Terrible Automatic Transmission
By bad modulater on


2002 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XLT 2WD Styleside SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)


The transmission modulater is terrible.
It hangs up in gears or just sits in a
big dead spot and nothing changes. The
dealer "pinged" the unit but other than
that T.S. I had to accelerate quickly to
complete a merge manuever and almost got
hit because the transmission just
refused to shift down quickly. Ford has
had problems with this for years and
there is no excuse for this. I'm
getting rid of the truck.

Worst Features

I hope the new models don't have this problem.
