2004 Ford Explorer Repair Question
Ford Explorer Transmission Problem
It sounds possible. I would also recommend replacing the converter. As far as a price, it is hard to say without knowing what is wrong. A full rebuild is around 2K.
Can I drive it for a day or 2 until I get it fixed without causing damage??
That is something I can't answer. I'm not sure what the problem is. I do have a question. You said the noise was from the engine. Why did they service the transmission? Also, did the noise go away when they serviced the trans?
The noise sounded like it was coming from that area. At least the front 1/2 of the vehicle. The serviced the transmission because they said they seen a leak & it was low even though I said there were no drip spots in my driveway. I drove it home without hearing it but I described what happened the next morning. When it did engage into drive I drove onto work & felt it lag slightly a couple of times, but the noise went away.
I can't think of anything in the transmission that would make that noise and be fixed by servicing the transmission.
ok thank you, so it sounds like I have a bigger problem than the oil level. So can I safely drive it for a few days before I get it repaired? They mechanic has me believing I'll do more damage and possibly need a complete transmission repair if I drive it at all.
I hate to say it, but I would suggest having the problem repaired before driving it. It can do more damage.
Ok thank you.
Sorry for the bad news. I hope I helped.
