2011 Ford E-350 ProblemsThe Transmission Does Not Shift Correctly out of First Gear
This concern related to the 4R100 automatic transmission typically seen mated to the 5.4L V8, 6.8L V10, and 7.3L Turbo Diesel. If the transmission does not shift correctly out of first gear, a “one-way” clutch inside the transmission may have failed. If the transmission fluid condition is good, and other failures are not found upon transmission tear down, the one-way clutch may be replaced along with the drum and friction plates. Our technicians note this is a major internal transmission repair.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate, the engine may run rough and have misfires on acceleration. Commonly the ignition coils and/or the ignition coil boots are the cause of this problem. The rubber boot that insulates the coil to the spark plug can dry and crack allowing arcing. Inspect the coils and boots, and replace them as needed. Our technicians also recommend replacing the coil boots any time the spark plugs are replaced.

2011 Ford E-350 RecallsWheel Chair Lift Platform May Fall From Lift
On wheel chair lift equipped vehicles, the lifts have folding link arms that may have pivot holes that are too big, allowing the bearings to move out of position. This can result in the lift platform falling from the vehicle. Dealers will inspect the link arms for damage or for displaced bearings. The platform will be inspected for cracks, and any damaged parts will be replaced free of charge to resolve the concern.
For vehicles modified for use with wheel chairs, the wheel chair platform side plates may crack, resulting in the platform separating from the wheel chair lift. Dealers will replace any platform that has started cracking, and will install supplemental platform support bumpers free of charge to resolve the concern.
