I have the same hard clunk, however not necessarily shifting from Park... It also happens from changing from any shift position. I also have transmission slippage intermittently during rain or wet road conditions... But not in dry conditions. It concerns me the immediate remedy is to swap out the transmission, clearly it's a sensor issue, but what one?

My wife was driving her 2008 Ford Edge and she rolled up to a stop light and all of a sudden the wrench light came on, airbag light, the mileage odometer blanked out and the speedometer stopped working.. She stared to go and there was a loss of power. She pulled into the nearest parking lot and stopped to see what was wrong. She tried putting the car back into gear and the transmission made a huge jerk into any gear she switched it to.. I got it towed to a transmission shop my parents have used before.. They cleared the code that came from the speed sensor and now everything is fine. They are going to test it out again tomorrow. Kinda scary

Experience the difficulty of shifting out of park and when the shifter does move, there is a loud clunking noise. Have not had it looked at or repaired yet. Didn't realize this could be universal problem.

Once I move the gear to drive the sound hard, does this mean that my 2007 ford edge has an fiber or sensor problem? What I meant is hard shift out of park. Is been off and on now. I had to park the vehicle for now.please I need an answer to this problem.

I started have problems over a year ago with the car not shifting into gear when starting it. Once I turned the car off and turned back on it seemed to be fine. Took to dealer and they couldn't find any codes or anything wrong. It continued to shift rough and seemed to get worse, but no mechanic could find anything wrong. Two weeks ago while driving down I-5 the speedometer dropped to zero and we got the little wrench light. At this point the car is still driving down the freeway, but since it was pouring rain we decided it would be better to stop at the rest area. Once we did that the car wouldn't move at all and every time we shifted the car it would clunk and jerk the car. We tried turning it off and on, but nothing worked. We had it towed to the dealership and they replaced two sensor in the transmission and ended up costing us over $700. This was not covered under our extended warranty because it is an electrical problem. I still feel like the car shits funny, but have only driven it a few miles since getting it back. I know one thing for sure, I will not be keeping this car past our extended warranty.

when shifting from park the vehicle has a loud clunk that can be felt by the driver. Took vehicle to dealer. They replaced two speed sensors. Be warned, they will not fix it if there aren't any trouble codes.

Auto transmission appears to stay in 1st gear, wrench on dash lights up. When driver pulls over and puts it in park a hard shift is felt. Car must be restarted and put back into drive. Normally car will be fine to drive. This occurs 2-3 times per month. However this morning car only stays in neutral position although gear shift shifts without problem the engine/transmission does not. Now the wrench light on the dash is lit as well as the engine light.

Speedometer went to 0 and lights came on dash. Airbag light, low tire pressure light, wrench light. Transmission shift made clunking sound and car seemed to be stuck in second gear. Dealer replaced sensors in transmission they said they shorted out.

Loud noise and jump when switching gears. Sensors in transmission replaced under extended warranty I purchased.

Frequent hard shift from low gear to drive. More frequent when driving in slow traffic. Makes same clanging noise shifting out of park to drive, but not as frequent. Talked with Ford personnel who diagnosed a shift linkage adjustment, a power transfer problem or sensor problem. The problem has not been fixed. It was barely of of warranty and the cost would have been more than I could afford.

For years I have had this clunk hard shift out and into park...Wrench showing on dashboard. Took to dealership but of course they found nothing....$100 a pop two times and nothing.
Loud clunking sound when putting it in reverse. Began doing it with less than 15000 miles on the vehicle. Taken it in twice now. The first time they found nothing.. The second time they said it was a seal and was low on transmission fluid... The next day.. It's doing the same thing. Today it won't shift into reverse... Won't be buying a Ford ever again!
