starts as , wont shift into 3rd gear from second , unless i take my foot ff accelerator, and gets to the point where it wont shift at all. reverse gear seems to be none functional. and jerking starts from there on with no power in trans
Wrench light on dash. Transmission will not shift into third gear.
Rpm reeve really high when transmission is trying to shift
Car does not upshift after 2nd gear.
Sometimes will fall out of 2nd gear as if in neutral. When shifting into reverse, the car jolts.
This is not a mechanical issue (gears/clutch plates/etc.) Strongly believe it is an electrical problem (sensors) and/or valve body.
Repairs I hear are several thousand dollars on up to 9 thousand. You people are ignorant, stupid, insane, or liars! Grow up America. Labor...10 hours @ 60/hr. Rebuilt transaxle...1000.
under 2000 fixes any transmission problem, even if it fell out of car and you lost it.
STOP RIPPING PEOPLE OFF!
STOP GETTING RIPPED OFF!
when car is started then put in reverse its agressive where the tires will break loose, then when put in
drive it either is in 2nd gear or 1st gears slipping it will correct it self but sometimes it takes awhile
im really pist about this..
The transmission needs to be replaced on a 2010 Ford Fusion after 60,000 miles. The transmission struggles to upshift until third gear and then kicks in. The transmission slips randomly while shifting during drive. The transmission slips occasionally when downshifting to a complete stop.
Melted wiring and a transmission sleeve
Bought used. Smelling hot oil. Drips in driveway. Part fell off. Took it to reputable local shop and they said PTU is burnt up. Dealer we bought it from had it before for the oil drip and DID NOT find the problem. Or did not want to find the problem. Over 60 days now so we are screwed. $1000+ to repair.
2009 model....Slipping in 5th gear. 6 years old and the dealer just quoted $6400 to replace transmission. Catastrophic failure. The fix cost is more than the car is worth.
First problem was transfer case cracked. Also noticed transmission jerking and shifting hard between lower gears. (Car is automatic)
Ford dealership wouldn't acknowledge the problem or offer a solution.
Fusion had been taken back to dealership multiple times since purchase to have transmission evaluated for shifting hard. Assured me that the transmission was functioning properly. It most definitely isn't.
Now, transmission is slipping horribly. Calling my mechanic tomorrow. Will never recommend a fusion. I've only owned Ford vehicles...thinking about switching to something else for next car purchase.
Just bought a 2008 fusion only to discover 2 weeks later the car needs new transmission and electrical system. 4000.00 on top of the 9000.00 I just got a loan for the loan.
Car stuck in 1st gear or 2nd gear will drive up to 40 miles an hour and RPM 4. won't change gears.
No warning just stopped dead very scary.
tranny bangs when downshifting for 2nd to first ( auto 6 speed) dealear cant find any problems
Shifting up in 3rd and 4th gear is delayed
Shifts hard at times. Splits too.
engine over-revving,mainly when cold.after it run for awhile problem goes away; tranny problems occurs about once every couple of month.
At 74,000 miles had the automatic transmission replaced. Was shifting very hard between second & third. Sometimes, however, it seemed to hang up between first & second. Didn't seem to matter if it was city driving or getting on or off the highway. Fusion now has 145,000 miles on it, seems to still be okay but now I worry it'll go again.
tranny kept slipping..dashboard tool light came on indicating problem..had to have transmission replaced. it's at about 55,000 miles now and so far so good.
