Transmision Woes

2002 Ford Ranger Edge Plus 4dr SuperCab (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


I'm on my third, yes third transmission with this vehicle. I had approx. 1200 miles on it when the cap on the transmission cracked and leaked fluid. Ford replaced the whole transmission with a new one. 1000 miles later the same problem again. This time the dealer rebuilt the unit, $1624.00 in parts, and upgraded the cap. I should note that I was not the only one with this problem. Another truck came in the same day as I did with the original problem. They got the same fix and they were back within a week of my second repair for the samething.

Gas mileage is poor poor. It is rated for 28 on the highway. I do nothing but highway driving and my average mileage is 20.4

Best Features

Cd player, good heater,

Worst Features

Fix transmission woes and improve mileage. Had several leaks too from poor manufacturing.
