oregon soon.  Hopefully we can get this taken care of properly.  Other than that the TC is great, no problems other than normal maintenance.  Thanks again.
