1-2 Shift problems
Posted 14 May 2012 - 09:37 PM
The car is newly in SoCal and I want to get the ball started on the fix. Any update on a TSB? Extremely protective of this car so want top service and treatment but don't want to grind the gears from 1 to 2 anymore.

Just get a MGW shifter and that should solve it. I've drag raced my car and found that if I just concentrate on shifting smoothly (not power/speed shifting) I don't have a problem with the 1 - 2 shift.

I did enjoy seeing those 1st 2nd and 3rd chirp posi patches on the pavement. I know when I see some nice strips from others I always wonder what in the world could melt'em off like that.!

+1 , my buddy just got turned away with his 2012 from a dealership.
Luckily (I guess) mine only does it when its cold. Took a couple grinds to figure that out, but once its warm no issue. I am going to try the amsol fluid change. Hopefully some day Ford will step up and fix the problem. Fluid and or a WOT box is a band-aid not a permanent solution.

It's a shame a nice car has this glaring issue. Pretty much over shadows all the good things about it.

I have a similar problem with my 2010. Grinds more on corners and are sporadic. I have ground it at various RPM's and shifting style (fast/slow). Mine started the grind at about 3K and now I have 8K on it. Seems to be progressively getting worse. Was out the other day with my daughter and out of 20 1-2 shifts, it ground once. My dealer says that when I bring it in and if it does not grind, then there is nothing they can do. He has offered his transmission guy to go for a ride but again if it won't do it on that drive, then I am back to square one. Has FORD or TREMEC ever come out and stated what the root cause is? Was it a material, design, or manufacturing issue or all 3? I have seen a several posts with parts generally replaced. Are these new and improved parts or just new parts of the same design, material etc.

What other forums are you referrging to. I am interested in that I am getting ready to do battle with my dealer if need be and would like more info on replacement of the clutch and shifter assembly with the 2013 model along with fixing my transmission.

Interestingly once my tranny is warm it shift just like the video. You can catch the boost gauge in the corner of the screen. He is into boost at the shift. I guess am lucky I guess. I know one thing if I have been sitting a a cruise in for awhile and someone talks smack. I wont hit the street and run'em.. once cold grrrrrrrind and refuses to go into 2nd. I am doing the Amsoil fluid change.. cant hurt anything maybe a "better" fluid will help when cold.
