2006 Explorer V8 Transmission Lurches

I just purchased a 2006 Eddie Bauer Explorer with a 4.6L V8. The vehicle has just 18,000 miles on it but the transmission lurches unpredictably at slow speeds or when pulling away from a stop.

I have read many complaints on AutoBeef about the intermittent problem of the transmission lurching. Is there any known permanent fix?

Thanks, Steve

I had the same problem with my transmission. Dealer reflashed computer, don't know what that was all about, but the transmission problem went away. You may want to bring it to the dealers attention, should still be under warranty.

Well here we go again. The 6 speed transmission problems have returned. When I stop my Explorer for a light, stop sign, etc. the tranny will give a noticable clunk and then lurch forward just after stopping. I had the tranny reflashed and it was good for a short time, but the same problems are back. Anybody know of a fix that my dealer may be overlooking? Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Ya. I have the same problem in 2006 Explorer V8-6 SPEED TRANNY as do many many others.The updating Software gig at the Dealerships don't work.
Apparrently the real problem is the 'Friction Plates" in the Clutching System.
The layers on the Plates are too thin and don't grip especially upon acceleration.
This needs to be OUT THERE.AND FORD NEEDS TO FIX THIS.
Please start the Ball.

I did return again to my dealership.This time the tech used another TSB which he said was a later version. It has been almost two months now, and the tranny problem has not returned.
