This happens intermittently but has been is most frequent on start up when car is parked in driveway on slight hill.
Ford wants to install a new transmission solenoid body, but I fear that this will not solve the problem. The cost to do the repair is $370.
In addition, we have a leaking powers steering pump and leaking coolant gasket. Total bill for all repair comes in at $1930. Is it worth it?

    talk with the service writer and make it perfectly clear that if this trans repair doesn't work they will either not charge you or will fix other issues at n/c. get it in writing.as far as other repairs your car is 8 yrs old and needs some tlc,thats up to u
