Re: 2005 Mountaineer transmission hesitation
I did tell them. I even waited until it was doing it and went to the dealership and took a mechanic for a ride so that he could experience it. They told me the plugs and wires should be changed, along with a laundry list of other things that were mostly related to the scheduled maintenance stuff that they recommend at 60,000 miles, including an oil change. I do my own oil changes and had just done one a week or so before. I took it to a local mechanic and he really couldn't diagnose the problem. I had him change the plugs and wires and the fuel filter. I really think that dealers want to do all the non-warranty work first. I did buy the FORD extended warranty that still has 15,000 miles left. I can replace parts and at a much lower hourly rate.
