Expedition and F-Series use the same transmission, but not always the same shift strategy and 5 years is a long period of time between the two. You also didn't say which engine your 11 has, and those differences can be compounded by the difference between the two engines. I can almost guarantee that your Expedition has a higher stall speed torque converter. I say all this because from your description, it SOUNDS like the torque converter clutch is locking in 3rd and you are seeing it on the Tach which is 100% normal operation. It does not lockup cold, as the engine and trans need to get to temperature as quickly as possible. Once it meets those temp thresholds, it starts allowing normal lockup strategy. The consistency you describe sure sounds like it is.
Of course, that is without me actually driving it. What needs to happen is a test drive and watch what the PCM is actually commanding vs what the trans and converter are actually doing, something any trans tech can do.
Ok, here is the picture, taken from the passenger side.
- "sound" is the rear damper by the engine and transmission.
- "bolt" is what i think is the drain bolt. If it is, what is the drain plug size?
- "beam" is the I think cross link beam, which lines up perfectly with the drain plug.
If it is right, I think I am going to change the bolt with either fumoto drain plug or something similar for easier drain next time.
Thanks in advance.
New owner, and really new to Ford/Lincoln. Quick question on the oil drain plug location.
Plug is located on the passenger side, correct? Is it the plug right by where you see the engine and transmission comes together (right in front of the transmission starts)? When I looked up, it looks like it drain may interfere with a beam, which looks like perfectly lines up with oil drain plug?
Just doesn't look like it, and want to make sure I pull the right plug.
When the current Conti was first introduced, I chatted with a Lincoln rep who was training the staff at my dealership. He told me that suicide doors were considered and there were prototypes. According to him, they never made it to production for the reasons others have mentioned here. Instead, they made the back doors on the production model open wider than most to assist with rear entry.
Customer satisfaction programs, warranty extensions, compliance recalls, safety recalls, emissions recalls all are "campaigns" or "FSA"- Field Service Action. The VIN you provided is NOT covered by 16N02.
Your BEST hope is contacting Ford Customer Care, and asking them to help, showing build date, and that your CPO ESP ran out in September. Your dealer might help, but there isn't much he can do with it NOT on OASIS.
