Question 5sp no shift

03 f150 4.2 5spd 30k. Trans will not go into gear sometimes. Have to shut off the engine, put trans in gear then restart engine. Clutch seems fine, trans shifts through gears just fine while moving. Problem seems to evaporate while at Ford dealer of course. . Pilot bearing or slave cylinder? Anyone else have this problem?

Re: 5sp no shift

does this only happen when youre sitting still? sometimes the syncros will do that when not moving but when u let out the clutch a bit it will slip in. slave cylinder is the most common problem on those trucks, they leak.

No leaks detected. Resivour is full and have never had to add. Yes it only does it when sitting still, when you try to put it in gear it is just like the clutch is not there..but does not do it all the time. I suspect the pilot bushing/bearing/input shaft? It is back at the Ford dealer now for the third time.. almost out of warranty and need to get this solved before then...

Re: 5sp no shift

does it grind? those arent the smoothest shifting trannys out there thats for sure and everyone i've driven does that, sitting still at a light etc going from neutral to first is tough but with some pressure on it then letting out the clutch it goes in with no grind. going down the road they shift fine.

Try spinning the trans , push the clutch and "feel" the box into gear , they tend to be tight when sitting still.

Re: 5sp no shift

Hi

Can't help you on the mechanical side of things, but on the warranty side of things...

I had a situation where a dealer kept fobbing me off about a few problems which I wanted attended to while under warranty, and which were definitely covered by the warranty. So I paid for an RAC inspection which confirmed two problems which required fixing straight away that the dealer "couldn't diagnose". The third problem was one in the initial stages of development but which had not yet reached critical point where had to be fixed. I took the report to the dealer and said rectify these problems without delay or I'll take legal action against you for failing to honour your obligations under the warranty.

They fixed the first two problems. I had to fork out for the last problem a couple of years later when it became a major issue.

Moral of the story - maybe get an opinion from someone other than the dealer.

Regards
Julie
