2004 Ford F150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 87000 miles
My truck is experiencing an interesting issue. When the vehicle warms up and I come to a stop upon take off slow or fast the truck jerks 3 or 4 times.
I can start in 1st or 2nd and shift up to drive with no problems on acceleration. In drive, during acceleration or deceleration, the truck feels like it doesn’t know when to shift. (Taking over drive off made no difference).
I have checked the u joints thinking that might have been the problem but there is no slip on the drive shaft. I think it might be a module or sensor that tells the truck when to shift but I’m just hoping the transmission isn’t ruined.
I have verified the fluid is full and is cherry colored and does not smell burnt. Hopefully it’s something external that I can replace and be done with.
Thanks for any help
have the same problem?
