I PUT MY TRUCK INTO DRIVE AND IT HESITATES, JUMPS BACK AND FOURTH BEING REAL SLUGGISH. THE ONLY WAY OUT OF THIS IS TO FLOOR THE GAS AND LET IT PUSH THROUGH FOR ABOUT FIVE TO TEN SECONDS AND THEN IT IS DONE. WHICH IS HARD TO DO WHEN IT IS TIME TO TAKE MY KIDS TO SCHOOL AND I AM IN A SCHOOL ZONE. THIS IS VERY INTERMITTENT, BUT HAPPENS MORE OFTEN THAN NOT. IF I LET THE CAR REMAIN OFF FOR MORE THAN 15 MINUTES THEN THE CYCLE CAN CONTINUE. SOMETIMES IT STARTS UP AND DRIVES FINE. I NOTICE IT IS MORE AND MORE PREVALENT AS THE MILES CLIMB UP. IT HAS BEEN DOING THIS SINCE THE BEGINNING AND IS STILL DOING THIS. SINCE AROUND 20000 MILES THE TRUCK HESITATES ON THE ROAD AFTER DRIVING FOR SOMETIME. SO NOW IT HAPPENS WHENEVER IT WANTS TO. I HAVE READ ONLINE THAT THIS IS A COMMON OCCURRENCE THAT FORD KNOWS ABOUT, JUST DOESN'T ADMIT TO OR TRY TO FIX. MY BEST FRIEND HAD TO TRADE HIS TRUCK IN BECAUSE OF THIS PROBLEM. THIS HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE A PROBLEM JUST LIKE THE ACCELERATION OF THE TOYOTAS. THIS PROBLEM HAPPENS SPORADICALLY BUT IT IS MORE OFTEN THAN NOT. NOW THE TRANSMISSION IS JUMPING WHEN SLOWING DOWN OR SPEEDING UP. I WAS TOLD THIS IS NORMAL, IT IS JUST THE COMPUTER GETTING USED TO MY DRIVING. I DON'T MAKE A HABIT OF MAKING MY TRUCK HESITATE AT ALL. SO THIS IS A DUMB RESPONSE THAT ONCE AGAIN, MANY PEOPLE ONLINE GET THE SAME ANSWER. I AM NEARING MY 36000 MARK. SO I KNOW THIS IS ABOUT TO COST ME OUT OF MY OWN POCKET TO FIX BECAUSE THE FORD HOUSE WILL JUST SAY NOTHING IS WRONG AND NOT FIX IT. SO MY QUESTION IS ARE TRANSMISSIONS REALLY THIS CHEAP AND WE JUST MOVE ON AND ACCEPT THAT CRAFTSMANSHIP IN AMERICA OR DO WE MAKE FORD FIX THEIR ISSUE. I HAVE PURCHASED MANY VEHICLES THROUGHOUT MY 39 YEARS IN THIS GREAT COUNTRY. I HAVE NEVER HAD A CAR ACT LIKE THIS ON SUCH A WIDE SCALE WITH NOTHING BEING DONE ABOUT IT. PLEASE HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE.
