F150 Auto Trans Solenoid(s) went bad; dropped out of gear

I hope I can keep somebody from getting in a bind over this. My 2002 F150
SuperCrew had (one or more) bad transmission solenoid. The thing would slip
out of gear while driving. Almost always the engine/trans was hot, like
while driving at fast speeds on a hot day. Once it started, there was almost
no stopping it. I found (while waiting for Ford to schedule me an
appointment) that if I let it cool off for 30 minutes or so, it would work OK
again.

Then when I took it in, the technician gave it NPF (No Problem Found) After
going through this 3 times I finally took it to a trans shop. They had to
wheel and deal with the Extended Warranty company (Enterprise Sales) and
finally did a full rebuild on the tranny.

When I got it back (9 days later) and drove it off it immediately did the
same thing. Took it back, next day it worked OK. The tech told me that in
his "FULL REBUILD" he had not replaced the electrical solenoids (even though
his estimate/quote said that they were included in the rebuild.) They
replaced the turkeys and it has worked perfectly until now; about 30000 miles
later.

Hope I can save somebody else the frustration.

Mark
