Transmission Problems Common Due to Front Pump Failure on Ford Crown Victoria

Transmission problems are common in this model, often as a result of a failed front pump. The pump loses its ability to create hydraulic pressure, which an automatic transmission needs to function. A sign of front pump failure can be a whine type noise.

Transmission would slip on hard right or left turns... you would feel the transmission drop into a lower gear when you came to a complete stop... replaced /rebuilt transmission... extremely costly
Whining noise occurs when accelerating. Does not happen when when coasting. Problem has not been repaired
