2004 Ford Freestar Problems
On higher mileage vehicles, one or more EGR orifice in the intake manifold may plug with sludge. This can cause the engine to misfire when first accelerating because too much exhaust gas is directed into the cylinders where the orifice is not plugged. Cleaning the clogged passages should correct this concern.
Runs fine for an hour or so. Then (not always) hesitates from 1st to 2nd gear (40 to 45 mph), rpms run up, You let off the gas peddle a little and it jumps into 2nd gear, then runs fine.
1st time this began I changed the transmission fluid and this stopped it for a while. Also replaced the Coil after the code showed up.
Had no new code show since, but jumping still persists.
Any help would be much appreciated.

2004 Ford Freestar Recalls
The third row seat can experience rust at the seat anchor mechanism mounted to each rear wheel well. As a result, the seat may not fully latch into its seating position. If the vehicle is hit from the rear, an unlatched seat may increase the risk of injury. Dealers will install new third row seat latch striker mounting brackets to correct this concern.
On certain vehicles, the torque convertor output shaft may fail, resulting in complete loss of power to the drive wheels. This vehicle stalling condition increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the torque convertor to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 11S25.
The brake lines may have been improperly routed and may chafe on the sway bar. This can cause the lines to develop a brake fluid leak. Dealers will inspect the routing of the lines and secure them if no chafing is found. If chafing is found, affected brake lines will be replaced free of charge to resolve the problem.
2004 Ford Freestar Reviews
This is the WORST minivan I've ever had. It has had 2 transmissions replaced, steering went out,brakes are not the greatest, air conditioning went out twice. And check engine light stays on constantly no matter what I do, and the transaxle light continues to blink non stop. JUNK!
Just over 100k and the engine is shot. Gas mileage was never too good 15 mi average. Brakes have never been that good either. pedal goes most of the way to the floor.
