1999 Ford Econoline Cargo E-350 Super Duty 3dr Ext Van
This van has to have a new tranny every summer! I have 82,000 miles on it and have had 4 tranny's put in. They have a transmission fluid over heating problem. It gets too hot and the cooler is too small; gets plugged and fries the tranny. Got tired of dealer so passed on having them stick in another bad tranny. Put in our own cooler, switched to synthetic fluid. So far so good. Van has serious tranny problems and service has really stunk. This is the first year we have so far so good got through the summer. Never again! What a nightmare this van has been. Run like the wind...
I liked the body style better than other large vans. Seats are nice and comfy. The V10 is nice for getting up and going.
TRANSMISSION! Ford really needs to fix their constant transmission problem. Make a bigger Transmission cooler with bigger tubing so it won't plug. Recommended fluid expands and blows seals. Suggest synthetic fluid.
