Ford transmission repair is an area of expertise for Advanced Transmission Center. One reason is the volume of Fords on the road. Ford is consistently one of the highest selling manufacturers in the United States.
Trucks | Ford F150 Transmission Repairs
Our team rebuilds numerous Ford transmissions yet the model we see with the highest frequency is the Ford F-150. Our F-150 transmission repair knowledge comes from repairing hundreds of F-Series pickup trucks in our history. The F-Series line of pickup trucks has been the best-selling truck line for over 40 years, so we’ve seen every transmission installed in this truck from the common 4R70 models to the recent 10R80 transmissions. Heavy duty units include the 4R100, 5R110 and 6R140. Dating further back, we continue to see the E40D transmission found in heavy duty trucks manufactured in the 1980s & 1990s making its way into our shops. Light duty models such as the older Ford Ranger possessing a 4R55E are also common visitors to our Denver repair facilities. For Ford truck transmission repair, our in-house rebuild department is your best solution.
Ford SUV Transmission Repairs
Colorado roads are filled with sports-utility vehicles such as the Ford Explorer, Ford Escape, Ford Edge, Ford Flex and Ford Expedition. Transmission repair on these vehicles are common because Colorado driving conditions can be tough on vehicles, especially the transmission. Moreover, certain Ford transmissions have a reputation for premature failure. For example, Ford Explorers between 2002 and 2004 face frequent failure relating to a malfunctioning solenoid block. In low mileage situations, a 5R55S transmission repair or 5R55W transmission repair could be completed with something as minor as changing out a bad solenoid block. However, we would recommend a comprehensive transmission rebuild with genuine Ford parts for SUVs with high mileage.
In recent years Ford’s luxury line, Lincoln, is more represented by high-end SUVs. Our team’s experience with Lincoln transmission repair is also significant especially with the long-standing Lincoln Navigator line. The transmissions used in these vehicles are the same as those found in Ford trucks. This includes the 4R75, 4R100, ZF6HP26 and the recent 10-speed 10R80 transmission. Additional Lincoln SUVs include the Lincoln Aviator, Lincoln MKC, Lincoln MKT and Lincoln MKX; each of these should receive a transmission service at regular intervals. We recommend a transmission fluid service every 30,000 miles unless the vehicle application requires shorter intervals. Off-roading activities or frequent trips into the mountains warrant shorter interval maintenance fluid services.
Ford Passenger Car Transmission Repairs
With an extensive list of passenger cars in its history, Ford provided customers numerous options including the Ford Taurus, Ford Fusion, Ford Focus and the popular Ford Mustang. Another iconic passenger vehicle in the Ford legacy is the Crown Victoria. Due to its application in law enforcement, the Crown Victoria often possessed transmissions normally founds in trucks. Its cousin, the Lincoln Continental, also set the standard for luxury passenger cars. It similarly came with hefty transmission models more commonly found in larger vehicles.
Although Ford has walked away from producing new passenger cars, countless Ford cars remain on the road. Transmission repair on Ford cars require more than just transmission rebuild experience. The removal of a bad transmission and installation of a rebuilt transmission is sometimes just as complicated as the rebuilding process itself. Experience across the various vehicles in the Ford lineup help our Certified Transmission Specialists provide our Colorado and Denver customers quality workmanship and Fast Service.
Trust Your Local Ford Drivetrain Experts
Many of Ford trucks and SUVs in Colorado rely on 4×4 capabilities to handle the local conditions. It is just as important to maintain the 4WD/AWD system as it is the transmission. Often a transmission is misdiagnosed as faulty when a transfer case is the real culprit. This can be a costly mistake! Our team has successfully completed hundreds of Ford transfer case / PCU rebuilds. We also regularly service and repair Ford differentials, especially on trucks and SUVs. Differential repair is difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to repair once damaged. Failure of these parts in the Ford drivetrain can be delayed or even prevented with periodic inspection and servicing of the fluid. It is more important than ever to trust your transmission and drivetrain to specialists rather than general mechanics or dealerships. For example, recent Ford transmissions such as the 6F35/6F50 units are designed with advanced solenoids and electronics.
These Ford transmissions require special OEM programming and relearn procedures. If these processes are skipped or incorrectly completed, you can count on a premature failure of your transmission. Challenges relating to electrical complexity of transmissions continue to increase, so turn to your local Ford transmission specialists for honest communication, industry-leading expertise and fast service!
Ford transmissions have come a long way since the original Ford-O-Matic, Cruise-O-Matic, and FMX transmissions from the 1950s through the 1980s. The C3, C4, C6, AOD and A4LD during these years saw a transition from 2-speed transmissions to 4-speed models by the turn of the century. These technological advances set the technological foundation for 6-speed, 8-speed and 10-speed modern transmissions.
