2006 Mercury Milan Q&A
2006 Mercury Milan Question: no/hard shifts while going up hill. Took to dealer,told nothing wrong. Thoughts?
I have 74k miles and this just recently started happening. This jerking/hard shifting ALWAYS happens when I'm going up mountain hills and it seems like it happens when I'm in 4th gear and need to drop back into 3rd to get more acceleration. It makes a thumping sound and jerks the car, and mostly never gets into the needed gear. I already took it to the Lakewood Ford, off of 6th and Sims, but was told nothing was wrong and they even did a $160 DIAGNOSTIC TEST... Any help, suggestions would be MUCH appreciated!!

is this a cvt trans? - globalhelper
Did you ever get to go on a test drive with a tech at the dealer to show them the symptoms and conditions? Is it consistent enough ? - ziptie12
My car is doing this to.. i was told to try a tranny flush or the valve body needs to be replaced. :( loved this car until this started happening and now i wish i never bought it. of course it started after my warrenty was up. Its at least going to run you almost 1000 for a valve body. id look around for a used tranny. - imkayla119
