Re: 2009 F-150 Auto Trans Shifting Problems
I took my '09 F-150 for the above described transmission problems. They hooked it to the computer to re-program, per Ford service bulletin and the computer crashed on my truck. Truck was in shop for 3 days until they could find a new one. Got the truck back and it shifts worse than before. When you take your foot off of the accelerator it starts down shifting. It does not coast like a normal transmission. On the interstate on level ground, it is constantly shifting back and forth to overdrive.
When starting off, you can feel every shift of gears. Also when attempting to come out of a parking space and not touching the gas pedal and have just placed the shifter in "D" the vehicle took off on its own. That could prove dangerous.
Since putting the truck in the shop, the transmission functions worse than before. It is to go back in next week. I also was told the story of how the truck must "re-learn" your driving, but I was told two hundred miles was needed to settle it down.
I am disappointed because I like my truck. After owning an '03 which had 3 rear ends replaced and an '04 which also had three rear ends placed in it due to a known defect. I am about to get a little bitter.. My truck now has 4000 miles
