Thumping in BA auto

Just wodering if anyone else is getting a thump in their BA auto when going from park to drive and when driving, usually when going up the gears. and not driving it hard either.

we were getting a thump when slowing down to an intersection and getting to 10-20 k an hour and then taking off again and we would here a small thump but now its got louder and more often.

Anybody no of this problem? I thought this auto was suposed to be smooth and quiet.

Re: Thumping in BA auto

This is a common problem, friend of mine managers a car rental firm they have had 3 out of 10 BA falcons with this problem. Will need to take car back to ford as it will be under warranty.

Re: Thumping in BA auto

i have/had the problem of the THUMP when going from park to reverse/drive. I dunno if this is the fix but I stopped it when I came to a stop (parking the car) i would lift the hand brake then put it into park..hasn't happened since...i do get another thump when accelerating or deaccelerating sometimes but i think mine is from the driveshaft...

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

Re: Thumping in BA auto

mmmm, interesting , thanks guys, so much for the new smoothe flash auto. My ef auto is more smoother, but a little more noisier...slower to to change gear... and...um..maybe i should shut up.

thanks guys as i should teach the mrs to drive a man. thats where im heading now, sick and tired of replacing trans. and man is quicker of the line and better fuel economy.

Cheers
